The Northeast Generals, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are excited to announce that forward Shawn Montgomery has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at Suffolk University.
Montgomery, 21, has had an extensive amount of experience playing for Northeast Generals head coach Joe Lovell. The 5’10/160 lbs. native of from Natick, Massachusetts, played for the Boston Advantage for three seasons prior to playing in the NAHL. The 2017-18 season was Montgomery’s first in the NAHL.
In 39 regular season games, he totaled five points and also appeared in one playoff game.
“Shawn did a great job us this past year. He has a ton of skill and has great speed. He has been a very good scorer at every place he has played and this year he was asked a lot. He was asked to play a role he hasn’t played before and he bought in and did a great job. He was a veteran presence in the locker room. The guys looked up to him and he helped keep everybody on track,” said Generals Head Coach Joe Lovell.
Shawn will attend Suffolk University in the fall. The Rams play in the Commonwealth Coast Conference and return a young team in hopes to compete for a league title.
“We are very excited about Shawn being a big part of our program,” said Suffolk Assistant Coach John Burgess.
