Player Spotlight: Alex Limoges

Audio/Story posted 7 days ago in CommRadio, Sports by Tom Johnston

Penn State sophomore Alex Limoges has been on fire this season. The Winchester, VA native is on arguably the most productive line with forward Liam Folks and center Evan Barratt.

In fact, the line has been so productive that Limoges and Barratt are tied atop the board overall in scoring in college hockey. Limoges as a sophomore has played and started in all 15 games thus far for Penn State and has amassed 25 points via eight goals and 17 assists.

“I tried to do as well as I could freshmen year and was a little disappointed with my productivity," Limoges said. "I didn’t have a point this year in the first game so that kind of fired me up and it's just fun to see it pay off. But I know there is a lot more that can be done. I didn’t know I was going to be top in the country right now."

Lastly, besides being on a productive line, Limoges attributes his success to him working just as hard off the ice as he does on the ice. Being a young and inexperienced guy tends to have some immature signs to it. One of those signs is the weight room, something Limoges needed to work on.

“It was just mentality. I talked with our trainer Cam he said you know I’m doing good, but I could be a lot better if I have a different mentality in the weight room,” Limoges said.

Not only has the work off the ice paid off but on the ice as well. This weekend, Limoges and Penn State welcome No. 5 Notre Dame to Pegula. Both teams have identical records, so it should be an interesting matchup.
