— Jeff Taylor, a Clifton Park native and 2012 Albany Academy graduate, headlines the list of eight recruits who will be joining the two-time defending ECAC Hockey tournament-champion Dutchmen, Union coach Rick Bennett announced this morning.

The 6-foot, 180-pound Taylor is one of four defensemen coming in. The others are Noah Henry from the British Columbia Junior Hockey League’s Powell River Kings, Matt Krug from the U.S. Hockey League’s Indiana Ice and Griffyn Martin of Avon Old Farms.

There are three forwards — Alex Gonye from Deerfield Academy, Eli Lichtenwald of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Nipawin Hawks and Mike Vecchione from the USHL’s Tri-City Storm.

The other recruit is goalie Alex Sakellaropoulos from the USHL’s Chicago Steel.
