Vinnie Hinostroza hit the ground running. In the first half of his first season with the Irish, the freshman center from Bartlett, Illinois quickly became one of the team’s leading scorers, sat out for a month on injury, recovered from said injury, and was then selected as part of Team USA for the IIHA World Junior Championships in Malmo, Sweden. Here’s the Two-Minute Power Play with Vinnie Hinostroza.
