La Crosse forward Garman makes NCAA commitment
April 2, 2018
The La Crosse Freeze of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Jacob Garman has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Framingham State University.
Garman, 20, just completed his first season of junior hockey in the NA3HL with the Freeze. The 6’2/210 lbs. native of Anchorage, Alaska, recorded 31 points (10 goals, 21 assists) in 47 NA3HL regular season games this season. He also had four points in eight NA3HL Fraser Cup Playoff games, helping the Freeze get all the way to the Fraser Cup Semi-Finals.
Prior to playing in the NA3HL, Garman spent three seasons playing in the NAPHL for the Arizona Bobcats organization. From 2013-15, he played for the Bobcats 16U team and in 2016-17 he played for the Bobcats 18U squad.
During the 2015-16 season, he played in the NAHL for the Corpus Christi IceRays and in the NA3HL for the Sugarland Imperials.
“Jacob is a strong presence on and off the ice, and he plays like it. He is a big strong power forward that is willing to play in every aspect of the game to get the win for the team. Some nights, that means scoring goals or blocking shots. Other nights, it might mean standing up for his teammates. He is the complete package player and will excel in college. Framingham State is getting a fantastic player and person that I believe will carry their program to the next level,” said Freeze head coach Jon Vaillancourt.
“Jacob is a big strong forward that works hard. He gets in front to score dirty goals, which is something we are in need of,” said Guy Anglers, Framingham State head coach.
