Wausau forward Carlson makes college commitment
The Wausau RiverWolves of the NA3HL are proud to announce that forward Rollie Carlson has committed to play ACHA Division 1 hockey at Midland University.
Carlson, 20, is a native of Blaine, Minnesota and played in 94 games over his two years with the RiverWolves. In those games he recorded 79 points with 25 goals and 54 assists. He becomes the 13th former RiverWolves player to commit to play college hockey.
Carlson (6’1/181) led the RiverWolves in scoring as he posted 12 goals, 32 assists and 44 points in 47 games in a tough 2018-19 campaign for Wausau. And despite his team holding a similar spot near the bottom of the Central Division standings in 2019-20, Carlson's production remained steady, as his 13 goals, 22 assists and 35 points ranked second on the team.
"I am very excited for Rollie and his opportunity to continue his hockey and education careers. I believe Rollie will have a successful career and I look forward to watching his progress, " stated Head Coach Colin Bailey.
Carlson came to Wausau after a three-year career at Centennial High in the Minnesota High School hockey system, where he logged 13 points in 71 games from 2015-18. During that time, Carlson also made his NA3HL debut with the Chicago Bulldogs in 2016-17, playing three games in the league before returning to Centennial.
