In addition to being named one of the three co-captains of this year's Icers team (along with John Conte and Steve Thurston), senior forward Matt Kirstein is a member of Penn State's 2009 Homecoming Court.
Matt had a breakout season in his junior year, finishing 3rd in scoring (behind Tim O'Brien and Lucas DeLorenzo), scoring 17 goals and adding 25 assists in 41 games. In addition, Matt was +30 in 2008-09, meaning he was on the ice for 30 more goals scored by the Icers than by their opponents.
Not only is he a force on the ice, but he did a pretty good job as my first half analyst during the Blue/White game. He's already got a job on Wall St. lined up after graduation, but who knows -- could hockey analyst be in the future?
