The Northeast Generals of the North American Hockey League are proud to announce that 99 born defenseman Matt Smoliga has committed to play his College hockey at the Wentworth Institute of Technology.
The 6’2″, hard hitting D man, joined the Generals after starting the year with the Amarillo Bulls. In 22 games Matt had 2 goals and 2 assists for 4 points with the Generals.
“Matt was a great acquisition for us this past year. He came in and was great on the ice but also tremendous in the locker room. Just a great kid that came to the rink ready to work each and every day. He bought into our program and was an immediate presence in the locker room and in the community. Really happy for Matt and his decision to stay local. He will join fellow General Charlie Reid next year which is awesome. Wentworth is getting a great player and young man.” said Generals Head Coach/GM Bryan Erikson.
