Lions Add Some Fire Power

After some recent defensive pickups, the Nittany Lions go on the offensive and add some scoring talent to their arsenal with forward Jonathan Milley.

Jonathan Milley, who helped lead his team, the Pembroke Lumber Kings, to Canada's Junior A National Championship last season, posted 29 goals and 29 assists in 42 regular season games.

From there the speedy 20-year, 6-foot-4, 215-pound forward added 24 points in 14 playoff games en route to the Kings Championship. Milley was honored as the Fred Page Cup Eastern Canadian Championships MVP and an RBC Cup All-Star Forward.

Milley has been a force on the ice for Pembroke, leading the Lumber Kings to their first national championship by scoring the only two goals in the contest.

The Ottawa native was pursued by a variety of programs including mainstays Maine and Providence, but Penn State's campus, athletic program and commitment to building a hockey program seems to have set the Lions apart after his June visit.

Pembroke Lumber Kings General Manager Sheldon Keefe says that Milley will return to Pembroke for one more season to help defend the Kings national title and five consecutive league championships.
