Former St. Cloud State captain and All-America defenseman Jack Ahcan has seen three levels of pro hockey this season as a rookie. He has played for the Jacksonville Icemen (ECHL), Providence Bruins (AHL) and the Boston Bruins (NHL). The 23-year-old from Savage, Minn., talks about some of the adventures during his rookie season. He also talks about watching his former Huskies teammates reach the NCAA Division I championship game for the first time, a friendly wager with a Bruins teammate, a few of his first purchases as a pro and more.
