This will be the inaugural season for the Mustang program, which will compete in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC), West division.
“We are extremely excited for Justin as he has earned this fantastic opportunity,” stated Ducks GM/Head Coach, Tom Winkler. “Justin came in this season determined to create a college hockey opportunity for himself. He was committed and up to that challenge every day. Justin is a strong power forward who creates a great deal of space when he is on the ice, he has a powerful shot, plays physical, and has a great knack for scoring timely goals. He is going to be a cornerstone for Stevenson as they build their program. Again, we are extremely proud of Justin,” added Winkler.
