The Minnesota Wilderness of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are proud to announce that veteran forward Nick Altmann has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
Altmann, 21, completed his third season playing in the NAHL with the Wilderness in 2017-18 and finished his NAHL career with 23 goals and 33 assists for 56 points in 146 regular season games. That included 27 points in 58 games played during the 2017-18 season. The 6’0/185 lbs. native of Duluth, Minnesota, and Duluth East High School alum also compiled 2 goals and 5 assists for 7 points in 13 career playoff games.
