Shreveport forward Dorfman makes NCAA DI commitment
The Shreveport Mudbugs of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Braiden Dorfman has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Dartmouth College in the ECAC.
Dorfman, 20, is currently playing in his third and final season in the NAHL and first with the Mudbugs. The 6’1/175 lbs. native of Nashville, TN, is having a career season thus far for the Mudbugs. Dorfman currently leads the team in scoring with 28 points (9 goals, 19 assists) in 25 games played.
“I’m proud and beyond excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 college hockey at Dartmouth College! Huge thanks to my family, teammates, coaches, and friends that have supported me along the way,” said Dorfman on Twitter.
Dorfman had played the previous two seasons for the Chippewa Steel in the NAHL. In 82 career NAHL games he has recorded 58 points.
“Braiden has been a great addition this season. He brings some quiet leadership, consistent play, and let’s his play speaks for itself. He has a great hockey IQ, an excellent offensive punch to his game, and his defensive game has grown tremendously. Braiden has evolved into an all-situations player. On top of all this, he has gone above and beyond with his dedication to his studies. Mudbugs Hockey wishes Braiden and Dartmouth all the best in the future,” said Mudbugs head coach Jason Campbell.
