Penn State Hockey Had The NCAA’s First No. 1 Play Of The Season

Although Penn State hockey fell to St. Lawrence in a series-splitter, all was not lost last Friday night at Pegula. Those in attendance might remember a thrilling up-top goal from defenseman Vince Pedrie, and so does the NCAA. The powerplay shot and its setup ranked No. 1 in the NCAA’s top five plays of the week — not a bad way to start the season.

The sophomore, who was named to the Big Ten preseason watch list, got the puck off a slick no-look, between-the-legs pass from Andrew Sturtz and shuffled it in top shelf. Sturtz, whose set up pretty much made this goal happen, was just as crucial the night before in Penn State’s 4-2 win, with a game-winning shorthanded goal late in the second period. He notched a goal of his own after Pedrie’s the next day, but Penn State couldn’t make the comeback. Both sophomores are expected to develop more team leadership this season, with so many new players for the Nittany Lions.

Shoutout to Stack the Pads for getting this (and Hockey Valley’s reaction) on video:
