With Alan Liwush graduating in May, there is a void amongst the team's defensemen.

Coach Dickinson has acted quickly to fill that void: 19-year old Matt Deluca, who spent the past season with the Syracuse Stars of the EJHL, will be coming to Brockport next semester. The 6' 190-pound blueliner played in 41 games this past season, scoring 3 goals and assisting on 11 more.

Here's what the Stars say about the pick-up...

The Syracuse Stars are proud to announce that defensemen Matt Deluca will be headed to the Brockport Golden Eagles next season. Deluca, a Skippack, PA native, will be a great addition to Coach Dickinson's and Coach Digby's Brockport squad.

Coach Montagna's comments on Matt, "From Day 1 Matt just worked at getting better. He defines what you look for in a player when it comes to work ethic, drive and character. When you combine that with his talent on the ice it gives you the type of player you want to coach. Matt will be very successful because he is a young man who gets it. He is a smart, independent thinker who is very focused on what his goals are. He has just been a pleasure to coach and get to know as a young man. A great pick up by the Golden Eagles. I am thrilled for him and believe he will have great success at the next level."

Matt wanted to thank the Stars organization and coaches for the opportunity to play in Syracuse this season. He always wanted to thank his family and friends for their love and support. The Stars wish Matt great success at Brockport.
