The Springfield Jr. Blues, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that goaltender Ryan Wilson has committed to play NCAA Division 1 hockey for Army-West Point, a member of Atlantic Hockey.
Wilson, 19, is in his first season playing in the NAHL with the Jr. Blues. In 15 appearances this season, the 6’2/181 lbs. native of Darien, Connecticut, holds a 6-6-0-1 record with a 2.85 goals against average and a .904 save percentage.
Wilson also has two shutouts so far this season.
“Ryan is a great player and person, and we are so proud of him,” said Head Coach Tyler Rennette. “West Point is getting a hard working and dedicated player with loads of potential.”
Wilson took to Twitter to make his announcement, and said, “Proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 college hockey at Army West Point. Thank you to my teammates, coaches, friends, and family who made this possible. #GoArmy.”
Wilson is the 4th player on the Jr. Blues to commit to a Division 1 program. He joins Jonathan Panisa (UMASS-Amherst), Caden Villegas (Union), and Hunter Longhi (Harvard).
At Army he will join fellow alum Patrick Smyth, who is in his first season at West Point.
