St. Cloud forward Lajoie makes NCAA DI commitment

December 9, 2021

Brandon Lajoie was a member of Team NAHL, which competed in the 2019 Sirius Ice Hockey World Cup in Sochi, Russia.

The St. Cloud Norsemen of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Brandon Lajoie has made his NCAA Division I commitment to the University of Alaska-Anchorage, which returns to the ice for the 2022-23 season.

Lajoie, 20, who is in his fourth season playing junior hockey in the NAHL, will be playing his college hockey close to home. The 5’11/180 lbs. native of Eagle River, Alaska, has played in 147 regular season games in the North American Hockey League, scoring 70 points on 36 goals and 34 assists.

Lajoie is currently tied for the team-lead in goals for St. Cloud this season with 9 and is fifth on the team in scoring with 13 points.

“When they announced that UAA was coming back, for me there was nothing better than playing 15 minutes away from your home for college hockey,” said Lajoie. “I am excited for the next chapter. There’s a lot of history with the program, so to be part of bringing it back to hopefully its glory days is awesome.”

“It’s a perfect match,” said Norsemen head coach Corey Millen. “He’s an Alaska kid who loves the program and they need to get quality kids together to rebuild their program and he’s a perfect fit. It’s great for both the program and for Brandon. He’s played a lot of games in this league and it’s proof that hard work and commitment pays off.”

Lajoie was a member of Team NAHL, which competed in the 2019 Sirius Ice Hockey World Cup in Sochi, Russia, where he recorded one assist in four games played.
