Milwaukee goalie Shane makes NCAA commitment
The Milwaukee Power of the NA3HL are proud to announce that goaltender Cole Shane has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Concordia University in Wisconsin.
Shane, a 6'4/194 lbs. native of Park Ridge, IL, played at total of 21 games for the Power during the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons.
In 2021-22, the 20-year-old appeared in two games, posting a 3.03 goals against average and a .930 save percentage.
In 2020-21, he played in 19 games for the Power and posted a 4.17 goals against average and a .899 save percentage.
"Cole is from Chicago, which allowed us to shore him up in our net in the 2020-21 season," said Milwaukee Power VP Hockey Operations and General Manager Kevin Marion. "Cole then underwent hip surgery after the 2020-21 season and came back for a few games during the 2021-22 season. He played great in his return but made the decision to repair his other hip this past winter. Showing his love of the game, Cole continued to work through his recovery which has landed with a team that believes in him. I could not be happier for Cole, as he's stronger than ever and can't wait to hit campus in August. Congratulations Cole and all the best at Concordia.”
"Cole is a true competitor and will be a great addition to our goaltending group. Working with him during the 2021-22 season at the Power, he displayed his abilities, tenacity, and willingness to compete. I look forward to working with Cole on the collegiate level," said Concordia University Assistant Coach Nate Eminger.
