Primeau was stellar during his brief college career.

The following season Primeau pushed the Huskies even further, winning a program record 25 games and earning the Tournament MVP when Northeastern won the third Hockey East tournament in program history. Primeau's team once again faltered in the NCAA tournament but that did not stop him from being named an AHCA East First Team All-American and winning the Mike Richter Award.
