March 15, 2016
The New Jersey Titans, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that forward Andrew Durham has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Army, who are members of the Atlantic Hockey Association.
Durham, 20, is in his first and final season playing the NAHL. The native of Richardson, Texas, has played in 53 regular season games with the Titans so far this season, recording 29 points (11 goals, 18 assists).
Durham (6’3/195) was selected to and played in the 2016 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for the East Division team. He shined at the event in front of the hundreds of scouts, recording a goal in each of the games and posting a +2 rating.
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Durham played for the Dallas Stars 16U and 18U teams in the Tier I Elite League. He made his NAHL debut as an affiliate player for the Odessa Jackalopes during the 2013-14 season. Last season was spent playing junior hockey in Canada.
“Andrew came to Main Camp this past year and earned a spot on this team and now this commitment brings his great hockey story full circle,” said Titans head coach Rich McKenna. “Andrew is a quality individual with the highest character and players like him don't come around often. We look forward to watching his hockey career develop and seeing him serve our great country.”
Durham is the sixth player from this year’s Titan team to make an NCAA Division I commitment.
