The Yellowstone Quake, proud members of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL), are pleased to announce that goaltender Lance Knudson, from Crosby, North Dakota, recently made his commitment to play NCAA Division III hockey for Hamline University in St. Paul Minnesota.
Knudson, 21, stands at 6-3 and weighs in at 205 pounds. In his two years of playing for the Quake, Knudson played 64 career games. This season, Knudson finsihed with a save percentage of 92.3%, which ranked 8th in the NA3HL.
Hamline University, a private liberal arts college, is the oldest institution of higher learning in Minnesota. The University is a member of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC), and the Men’s Hockey team won their last MIAC title in 2015, beating Saint Mary’s 4-2.
Ryan Theros, head coach for the Yellowstone Quakes, expresses, "I am very proud of Lance and his accomplishments. He has worked very hard to continue to develop as a goalie and as a leader on and off the ice. I know Lance will be successful in life as he moves forward, and I couldn't be happier that I got an opportunity to be a part in his hockey career. I know he will do very well in college for Hamline University."
The Yellowstone Quake Organization wishes Knudson the best of luck as he continues his hockey career and starts his college education at Hamline University.
