The St. Louis Jr. Blues, proud members of the NA3HL, are pleased to announce that forward Zach Wilson has committed to play college hockey at the University of Arkansas. The Razorbacks play ACHA hockey in the SECHL.
A native of Ballwin, Mo. and former standout at Chaminade College Prep, Wilson was a consistent performer in his lone season for the Jr. Blues. In 46 regular-season games, the 6’, 170 lb right-hander scored 13 goals and added 20 assists. His best stretch of the season came from January 25thto February 9th, when he notched a five-game point streak (4 G, 3 A). He also suited up for all seven games of the Jr. Blues’ playoff run, recording three assists.
“Zach was a great, steady hand for us this season,” said Jr. Blues head coach Chris Flaugher. “He worked hard whenever he touched the ice and did a lot of little things that don’t show up on the stat-sheets. We wish him all the best of luck down in Fayetteville.”
Wilson becomes the Jr. Blues’ seventh college commitment this off-season. He will also not be the only Jr. Blues alum skating for the Hogs next season, as defenseman Cam McAtee will begin his sophomore season at Arkansas next year.
