Johnstown defenseman Lewandowski makes NCAA DI commitment
The Johnstown Tomahawks of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that defenseman Caden Lewandowski has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Clarkson University starting in the 2021-22 season.
The 6’4/195 lbs. native of Port Huron, Michigan, was initially committed to play at Robert Morris University next season, but with the dismissal of the program, Lewandowski along with all the other Colonial players have been tasked with finding a new place to call home for the upcoming season.
“It’s great to see that Caden was able to find a new college home after the incredibly unfortunate situation with RMU,” said Head Coach Mike Letizia. “Hopefully a new opportunity for him will allow him to continue his career playing for a great program like Clarkson.”
Lewandowski, 21, recorded five goals and 22 assists for 27 points in 45 games played during the 2020-21 regular season. Lewandowski made his NAHL debut during the 2018-19 season with the WBS Knights.
“I am honored and excited to announce my commitment to further my education and play Division 1 hockey at Clarkson University. Thank you to my family, friends, coaches and teammates who have helped and supported me along the way,” said Lewandowski in a post on social media.
During the 2019-20 season, he made appearances in 35 games with the USHL’s Youngstown Phantoms.
