WEST SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts—The Springfield Pics are proud to announce that goalkeeper Frank Cundiff has committed to Curry College for the fall. A mid-season acquisition, Cundiff made nine starts for Springfield, going 5-4-0 with a .901 SV% and 3.21 GAA.
"The Springfield Pics organization gave me the opportunity to play a high quality level of hockey while finding the right college to continue my hockey career. The Pics welcomed me halfway through the season with open arms and made me feel at home all the way from the players to the coaching staff,” Cundiff said, adding that “the coaching staff at the Pics is top notch and always pushed us beyond our limits, thus making it possible to play at the next level. I would like to thank everyone at the Pics and my parents for making all of this possible.”
Curry, which competes in the Commonwealth Coast Conference, finished last season 14-10-2. Cundiff will join Lionel Mauron, another Pics alumnus, on the Colonels roster.
“We would like to congratulate Frank and his family on this accomplishment. He joined us at the midpoint this season and gave us an opportunity to win each night he started,” said Pics head coach and general manager Patrick Tabb. “He won 5 straight games after joining us at a key point in time for our hockey club. I feel he will compete for the starting job as a freshman; he is a great teammate, loves to be at the rink and on the ice, even lending a helping hand coaching our 07' team,” Tabb noted.
Congrats to former Pics coach Pat Tabb and the AIC Yellow Jackets on their upset win tonight!
