Penn State Hockey: Kerr To Miss Remainder Of Season

by on February 21, 2017 6:00 AM

Penn State defenseman Kevin Kerr will miss the remainder of the season, according to coach Guy Gadowsky.

Kerr had missed the past three games following a crash into the boards against Wisconsin. The sophomore, a highly regarded player and teammate is the best all around defenseman on the roster, a talented skater with and without the puck.

Gadowsky wouldn't elaborate on the nature of the injury beyond "lower body."

“I don’t think you ever want to lose a player like Kevin Kerr, regardless if it’s for a game or for a season,” senior forward Ricky DeRosa said. “He’s been instrumental this entire season in our D-corps.”

With the loss of Kerr, Penn State has turned to freshman Kris Myllari and his heavy shot skating next to junior Trevor Hamilton. The Nittany Lions have a third pairing of freshman James Gobetz and sophomore Derian Hamilton, who had played relatively limited time prior to Kerr's injury.

Penn State's continues to work with the top pairing of Vince Pedrie and Erik Autio.

The Nittany Lions travel to Michigan State this weekend for the first two of the final six games of the regular season.
