Congratulations to VJW alum and Union College sophomore Mike Vecchione,
who earned All-Tournament honors while competing at the the Frozen
Holiday Classic at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Vecchione, who came to the Warriors as a
Squirt Minor and played all of his youth hockey with the program, was
one of two Dutchmen named to the All-Tournament team after the team
defeated Sacred Heart by a score of 3-1.
Through 18 games this season,
Vecchione leads the team in scoring with 8 goals and 16 assists. In his
team's first round contest against Connecticut on December 27th,
Vecchione netted one goal and one assist in a 3-2 loss.
During his freshman campaign, the
Saugus native helped his Dutchmen team to the school's first-ever NCAA
Championship title. Here is a summary of the many achievements of the
former Warrior star from the 2013-14 season.
Great job, Mike!
