According to John Buccigross of ESPN, the Western Michigan Broncos will be losing two of their top forwards.

‘Bucci’ posted a tweet today saying that Trenton native Griffen Molino will be signing with the Vancouver Canucks, while Brownstown native Matheson Iacopelli will be signing with the Chicago Blackhawks – the club that drafted him in the third round of the 2014 NHL Draft.

Molino would be a free-agent acquisition of the Canucks.

Iacopelli posted 36 points in 40 games with the Broncos this past season, while Molino recorded 33.
