Shane O Neill is in his first varsity season with the Hawks. The sophomore defenseman is looking forward to being on the ice Tuesday night.

“There’s a lot of excitement going into it,” he said, “knowing that we’re going to have good competition with Haverford and obviously a lot of excitement knowing we’re playing for a cause, a cause that will help a lot of people. It feels good.”

O’ Neill says he and his teammates embrace giving back to their community by being part of this game.

“It helps a lot,” he said. “I know a lot of people personally who are struggling with cancer, and form of cancer. (The Pink The Rink Game) means a lot, not only to the people who have cancer, but the people who are praying for them. [It feels good] to be able to represent them and help them out.”
