NORWALK, CT -- Michael Cosentino, a goaltender for the Connecticut Oilers, has committed to King's College for the Fall of 2017. Cosentino joined the Oilers mid-season, after a couple years with the Philadelphia Revolution. The '96 netminder's hybrid style of play emits confidence by trusting his timing and reactionary decision making to keep the puck out of the net.
“Michael has a very professional and focused work ethic that he brings to the rink on a daily basis," said Oilers head coach Eric Lind. "We are excited for him with his King’s College commitment, to help build their program for the future.”
The Monarchs of King's College will be launching their program in a newly formed conference this upcoming Fall. The structure of the United Collegiate Hockey Conference (UCHC) includes ten men's and women's teams from Chatham University (PA), Elmira College (NY), Hobart and William Smith Colleges (NY), King's College (PA), Lebanon Valley College (PA), Manhattanville College (NY), Neumann University (PA), Stevenson University (MD), and Utica College (NY). The conference also includes Nazareth College's (NY) men's team and will welcome Wilkes University (PA) men's and women's teams in 2018-19.
