Position: Defense

Year in School: Senior


  • 37 points in 36 games played (11 goals, 26 assists)
  • All-time leader among ASU defensemen in all offensive categories with games played (136), points (107), assists (68)
  • Only player in program history with 100+ points

Best moments of the season:

There are a number of moments that stick out in Brinson Pasichnuk’s tenured four-year career on the ice in Tempe, including the first postseason goal in program history, but when specifically looking at 2019-20, there was one that was true icing on the cake.

In his final home series ever at Oceanside Ice Arena, Pasichnuk had a hat trick against Alaska Anchorage, and he earned his 100th career point over the course of two games during his senior weekend.

He had a whole platoon of family and friends in attendance from Canada, and he capped off his final homestand in memorable fashion. All of his accolades ultimately led to the captain’s agreement to terms to play at the next level with the San Jose Sharks organization.
