Captain Matt Lison will be attending Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME. Lison led the Brahmas in the locker room and on the ice this past season. In 58 games played the Pittsburgh, PA native posted 19G – 14A. On December 6, he notched a natural hat trick in the first game of a weekend sweep of the defending National Champion Amarillo Bulls. Matt’s play earned him selection to the NAHL Top Prospect Tournament where he scored one goal in two games for Team South.
The Bowdoin College Polar Bears compete in the NESCAC where they finished the regular season in fifth before capturing the League Championship with a 3 – 2 double overtime win in the tournament finals. The Polar Bears fell in the opening round of the NCAA Div. III Men’s Ice Hockey Championships in another thriller, 4 – 3 to Oswego State.
Kellen Wasell will also be going the NCAA Div. III route as a St. Mary’s University Cardinal. The Cardinals compete in the MAIC where they finished seventh with a 6 – 10 conference record and a 10 – 14 – 1 overall mark.
After joining the Brahmas in mid October, Wasell pitched in with 10G – 14A in 47 games played. Four of his points came at home against the Odessa Jackalopes in early February with 2G – 2A. The scrappy forward from Edmonds, WA finished fourth on the team in scoring and sixth in PIMs with 89. He also led Brahmas regulars in +/- ranking with a -1.
Conner Enciso from Commerce Township, MI also joined the Brahmas in mid October after scoring 1G – 3A with Port Huron in 10 games. Once in a purple and black sweater, Enciso used his speed to put up 11G – 13A in 44 games to finish third on the team. The highlight of his season came against Odessa on February 7, as he erupted for a five point night with 2G – 3A.
Enciso will head off to the NCHA with the Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Raiders will be looking for him to boost their offensive output after finishing seventh in the league with a 7 – 19 – 1 overall record. MSOE rostered a total of 21 freshmen and sophomores this past campaign, so they are poised for a turnaround next season.
