Zamboni driver Kevin Grady has passed away

Brockport Hockey has lost a dear friend who loved the Green & Gold...Zamboni driver Kevin Grady

Kevin Timothy Grady

April 7, 1975 – September 10, 2023

Kevin Grady, a lifelong resident of Brockport, NY, passed suddenly September 10.

A 1993 graduate of Brockport High School, he received his BS in Organizational Management from Roberts Wesleyan College, and was employed at KORE Wireless (formerly Integron) for over 29 years.

Kevin was a long time Ice Arena Supervisor/Zamboni Driver at SUNY Brockport.

Kevin was predeceased by his father, Timothy Grady.

He is survived by his beloved wife Danielle (Cumberledge) Grady; and their children, of whom he was endlessly proud, Forrest, Alahna, Sheridan, and Maeve Grady.

Also survived by his mother, Barbara (Snell) Grady; brother, Sean (Victoria) Grady; and sister, Heather (Jeffery) Zielinski. He will be dearly missed by in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, co-workers, and friends.

Scores of people would count Kevin as their best friend – and he made time for all of them. His easy-going nature and ability to make others feel special were endlessly endearing. He was a lifelong hockey player, youth hockey and soccer coach, home beer brewer, table tennis champion, music lover, and no matter the time of day he was always up for a game.

Calling hours will be held 4 – 7 pm, Friday, September 15 at Fowler Funeral Home, 340 West Ave, Brockport NY.

Please remember him as he was – devoted husband, magnificent father, fun-loving competitor, fierce friend, and a strong man who loved to make a long story longer as he told it with a twinkle in his eye.

Memorial donations may be made to JDRF (jdrf.org) to support Type 1 diabetes research.

2023-204 schedule


Saurbaugh commits to Brockport

Ben Saurbaugh
, a forward for the Express Hockey Club, has committed to SUNY Brockport for the fall of 2023.

The '03 native of Painted Post, NY chose the Express for what turned out to be his final season of junior hockey. After a single season in the North American Tier III Hockey League (NA3HL), and a pair of seasons in the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL), Saurbaugh elected to come to the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) in 2022-23, and that decision ultimately to this commitment.

"Ben is a very mature '03," said Express head coach Nic Cota. "After having several years under his belt playing junior hockey, last season was the cherry on top for him. Leading our team in points, and being an all-around great teammate, was fun for me to watch as his coach. Ben will continue to do great things for Brockport. Congratulations to Ben and his family. We can’t wait to watch his career develop at the NCAA level!"

At Brockport, Saurbaugh is joining a program that always recruited players from the EHL, as the 6'3 forward goes down as the 45th player in league history to choose the school in upstate New York.

Focusing in on just the commitments from this past season, and the EHL is sending seven more players off to join the Golden Eagles, as Saurbaugh will team up with Jacob Gates from the Protec Jr. Ducks, Kyle Folkerson from the New Jersey 87's, Connor Roach from the East Coast Wizards, Trevor Joule from the New England Wolves, and both David Filak and Victor Malzahn from the Boston Jr. Rangers.

"My time with the Express was second to none," said Saurbaugh. "Coach Cota and Coach Kyle's [Robertson] commitment to their players and the organization is a huge reason why I developed, not only as a player, but as a person as well. I want to thank my family for supporting me throughout juniors. Most importantly, I want to thank my teammates for a great season and the many life-long friendships made along the way."

Folkerson commits to Brockport


The New Jersey 87’s are proud to announce that Kyle Folkerson has committed to play Division III hockey for SUNY Brockport for the 2023-2024 season.

Folkerson, a 21-year-old forward from Montreal, Quebec, spent two seasons with the 87’s EHL team. In the 2021-22 campaign, he was acquired by the team mid-season and made an immediate impact by recording 11 points (5g, 6a) in 16 regular-season games. He then put up nine points (5g, 4a) in nine postseason games during the EHL team’s championship run.

This past season, Folkerson played in 44 regular-season games and finished second on the team with 36 points (12, 24a). He also represented the EHL in its college showcase series in the South Division’s game against Lebanon Valley College.

Head coach Adam Houli spoke about Folkerson’s commitment and what he meant to the club over the last two seasons.

“Kyle has been an important piece of our offense for the last two years, and to see him rewarded with a college commitment is everything,” Houli said. “He is an EHL champion with us, which means he will always be remembered as a prominent player for our club. I can’t wait to see what he will do at the college level. He is very dynamic and he will be a very strong asset to SUNY Brockport.”

SUNY Brockport is a Division III program located in Brockport, New York. Competing in the State University of New York Athletic Conference, the Golden Eagles are led by head coach Brian Dickinson.

