Johnstown defenseman Dwyer makes NCAA DI commitment
March 6, 2019
The Johnstown Tomahawks of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that defenseman and assistant captain Carter Dwyer committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Bentley University.
Dwyer, 21, of West Chester, Pennsylvania, has nine points (three goals, six assists) in 23 games played. On Tuesday, he was named the NAHL's defenseman of the month award for his play during the month of February. Dwyer (6’3/190) put up seven points (2 goals, 5 assists) and a +7 rating in eight games during the month.
"I am so proud of Carter on his commitment to Bentley University," head coach Mike Letizia said. "He has truly embodied perseverance and dedication to trusting the process. He is someone who gives us every ounce of what he has each time he steps on the ice, and has been a stable part of our back end. "
"Carter plays a tenacious style of hockey as a physical d man, but has shown he has an offensive side to his game as well. Two way d-men who play as hard as Carter are such great pieces to a team's puzzle and we are hopeful Carter will bring that to the Falcons in the fall."
Located in Waltham, Mass., the Falcons compete in the Atlantic Hockey Association.
Dwyer joins teammate Hunter Toale on the Bentley blueline next fall.
