Azevedo commits to Brockport




The Tampa Bay Juniors are proud to announce that forward Livio Azevedo has committed to play next season with SUNY Brockport. Brockport is located in Western New York.


“I am very grateful that TBJ, offered me a key forward position in the first line and brought me into their hockey family.” Stated Livio. “Great people and environment to be in. The coaching team has built a superior program, offering every player opportunities to enhance themselves and excel. Coupled with a state of the art facility, there are ample opportunities to get better on and off the ice.

“We were very fortunate to land a player of Livio’s talents!” Remarked Head Coach Garrett Strot. “Livio is one of the most complete players I have coached. He is a complete 200 foot player and the ultimate team guy! Livio will be an impact for Brockport from day one and be an assest not only to the hockey team but the school.”

“I came in with a strong foundation in the cognitive, neurological and athletic side of the game. For me it is important to keep working on those areas and that was the first and only place in junior hockey where I could do so, and where my talent was recognized and appreciated.” Continued Azevedo. “Especially with Brett who specialises his knowledge on the cognitive side, and speed of the game. Garrett and Brett assisted us through the season and we all can agree that we improved every single day. They knew what to do and respected every single players area of opportunity and worked on it individually. It was by far my best year with the greatest staff and teammates in junior hockey and I take every single moment with me. I wanna thank Tasha and Kuba for their great support, and a big thank you to Kevin being in the office every day doing the administration. The biggest thank you goes to the Strots, all their effort and passion behind what they do is enormous, a lot of respect to all of you!”

“I visited Brockport the first time I came to the States. It is a good place to study and pursue my passion for hockey at the same time. They have a solid sports management program and a great hockey facility, which allow me to focus on my education and hockey equally.”

The Tampa Bay Juniors wish Livio the best of luck as he continues his hockey journey!

“It is with gratitude and appreciation that I embarked on the next steps in my journey and am grateful for the TBJ team and all you have done for me.”

Gershon returns to Chatham

 


Michael Gershon ('09) was an impressive hard-hitting defenseman for the Golden Eagles. In 2008, he scored a hat trick (the first Brockport blueliner to ever do so) in a 7-2 demolition of Geneseo and was awarded Second Team All-SUNYAC honors that same season.

Here's some news about Michael and Chatham University:

On Tuesday, Chatham Vice President of Athletics and Recreation Leonard Trevino announced the return of Michael Gershon as Head Men's Hockey Coach.

"We are excited to welcome Coach Gershon back to our program and look forward to the future of Men's Hockey at Chatham," said Trevino.

Gershon, who departed Chatham before this past season, is the program's all-time wins leader (28) and led the Cougars to their first winning season (2022-23) and first postseason appearance (2021-22).

Brockport shines the spotlight on hockey alumnus Dave Zeis

The Dallas Stars are onto the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after defeating the defending champion Las Vegas Golden Knights 2-1 in game 7 of the first round. Shout out to the Stars head athletic trainer and SUNY Brockport Class of 1992 graduate Dave Zeis, who you can read more about in this profile posted by the College:

 

Dave Zeis ’92, a lifelong hockey fan and player, came to Brockport to study physical education and play on the hockey team. But after sustaining a knee injury he attended rehab and began to gain an interest in the field of sports medicine.

More than 30 years after his graduation, Zeis is in his 17th season as Head Athletic Trainer for NHL team the Dallas Stars — and the passion he developed at Brockport is what brought him to this point.

Dave Zeis posing in front of a hockey rink Dave Zeis posing in front of a hockey rink

 

“​​Brockport was vital in preparing me for what I do now. This is where I learn sports. This is where I learn the techniques. But more importantly, it gave me an avenue to get to this level,” Zeis said. “It was just a big network that really, really panned out to help me get into the professional side of hockey.”

Zeis credits the amount of educational experience he had working with athletes and injuries to the size of SUNY Brockport compared to larger institutions.

“In a lot of these Division I schools, you don’t even work with the athletes. They have hired staff,” Zeis said. “But at a smaller university like Brockport, you’re getting a much more hands-on experience. In my opinion, it’s much more exciting.”

Zeis initially  worked in the East Coast Hockey League, followed by some time in minor league hockey with the Rochester Americans. There, he served as an assistant athletic trainer until he moved into the major league in 2007 for his first season with the Dallas Stars. That very same season he was promoted to Head Athletic Trainer — the position he holds to this day.