Folkerson discussed his commitment and what it means to join the Golden Eagles. “Since I was a kid, I always dreamed of playing NCAA hockey and now I’m finally going to live that dream. The academics and hockey program at Brockport were exactly what I was looking for in a school,” Folkerson said. “The coaching staff also made a fantastic impression on me and my family during our visit and throughout the entire season. Another bonus is that I’ll be able to play with Matt and Tobin, two of my close friends from our 2022 EHL championship winning team. Really, I could not see a better fit for myself than SUNY Brockport.”

During his tenure with the 87’s, Folkerson’s most memorable moment came in the 2022 wild card game against the Connecticut Chiefs. Down 2-1 with the season on the line, the 87’s made a ferocious push throughout the third period for the tying goal. With just over two minutes left in regulation, Folkerson buried a rebound to even the score at two. Then in overtime, he scored a power-play goal to send the 87’s to the Frozen Finals, earning the ‘Folk Hero’ moniker.

This season, Folkerson continued to grow as a player and meshed well with Charles Lavoie and Aleks Gamzatov, playing together for most of the season as the team’s top line and power-play unit. Folkerson finished this year tied for fifth in the EHL with 12 power-play assists.

Folkerson reflected on his two years with the 87’s and his growth as a hockey player in New Jersey.

“I cannot thank Coach Houli, Matt Kiernan and the entire organization enough. When I first talked to Coach Houli a year and a half ago, I had been bounced around three other junior teams, and I was coming off shoulder surgery. He decided to give me a chance and put me in a position to succeed as soon as I got to New Jersey. With the confidence the coaching staff gave me, I was able to elevate my game to the next level to where it is today. I will always cherish my time as an 87 and will always be a 2022 EHL Champion,” he said.

The 87’s organization would like to congratulate Kyle and his family as he gets ready to advance his hockey career to the Division III collegiate level.

The Brockport alumnus played four seasons for the Golden Eagles, accumulating a 32-54-86 line highlighted by an 11 goal senior campaign in which he wore the "A".

Here's the press release from Lake Forest:

Lake Forest College Director of Athletics Nicki Pieart announced Monday that, following a competitive national search, Sean O'Malley will have the interim tag removed and continue to direct the Forester men's hockey team.

"For the better part of the past decade, Coach O'Malley has exhibited an incredible level of dedication to the hockey program and to the College," began Pieart. "He understands and embraces the important balance between athletics and academics and prides himself on providing a great student-athlete experience for each of his players. As the interim head coach, he has brought in two impressive recruiting classes and is in the process of adding a third. This past winter in particular, the team had several key victories and gained momentum as the season progressed. I am excited to see the continued growth of the program under his leadership "

"I am extremely honored to continue leading the men's ice hockey program and remain involved in the campus community here at Lake Forest College," commented O'Malley. "I am grateful to Vice President of Athletics and Career Advancement Jackie Slaats and Director of Athletics Nicki Pieart, along with the rest of the search committee, for putting their trust in me to continue the tradition of excellence and uphold the same high standards for our program. Moving forward, I will continue working diligently to create a positive experience for our student-athletes and provide them with opportunities to be successful both on and off the ice."

The Foresters qualified for the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Harris Cup Playoffs in both of O'Malley's seasons as interim head coach. The team improved by six wins overall and earned eight of a possible 12 points against the top two teams in the league standings. Lake Forest is now 105-94-22 overall and 78-64-14 in conference play since O'Malley joined the staff as an assistant in 2014.

Big developments in SUNYAC

Women's ice hockey will become the 21st sport in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) beginning with the 2023-24 season.

In addition, SUNY Canton will join the SUNYAC as an associate member in the sport of men's ice hockey starting in 2024-25, bringing the total number of programs to 10 in the conference.

The presidents of the SUNYAC approved both measures on Monday, May 8, following recommendations by the conference's directors of athletics.

The SUNYAC will add women's ice hockey by absorbing the Northeast Women's Ice Hockey League which has operated as a single-sport NCAA Division III conference since 2017-18. The league evolved from the former ECAC West conference.

The NEWHL will cease operations on June 30 with the SUNYAC officially taking the reins on July 1.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for the SUNYAC and for our student-athletes to operate under the SUNYAC brand and receive the recognition and services that one of the premier Division III conferences in the NCAA can provide," Tom DiCamillo, commissioner of the SUNYAC, said. DiCamillo organized the NEWHL and served as its commissioner since its inception.

The NEWHL consists of seven SUNY institutions, including five core members of the SUNYAC – Buffalo State, Cortland, Oswego, Plattsburgh and Potsdam. Canton and Morrisville will become associate members of the SUNYAC in the sport of women's ice hockey. The NEWHL conference schedule, which has been approved through 2026-27, will remain as planned as part of the SUNYAC.

