A few days ago, Jason Pawloski, a goaltender who spent last season with the Austin (as in Austin, Minn.) Bruins of the North American Hockey League tweeted that he has committed to play for Minnesota State. The 17-year-old will be moving on to the United States Hockey League this coming season and play for the Indiana Ice. According to an article in the Austin Daily Herald, Pawloski plans to join MSU in two years.
An Omaha native, Pawloski went 17-3-2 last season with a .919 save percentage and a 2.52 goals-against average.
"I'm really excited to play for a Minnesota school," Pawloski told the Daily Herald. "It takes some pressure off, but you still have to play hard or they can take it away."
The Mavericks goaltending situation for this year includes sophomore Stephon Williams, last year's WCHA rookie of the year; senior Evan Karambelas; and freshman Cole Huggins.
