Albee Daley led his team to a conference championship and the Frozen Four in 2016.

In his first year as a Beacon, Albee Daley’s goal in the Eastern College Athletic Conference East playoffs shifted the momentum of the game. His junior year, he led his team to a conference championship and the Frozen Four.

Daley was named to the New England Hockey Conference All-Tournament Team along with senior Andrew Crawford of Medford and sophomore Colin Larkin of Waterford, Michigan, who scored the overtime goal and was named the MVP of the tournament.

"Being able to represent the decades of Beacons who have and continue to support our university and program makes this really special for us all," Daley said.


In the off-season, Daley, an exercise and health sciences major from Averill Park, New York, works as a lifeguard at the Clark Athletic Center’s swimming pool. His sophomore year, he started a club with his teammate, Jeremy Finger, that’s aiding students who are interested in pursuing graduate school to become physical therapists.

Daley is passionate about physical therapy, and he’s been soaking up all the information he can from the team’s trainers and his professors before he graduates.

“I came into the exercise and health sciences program not really knowing what to expect, and once I got into it and met some of my professors who just had this tremendous knowledge that they could pass on to their students, it was a really big deal for me. A lot of the professors I have now will be people I’ll be in touch with for the rest of my life,” Daley said.
