Penn State is perhaps best-known for being a football powerhouse, but the Nittany Lions’ hockey program, under the direction of of fourth-year coach Guy Gadowsky, is one of the fastest growing hockey programs in the country.

The Nittany Lions transitioned to Division I in 2012, and it has been an accelerated climb since. The 2014-15 season culminated with Gadowsky earning Big 10 coach of the year honors.

Stepping into Beaver Stadium sporting traditional, nameless navy blue and white jerseys, Penn State football intends to chase a championship under second-year head coach James Franklin.

West Virginia's Kevin White will be the first local player off the board, but Pitt's TJ Clemmings looks like a first-rounder as well. Penn State has several players expected to go in the second and third days of the draft.
