Austin goalie Robertson makes NCAA DI commitment
The Austin Bruins, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to share that Bruins Goaltender Ethan Robertson has announced his commitment to continue his education and to play NCAA Division I Hockey at Canisius College.
Robertson, 20, has played in 32 career NAHL regular season games over the past two seasons, with 25 of those being with the Bruins.
So far during the 2022-23 season, the 6’2/175 lbs. native of Curtis, ON, has appeared in 15 games and has a record of 10-1-2 with 3 shutouts, a 1.59 goals against average, and a .941 save percentage. Currently, Robertson sits in 2nd among NAHL Goalies in Goals Against Average, 3rd in Save Percentage, and tied for 1st in shutouts.
“I’m excited to announce my commitment to play Division I Hockey and further my education at Canisius College," said Robertson. "I would like to thank everyone who helped me along the way!”
Robertson becomes the second Bruin to announce his college commitment this season, as Forward Gavin Morrissey announced his commitment to Minnesota State, Mankato on December 1st. Robertson also becomes the second Bruins in team history to commit to Canisius College. Former Bruins Goalie and Goalie Coach Keegan Asmundson played four years for the Golden Griffins from 2011-2015.
"Ethan has been great for us this year," said Bruins Head Coach Steve Howard. "He had a tough season of injuries last year and we couldn’t be more excited to see him earn this commitment to Canisius. I think he’s had a chip on his shoulder to prove to himself and others that he is one of the top goalies in the league and our staff is sure glad we have him back this season. Canisius is getting an outstanding goalie and a great person."
Canisius College is a Private Jesuit college located in Buffalo, New York. The Golden Griffins compete at the NCAA Division I level and are members of Atlantic Hockey. Last season, the Golden Griffins finished the year with a record of 16-16-3 and reached the Quarterfinals of the Atlantic Hockey Tournament.
