UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Kicking off a two-part series to introduce the Penn State men's hockey freshmen on the Penn State campus this summer, meet defenseman Connor Varley and goalie Matthew Skoff.

Varley and Skoff are less than three months away from helping Guy Gadowsky and the Nittany Lion men's hockey program kick off NCAA competition. A Lansdale, Pa., native, Varley comes to Penn State after appearing in 60 games with the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League in 2011-12. Varley was a member of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the BCHL in 2010-11.

Skoff, who hails from Mckees Rocks, Pa., spent the past three seasons with the Sioux City Musketeers of the United States Hockey League. In 2011-12, Skoff compiled a 25-22 record in goal. He recorded six shutouts and was sixth in the league in save percentage (.912) and goals-against average (2.72).

Varley and Skoff took some time to interview one another. Take a look.
