Northeast forward Alden makes NCAA commitment
April 26, 2019
The Northeast Generals of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Hunter Alden has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for SUNY-Plattsburgh.
The 20-year-old native of Walla Walla, Washington, joined the Generals halfway through the year and was a big contributor down the stretch. He will now take his incredible puck skills to one of the best NCAA Division III programs in the Nation.
Alden (5’9/175) played in 26 games for the Generals in 2018-19 and recorded eight points. Overall in the parts of three seasons in the NAHL, Alden recorded 64 points in 106 career NAHL games.
Alden is also an alum of the NAPHL, having played for the Wenatchee Wolves 18U team during the 2015-16 season, where he had seven points in 10 games played.
“Hunter was an awesome addition for us. We had a ton of injuries early in the season and acquiring Hunter was a huge piece of righting the ship. Our turnaround started right after the New Year and I don’t think that it’s a coincidence that was when we added Hunter. He was more than we could ask for both on and off the ice. He came to us and bought in from Day 1. We are really happy for Hunter and can’t wait to see the success he has at Plattsburgh,” said Generals GM Bryan Erikson.
“Hunter was a big addition. He played his first game for us on January 5th and from that point on we went 14-8-6 as a team. Really helped us secure a playoff spot and was huge for us in all three zones. I wish Hunter the best of luck in the future,” added Head Coach Joe Lovell.
Plattsburgh plays in the SUNYAC Conference and has won numerous National Championships.
