Shreveport forward McCormick makes NCAA DI commitment
The Shreveport Mudbugs of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Mason McCormick has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for the Air Force Academy in Atlantic Hockey.
McCormick, 20, has played the past two seasons in the NAHL. During the 2020-21 season, the 6’3/185 lbs. native of Vernona, WI, appeared in 46 regular season games for the Mudbugs and recorded 22 points (7 goals, 15 assists). In 10 Robertson Cup Playoff games, McCormick posted six points, helping his team to the title.
“Mason is a total package hockey player. He has size, skill, and great hockey IQ. He brings an intensity and competitive level to the rink every day that is rarely matched. Complimenting his intensity and competitive level is his ability to stay poised on the ice during play which makes him very positionally sound and supporting his teammates wherever they need him. He makes everyone around him better because of all the above attributes. We are very proud that Mason has decided to serve his country and continue his hockey career through the Air Force Academy," said Mudubugs head coach Jason Campbell.
McCormick spent the 2019-20 season playing in the NAHL for both the Austin Bruins and the Springfield Jr. Blues. He put up 16 points in 35 games played between the two.
Prior to playing junior hockey, McCormick played youth hockey for both Verona Area High and Team Wisconsin.
