New England forward Hamner makes NCAA commitment
May 16, 2017
The New England Stars of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Brandon Hamner, 21, has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Framingham State University for the 2017-18 season.
Hamner, a 5’11/181 lbs. forward from Waltham, Massachusetts, was a two-year member of the Stars’ Junior Program, coming from Waltham High School. This past season, Hamner registered 20 goals and 18 assists for 38 points in his 44 games played, putting him 5th in points on the team.
“Brandon Hamner was a complete, 200-foot player for us the past two seasons. Brandon plays with an edge, has a great shot, loves to learn, and was a great leader. He’s the prototypical power forward – grit, physical, lives in front of opposition net, and has nice hands. He has worked really hard the last two seasons and has been rewarded for it,” said Stars Head Coach Darryl Green.
Hamner played for the Stars during the 2015-16 season while the team was in the NA3EHL. He had 28 points in 41 games played. Overall in his two-year junior career, he had 66 points in 85 regular season games with New England.
Framingham State University is located just 20 miles west of Boston, offering students all the cultural and career benefits of a world-class city. The University is situated on a beautiful, 78 acre, traditional New England campus in Framingham, the largest town in Massachusetts.
