Chris Pollini's NCAA career came to an end last Wednesday in the double overtime loss to Plattsburgh.
The defenseman was beloved by teammates and coaches for bringing levity to the ice and locker room. In Wednesday's postgame interview with WBSU you could hear Coach Dickinson light up when he spoke of how much he'll miss Chris's humor.
That humor helped loosen the young Golden Eagles squad the past two years and eliminate some of the nerves and stiffness that comes with the attainment of winning hockey.
Over his 4 seasons he played in 71 games and had 20 assists. He had no goals to his credit, but that's because Chris was a blueliner's blueliner. He played old school, hard-charging d without the flash, taking on the big forwards that fill the rosters of Oswego and Geneseo.
His biggest game came earlier this year when he dished out 3 assists (including a helper on the game winner with 21 seconds left) to help Brockport secure a 5-4 comeback win over Neumann.
I wish Chris the best in his post-Brockport endeavors.