“You always want to work at your highest level, no matter what your job is, right? So, for us in hockey, it’s the National Hockey League,” Zeis said. “I’ve worked in the world championships with Team USA. Working with the best of the best players is something I take pride in.”

Zeis recalled the 2022 incident in which Damar Hamlin, wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills, collapsed mid-game of cardiac arrest. This major event in the world of athletic training made an often-unseen job visible as Bill’s Athletic Trainer, Denny Kellington, gained widespread praise for his quick action.

“We actually had a similar event in Dallas about nine years ago. We had a player go into cardiac arrest and it actually helped design some of our protocols in the NHL,” Zeis said. “I think I’ve had three incidents that have been life-threatening situations. A lot of the things that we do are repetitive so we can be prepared. And then when something happens, everything falls into place. That’s where your skills and your tools and your education really come in.”

Jimmy Z's closes



Today marks the end of an era in Brockport as Jimmy Z's closes. "Thank you!" to Jimmy for all the memories created over the past 21 years and for the incredible support of ice hockey and Brockport athletics.

The end of an era


Last night’s playoff loss wasn’t just the end of the season, it was the end of an era, too.


It was Brockport’s final game as a member of the SUNYAC.

It’s bittersweet, for sure.

I’ll miss it. As a fan who’s been watching the team since the 1993-1994 season, the SUNY rivalry is all I’ve ever known.

For me, that’s 30 years of SUNYAC teams that we all knew inside and out, intense rivalries that we all understood, and foes who we at once respected yet saw as maddening thorns in our side – whether it was a determined coach like Plattsburgh’s Bob Emery or a slick defenseman like the Cardinals’ Nick Rolls or a big-time goal scorer like Oswego’s Mike Lukajic or an impenetrable goalie like Mike DeLaVergne of Buffalo State.

So many great players.

So many great games.

So many great memories.

Memories are all that SUNYAC will now be to fans like me.

Memories are all that SUNYAC will be to the men who laced up and will lace up their skates for Brockport.

Think of them and things they experienced, such as: Finally ridding the Golden Eagles of the long-held Plattsburgh curse and then having a bunch of ultra-competitive games with the Cardinals, including one of the longest games in NCAA history....making the playoffs in 2008-2009, hosting that statement game against Potsdam, and then routinely making the playoffs after that…the long road trips to the North Country during which the coaches and the guys could bond.

But, for all that we will miss about SUNYAC, the future is exciting.

There’s a new conference for players and fans next season -- the United College Hockey Conference.

New rivalries will be made as Brockport and Geneseo will compete for conference glory with Chatham, Manhattanville, Nazareth, Neumann, Utica, and Wilkes.

It will be interesting to see new grudges develop, to witness new talents twice a year and in the playoffs, and to wonder what new moments will come.

I’m sad about losing a beloved tradition, but happy about gaining a different future.

Thank you, SUNYAC, for what was for this fan three decades of really awesome hockey.

Brockport's playoff run -- and time in SUNYAC -- ends

Miller commits to Brockport




 Kaleb Miller, a forward for the Boston Jr. Rangers, has committed to SUNY Brockport for the fall of 2024.

The '03 native of Traverse City, MI is in his second season with the Rangers' program, and over the course of 63 career games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Miller has tallied 49 points to his credit on 30 goals and 19 assists.

"We are very excited for Kaleb's commitment to Brockport," said Rangers head coach and general manager Rich DeCaprio. "He has worked so hard over the last 2 seasons here to become the player and person he is today. Fighting through adversity both on and off the ice, he's been able to keep his focus on his goals, both personally and as a leader of our team. His slick style, IQ, and goal-scoring touch will be welcomed at Brockport!"

Speaking of that 'goal-scoring touch', it's one area that Miller has displayed a drastic improvement in. After scoring five total goals throughout the entire 2022-23 campaign, Miller currently leads the EHL in goals scored so far this year, having found the back of the net 25 times. It makes it very safe to say that Brockport's interest continued to increase with every goal that he scored.

"The last two years with BJR have been unbelievable," said Miller. "Coach DeCaprio has helped me tremendously. He has truly helped me become the player and person I am today. His ability to get the most out of his players and teach us the college style of the game are a few of the many things that makes him such a great coach. Coach [Brian] Dickinson has been great as well. Throughout the recruiting process he has been honest and easy to talk to. It makes me very excited to be a part of Brockport, both academically and athletically, for the next 4 years."

Now, with this decision complete, Miller will turn his entire attention towards the remainder of the season in the EHL, as he hopes to lead the Rangers to back-to-back titles.
