PSU hockey returns home ranked and on a roll

UNIVERSITY PARK – Not only is Penn State riding the nation’s third longest unbeaten-streak – 4-0-4 in their last six games – the men’s ice hockey team has jumped back into the Top 20 in the latest poll, sitting at No. 18. The team has been unranked since being swept at Notre Dame the weekend of Nov. 10-11.

PSU hockey heads to Arizona State for two-game series

Penn State hockey raises banner, wins opener

Thursday night's season home opener at Pegula Ice Arena was not like any other as the Nittany Lions unveiled not only one, but two banners for Penn State's mens hockey team for the first time in the history of the program.

Penn State's offense shone as they battled American International College (0-5-1) after being on the road for the past two weeks. 

"We have to recalibrate things a little bit defensively," Head coach, Guy Gadowsky said after the game. "All-in-all, very happy to be back, happy to get a win." 

Time is right for Pens-Flyers at Beaver Stadium

If you were one of the 6,222 at Pegula Ice Arena on Sept. 19 for the NHL game between the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins and Terry Pegula’s Buffalo Sabres, you know how electric the atmosphere was.

And it was a preseason game.

Sure, Pegula was packed with mostly Penguins fans. However, there were plenty of Sabres fans as well. We also saw jerseys from around the NHL – the Flyers, Devils and Rangers were represented.

Penn State Wins Big in Wrestling and Hockey

Last weekend was all about the Nittany Lions, with huge victories for both Penn State wrestling and men's hockey on Saturday.

The day started out with the Penn State wrestling team earning its sixth national championship title in seven years. Later that night, the Penn State hockey team earned its first Big Ten championship title ever, sending them to the NCAA tournament for the first time ever.

No. 1 Ranking Just the Beginning for Nittany Lions

In the early days of Pegula Ice Arena, the Penn State men’s ice hockey team held an open midnight practice in their home rink.

The event drew a good-sized crowd, and head coach Guy Gadowsky skated toward the student section, where the fans had gathered. Gadowsky thanked everyone for coming out, and then the team went through some drills as folks snapped photos and nibbled on the first offering of hockey inside the state-of-the-art arena.

Sure, it was just a glimpse, but standing inside the building that night, I remember that I couldn't shake this feeling:

Penn State Hockey Is No. 1 for First Time Ever

For the first time in program history, the Penn State men's ice hockey team is ranked No. 1 in the nation.

Following their home sweep of Michigan State last weekend, the Nittany Lions (16-2-1) jumped from No. 4 to the top spot, earning a whopping 30 first place votes in the latest USCHO poll. Denver received the second-most first place votes with just 16.

Player to Watch: We Sit Down With Freshman Goaltender Peyton Jones

Peyton Jones’ first time in goal for the Penn State ice hockey team went pretty well by most standards — or actually, by any standard.

The tall and lanky freshman from Langhorne, Pa., became the first Nittany Lion freshman goaltender to earn a win in his first career start. After giving up an early goal, Jones settled down, stopping 28 of 30 shots overall, including all but one of the 23 shots he faced in the second and third periods.
