When's the last time you heard news that made you feel really old? Let's update that. 14-year-old Drew Tsakounis and 16-year-old Jeffrey Bertrand just committed to Penn State hockey for the 2022 and 2020 seasons, respectively.

Not much analysis to be had here. Tsakounis is almost a point-per-game player in youth hockey in New Jersey, and Bertrand (an Alaska native!) hasn't recorded any stats in six games for the NAHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights. All major college hockey programs start recruiting super early though, and it's a good sign that Guy Gadowsky's staff is claiming territory in these far-off cycles.
