  • 2021-22 Penn State Nittany Lions

    Going strictly by what's on collegecommitments.com (not always complete), Penn State only has four incoming freshmen next season:

    Audrey Shirer, Forward, Dallas Stars U19
    Mya Vaslet, Forward, Nepean Junior Wildcats
    --------------------------------------------------
    Karley Garcia, Defense, Naha White
    Erika Shirer, Defense, Dallas Stars U19

    Since the only active player loss from this season's team will be Jessica Adolfsson on defense, Penn State looks to be in good shape for next year. Natalie Heising will be back for a bonus run, too. 99% same team, with four new additions.

    As always, the incoming freshmen are unknowns, so any info on them would be greatly appreciated.

          Grabbing some stuff from the 2020-21 thread:

          I think that's going to be the story for 2021-22 - seeing if Penn State continues to do well out of conference. What a shame that this team couldn't do that this year (true for every other D-1 team, too, I know). They can't look past CHA opponents, though. Consistency is going to be key. They had this great season, got people looking, and now they're going to be judged on where they go from here. There's nothing in their way except themselves.

          1. They got to play!
          2. They set season records.
          3. Huge culture change.
          Pretty cool that they got their full CHA schedule played - that sure wasn't expected at the start of the season.

          4. Hats off to Kampersal for cutting out the cancer.
          I understand the sentiment, but I would've loved to see this team with Shea Nelson and Katie Rankin in the lineup. Rankin, obviously, for her much-needed faceoff skills, and Nelson for her size and strength in front of the net.

          5. Best Freshman class in college hockey.
          Without a doubt.

          9. The Frozen 4 is at Pegula.
          10. Fans will be in the stands.
          I hope fans will be in the stands next season! I wonder if tournament selection would've been swayed this season if it had been Penn State hosting the tournament, as close as they were to being in it. It's as good a reason as anything else the committee came up with this season.

                  I was surprised that with three All-USCHO teams, they couldn't fit Kiara Zanon into anything better than an all-rookie team. She was third nationally in scoring regardless of class - that should have been good enough for one of the three teams. I guess it doesn't really matter...they got plenty of awards this season.

                    Good luck everyone at Penn State. Oggie is her Dad, I think it's like the 4th different Name he's used on here. You can tell what you're going to get with this one. Going from rink to rink asking everyone who will give his kid a glowing endorsement is not an overstatement It really happens. By the way, if by some chance she doesn't have a good game or good results it is because someone else is at fault. Final note, If you are that good do you think the team's parents and players would really let you go play somewhere else that easy? Maybe they couldn't stand the constant fishing for attention and it was easy to say BYE BYE.
