Dans Locmelis, a promising prospect for the Boston Bruins, showcased his legitimate top-nine potential in the recent tournament, solidifying the belief that UMass has secured a talented player for the upcoming season.

What sets Locmelis apart is his ability to adapt swiftly to the NCAA game, a characteristic often seen in European players. His willingness to engage in play below the circles demonstrates his versatility and commitment to making an impact on the ice.

However, this tournament also brings the news that Locmelis will not be signing an NHL contract with the Bruins. Instead, he has chosen to pursue his hockey career at the university level. While this means Bruins fans will have to wait a bit longer to see him in action at the professional level, it presents an exciting opportunity for Locmelis to further develop his skills and contribute to UMass's success.

Notably, Locmelis represented Latvia in the tournament and played a crucial role in helping his team secure the bronze medal. In the nine games he participated in, he tallied an impressive three points, further underlining his potential and making him a player to keep an eye on in the future.
