Cresson, Pa. — Excitement is high as foursomes fill up the field for the 20th Annual Mount Aloysius Celebrity Scholarship Golf Tournament.  This year’s celebrity attendee is Former Pittsburgh Penguin and two-time Stanley Cup Champion, Troy Loney.  The event will take place Friday, June 9th at the Summit Country Club in Cresson, Pa.

The Mount Aloysius Tournament begins with breakfast and registration at 9 a.m., followed by a shotgun start.  The day will include a four-person scramble (flighted by handicap) skills contests with prizes including a new car, golf vacation and golf gear. The day will end with a steak barbecue.

Troy Loney, born in Bow Island, Alberta Canada, was a forward of the 1991 and 1992 Pittsburgh Penguin Stanley Cup champions.  Mr. Loney debuted during the 1980-1981 season with the Lethbridge Broncos, before playing for the Baltimore Skipjacks.  Mr. Loney bounced between the Skipjacks, Penguins, and the Muskegon Lumberjacks before helping the Pens bring the Stanley Cup home in two consecutive seasons.  He was claimed by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim at the Expansion Draft in June 1993, and was named the team’s first captain.

A rugged left-winger, Troy Loney was a battler in the corners and the front of the net.  He added a physical component to his team and chipped in with a fair numbers of goals during his twelve years in the league.  Loney retired following the lockout-shortened 1995 season, splitting his final year between the Rangers and Islanders.  In 624 NHL games, Loney recorded 87 goals, 110 assists, 197 points, and 1091 penalty minutes.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit Mount Aloysius College students by providing scholarships.  For more information about the event call the Mount Aloysius College Office of Institutional Advancement at 814-886-6396 or email AdvancementOffice@mtaloy.edu.
