Men's Hockey Reveals Class of 2020
"Brad Dexter, Stavros Paskaris and I are eager to bring in this class and build upon our upward momentum. It was evident in the strength of last year's recruiting class that we are on the right track with bringing in the right young men, as players and people to this program. We will see what this class can bring to the program early on with the Ivy Jamboree and our trip to Michigan State. I know they will be able to grasp the current systems and add to our overall skill.”
