Aberdeen defenseman Makowski makes NCAA DI commitment
December 20, 2018
The Aberdeen Wings, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that defenseman Tim Makowski has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for the University of Alaska-Fairbanks of the WCHA.
Makowski, 20, is in his third season playing in the NAHL for the Wings. The 6’1/174 lbs. native of Ballwin, Missouri has played in 133 games for the Wings over that time and has accumulated seven goals and 30 assists for a three-year total of 37 points.
So far during the 2018-19 season, Makowski has 12 points in 23 games played and is also serving as an assistant captain for the Wings this season.
"Tim is a special person, who is highly motivated to be good at everything he does. He is a professional in every aspect; from the way he conducts himself off the ice to the way he plays the game. There is no doubt in my mind that the University of Alaska-Fairbanks has recruited a well rounded player,” said Wings Head Coach Scott Langer.
"I would like to thank everyone who has helped me get to where I am today. I want to give a special thanks to my family, The Odde Family, Coach Langer, Coach Bohn, Coach Hill, my billet family and my teammates for always pushing me to be a better player and person. I can truly say that Aberdeen is like a second home to me and I can't thank the community enough for supporting our team. I'm very excited to attend the University of Alaska-Fairbanks next year," said Makowski.
Makowski is the 8th player on the Wings 2018-19 roster who is committed to play NCAA Division I hockey.
