The 1999 netminder is going to be heavily relied by the Avs down the stretch and into the playoffs. "Pickett was a great early addition to our team he has come in and earned everything he has received this season. I think he is going to be great at the college level he moves very well in the crease and is very calm, he gives you a chance to win every night. I think he is a great addition to the Rams hockey program and a great addition to Suffolk Universities strong academic community.
