Classroom

Limoges, a two-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree, currently has a 3.67 cumulative grade point average. He is on course to graduate this spring with a degree in supply chain management.

Limoges did not opt for pass/fail grades this semester when given the opportunity to.

Character

Voted team captain for his senior season, Limoges is a natural leader and has been someone the underclassmen look up to. Sometimes going about his business in a quiet manner, he acts when a voice needs to be heard.

Even as a smart hockey player with a strong skill sket, he makes tough plays look effortless and is never someone to back down from a battle. Extremely strong on the puck and with a tireless work ethic, Limoges is the first one on the ice and last one off. He is always willing to put in extra time to help a teammate or take shots on goalies.

Limoges is well respected by everyone at Penn State, whether it’s professors or fellow student-athletes, and he represents Penn State Hockey to the fullest.

Community

Limoges was very active in the community prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of a reading rewards program at a local elementary school, he also worked closely with LifeLink PSU. In his home community in Virginia, Limoges volunteers at Camp Fantastic, a kids summer camp for children with cancer, where he helps out with fundraising campaigns.

This past spring and summer, he volunteered to go grocery shopping for the elderly so they could avoid any risks with contracting COVID-19.

Competition

Limoges currently ranks third among active players in the nation with 112 points in his career, the most among active players in the Big Ten. His 46 career goals are also the most in the Big Ten and second nationally.

He ranks sixth on the Penn State career points and goals lists, and was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection last season. A two-time pre-season All-Big Ten first team selection, Limoges was named to the 2018-19 Big Ten All-Tournament Team after setting a Big Ten single-tournament record with goals goals, also adding three assists to finish with the second-most points.

Voted 2018-19 Penn State MVP, he set program records with 23 goals and 50 points during that season. Limoges led the nation in points that year and was named an All-CHN first team selection, as well as a Hobey Baker Award nominee.

So far in 2020-21, Limoges leads Penn State with five goals and nine points in eight games.
