Yellowstone forward Lawman makes NCAA commitment
September 1, 2017
The Yellowstone Quake of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Jesse Lawman has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at St. Olaf College in the MIAC.
Lawman, 20, just finished his first season of playing junior hockey in the NA3HL with the Quake. The 5’9/175 lbs. native of Delano, Minnesota, appeared in 44 regular season games for the Quake this season and finished 3rd in team scoring with 63 points (29 goals, 34 assists).
During the Quake’s run to the Silver Cup Tournament and Frontier Division Championship, Lawman had 11 points in nine playoff games.
He was also selected to and played in the 2017 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament, where he recorded three points in three games for the White team.
"Jesse came in last year as a first year junior player and didn't really know what he was capable of doing on the ice right away, but from recruiting him I knew he could bring a lot to the game. He came from a great High school program in Delano High school in Minnesota so he had a great foundation to start,” said Quake head coach Ryan Theros. “He built confidence throughout and developed very quickly to the speed and strength of junior hockey. He became a go to guy for us last season in every situation and has earned a spot in college with St. Olaf. They are very lucky to have the addition of Jesse to their squad. We are looking forward to Jesse and his success going forward.”
