Skidmore hockey player featured in New York Times

Dave Dupuis may be the person in Saratoga Springs most prepared for the onset of snow this winter.
For one thing, Dupuis is a Skidmore hockey player, so he's good on ice. Secondly, his hometown of Kuujjuaq, an Inuit town in Quebec, is near the arctic circle.
Dupuis was recently featured in this New York Times article that details his unlikely journey from a small town up north to a Division III hockey player.
"For me, life in Kuujjuaq was pretty normal, but when I tell people how it was, they’re usually pretty surprised," Dupuis said in the story.
You can watch Dupuis and the rest of the Thoroughbreds in action Saturday when they face Nazareth College at home. The puck drops at 2 p.m.
