Star You See: Kevin Bendel


Bendal has had a breakout season

Junior net minder Kevin Bendel has had an excellent season thus far. In 10 total appearances, 7 of them coming in conference play, Bendal has a stellar 2.58 GAA with a nifty 7-3-0 record. For his career, he has one career shutout and a .902 save percentage in 30 games played. Kevin Bendal shared his thoughts with the Mass Media;

What do you attribute to the team’s excellent season so far?

Definitely our depth. We have 6 lines of forwards, 4 sets of D, and 2 goalies who are all able to play and produce night in and night out.


What made you come to UMB?

The up-and-coming hockey program for sure but being in the city of Boston helped immensely.


What do you do to get ready for a game?

I’ll choose the music for the locker room on days that I start and start getting dressed about an hour before warm-ups.


One weird fact about you

I’m a clean freak.
