Hooksett, NH -The New Hampshire Junior Monarchs are pleased to announce that forwards, linemates, and roommates George Lotito and Pat Kiley will be attending Utica College in the fall of 2010.
The decisions came just weeks apart with Lotito making his decision just before the team’s holiday break, and Kiley making his when the team returned for the second half of the season. Utica will be getting two players who have really taken their games to new levels this season.
George has really blossomed into a great centerman, moving the puck well on the breakout and in the neutral zone, as well continuing to thrive in the offensive zone. He uses his strength well, and he is great in tight areas. With a very skilled stick for a big man, Lotito will undoubtedly be a happy addition to the Utica lineup next season.
Pat has become one the team’s most dominant offensive players this season, a role that he was meant to play. He has scored timely goals and made huge plays offensively this season. Kiley has helped lead the way for a Monarchs team with huge offensive potential. No doubt, it is his play away from the puck that has led to this offensive explosion. Pat has learned to move to open lanes and, as a result, he has been able to get the puck on his stick much more.
George is the son of Lori and George Lotito of Staten Island, NY. Pat is the son of Pam and Fran Kiley of Reading, MA..
