Marc Johnstone (Class of 2015) is playing for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.  The Marlies are the AHL affiliate of the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs.  Marc was a four-year varsity player and captain for the Falcons. He amassed over 100 points playing both forward and defense.  Following his Falcon career, he led the Chicago Steel (USHL) to their first ever Clark Cup Championship.  His success carried forward to a four-year career at NCAA D1 Sacred Heart (American Hockey Conference) and then onto the professional ranks with the Newfoundland Growlers (ECHL affiliate of the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs).

Kyle Jeffers (Class of 2017), has completed his first season at American International College (Atlantic Hockey Conference NCAA Division I) . The team qualified for the NCAA Regional Tournament by capturing the Atlantic Conference championship. As the 4th seed in the Fargo Regional they faced 1st seed North Dakota. The game was won by North Dakota but this was a great accomplishment for the program especially given this season's challenges. Here is what Head Coach had to say about Kyle upon his initial arrival to AIC:
"Coaches Corner: "Kyle produced record setting numbers in junior hockey and more importantly is a great human being that will be an outstanding addition to our culture," Schneider said." We look forward to watching Kyle's career blossom at AIC.
Kyle Jeffers (Class of 2017) scored his first collegiate goal (American International College) on December 15 2020 vs Army. The Yellow Jackets won 4-1 in an Atlantic Conference (NCAA Division I) hockey game played on December 15 2020 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield Massachusetts. This is Kyle's first season with AIC after completing two seasons with the New Jersey Titans.
Welcome Sean Rappleyea (Class of 2013) to the Coaching Staff beginning with the 2020-21 season! We are delighted to have Sean Rappleyea join our coaching staff. A four-year Varsity Falcon, Sean was the Defenseman of the Year for the Ottawa Junior Senators (CCJHL) and then competed for the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers (WCHA NCAA Division I).
