In Western New York there isn't a former Golden Eagle hockey player who's more recognizable than Pete Gallivan ('87).

Pete began working at WGRZ Channel 2 in February 1996 as a general assignment reporter. Then, in February of 1999 Pete was named co-anchor of Channel 2 News Daybreak, promoted from a two-year stint as weekend anchor. Under his care, Daybreak became the #1 morning show in the Buffalo market. In 2009 he became left the Daybreak chair and became a reporter.

Today is Pete's last day at WGRZ. He's moving on to a role within Governor Andrew Cuomo's communication department and will be based out of Buffalo.

Good luck to Pete in his new endeavor!

Freshman goalie Jared Lockhurst (Caledon, ONT/Wellington Dukes) of The College at Brockport Men's Hockey team has been named to the All-Rookie team, voted on by the nine head coaches of the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC).

Lockhurst was the only player on the team not a member of the Geneseo or Plattsburgh squads. The rookie netminder posted a 3-8-2 record on the year, including a victory in his first career appearance in net. Lockhurst led all rookies in both goals against average and save percentage. His 3.02 goals against average was good enough for sixth in the league while his .919 save percentage was the fourth best mark in the SUNYAC.

Lockhurst stopped 42 shots in a 4-2 victory against Buffalo State on Oct. 26 to open up his career. The freshman stopped a career-high 46 shots in a 2-2 tie against then No.7 Hobart on Nov. 9. Lockhurst recorded eight games of at least 35 saves on the year.


Brockport's stellar goalie Jared Lockhurst -- who set the new school record for saves percentage this past season -- made the SUNYAC All-Rookie team, selected by the conference's head coaches.

A well-deserved honor. Here's hoping he makes more SUNYAC postseason lists in the future!


Trenton Golden Hawks defenseman Dillan Walker (photo credit - Brian Watts/OJHL Images) has confirmed his commitment to join The College at Brockport Golden Eagles beginning with the 2012-13 SUNYAC season.

After spending three seasons with his hometown Junior 'B' squad, the Brantford Golden Eagles, forward Dillan Walker headed out west, joining the Coquitlam Express of the BCHL. After 21 games out west, Walker was picked up by the OJHL leading Trenton Golden Hawks, helping to solidify an already deep defensive corp, as well as anchor the club's power play with his heavy shot from the point. Despite only playing 27 games for the Hawks, Walker finished third among rearguards on the team in scoring with 19 assists and 22 points.
