The Maryland Black Bears of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that Top Prospects forward Laker Aldridge has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Michigan State University in the B1G.

Aldridge, 21, is in his fourth and final season playing junior hockey in the NAHL. The 6’0/180 lbs. native of Lake Orion, MI, has recorded 25 points (12 goals, 13 assists) in 49 games played so far during the 2021-22 regular season with the Black Bears.

Aldridge was also selected to and played in the 2022 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament in Pittsburgh, PA, where he had a goal and an assist in two games.

“I have absolutely loved my time in Maryland. From the first-class organization, to being able to play in front of the awesome fans, I have absolutely loved my last year of junior hockey here. Coaches Mylymok, Weiss, and Schoen have done nothing but help me every step of the way and I am so grateful to be able to play for them,” said Aldridge.

“Laker is a fierce competitor, who plays the game hard every night. We are excited that he has committed to such a historic program, in a such strong conference. We are happy for Laker and look forward to watching him develop as a student/athlete over the next several years,” said Maryland head coach Clint Mylymok.

Aldridge had played the previous three seasons in the NAHL with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs from 2018-21. His best career season came in 2019-20, when he recorded 33 points in 48 regular season games.

Overall in his NAHL career, Aldridge has played in 165 career regular season games and recorded 95 points.
