Denny Kearney

Kearney picks Yale University

Hooksett, NH - New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs forward Denny Kearney has verbally committed to Yale University for the fall of 2007. Kearney, in his second season with the Jr. Monarchs, is currently the second leading scorer in the EJHL. The 6'1, 195 LW is a 1/27/88 and native of Norwich, Vermont and first suited up in a Monarchs uniform when he skated for their split season midget team while he played for Hanover High School. He along with current teammate Paul Thompson and former teammate Joey Gaudet (Dartmouth College) helped lead that team all the way to the USA National 18-Under Championships in Chicago, IL.

"It was with that midget team I realized what the potential was in those three players when they took down a powerful Mid-Fairfield team in the New England Championship series," stated GM/Head Coach Sean Tremblay. "Even back then he always reminded me of a young John Laliberte (Boston University, Trenton Titans) with his amazing puck protection skills and vision. As Denny continues to get stronger and mature he will become virtually impossible to defend. He has a strong passion to get better and understand the game at a level that most don't or cannot comprehend. He certainly will go down as one of our best players on the power play which places him with an elite group of players."

Denny decided on Yale with several other schools weighing heavily on his mind including Dartmouth College, Princeton University, and Union College. Kearney commented, "I feel Yale is a perfect fit for me both as a student and as an athlete. After visiting I just knew it was where I wanted to go and I am thankful to the Yale coaching staff for believing in me and offering me this tremendous opportunity. Yale is the type of school that in the past I only dreamt of attending, but playing the last two years with the Monarchs and Coach Tremblay has helped me to realize that dream. There is no doubt in my mind I would not be receiving this opportunity without the tireless efforts of Coach Tremblay and Coach Corkum working on my behalf. The Monarchs program has been instrumental in my development as a hockey player and as a person."

Kearney will arrive at Yale and is the third Monarchs player to head to the prestigious Ivy League school. Both of the previous players lead the Monarchs to EJHL titles and Kearney is hoping to make it three for three.
