Minnesota State defenseman and Sean Flanagan and forward Michael Huntebrinker, who just wrapped up their college careers, have turned pro, both signing with the ECHL's Reading Royals.
They were part of a senior class that won 98 games at MSU as well as two WCHA regular-season titles and two league tournament championships.
Huntebrinker had 15 goals and 38 assists in 124 career games. He was an alternate captain this season and a three-time WCHA All-Academic selection.
Flanagan had 13 goals and 41 assists in 140 career games. He, too, was an alternate captain this season and a three-time All-Academic pick. He blocked 138 shots and was plus-23 for his career. He already has played in one game for Reading.
The duo will join former teammate Johnny McInnis on the Royals' roster. McInnes, who was a senior when they were freshmen, was traded to Reading earlier this season from Utah. He started the season in Orlando.
