Northeast forward Borst makes NCAA commitment
April 23, 2020
The Northeast Generals of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are proud to announce that forward Max Borst has committed to play NCAA Division III Hockey for St. John’s University.
Borst, 20, joined the Generals for the second half of the 2019-20 season and played 10 games. The 6’0/181 lbs. native of Edina, Minnesota recorded two assists in those games, but brought great leadership and grit to the team down the stretch.
Over the course of two seasons in the NAHL, Borst played 72 games and recorded 8 goals and 13 assists for 21 points with the Generals, Lone Star Brahmas, and Maryland Black Bears.
Borst represented the Black Bears this past summer as he was selected to play on Team NAHL at the 2019 Sirius Ice Hockey World Cup in Sochi, Russia.
“Max’s game goes way beyond numbers. He plays hard at all times. He gets pucks out and works very hard along the walls. He was a great addition to our program both on the ice and in the locker room. We are really happy for Max and think St. John’s got a great one. His leadership and intensity will allow him to seamlessly adjust to College Hockey where I think he will make an immediate impact,” said Generals Head Coach Bryan Erikson.
St. John’s University is a member of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC). They finished the 2019-2020 season in first place with a league record of 9-3-4 and an overall record of 12-9-5.
