Scotty Osani Commits to Johnson and Wales University
Exeter, NH — Skilled forward Scotty Osani has committed to playing his hockey at Johnson and Wales University, for the fall of 2020. The New York native played his only junior season with the Spartans, and has reached his goal of playing NCAA hockey.
“I couldn’t be happier for Scotty,” said Head Coach Brett Tryder. “He worked very hard in the off season after a year off of the ice to put himself in the position that he is in now. Scotty has a great feel for the game and sees things that others just don’t see. He is a true student of the game.”
Osani said of his time with the Spartans,”I would like to personally thank the Seacoast Spartans organization for giving me the opportunity to play for them. Due to personal circumstances, I decided to step away from the game for more than a year. Luckily in August Coach Tryder called me and got me back into the sport that I love.It was an unbelievable experience that I will never forget. We built a family and I can’t thank Coach Tryder and Coach Mallett enough for making my only year of junior hockey so memorable and for making my dream of playing college hockey, a reality. I am very excited to start my career at Johnson and Wales family and Coach Graham, this fall.”
Tryder continued, “It is always nice to help a guy rediscover his love for hockey. It can absolutely be a grind sometimes. There is nothing more satisfying than to see a guy learn to have fun while playing this great game. I believe that Scotty’s high skill level and his passion for the game will ensure a successful career at Johnson and Wales. I look forward to seeing him play, in college.
