BOSTON - Mason Lohrei had a season to remember for the Green Bay Gamblers.
The Wisconsin native led all USHL defensemen with 19 goals, 40 assists, 59 points, and six game-winning tallies in 48 games during the 2020-21 campaign. Lohrei also set a franchise record for points in a season by a defenseman and finished his tenure with the Gamblers ranking second in club history among defensemen with 27 goals, 69 assists, and 96 points.
It was a striking offensive uptick for the blue liner, who had notched just eight goals and 37 points in the same number of games in 2019-20. But the Bruins top pick in the 2020 NHL Draft (58th overall) believes it was his work in the defensive zone that set him apart and led him to become a force at the opposite end of the rink.
