JR. BLUES’ OLIVER MAKES NCAA COMMITMENT

The St. Louis Jr. Blues, proud members of the NA3HL, are pleased to announce that goaltender Will Oliver has committed to Wentworth Institute of Technology, The Leopards, from Boston, Mass., play NCAA Division III hockey in the Commonwealth Coast Conference.

A native of St. Louis, the 6’2, 185 lb ‘keeper has done quite well between the pipes since joining his hometown team in October. In 14 games, Oliver has posted a 8-5-0 record with a 2.30 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage. His most recent start was arguably his finest of the season, as he stopped all 48 shots against rival Peoria.

“Will has been a big addition to our team this year,” said Jr. Blues head coach Chris Flaugher. “He’s a strong, smart goalie with great fundamentals. We’re incredibly proud of his commitment to Wentworth and wish him the best of luck in Boston.”

Oliver joins Clayton Dawe (SUNY-Fredonia) as Jr. Blues players who have made college commitments this year.
