Former Penn State Hockey Star Liam Folkes Loaned To Frederikshavn White Hawks

Former Penn State hockey center Liam Folkes has been loaned from the Edmonton Oilers organization to the Frederikshavn White Hawks of the Metal Ligaen. 

Metal Ligaen is the premier Danish ice hockey league. The Frederikshavn White Hawks are located in northern Denmark in the town of Frederikshavn.

Folkes ended his career with the Nittany Lions tied for seventh on Penn State’s all-time scoring list (103 points) and fifth on the all-time goals list (48). During his senior season in the 2019-2020, he was awarded the Penn State Hockey Culture Award.

The center was a constant on Guy Gadowsky’s squad over the course of his time in Happy Valley. Folkes even netted one of the biggest goals in program history against Wisconsin in the 2017 Big Ten title game. The double-overtime score earned Penn State its first-ever conference championship and NCAA tournament bid.

The Scarborough, Ontario native wrote in a Twitter post that he was “excited to head to Denmark.”

Folkes signed a contract with the Bakersfield Condors, the AHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers, this past March.
