Geneseo alumnus congratulates Ice Knight on ascension to pro league

After watching the Geneseo Ice Knights ascension from an average SUNYAC team to a conference powerhouse over the past three years, one of my favorite players that I've grown to respect was Mitch Stephens, a forward who always had a penchant for scoring at just the right time (often shorthanded), while always playing a sound defensive game as well. Mitch graduated last year, but it was wonderful to hear that he signed a professional contract with the Reading Royals of the East Coast Hockey League earlier this month. The official release from the team can be found at their Web site, I write this letter as a congratulations to Mitch, and a thank you for all the great play during your time at Geneseo.
