Along with all of my former coaches I’d like to thank Coach Catron, my teammates, and the entire Little Flyers organization for all of their help and support to get to this point in my career. Since day one I was welcomed and felt right at home in Aston. I am extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity I’m being given by Coach Vincent Pietrangelo at Arcadia University, and look forward to helping build the new hockey program” said Frankenfield upon announcing his commitment Wednesday.
The Arcadia University Knights will begin their inaugural season at the NCAA Division III level in the fall of 2021.
