Gilleshammer Commits to Concordia!

The Northeast Generals proud member of the North American 3 Hockey League are pumped to announce that dynamic center Nathan Gilleshammer has committed to play his College hockey at Concordia-Wisconsin.

Nathan was acquired by the Generals at the trade deadline to help cement the depth down the middle of the ice.  And Nathan did just that.  He slotted into a top 6 role and delivered.  He helped the Generals to a historic season.  The Generals went 44-0 in the division and 45-2 overall before getting to the Fraser Cup Semi-Finals.  In 12 regular season games Nathan had 4 goals and 11 assists for 15 points and a +15.  In the playoffs he was even better.  In 8 games he put up 1 goal, 7 assists for 8 crucial points.

“Darryl and I decided we needed depth at center and targeted Nathan after playing (and losing) to Mason City in the NA3HL Showcase.  He is a gritty player that is dynamic in open ice.  He came in and from Day 1 was a huge impact player for us both on and off the ice.  We had one of the younger rosters in the league so getting a 2001 was important.  We wanted to add a veteran presence.  It was awesome to see how quickly the boys welcomed him and how great Nathan was.  He was a huge factor in our historic season and we can’t wait to watch him at Concordia.  They are getting a great player and person.”  Said GM Bryan Erikson.

Head Coach Darryl Locke added, “Happy for Nathan.  A great kid that bought into what we were doing right away.  He brought skill but also physicality to our lineup.  Being an older player he also helped show the younger guys what they needed to do in order to be ready for every shift.  We are proud of our group from 2021-22 and excited that Nathan made such a huge impact.  We can’t wait to see him have the same success that all of our guys do at the next level.”
