The Golden Eagles come into the second semester with a change to the roster.

Joining the team and wearing the #91 sweater will be Nathan Pelligra, a 5'11, 185 pound 21-year-old who hails from nearby Webster. The freshman comes from Manhattanville College where he saw limited ice time.

Heavily recruited by the Golden Eagles before committing to Manhattanville, Pelligra played for the Buffalo Junior Sabres last season. He played in 52 games and had 14 goals, 26 assists and 58 penalty minutes. In the Junior Sabres playoff run he had 5 assists in 9 games.   

To make room for the forward, Coach Dickinson had to cut senior goaltender Joe Reagan. Joe was fourth on the depth chart and was unlikely to see any ice time this season.  Joe ends his career with a .886 save percentage and 4.65 goals against average over 17 games.

Joe had the distinction of having one of the finer freshman campaigns among Brockport goalies, when he carried a .900 save percentage for a good chunk of the season before finishing at .895 in 13 games played.
