For the first time in his Union career, Pfeffer was a regular contributor in 2015, scoring two goals and adding one assist in 988 minutes of play.

He appeared in 21 games and started 11, but his minutes waned in the second half of the season. The 20-year old Dresher native appeared in just one game from August through the end of the year.
