Stefan Miklakos began his scholastic hockey career at the public high school in his hometown of Pelham, N.Y., making the path and adjustment to prep school ― as advancing to a new level is for most players ― a bit of a challenge.
Still, all roads have led to Division 1 hockey for the second-year member of the legendary John Gardner’s Winged Beavers as Miklakos committed to spend his college career nearby at Army West Point in a couple of years. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound senior forward leads Avon with 10 goals and 21 points in 12 games this season.
Miklakos discussed his path to the Atlantic Hockey program in the latest installment of New York Hockey Journal’s Commitment Q&A.
