Spiro Goulakos Returns to Colgate with Cancer in Remission

Colgate junior captain Spiro Goulakos' cancer is in remission.

Colgate junior captain Spiro Goulakos will be back with the Raiders this fall after leaving the team last January when he was disagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, according to a release from ECAC Hockey.

Goulakos, a defenseman, was diagnosed with the disease after a routine physical examination over the Christmas break. His cancer is believed to be in remission, and he will begin prepping for the upcoming season with his teammates at the end of August. Don Vaughn's Raiders begin play October 6 against Ferris State.
