Penn State’s all-time leading scorer is off to the pros. Senior Nate Sucese will head to the desert after signing a one-year, entry level deal with the Arizona Coyotes.
Sucese was as consistent as they come for the Nittany Lions. The Fairport, NY native posted at least 29 points in each of his four seasons in Hockey Valley.
That consistency helped him become the program’s all-time leading scorer this season, ending his Penn State career with 140 points in 147 games. While he prided himself on doing the little things that help teams win games, Sucese also produced some highlight reel moments in his career.
Sucese has previously attended summer development camps with the Nashville Predators and Boston Bruins. He joins his most frequent running mate Brandon Biro as the second Nittany Lion to ink a professional deal in this earlier-than-expected offseason, but will likely not be the last.
