CJ has arrived at Cortland. After much anticipation of him joining the team, he has been selected as one of the 6 rookies. While the rookie tag may stick with him throughout his junior season, he will be looked at as a veteran presence on and off the rink. Playing with the NJ Grizzlies pro and minor teams for 3 years, his assets were much needed to bulk up Cortland's forwards. He is highly regarded as one of the fastest players in PIHA, so his speed will be unquestionably feared in DIII this season. Gilcrist's vision on the rink is also another key asset of his skill set. Looking to spread the puck to his teammates makes him one of the most unselfish players on the Red Dragons this year.
Native of Monroe, NY CJ comes to Cortland State seeking a degree in Biology.
Fun Fact: CJ has an odd addiction to collecting a large amount of poland spring water bottles.
CJ plays summer hockey in the NYRHL with Leipzig in Newburgh, NY.
