He has incredible hockey sense & puck management abilities. He plays a heavy on the puck attacking brand of hockey that's going to translate great to the New England College program. ”  Said IHC Head Coach Tim Kyrkostas

“Deciding to play for Coach Tim and the Islanders has easily been my best Non- hockey and hockey decision I've made. With the year coming to an end, it's easily noticeable that coach has made the grind of going to the rink everyday so enjoyable and personally helped me love hockey so much more. He is exceptional at pushing players beyond their limits, making them better hockey players but more importantly making us better away from the ice.”  - Eric Lester
