Knights defenseman Palmiter makes college commitment
May 21, 2020
The New England Knights of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that Top Prospects defenseman Andrew Palmiter has committed to play ACHA Division 1 hockey for Lindenwood University.
Palmiter, 20, stepped into the team's first season as a key contributor on the ice and respected leader in the locker room.
The 6’0/200 lbs. defenseman began his NA3HL career in 2016-17 in his hometown of Binghamton, New York, where he logged 78 games and 18 points across two seasons from 2016-19 with the Jr. Senators.
During the 2019-20 campaign, he joined the Knights ahead of their inaugural campaign, and posted three goals, 12 assists and 15 points in 42 games while recording some heavy minutes on the New England blue line.
Palmiter's shut-down prowess earned him a spot on the 2020 Coastal Division Top Prospects team, and he notched an assist during February's event.
Palmiter's pre-junior days were spent with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights 16U squad, playing 38 games in 2015-16 -- 20 of which were in the NAPHL, where he was scouted by NA3HL coaches. After his initial season in Binghamton, Palmiter spent a season with the 95 Giants 18U team, before rejoining the Jr. Senators in 2018-19.
