SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - In his senior season Matt Eccles has the Syracuse Cougars primed to make a run towards a Section Championship. The Cougars have won 15 straight games and are 16 and 1 this season.
“I love hockey. My career is coming to a close and I want to win a championship. We try and take it one game at a time. One practice at a time, one day at a time," said Matt Eccles.
Eccles began his playing career at the age of three on an outdoor rink that his dad built.
“It was special because I used to play with all my brothers on the back rink. We would just go out there and have a good time. I always used to dangle my brothers and they would get embarrassed,” said Matt Eccles.
This season Eccles has scored 17 goals, adding 19 assists.
