The Aspen Leafs are proud to announce that forward Tom Bowe has committed to NCAA Division-III Plattsburgh State University. A member of the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC), Plattsburgh is slated to host the NCAA Division-III Men's Ice Hockey Championships at Herb Brooks Arena in Lake Placid in 2022.
A native of Homer, Alaska, Bowe finished the season as the Leafs leading scorer with 69 points (22 goals, 47 assists) in 40 games. He also led the RMJHL in assists, and finished second in points. Last season with the Leafs he tallied an impressive 56 points in only 21 games (29 goals, 27 assists) before being called up to the Kenai River Brown Bears of the NAHL.
"We are very proud Tom's achievement, and wish him the best in the next phase of his hockey career and collegiate life," stated Shaun Hathaway, the Executive Director of Aspen Junior Hockey. "I have no doubt that he will make an immediate impact on the Plattsburgh Cardinal roster, and that he will achieve great success playing NCAA hockey."
