The Laker men’s ice hockey team, under head coach Ed Gosek ’83 M’01, became back-to-back SUNYAC champions in the 2013-14 season. Oswego finished 22-7-2 overall and 10-5-1 in conference play while capturing its 10th SUNYAC championship after defeating No.1 Geneseo on the road. By winning the conference title, Oswego earned the automatic qualifier to the NCAA Championship. The Lakers defeated Bowdoin College 4-3 at home in the first round then knocked off Babson College 4-3 in the quarterfinal to earn its fifth-straight Frozen Four appearance. Oswego bowed out in the semifinals to University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
Despite entering the season having to replace 14 seniors from the 2012-13 national runner-up squad, Oswego’s 19 freshmen, five transfers and core of returners wrapped up the season ranking No. 3 in the country in both the D3hockey.com and USCHO final polls.
Matt Galati ’17 received SUNYAC Rookie of the Year honors and was named Second Team All-Conference. He led the team with 24 goals and 36 points. Bobby Gertsakis ’15 was named Second Team All-Conference and led the team with 26 assists, ranking second in SUNYAC.
