hockey staff Joe Battista Associate Athletic Director, Ice Arena & Hockey Development

Longtime Penn State Athletics and University Development employee Joe Battista assumed a pivotal role with Penn State as the Associate Athletic Director for Ice Arena & Hockey Development in September 2010. Battista was instrumental in facilitating the largest gift in the University’s history, an $88 million donation for a multi-purpose ice facility and Division I men’s ice hockey team, which came through the generosity of Terry and Kim Pegula. A longtime head coach of Penn State’s men’s club hockey team and former Executive Director of the Nittany Lion Club, Battista most recently served as the Director of Major Gifts for the Smeal College of Business, a position he accepted in March 2009. During his tenure, Battista was awarded the 2009 Ridge Riley Lions’ Pride Award in the Division of Development and Alumni Relations. In his first development position, Battista served as the Executive Director of the Nittany Lion Club from 2006-09. While with the Nittany Lion Club, Battista helped grow the club to a then-record 23,000 members. Under his guidance, the annual giving to support the Intercollegiate Athletic Department also increased to record levels. Prior to his appointment with the Nittany Lion Club, Battista was the head coach of the Penn State Icers for 19 years (1987-2006), bringing six ACHA national titles to Happy Valley. His teams played in 10 straight national championship games, and he graduated 97 percent of the participating student-athletes during that time.

From 1982-85, Battista was an Assistant to the Marketing Director for the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins and was also head coach of the Pittsburgh Jr. Penguins at that time. In 1983, he was the co-founder of the Amateur Penguins Hockey organization, which to this day fields competitive teams in six age groups, and created the position of Director of Amateur Hockey for the Pittsburgh Penguins, serving as its first Director. A USA Hockey Master Level Coach, he was a USA Hockey Player Development and Coaching Certification instructor for 20 years. In 2003, he coached Team USA at the World University Games in Tarvisio, Italy. Battista has been inducted into numerous halls of fame for his athletic accomplishments and contributions to hockey, including the ACHA Hall of Fame, the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, the Penn Hills Sports Hall of Fame and the Penn State Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. A Pittsburgh native, Battista is a 1983 graduate of the Smeal College of Business with a degree in marketing. He captained the hockey team while an undergraduate and was President of the Hockey Management Association. Battista and his wife, Heidi (Penn State BS Geology ‘81, EPC MS’83), live in State College with their three children, Brianna, Jonathon and Ryan.

Battista received ACHA Division I Coach of the Year honors in 1999-2000 and 2001-02, and won more than 500 games as a head coach. In 1991, Battista was a co-founder of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA), which has since grown to a membership of close to 500 Universities and Colleges in five divisions. He is also a past president of the association. Battista also coached at Kent State University (1985-86) as a graduate assistant before moving to Culver (Ind.) Military Academy the following year (1986-87).

Penn State concluded its inaugural NCAA season in dramatic fashion with a 3-2 overtime victory against No. 16 Wisconsin.


History & Records

2013-14 pENN sTATE MEN’S HOCKEY


Hockey In Happy Valley EARLY YEARS

Although Penn State will enter its second NCAA Division I season in 2013-14, hockey played an important role in Happy Valley dating back to the late 1890s. From that time until the early 1900s, many of Penn State’s 300 students played pickup hockey games on flooded outdoor rinks. From 1906-09, students primarily from the Pittsburgh area organized a hockey team with the intent to seek official approval for an intercollegiate varsity team by the University’s Athletic Association, which oversaw all Penn State sports. On Christmas night in 1909, the first Penn State hockey team, led by captain Herb Baetz, played its first-ever intercollegiate game against Carnegie Tech at the Duquesne Gardens in Pittsburgh. Less than a week later, Penn State’s first team took to Duquesne Gardens once more, this time facing Pittsburgh and dropping a hard-fought match, 2-1. Following their second game, Baetz and the rest of the team hoped it proved to the University that hockey would be a viable sport at Penn State. On Jan. 21, however, the University officially rejected the bid. Penn State students would fight to make hockey a varsity sport for a better part of the next two decades. Unfortunately, it seemed like more often than not an attempt to find a suitable outdoor arena, including a location at Old Beaver Field in the early 1920s near where Osmond Laboratory is today, almost always led to the plan’s downfall. Nevertheless, in the winter of 1938, the path toward varsity hockey was resurrected as eight members of the Sigma Phi fraternity formed an independent hockey team. On Feb. 12, the new Penn State hockey team played an exhibition game against Lakemont, an independent amateur team, in Altoona, Pa., with Al Hook, a physical education professor, serving as team coach. Ten days later, the squad suited up for its first intercollegiate game against Pittsburgh at the Duquesne Gardens, losing 4-0. 74 2013-14 // PENN STATE MEN’S HOCKEY

