The rookie forward came to Wichita last season after playing a four-year career at UMass-Amherst where he served as the team’s captain during his junior and senior campaigns. Iacobellis finished with 87 points (31g-56a) in 139 career games for the Minutemen, tallying 20 or more points four straight years. He led the team with 21 points (8g-13a) during his senior year and earned an invite to Vancouver Canucks development camp last July.
