Three College at Brockport student-athletes have been named to one of the three 2019 Men's Ice Hockey All-State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) teams, as announced Thursday by the conference office. Sophomore defenseman Ryan Romeo was tabbed to the All-SUNYAC Second Team, while Junior forwards Connor Hutchins and Doc Gentzler were selected to the All-SUNYAC Third Team.
Romeo back-boned the Brockport blue line this season, finishing the '18-'19 campaign second on the team in points with 17 (4g-13a). His 17 points on the year placed him fourth amongst all SUNYAC defenseman. The sophomore defenseman from Fairport, N.Y. was an impact player for the Green and Gold all year, his best game coming in a 3-0 win over Neumann College where he had a goal and an assist.
Hutchins, a center on the Golden Eagles top line helped the Green and Gold to their best season in 30 years. The junior from North Richland Hills Texas lead the Golden Eagles in points this season with 26 (8g-18a). Hutchins top game this year came in a 7-3 win over Lebanon Valley on Jan. 12, as he recorded two goals and added two assists.
Gentzler rounded out the Brockport offense with his gritty style of play that made him a nightmare for the opposition's defense. Gentzler lead the forecheck for the Green and Gold and added a flash of skill while doing it. The junior forward had a breakout season for the Golden Eagles touching the double digits for the first time in his career with 14 (9g-5a). Gentzler lead the team in goals this season with nine.
