February 1, 2017
The New Jersey Titans, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that defenseman Oskar Stromberg has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey and attend school at American International College following his junior career beginning in the fall of 2017.
“I picked AIC was because I got a really good impression of both the school and the hockey program when I went there on my visit. It feels like they got something exciting going on and I wanted to be a part of that journey,” said Stromberg. “I have a really good feeling about this and I am really excited to be a part of the AIC family.”
Stromberg, 20, is in his first season with New Jersey and has 12 assists in 34 games played.
“What AIC expects out of me is to every day come to the rink with a determined mindset of getting better and improve as a hockey player. They have also stated the importance of keeping my grades up, which I like since I think your hockey and academic results goes hand in hand,” Stromberg added.
AIC competes in the Atlantic Hockey Conference and is coached by Eric Lang, who is in his first season.
“Our program has done really well recruiting in the NAHL. The league has produced very good players in the AHA and one thing we know for sure they are well coached, play with details and good habits,” Lang said. “We are always very excited when we can secure a player from this league. "
The 6'7/220 lbs native of Sollentuna, Sweden, is the second Titan this season to commit to a NCAA school.
“Oskar has a bright future ahead of him in this game. He is a large part of our team this year and is continuing to improve. Coach Lang is getting an unbelievable young man. We can’t wait to follow Oskar throughout his college career,” said Head Coach Craig Doremus.
The Titans would like to congratulate Oskar and his family on this wonderful accomplishment.
