Exeter New Hampshire- Danny Finegan decides on Westfield State.
Danny Finegan, the ’01, defenseman from Chicago Illinois, will be attending Westfield State, in the fall of ’22. Finegan was a top producer for the Spartans with 2 goals and 23 assists in 44 games. He played in all situations and was a leader on the Seacoast blue-line.
Coach Tryder had some comments about Finegan’s commitment. “I am excited to see Danny continue his playing career, at Westfield State. He plays a physical game, at 6′ 2″, 190 lbs, and makes good decisions with the puck. His game will transfer nicely to the MASCAC League.”
Danny played for Team Illinois AAA for two years and the Texas Brahmas for a year before deciding to head east to the New Hampshire. The EHL proved to be the right choice for Danny and led to Finegan reaching his goal of playing NCAA Hockey.
“I’m very excited to attend Westfield State and continue my academic career and pursue my dream of playing college hockey,” offered Finegan. “Seacoast has been a great place and an amazing organization to be a part of and I’m thankful to play for such great coaches. Coach Tryder has been very helpful this season and has provided me with a lot of tools to add to my game to compete at the collegiate level.”
Tryder finished, “I feel great about Danny’s fit at Westfield. I believe that he will be a top player for them right away. I can’t wait to see him play at the college level!”
