HAMILTON ON PENN STATE
“I chose Penn State because it is an up and coming program that has some of the best facilities in the nation and also some of the most passionate fans in college hockey.”
GADOWSKY ON HAMILTON
"Trevor is very skilled and and sees the ice extremely well but is also a 'gamer'. Not often is the term 'warrior' used to describe skilled defensemen but it is always brought up in describing Trevor. He will fit in perfectly."
