Ryan Brushett commits to RPI
The grad transfer adds another top 6 forward to the Engineers
At the end of March, RPI landed a transfer portal commitment from UMass Lowell senior Ryan Brushett. Brushett is a RW listed at 6’0” and 183 LBs, and he has had a productive 4 years of college. He transferred to Lowell following his sophomore year at Omaha. Last season was one plagued by injuries, and he ended up with 1 goal, 9 assists and 10 points in 24 games. The year before that, he had a great year with 8 goals, 14 assists and 22 points in 35 games. In total, he has 57 career points in college.
Before his college days, Brushett was considered a very good recruit and was even rated a 4.25 star by Neutral Zone. The year before going to Omaha, he was second in the entire BCHL with 84 points, and his 41 goals led the league.
Brushett is a speedy and skilled forward with great passing ability. Over his 4 years, he has been great at setting up his teammates for goals, leading to 45 total assists. He creates a lot of scoring chances, not just for himself but also his teammates. This allows him to mesh with a variety of playing styles and be versatile on his line. Expect the coaching staff to use his versatility to mix and match him with different players until they find lines that work.
Overall, Brushett seems like a really good forward who will add some skill to the lineup in the top 6. He is experienced and has produced over his entire collegiate career at both Omaha and Lowell. Brushett will be counted on to play a key role for the Engineers this fall. Based on what we know, I expect him to deliver and can’t wait to see him at RPI. Congratulations to Ryan and his family!
