Your Goodwin Group sponsored Manchester Storm are thrilled to announce the former University of Vermont Captain, Mario Puskarich.

The dual national (American and Croatian) has split his professional career between North America and the European continent. An impressive junior career was rewarded with a place on the University of Vermont’s roster from 2013 to 2017. During this time Pukskarich iced on 138 occasions and produced 117 points (52G 65A). Following the completion of his academic studies the forward signed with ECHL outfit Manchester Monarchs and went on to make 11 appearances before heading across the Atlantic.

A move to EBEL outfit Medvescak Zagreb, in the 2017-18 season, would be Puskarich’s first in Europe. However, an injury curtailed this first full season of professional hockey and he went on to make just 32 appearances producing 5 points (2G 3A) in that time period.

The 2018-19 season would be one of change for Puskarich, despite returning to Zagreb for a second season, financial issues for the Croatian based side left many players without a contract and he returned to the Monarchs.
