Hockey program honored

From Mirror reports

UNIVERSITY PARK — Senior Nate Sucese and junior Cole Hults recently became Penn State’s first-ever All-Americans for the school’s ice hockey program.

Sucese and Hults landed on the Second-Team West.

Sucese, who inked a one-year, entry-level contract with the Arizona Coyotes back in March, became the fourth Nittany Lion in program history to reach the 100-point mark in March of 2019 after a career-high 19-goal season where he added 18 assists.

Hults, a finalist for both the Big Ten Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, tied the Penn State single-season record for points by a defenseman with 30 this past season.

The four-year starter led Penn State to a 62-17-4 record in his time in Happy Valley, including four-straight NCAA Tournament appearances and a trip to the national semifinal in 1979 with an upset of No. 1 Indiana. Canter scored 18 goals for the Nittany Lions as a defensive player.