The team remained at the club level for another two seasons. Prior to the start of the 1938-39 campaign, Dr. Carl P. Schott, Dean of the School of Physical Education and Athletics, approved appropriations of $100 for the team. Dr. Arthur F. Davis, who also coached the first four seasons of varsity hockey at Penn State, was named the team’s head coach. In the beginning of the season, the team was forced to practice indoors at the Armory building or outside on the pond at Whipple Dam, and played three games. The 1939-40 campaign Penny Gates (left) and John Dufford starred together on the saw Penn State join 1940-41 Penn State varsity team. the Pennsylvania Penn State played its first game on Dec. Intercollegiate League with the University 6, 1940.

Hockey In Happy Valley prowess of John Dufford and the goaltending abilities of Larry Lightbody. Dufford scored at least 28 goals during his only two varsity seasons with Penn State, while Lightbody was given the team’s Outstanding Player Award in 1941 before being elected captain for the 1941-42 season.

shortcomings, Penn State still impressed with a 2-2-0 record, twice defeating Drexel Tech before dropping contests against the Baltimore All-Stars and Washington All-Stars. Both teams proved too much for the Nittany Lions, as they were primarily comprised of former collegiate and amateur stars.

Although Penn State garnered much success during its first two seasons and varsity hockey seemed poised to stay at Happy Valley, the United States’ involvement in World War II, combined with the lack of availability of ice on campus, had a devastating effect on the viability of Penn State Hockey.

Ravaged by the war, Coach Davis and Penn State prepared for the 1943-44 season with only three members from the previous year’s squad after losing most of its members to military and civilian enrollment. Although the team only played two games against Cornell and Army, in addition to a pair of practice sessions against the Hershey Jr. Cubs and Army Air Corps, plans once again were put into place for a new rink near Beaver Field. The plan never came to fruition.

Coach Davis was steadfast in keeping hockey at the varsity level, telling the University’s student newspaper, The Penn State Collegian, “Ice Hockey will be continued, whether other collegiate competition is scheduled or not. If no other teams will accept bids, hockey will continue even if we have to resort to intrasquad contests.” With many teams dropping the sport, Penn State only played four games during the 1942-43 season, including just two collegiate contests. Despite the

With the effects of the war being felt throughout the University, the Athletic Association announced that it would suspend six sports as a war-time economy measure. Along with hockey, cross country, swimming, gymnastics, tennis and golf all were dropped for the remainder of the war. In the winter of 1946, following two

seasons of dormancy, hockey made its return for one final season. James O’Hora, a new addition to the football coaching staff, was selected to lead Penn State for the 1946-47 season. The Nittany Lions were scheduled to play seven games, but four contests were cancelled due to warm weather. In its three contests against Colgate, Army and Georgetown, Penn State was defeated in each game. Following the season, the Athletic Association dropped hockey once more, citing limited facilities.

CLUB YEARS

It took almost 30 years for hockey to make its return to Penn State. Following a petition that included more than 3,000 signatures from the local community, Penn State hockey returned at the club level for the 1971-72 season. Through the course of the next 41 years, Penn State built arguably the most successful club program in the nation. Larry Hendry served as the team’s first coach and, during the early 1970s, teams were comprised of undergraduates, graduate students and faculty members before more stringent eligibility rules were put into place. During their return to campus, the Penn State Icers called three different arenas home. From 1971-78, the team played at the original Ice Pavilion, which opened in 1955, and was located near the current location of the Lasch Football Building. Following two and a half seasons (197881) travelling to Mechanicsburg and playing on an outdoor rink, the Greenberg Ice Pavilion, which served as the home of Penn State’s NCAA team in 2012-13, opened in January 1981.

Max Gardiner had the honor of taking Penn State’s first faceoff at the NCAA Division I level.

