Penn State men’s hockey: Musico signs professional contract to play with ECHL’s Greenville

Former Penn State goalie PJ Musico signed with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits of the ECHL on Monday, the team announced Monday.

Musico was invited to try out in September and started training camp in October. Last Saturday, he made nine saves in the team’s 5-0 win over the South Carolina Stingrays.

Musico played in 13 games last season for Penn State, going 6-5-1 with a 3.05 goals-against average and .909 save percentage.

Greenville coach Brian Gratz is a 2004 Penn State graduate.

The Swamp Rabbits, the ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers, open their season Saturday at Orlando.
