Colangelo grabbed the career-best four points in a game against the Green Bay Gamblers on January 3. It was the inaugural game of the USHL Frosty Cup. Colangelo scored three goals and assisted one goal in that game. The Steel grabbed a 7-2 victory against the Gamblers at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas.

Brock Sheahan, the head coach of the Steel, appreciated the efforts of Colangelo for his team. Sheahan said, “As a staff we are excited for Sam to be recognized by the league.” He admired his performance in the Friday game against the Gamblers.

Sheahan said, “He has improved consistently this season and it was great to see him get rewarded for his week-to-week effort.” The most recent watch list of the NHL Central Scouting ranked him as a ‘B’-level prospect on Nov 11. He was also selected in Team USA for the World Junior A Challenge. Team USA grabbed a bronze medal in the challenge. Colangelo was also selected for the BioSteel All-American Game on December 27.
