Bucks first-ever captain Briggs Gammill enjoys a big weekend with Yale

It hasn’t been the season that Briggs Gammill and the Yale University Bulldogs were hoping for, but they did enjoy some success this weekend.

Yale came into the weekend with a 5-17-1 record on the season — before picking up back-to-back wins on Friday and Saturday.

Gammill, who was named the Cranbrook Bucks first-ever captain on Nov. 5, 2020, played a key role in both of the Bulldogs victories.

Yale defeated Union College 3-2 on Friday night, and Gammill recorded two assists in the contest — including a helper on the game-winning goal.

Then on Saturday, the Bulldogs beat RPI by a 5-2 final, and Gammill once again played a key role.

He scored twice in the contest, notching the game-winning goal at 1:01 of the third period, and tallied again at 3:03 of the final frame.

A four-point weekend gives the New Canaan, CT native three goals and nine assists for 12 points through 24 games in his first season with Yale.

Gammill was set to be a key figure in the Bucks inaugural season in 2020-21, as he recorded four goals and seven assists for 11 points in eight exhibition contests.

He left the team last February — three months after provincial COVID-19 restrictions paused the Bucks season, which continued for another two months after his departure.

Gammill joined the Connecticut Jr Rangers of the NCDC where he put up two goals and nine assists for 11 points in seven games.

He added another goal and five assists in four playoff games with the Jr Rangers.