Canton will join the SUNYAC in men's ice hockey beginning with the 2024-25 campaign. The conference will grow to 10 teams which will allow for a better scheduling model than the current nine-team format.

The SUNYAC institutions sponsoring men's ice hockey include eight full conference members (Brockport, Buffalo State, Cortland, Fredonia, Geneseo, Oswego, Plattsburgh, Potsdam) and one associate member (Morrisville).

Stylus report about SUNYAC Defensive Player of the Year Alex Monteleone

Tyler Sadler of the Brockport Stylus wrote this fine article about Alex Monteleone's hockey career...

Alex Monteleone: defending the ice

Oftentimes there is an association between hockey and Can- ada. Montreal native and senior defenseman Alex Monteleone found his place in hockey culture when he picked up his stick for the first time. Playing since he was two years old, Monteleone did not always have the love for it as he does now.

“Growing up in Canada, hockey is pretty big up there. I grew up playing hockey and hated it at first. I pretty much didn’t touch the ice for like a whole year, and then I eventually got back into it and haven’t stopped since,” Monteleone said.

While it may have taken some time for Monteleone to find his love for playing the game, watching hockey was a different story. Monteleone was able to model his game after players he felt he had a similar stature and build to. This is also how he determined he wanted to play defense.

“I was a bigger kid growing up and I really loved watching Sheldon Souray play,” Monteleone said. “He was a big guy with a heavy shot, and he’s who I grew up watching. So he’s someone who I modeled my game after. Guys like him who were bigger, stronger guys who really took care of their own end and took care of their teammates.”

Because the team did not find the success they had hoped for, Monteleone was surprised when he found out he was named SUNYAC Defensive Player of the Year.

“Honestly, it was a huge shock to me. I just wasn’t expecting it. As a team, we didn’t have the year we hoped for. So, I wasn’t expecting to receive that from the coaches,” Monteleone said.

Athletes put their bodies on the line every time they go out and play, and sometimes that risk can lead to an injury. The same is the case for Monteleone who suffered one more devastating than a normal bruise or fracture.

“About six years ago, I was playing at a prep school and I ended up breaking my femur. I didn’t know if I was ever going to play again,” Monteleone said. “The crazy thing about the injury was the rink I broke my femur on was at Norwich University, and that’s the college I ended up attending and playing at for four years. I played for four years on the same ice surface where I got stretchered off and the most traumatic accident in my life happened.”

After his devastating injury at Norwich, attending the same college Monteleone got seriously injured at isn’t something he anticipated.

“Honestly at first it played a role in not wanting to go there,” Monteleone said. But then it played a factor in picking my undergrad which I have from Norwich for athletic training. So
a bunch of people who helped me get back on the ice were those same athletic trainers that were with me day to day. Them helping me get through that two year long process definitely influenced my path of life.”

Being one of the more experienced players on the hockey team, Monteleone has taken a leadership role on the team and is doing his best to share his knowledge with the younger guys.

Even though hockey was never his first passion, Monteleone eventually found his way to his country’s sport and Brockport is thankful that he did.

Roach commits to Brockport

East Coast Wizards forward Connor Roach will attend SUNY-Brockport and continue his hockey career with the Golden Eagles. Roach spent the last two seasons as part of the East Coast Eastern Hockey League program.

“I would like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for all of their support throughout the years,” Roach said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to play college hockey at Brockport, and I cannot wait to get started this fall.”

Roach played a total of 86 games for the Wizards, tied for the seventh-most in program history. The Florida native tallied 81 points in that span, the third-most by any Wizard, and recorded the fourth-most assists in East Coast Wizards history with 50. This past season, Roach averaged over a point per game with 18 goals and 28 assists in just 43 contests.

“Connor has been a huge cog in our offense the past two seasons. After leading the team in scoring his first year, he finished off his junior career in the top 15 in points this year,” Wizards head coach Kory Falite said. “We are excited to see his hard work pay off with his commitment to Brockport, and we’re looking forward to seeing him succeed at the next level.”

15 years of BrockportHockey.com


A few weeks ago, this blog hit a milestone: 15 years!

The blog was started as a means to help promote this exciting sport and entertaining team to the college community, the community outside of campus, and recruits while affording families and alumni the ability to keep up on what was happening with the team, its student-athletes, and former players. The blog is also a great repository for Golden Eagles history -- there have been so many great plays and great players over the past decade and a half; you can go back and read all their stories.

15 years, and more than 1,900 blog posts later, the blog and its Facebook page are still going strong. And, that will always remain so. The program, its players and coaches, its fans, and the entire world of Brockport make this endeavor so meaningful and impactful.

Thank you for following the adventures of the Golden Eagles.
