Goaltender Liam Souliere Commits To Penn State Hockey

Penn State men’s hockey landed a verbal commitment from goaltender Liam Souliere on Wednesday morning.

Souliere currently plays for the Brockville Braves in the Central Canada Hockey League. He’ll join the Nittany Lions next season, adding much-needed depth between the pipes going forward.

The netminder’s had a stellar start to the 2018-19 season with Brockville. He has a 1.40 goals-against average, .951 save percentage this season, and a perfect 12-0-0 record in 12 starts this season. The Braves currently sit at the top of the CCHL standings with an overall record of 14-1-0.

Guy Gadowsky’s newest recruit fills a big need for the Nittany Lions, as senior goaltender Chris Funkey won’t be on the team next year. Peyton Jones will likely keep the starting job for his final season of NCAA eligiblity in 2019-20, but Souliere could be the Nittany Lions’ goalie of the future.

The Brampton, Ontario native plays for the same junior organization that Liam Folkes played for before beginning his Penn State career. Folkes scored 118 points in 109 CCHL games with Brockville before becoming one of the Nittany Lions’ most important forwards.
