Penn State Hockey Commit Ryan Kirwan Drafted No. 14 Overall By USHL’s Madison Capitols

Penn State men’s hockey recruit Ryan Kirwan was selected in the first round of the USHL draft on Monday night by the Madison Capitols.

Kirwan will join the top junior hockey league in the United States, playing for the same team that rising sophomore defenseman Cole Hults played for prior to his arrival in Happy Valley.

18 players on last year’s roster played junior hockey in the USHL, including starting goaltender Peyton Jones, Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year Trevor Hamilton, and star forward Denis Smirnov.

The left-handed forward committed to Penn State in August 2017 as part of the team’s recruiting class of 2020. He’ll join the Nittany Lions after two seasons of USHL hockey in 2020-21. Standing at 6’1″, Kirwan has plenty of size for a 16-year old and can play either center or left wing.

About the Author

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard. If you, for some reason, feel compelled to see what Mikey has to say on the internet, follow him on Twitter @Mikey_Mandarino. You can also get in touch with Mikey via his big-boy email address: [email protected]
