DOTD: Andrew Sturtz Earns No. 8 Spot On NCAA’s Top Ten Plays Of The Year

The NCAA men’s #CawlidgeHawkey top ten plays of the year were released Tuesday, and a familiar face was among the ranks: Hockey Valley’s own freshman forward Andrew Sturtz. The Nittany Lion came in at No. 8 on a list featuring remarkable game-winning goals, nearly impossible saves, and nifty passing skills from the 2015-16 season.

Sturtz’s diving score was a result of both a nice drag and fancy stick work in a play from back in October during Penn State’s meeting with AIC at home. He fooled the Yellow Jacket’s net-minder and landed the puck in the back of the cage for his first collegiate goal.

The high-caliber play came in just after a phenomenal backhander by Yale’s Joe Snively and National Champion North Dakota’s Drake Caggiula’s small-pocket snipe from the slot.

Sturtz’s No. 8 spot is even more impressive considering almost every other player that beat him went on to play in the NCAA’s Frozen Four tournament, a bid that the Nittany Lions just missed out on in an end-of-the-season battle with the Michigan Wolverines.

Personally, we think Sturtz deserved a little more credit and a higher rank, but take a look for yourself and decide.
