Wisconsin forward Anderson makes college commitment
July 28, 2015
The Wisconsin Whalers, proud members of the NA3HL, are pleased to announce that two-year forward Alex Anderson has committed to play ACHA Division I hockey at Robert Morris University in Illinois.
Anderson, 21, just completed his second and final season playing in the NA3HL, which were both spent with the Whalers. During the 2014-15 season, the native of Knife River, Minnesota had a career season with 49 points in 44 games, which ranked 3rd on the Wisconsin roster in scoring. That included 11 goals and 38 assists, along with a +20 rating and four game-winning goals. Anderson also had four points in five playoff games for the Whalers.
During his two-year NA3HL career, Anderson had 61 points in 56 career regular season games. Prior to playing for the Whalers, Anderson spent a season playing for Rochester Ice Hawks.
During the final week of the NA3HL regular season, Anderson (5’11/175) was honored as the NA3HL’s Central Division Star of the Week for his six-point and +7 effort in two wins.
“Alex got better as the season went along last year and was playing his best hockey as we entered the playoffs. He was a big reason for our success and a big part of our offensive depth this past year,” said Whalers head coach Tom McDermott.
"We've added another high quality character athlete to the Eagles," said Hockey Director Tom Wendlandt. "We expect Alex to contribute in all areas of the game, besides making a special impact on the power play. He's a young man who's carved his niche in the hockey world very independently, and we know he'll fit into our culture very well."
