STERNSCHEIN ON PENN STATE
“I chose Penn State because from the coaching staff and facilities, to the academic opportunities, I knew it was where I wanted to further my education and hockey playing career.”

“Sam has good offensive instincts and finds open ice to get his great shot off. His size will be a nice addition to our lineup.”
