The New Jersey Titans, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that goaltender Ryan McInchak has committed to play NCAA Division I Ice Hockey for the American International College Yellow Jackets who play in the Atlantic Hockey Association (AHA). His commitment begins in the fall of 2020.
McInchak, 21, came to the Titans in early February. He appeared in eight games and had a 4 – 3 record with a 3.50 goals against average and .897 save percentage. He won four straight games and posted a 2.41 goals against and .937 save percentage during the win streak.
The Trenton, Michigan native was named honorable mention for the NAHL’s East Division’s Star of the Week for week ending March 8 where he posted a .968 save percentage and .87 goals against average.
“I am super excited for this opportunity at AIC and I’m thrilled to be a part of a growing program with a winning culture,” stated McInchak. “I’d like to thank my family, teammates, coaches and friends for their support, especially Craig Doremus and the Titans organization. This would not be possible without Craig’s hard work and dedication to his players. I’m excited for the future at AIC and look forward to adding to their winning culture.”
“We are extremely proud of Ryan and happy for him and the McInchak family,” stated Titans head coach Craig Doremus. “Ryan’s time in New Jersey, albeit short, was an extremely positive one. His game rounded into shape and he was well respected in the locker room. He ended up having a couple of critical wins for us and you could tell he was going to play a big role for the team down the stretch. AIC is getting a very good goaltender and tremendous young man. We wish Ryan nothing but the best and look forward to following his career at AIC.”
American International College is in Springfield, MA. The Yellow Jackets are coached by Eric Lang. AIC had an overall record of 21-12-1. The Yellow Jackets finished first in Atlantic Hockey with a 21-6-1 record.
