Sacred Heart announces transfers of Kenneally from Becker, Lee from Vermont

Sacred Heart announced the addition of 11 players for the 2017-18 season on Thursday, including two transfers.

Redshirt sophomore Jason Cotton will also suit up for SHU after sitting out last season due to NCAA transfer regulations. He previously skated for Northeastern, playing in eight games in 2015-16 before going to the USHL’s Youngstown Phantoms.

Goaltender Matt Kenneally transferred to SHU from Becker this past January, while defenseman Mike Lee is over from Vermont.

Lee will sit the 2017-18 season.

“Matt is a hard worker who loves to compete,” said Sacred Heart coach C.J. Marrotolo in a news release. “He has passion for the game and works at his craft.”

Lee appeared in 51 games as a defenseman over the last two seasons for the Catamounts.

“Mike is an offensively skilled defenseman who plays the game with great poise,” added Marrotolo.
