We recently reported that the Quad City Mallards, for whom Matt Radoslovich played the past two seasons, were disbanded when the Calgary Flames moved their AHL affiliate to that city. Rad, one of only a few unrecruited walk-ons in recent memory to play for the Terriers, now has a new hockey home. He’s still “for the birds” but this season it will be in California as a member of the Fresno Falcons of the ECHL. Radoslovich, a former New Jersey high school Player of the Year at Bergen Catholic, was recommended to Jack Parker by a former BU football player whose identify never was determined.
Speaking of the now-defunct Mallards, Rad’s teammate, ex-BU goalie Jason Tapp, ignited a mini-brawl last season between the Mallards and Rockford Icehogs last season, which has been posted to YouTube (below).
