The Northeast Generals, proud members of the NAHL, are thrilled to announce that standout Forward Jake LaRusso has committed to play NCAA D1 Hockey at Stonehill College.
Jake was acquired in a trade right after the Blaine Showcase in September. He has been nothing short of sensational since joining the Generals. In 52 games played for the Generals Jake has a staggering 30 goals and 27 assists from 57 points. His numbers put him high a top of the Generals record books! His 30 goals are a franchise record in a single season. He also holds top 5 honors in Points Per Game (1.08) – 3rd. And his 57 points is good for 5th all time for the Northeast Generals.
In addition to leading the Generals in several categories Jake is also 6th in the league in goals and 11th in the league in points.
Head Coach Bryan Erikson said “Jake has been great on and off the ice since Matt Dibble made the trade early in the year. He is a player we both have coveted for years. I have known Jake for many years, first coaching against him and then through Roc City Elite Summer Program. He is a great kid that fit in right away to our culture on and off the ice. We are so excited to watch Jake play close to us next year. I think Stonehill has done a fantastic job recruiting to gear up for their first official Division 1 season and Jake will be a huge addition to the program. We are extremely excited for Jake!”
Added General Manager Matt Dibble, “I am happy for Jake. I have known Jake for 6 years and have seen him grow as a man and player. He is a great player, teammate, and friend. I look forward to seeing him help build the newly division one Stonehill program. “
