Young, Geary Earn Potsdam Hockey Awards
POTSDAM, N.Y.-SUNY Potsdam senior assistant captain Tyler Young (Massena, N.Y./Kanata Lasers) and sophomore Justin Geary (Clifton Park, N.Y./Wilkes University) have been honored by the SUNY Potsdam men's hockey team for the 2019-20 season. Young is the program's Most Valuable Player and Geary claims the Coaches Award. Young played in all 27 games this season
and was the team's third leading scorer, registering five goals and 13 assists for 18 points. Three of his goals came on the power play. The forward finished his career with 63 points on 22 goals and 41 assists in 94 games. After transferring from Wilkes, Geary saw limited action. However, the blueliner bolstered a defense that contributed to a 3.88 goals-against-average, the eighth best mark in the program's 44 seasons. The Bears defeated Buffalo State 3-1 on the road on Feb. 26, for the program's first playoff win and SUNYAC Semifinal appearance in 12 years. Potsdam opens 2020-21 at home against Southern New Hampshire on Oct. 30.
