The Detroit Fighting Irish announced today that Forward Jay Kostecke (2002 Milford MI) will be returning to the Irish Line up for the 2020-2021 season. The speedy forward was part of Detroit's top scoring line and rotated between the center and wing positions.. Kostecke gained a reputation last season as dangerous player any time he was on the ice,utilizing his speed and puck handling abilities on the offensive side attacking the opposing net and on the defensive side with tenacious back checking that caused any player carrying the puck reason to look over their shoulders
"Jay is a key player to our team on the ice and off the ice not one person can watch him play the game and ever accuse him of not giving everything in the tank. Many times last season his play carried our team and pushed them all to overachieve and this was his first year in the Junior environment This year we can believe that Jay will take his play to higher levels and as well take on a bigger leadership role in the locker room" stated Coach David Taylor
"I am excited and ready to get back to work with the guys and really looking forward to getting back on the ice , I am excited that as soon as the arenas open some of the veterans are planning to get together for some informal workouts and our entire team can get onto our summer training regiments"
