Penn State Hockey’s Jonathan Milley’s Career Cut Short By Injuries

Per a release from Penn State men’s hockey Monday afternoon, junior forward Jonathan Milley’s hockey career is over due to injuries. This season was his third with the Nittany Lions, and the Quebec native totaled 13 points in 33 games in his Penn State career.

“Jonathan has spent more time and worked harder in the training room than any other athlete I have ever seen,” said head coach Guy Gadowsky in the release. “I know he gave his absolute best effort to play but his body just didn’t comply. He is a great student and will continue to help our program off the ice. I am very impressed with the support of Penn State University in regards to Jonathan’s health and commitment to get his degree.”

“I am very honored to have gotten this far in hockey,” Milley said. “Injuries have prevented me from continuing to play, but at this point and time my health and degree are what is most important. I am so grateful to be considered part of an awesome team and to be able to get an education beyond my expectations.”

Wearing No. 23, Milley’s last game as a Nittany Lion came on Nov. 29th when Penn State took on Cornell on the ice of Madison Square Garden in front of 15,000 onlookers.

Fans of the team took to Twitter to express their sentiments:
