Quinnipiac men’s ice hockey’s DiLiberatore recalls meeting idol

Sports

The 14th-ranked Quinnipiac men’s hockey team is loaded with young talent.

Peter DiLiberatore is one of a dozen freshman on the team this year.

The Nova Scotia native was a sixth round draft pick of the Vegas Golden Knights this year.

An offensive-minded defenseman, DiLiberatore is still looking for his first college goal, but does have 3 assists.

His favorite NHL player is one the most dynamic offensive players on the planet, Sidney Crosby, who is from the same area.

DiLiberatore waited on Crosby one summer working his catering job. As he explains in the video above, he was a little starstruck.
