"I chose Penn State for the tremendous athletic, as well as academic opportunity, it will provide me. The facilities and coaches are some of the best the country has to offer."
GADOWSKY ON MYLLARI
"Kris Myllari is an exceptionally smart hockey player. He is solid defensively, he sees the ice well and distributes the puck both efficiently and effectively, and his offensive game continues to evolve. His defensive recognition is extremely high and his ability to transition pucks quickly will fit great into our program."
