Aldinger nets career milestone
By Tyler Schueck, Sports Information Director
Senior defenseman Sean Aldinger recorded an assist in the Penn State Berks Blue Lions Ice Hockey teams game against Villanova University on November 20. It might have just seemed like another instance of Aldinger contributing to his squad, but the assist was much more. It was the culmination of four stellar years on the ice as Aldinger joined the prestigious 100-point club.
Over the course of his career, Aldinger has tallied 38 goals and 62 assists. In his freshman season, he was named to the All-NECHL team and helped the Blue Lions reach the ACHA National Championship Tournament with 25 points (12g, 13a). He followed that up with 10 goals and 19 assists during his sophomore campaign. In 2010-11, Aldinger finished with 11 goals and 14 assists to put him just 31 points shy of reaching the coveted milestone.
It took just 16 games into his senior season to reach the distinguished club. Aldinger currently has five goals and his 16 assists has him on pace to break his previous season-high.
The last member to accomplish the remarkable feat was Shane Aldinger, who is Sean’s older brother and currently an assistant coach for the Blue Lions. Shane Aldinger played from 2005-09 and finished his career with 145 points.
The Blue Lions have eight games remaining on their schedule for Aldinger to further etch his name in the team’s history books. The Conshohocken, PA native anticipates graduating in May 2012 with a BS in Marketing.
