New York Aviators Goaltender Commits to the University of Maine
On March 21st, one of this seasons top goaltenders, Stephen Mundinger made his college commitment to the University of Maine to play Division 1 hockey with the Black Bears. Stephen's story proves that Tier 3 is more than just hockey, it has the ability to change lives and make dreams come true.
Stephen wanted to take a moment to tell a bit of his story and to thank the Aviators. Below are his words:
"I was offered an OHL position three years ago in my NHL draft year, but I turned it down to pursue my dream of playing NCAA. Out of all the junior programs in the tri-state area the New York Aviators is by far the best program. I really enjoyed my time here with the team and the coaching staff. For any aspiring player looking to develop and play NCAA hockey I would highly recommend playing for coach Stanaway and the New York Aviators. I couldn't thank the New York Aviators enough for bringing me in and treating me like family and everything else they've done for me this year. I'd also like to thank my goalie coach Ken Boyce for my goalie training and guidance. Last but not least I'd like to thank Ed Galiani for introducing me into junior hockey. "
