Picariello Commits to NCAA DIII Stevenson University

The Pittsburgh Vengeance are proud to announce that defenseman Martino Picariello has committed to play hockey this fall for the Mustangs of Stevenson University. Picariello had a unfortunate start to his Vengeance career as he suffered a knee injury in his first game in a Pittsburgh uniform. This didn't hold the 5'9" Philadelphia product back for long as he became a significant part in Pittsburgh's run to the East Final that saw the Vengeance come up one game short of a Silver Cup berth.

"Pic's first came back was game one of the East Finals. He scored two huge goals for us, including the game tying goal with under 5 seconds to play," said Coach Dorsey. "He's a mobile defenseman that plays bigger than his size and will be a great asset to the Stevenson program."
