Sturma to backstop Stevenson


Marko Sturma, 1998 Goaltender, of the NAHL Northeast Generals today announced his commitment to play NCAA Hockey at Stevenson University.

Stevenson University is located in Maryland and plays in the United Collegiate Hockey Conference.  Their schedule is loaded with top teams because of the strength of their Conference.  They play Elmira, Utica, Manhatanville and Wilkes to name a few.

Sturma joined the Generals to start the 2017-2018 season and played in 52 games in 2 years.  He shared the net and number 1 role with Goaltender David Fessenden.

“Marko was huge for us during both years.  It was such a luxury to have 2 starting goalies pushing each other day in and day out.  They are both very different style wise and Marko really made a huge impact on our organization both on and off the ice.”  said Head Coach Joe Lovell.

“A great great kid.”  Said GM Bryan Erikson.  “He saved us numerous time over his 2 years here.  He always played big when the game was the most important.  We are very lucky to have had really only 3 goalies in our 3 years as an NAHL organization.  All 3 have been great (Gabe Vinal, Fezz and Marko), and have set the bar extremely high for the next wave of Generals goaltenders.  Stevenson is getting a great goalie that should step right in and help them from Day 1.”

Marko makes 21 Generals players to make an NCAA commitments this year alone.
