Penn State hockey: Milley leaving Nittany Lions

After battling injuries throughout most of his collegiate career, and playing in only a handful of games this season, junior forward Jonathan Milley has decided to leave the Penn State men’s hockey program.

The native of Gatineau, Quebec, Canada, will continue his education at the school, studying world languages education.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound forward played in just four games this season, last seeing the ice Nov. 29 in a 3-1 loss to Cornell at Madison Square Garden. He has played in just 33 games for his career, totaling six goals and seven assists.

“I am very honored to have gotten this far in hockey,” Milley said in a statement. “Injuries have prevented me from continuing to play, but at this point and time my health and degree are what is most important. I am so grateful to be considered part of an awesome team and to be able to get an education beyond my expectations.”

The Nittany Lions host Michigan on Friday and Saturday in their final games this season at Pegula Ice Arena.
