Celebrating two of the best

 

With the second half of the season here, it’s time to give a shoutout to two guys having absolutely magical seasons – Ryan Romeo and Nolan Egbert. Keep an eye on these guys this semester, appreciate every play they make. They are literally among the best in all of DIII.

It was thought that defenseman Ryan Romeo deserved serious consideration for All-American status in the season prior to the pandemic. The First Team All-SUNYAC selection had 10 goals and 16 assists for 26 points. This year, he’s a shoe-in for national honors: He has a 7-14-21 line in just 13 games. He’s on pace for a 40-point season. Let that sink in. 40 points is a great season for a forward. For a blueliner, it’s an all-world season. That dynamic playmaking ability in no way dulls his primary duties of keeping the other teams’ best players in check. His plus/minus is +15, he’s blocked 8 shots, and he has just 8 penalty minutes.

I’ve been watching DIII hockey for a really, really long time, and I’ve always thought the best defenseman I ever saw was Nick Rolls, who played for Plattsburgh from 2005-2006 to 2008-2009. He was brilliant, the flow of the game itself went through him. Romeo is that kind of special talent. He’s an impactful player who is worth the price of admission and will belong on Brockport’s Mount Rushmore of hockey.

Why is Brockport consistently ranked among the top twenty teams in DIII this season? Look no further than Nolan Egbert. His brilliance in goal allows the team to do what they want, to take chances, to adjust their style of play of the competition, to make changes on the fly because he gives them the confidence to be able to dominate and win every game. With him behind you, there’s always a chance.

Somehow, he’s quietly having a season for the ages. His save percentage is .940 and his goals-against-average is 1.72. The team’s single-season records for those categories has been held by Jake Moore, at .925 and 1.93. He’s a great goalie to watch, too – he has textbook mechanics and cunning yet he can also make the stunning stop that’s worthy of television highlight reels.

Egbert can steal a game and he’s the key to getting the team to – and beyond – the SUNYAC championship game. He’s up for the task, too, the young man has preternatural calm behind the mask.

New fans, longtime fans, all of you…savor this semester and what these guys are doing. You’ll never forget what you’re seeing.

Brockport has a beautiful campus and great academic options for me to pursue my goals.  I would like to thank my family and friends for sticking by my side throughout my whole hockey career.  I would also like to specifically thank Coach Heffernan for all his help in this process. One of the big things as a team that we have been focusing on under his leadership is sticking to our style of team hockey and individual success will follow.  This commitment is not only for me but for every other guy in our locker room that shows up every day working to win a championship and more importantly, developing to get to the next level.” – Dominic Chirico 

“We have a very deliberate model here centered around player development and exposure” said Heffernan of his program. “Dom has bought into the process and earned his commitment to a great NCAA program. I suspect that many of his teammates will be following in his footsteps soon.”

Higgins commits to Brockport

 

Josh Higgins, a forward for the New Hampshire Avalanche, has committed to SUNY Brockport for the fall of 2022.

The '01 native of Orchard, Park, NY is in his 2nd season with the Avalanche, and 1st as the team's captain. In 64 Eastern Hockey League (EHL) games to date, the all-star defenseman has tallied 23 total points to his credit.

"Josh has been a great player and a great leader for us, over the last two years," said Avalanche head coach and general manager Chris Cerrella. "He will join a handful of Avalanche alumni at Brockport. I think the SUNYAC as a league, and the school in general, fits Josh well, and I know he is going to have a very successful collegiate career both on the ice and in the classroom. Higgy will be tough to replace, but I can not wait to see what the future holds for him, he is a great young man."

As Cerella mentioned, Higgins will join five other Avalanche alumni when he arrives at Brockport, including the captain that preceded him in Hooksett. After leading the Avalanche to the 2021 EHL Championship Game, Chris Aarons set out to join the Golden Eagles back in late August/early September. Now, with Higgins' commitment, the Avalanche have sent back-to-back captains to Brockport.

"I’m excited to announce my commitment to further my academic and athletic careers at SUNY Brockport," said Higgins.

Thank you to the Avalanche organization, specifically Coach Cerrella, Coach Vinny, and Coach Mario for the time and effort they have put in over the past 2 years to help me to get to college. I can’t wait to put on the green and gold next year!"
