Rochester Stars player Matt Esposito has committed to play for Division III powerhouse Oswego State for the fall of 2013.
Esposito is in his second year playing for the Stars, and is third on the team in points with 29 through 32 games this season. The Fayetteville, NY native is excited for the opportunity to play college hockey so close to home.
“The best part of playing so close to home is that my parents will get to see me play,” said Esposito. “The program is also a great fit for me.”
Stars head coach Tony Maksymiu believes Esposito’s leadership abilities will allow him to find success at the college level.
“Matt is not only a great player but has been a great leader as our captain this season,” Maksymiu said. “His teammates look to him as a leader and he’s embraced that role for us.”
Oswego State is a member of the SUNYAC conference, and has won eight SUNYAC championships. The Lakers won the DIII National Championship in 2007, and have made four of the last six DIII Frozen Fours, including three straight.
