2007-08: In his junior season at Choate, Mark Goggin led the varsity team in scoring.
2008-09: Goggin played the first five games of the season for Chicago before returning to Choate Rosemary Hall to finish his senior season as captain of the varsity team. He posted 14 goals and 20 assists there. Those numbers, along with his great hands and impressive hockey sense got him named to the All-West New England All-Star team. He not only has speed, but also has enough strength to be a competitive power forward. In March, he returned to the Steel and began to settle into a comfortable role by the end of the season. After going without a point in his first five games back, he finished strong with eight points (4 goals, 4 assists) in the final seven games, for a total of nine points in 17 games.
2009-2010: Goggin played his first season with Dartmouth College of the ECAC, scoring four goals and two assists in 21 games played. Two of his goals came against Vermont in his first multiipoint game with Dartmouth.
2010-11: Goggin suffered a serious wrist injury and missed his entire sophomore season at Dartmouth. He attended the Bruins' spring prospect camp and should be able to play in 2011-12.
2011-12: Returning after a full season of inactivity, Goggin provided offense immediately when inserted into the Dartmouth lineup in mid-season. He scored goals in back-to-back games against Cornell and Colgate in January and posting points in five straight games (2 goals with 3 assists). Overall, he appeared in just 14 games for the Big Green as a junior and scored 3 goals with 3 assists and was an even plus/minus with 16 penalty minutes and did not see any action during the ECAC Hockey tournament. Dartmouth finished ninth in ECAC Hockey and after an upset win over St. Lawrence in the first round of the league tournament fell to Cornell in the quarterfinals.
Goggin is an undersized playmaker at Dartmouth College. He’s been injured frequently and appears to have regressed some since his draft year. At his best, he’s a puck-possession type, carrying the puck, directing the play, and finding the open man. But he lacks the speed, strength and/or dynamic stickhandling ability to create the time and space he needs to control the play and make things happen.
Goggin will return to Dartmouth for his Junior season, but a pro future is slowly slipping away.
