Aberdeen defenseman Carlstrom makes NCAA DI commitment
The Aberdeen Wings, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are proud to announce that defenseman Devon Carlstrom has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Stonehill College in Easton, MA.
Carlstrom, a 6'1/185 lbs. defenseman from Palm Beach Gardens, FL, is currently in his third season in the NAHL with the Wings.
So far this season, the 20-year-old has three goals and 12 assists for 15 points in 36 games played. Over the course of his career in Aberdeen, he's notched eight goals and added 29 assists in 132 regular season games, plus two more assists in nine playoff games.
Last week, Carlstrom was selected to play in the 2023 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament. However, because of this commitment, that spot is now being given to Wings defenseman Nick Justice.
"Devon has utilized his multiple years of junior hockey to develop into a solid Division I defenseman," Wings head coach Scott Langer said. "He is a leader that will help a new program build a solid culture."
While the hockey program at Stonehill has been around since 1978, the school moved their programs to Division I in April 2022.
"I am proud and excited to announce my commitment to play Division I hockey at Stonehill College," Carlstrom said. "I want to thank my parents, coaches, and teammates for helping me along the way. I am excited to be a part of the Stonehill hockey program as they enter their first full season in D1."
