Austin Smith in October of 2011 talks about his game and development in Colgate:

USCHO: How do you rate your growth as a player under coach Don Vaughan, who is two wins away from 300?

Smith: I’m mentally stronger, mentally tougher — maybe that’s because of the seasons we’ve had. [Vaughan] has been a good teacher in terms of understanding the game and helping me defensively. He’s made me more of a two-way forward. I can play left, center and right, which will help me when I turn pro at the end of the year. I’ve always been a pass-first player, and he’s gotten me to shoot, which has helped me add a new element to my game.