The Icers compiled a staggering 956-29552 record during its 41 years as a club program. In total, Penn State captured seven American Collegiate Hockey Association national championships (1984, 1990, 1998, 2000-03) and appeared in the national championship game a remarkable 10 straight seasons. The Icers suffered only two losing seasons in 41 years, with both campaigns coming within their first three seasons. 75 2013-14 // Welcome to Hockey Valley


Hockey in Happy Valley Perhaps the most influential person during that era was Associate Athletic Director Joe Battista, who served as head coach for 19 years (1987-2006) and recorded a 512-120-27 mark. His teams captured six national titles and played in 10 straight title games, and he graduated 97 percent of the participating student-athletes during that time. Battista was also an instrumental figure in facilitating the largest gift in University history, an $88 million donation from Terry and Kim Pegula in September 2010, which established an NCAA Division I men’s hockey program. Two Icers – Alon Eizenman (2000) and Neal Price (2002) – were named ACHA Player of the Year, while Penn State boasted 23 ACHA First Team AllAmericans and, since 1995, 62 ACHA Academic All-Americans. In addition, 10 student-athletes continued their careers in the American Hockey League, ECHL or Europe. Eizenman was also one of three people with Penn State ties inducted into the ACHA Hall of Fame, along with builders Josh Brandwene, a former Icers defenseman and head coach of Penn State’s women’s ice hockey team, and Battista.

NCAA DIVISION I ERA

On Sept. 17, 2010, a new chapter of Penn State Hockey began with the aforementioned gift from Terry and Kim Pegula. Since that time, the Pegulas have contributed $102 million to the arena and hockey program. Following the establishment of the hockey program, the Big Ten announced the recommendation to create a hockey conference for its six member schools that now sponsored men’s hockey. Beginning in the 2013-14 season, Penn State will join Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State and Wisconsin for the conference’s first season of play. With the announcement of varsity hockey returning to Penn State, University leadership turned toward hiring its first NCAA Division I head coach, and that search came to an end with the appointment of 12-year NCAA head 76 2013-14 // PENN STATE MEN’S HOCKEY

Gadowsky quickly worked to assemble his staff, bringing his assistant coaches at Princeton – Keith Fisher and Matt Lindsay – to Happy Valley. He rounded out the staff with the selection of Bill Downey, a Penn State alumnus and former member of the club hockey team, as director of hockey operations. On Sept. 5, 2011, the bench boss then announced the team’s first four members and NCAA Division I transfers – Taylor Holstrom, Nate Jensen, Bryce Johnson, Justin Kirchhevel – and, two months later, Penn State’s first NCAA recruiting class was unveiled. In February 2012, construction began on Pegula Ice Arena, which will serve as home to the Penn State men’s hockey team beginning in the 2013-14 season. The 2012-13 season brought many highlights to Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions finished their inaugural NCAA Division I season with a 13-14-0 record and defeated several marquee opponents, including Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin.

With a new era of Penn State Hockey, the program established many firsts. Anchorage, Alaska, native Casey Bailey scored the team’s first goal at the NCAA level in the team’s first game against American International College Oct. 12, while forward and Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., native David Glen tallied the first game-winning goal. Goaltender PJ Musico had the honor of securing the program’s first win in an overtime victory against AIC Oct. 13. The 2013-14 campaign will bring continued excitement to the State College community as Penn State begins play in the Big Ten and the state-of-the-art Pegula Ice Arena. Penn State will begin its second season at home against Army Oct. 11 and plays its first Big Ten game in Madison, Wis., versus Wisconsin Dec. 6.

Penn State University

Since admitting its first students in 1859, Penn State has

awarded more than 730,000 degrees, hallmarks of an educational experience second to none in quality. In addition, Penn State alumni — including nearly 320,000 in Pennsylvania alone — have job- and social-networking opportunities that no other college or university in the Commonwealth can surpass. The University’s beginnings were humble. Chartered as a college of scientific agriculture, the institution was located in rural Centre County after James Irvin, a partner in the Centre Furnace iron works (remains of which can be seen today along East College Avenue), offered to donate 200 acres of farmland for a campus. Founding President Evan Pugh wanted Penn State to embody a new approach to higher education that blended classical studies with subjects that had practical value. He joined similar visionaries in other states in convincing Congress to pass the Morrill Land-Grant Act in 1862. The act gave individual states tracts of federal land to sell; the proceeds supported colleges that agreed to include engineering, science and the liberal arts as well as agriculture in their course of studies. In 1863, the Pennsylvania legislature designated Penn State the Commonwealth’s sole land-grant institution. The lawmakers in effect bestowed on the privately incorporated college a public character. In return for state support, the institution assumed

