Nilsen Makes NCAA Commitment

Nilsen commits to Scholastica Picture

The Oklahoma City Blazers announced today that goaltender Ole Nilsen has committed to the NCAA’s St Scholastica Saints for the next 4 years. The 6’5″ Norwegian  went 12 and 3 with a 2.98 GAA for the Blazers last year. Nilsen was awarded the top goaltender award at the WSHL All Star game.

“Ole Nilsen earned this opportunity. Scholastica saw him at the showcase in Vegas where he slammed the door on Missoula and Valencia,” said head coach Tyler Fleck. “Ole is a guy who we could see in the National Hockey League one day. He has everything, size, speed and he can skate and play the puck very well. His biggest asset is his work ethic, he battles as hard or harder than anyone on a day to day basis.”

“I’m excited to join St. Scholastica. They have shown great interest in me and it’s going to be fun playing NCAA hockey. I’m looking forward to meeting my new team and studying again,” said Nilsen. ” My time in OKC was a blast, our team was great and our fans were amazing. The Blazers are more professional than most pro teams.”

“On behalf of the organization and the Blazers nation we wish Ole all the best in the NCAA. I know he’ll turn some heads and has a very promising future ahead. Good luck Ole!”
