Chill forward McGlynn makes NCAA commitment
June 20, 2018
Ladder of Develoment: Andy McGlynn played in 174 career NAHL games and 50 career NA3HL games prior to earning his NCAA commitment.
The Coulee Region Chill (now the Chippewa Steel) of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Andy McGlynn has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The Blugolds play NCAA Division III hockey in the WIAC, where they won the Commissioner’s Cup as league champions this past season.
The 20-year-old native of St. Louis, Missouri, and stand-out player for Affton Youth Hockey, McGlynn began his junior career in the NA3HL with the St. Louis Jr. Blues in 2013-14, where he scored 16 goals and added 19 assists in 36 games, which earned him a tender signing with the Springfield Jr. Blues of the NAHL.
After starting the 2014-15 campaign in Springfield, he would finish out the year with St. Louis, where he scored 14 goals in as many games: during that off-season, he would tender once again with a NAHL club, this time the Corpus Christi IceRays.
In two seasons in South Texas, McGlynn scored 14 goals and 28 assists, before being dealt at last year’s trade deadline to the Coulee Region Chill, where in 2016-17 he added 15 points (4 G, 11 A) in 26 games and two more helpers in the playoffs.
In his final junior season with the Chill in 2017-18, McGlynn recorded his best offensive numbers yet, scoring 15 goals and 28 assists. He was also named to the Midwest Division Team for the 2018 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, where he recorded one goal and one assist.
He also played in the 2014 and 2015 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournaments.
