Penn State Men’s Hockey Forward Ben Schoen Out For Season

Penn State men’s hockey forward Ben Schoen will miss the remainder of the 2022-23 season, the team confirmed Tuesday.

Schoen injured his knee during the second period in Penn State’s 7-3 game one loss to Michigan last Friday after he was boarded by Wolverines’ defenseman Jay Keranen. Keranen was handed a five-minute major for the play, and Schoen didn’t return to the game.

According to the broadcast the following night, Schoen had knee surgery that day.

Schoen’s season-ending injury is a significant loss that couldn’t have come at a worse time. The sophomore from Maumee, Ohio had three goals, 12 assists, and 15 points in 24 appearances this season. Meanwhile, Penn State is 1-4-1 in its last six games, which complicates things even more.

Penn State’s next series is at No. 7 Ohio State on Friday and Saturday, with puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., respectively.
