GREAT FALLS — The Great Falls Americans hockey goaltender Viktor Wennberg has signed a letter of intent with Northland (Wis.) College, an NCAA Division III school.
Wennberg, who will turn 21 on March 31, is a native of Stockholm, Sweden. Northland College is a private liberal arts school in Ashland, Wis.
The Lumberjacks are affiliated with the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC).
Wennberg played two seasons with the Americans (2018-2020) and was 41-8-1, including two playoff games during the 2020 Fraser Cup Playoffs (playoffs were cut short due to the coronavirus). He amassed 1,350 saves, had a 1.93 goals against average and an 0.936 save percentage during his 27-game regular season (21-5-1-0).
Wennberg, who had six shutouts, was selected to play in the 2019 Top Prospects Tournament in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
“Viktor is a good goalie but a better person. He bought into what we were trying to do here, and he did a great job both on and off the ice,” Americans coach and general manager Greg Sears said. “We are very excited that Viktor has committed to Northland College.”