84 2013-14 // PENN STATE MEN’S HOCKEY

obligations of teaching, research and service that are normally associated with publicly owned land-grant universities in other states. By the 1890s Penn State was making its mark. It ranked among the nation’s 10 largest undergraduate engineering schools, a distinction it still holds. It established one of the nation’s first collegiate agricultural experiment stations, and Professor Whitman Jordan’s pioneering research on using fertilizers for soil enrichment had global impact on crop yields. President George Atherton invigorated the liberal arts, and recruited Professor of English Fred Pattee to teach the nation’s first course in American literature, heretofore considered an unworthy stepchild of English literature. Penn State in 1871 became one of the first landgrant schools in the Northeast to admit women, graduated its first international student in 1890, and its first African-American student in 1905. In the early 1900s, President Edwin E. Sparks supported a number of efforts to “carry the college to the people,” as he liked to say. Technical institutes were established in various locations statewide for engineering education, beginning with an evening school in Allentown in 1910. In 1912, Penn State helped create a system of county agents in agriculture and home economics. Today’s World Campus, with its “anywhere, anytime” learning through the Internet, builds on that outreach tradition.


Penn State University

But undergraduate education remained foremost. As enrollment surpassed 5,000 students in 1936, Penn State became Pennsylvania’s largest source of baccalaureate degrees. Also in the 1930s, a state-wide system of undergraduate centers was created for students who, in the depths of the Great Depression, could not afford to leave their hometowns to get a college education. The centers offered the first year of baccalaureate studies and were the predecessors of today’s system of 19 primarily undergraduate campuses located throughout the Commonwealth. Following World War II, Penn State underwent unprecedented expansion, first to meet the needs of returning military veterans and later to accommodate the Baby Boom generation. Total enrollment at all Penn State campuses climbed to 40,000 by 1970. The University also emerged on the national scene as a research powerhouse. Research first garnered international attention in fields as diverse as dairy science, acoustics, psychology, and diesel engineering. The expansion of research activities went hand in hand with a steady increase in the number of graduate students. The University awarded its first graduate degree — a master’s degree in scientific agriculture — in 1862, and the Graduate School was established in 1922. But overall graduate enrollment remained modest until the 1950s, then swelled

steadily. By 2013, Penn State had awarded nearly 30,000 master’s, doctoral, and other advanced degrees. Undergraduates, too, benefited from a greater emphasis on research, as they had opportunities to work alongside worldrenowned faculty in laboratories and in the field, thus enriching their educational experience in ways typically unavailable to undergraduates at smaller institutions. Annual research expenditures now exceed $800 million, including about $500 million in federal research funds that Penn State brings to Pennsylvania, and $110 million in support from business in industry. The University’s research enterprise generates nearly $9 billion in total economic impact across the Commonwealth each year. Penn State currently enrolls approximately 96,000 students on 25 campuses: the research and administrative hub at University Park; 19 primarily undergraduate campuses; Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, including the College of Medicine; the Pennsylvania College of Technology; the Penn State Dickinson School of Law, Carlisle campus; the Penn State Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies; and the Penn State World Campus.

In 2003, as chairman of the Penn State Athletic Campaign Committee, he led a five-year effort to raise $130 million for the athletic department, far surpassing the campaign’s $100 million goal. During the same period, as a member of the Executive Committee of the University’s Leadership Gifts Committee, he helped achieve the University’s goal to raise $745 million. He also has been a member of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center Capital Campaign Committee.

Joyner was named a first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American in 1971 and is one of a select group of individuals who have been inducted into the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame, which honors “those with the highest standards in college academics, athletics and in life beyond athletics.” Joyner also received an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship as a Penn State student-athlete and was selected for the prestigious NCAA Silver Anniversary Award in 1997.

A member of the Penn State Board of Trustees from 2000 until the date of his appointment with Intercollegiate Athletics, Joyner was honored in 1992 as a Distinguished Alumnus of Penn State. He currently is a member of the board of directors of The Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

Joyner was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Pennsylvania Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1993.
