San Carlos native, California youth hockey grad Cosentino chosen Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Month
Air Force freshman forward Clayton Cosentino has been named the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Month.
Cosentino had a big month for the Falcons with six points on three goals and three assists during the month.
The San Carlos native opened the month in the midst of a six-game point streak that began in January and found himself on the score sheet in the month’s first four games and six of eight contests overall in February. He scored goals in back-to-back games against Bentley and RIT on Feb. 19 and 25 and continued to be a force in the faceoff circle, winning 76 draws during the month.
He leads Atlantic Hockey in defensive zone faceoff percentage, winning 62.3 percent of those draws.
This is his second Atlantic Hockey monthly honor of the season and second in a row.
During his youth career, Cosentino skated for the Santa Clara Blackhawks, Black Stars and Golden State Elite Eagles/California Cougars.
