By New York Aviators Staff, 04/18/18, 11:30AM EDT


The New York Aviators are proud to announce that 1997 Defenseman Ricky Regala (Dallas, TX) has committed to NCAA Division III Becker College of the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC).

An extremely dynamic Defenseman, Regala notched an impressive 132 points in 141 career junior games.  

“We are very proud of Ricky and the progression that he has made since coming to our program,” stated Head Coach Mike Stanaway. “With the exception of the time he spent in the NAHL, we have basically had Ricky as part of our program since he was 16 years old.  He is a very skilled player and has the ability to create offense from anywhere on the ice.  I know he will have a huge impact on the Becker College program and he adds instant offense to their team from the blue line."

"We are extremely excited that Ricky has chosen Becker College to continue his hockey career as a student athlete," added Becker College Head Coach Mike Chartrand. "Coach Stanaway and the Aviators organization have done an excellent job in preparing him to play NCAA Division III college hockey here next season.  We are looking forward to Ricky's dynamic of grit, skill and hockey IQ to contribute to our lineup.  I know I am getting a player who will play the game the right way and will be a positive addition to our locker room for the next four years."

Regala represents one of 9 NCAA commitments this year for the New York Aviators.
