Another member of Penn State’s impressive senior class is heading to the pros. Goaltender Peyton Jones signed a two-year deal with the Colorado Eagles, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche.

The four-year starter burst onto the scene as a freshman, leading the Nittany Lions to their first Big Ten Tournament championship, earning Most Outstanding Player honors in the process.

After shaky sophomore and junior seasons, Jones was at his best as a senior, tying his career-best 2.60 goals-against average and setting a career-best .919 save percentage.

Jones holds virtually every major goaltending record for the Nittany Lions, including games played (131) and wins (75).
