Mustangs’ Zöllner commits to NCAA’s New England College Junior Hockey News

Former Ogden Mustangs forward and 2015-16 leading scorer Adam Zöllner is heading to New England College for the 2016-17 season.

Adam will join his brother Andreas, also a former Mustang, who played for NEC last season. Andreas had a standout freshman season with 19 points in 26 games. Adam and Andreas both play a similar style of game, both hold multiple Mustang franchise records and both even registered the exact same amount of regular season assists (44) in their lone seasons in Ogden.

"It was a hard decision since I had a great time in Ogden," Adam said, "but I'm ready for a new challenge, and I'm excited to finally play with my brother again. I'll always be a Mustang."

New England College is located in Henniker, New Hampshire and competes in the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) of the NCAA.

Adam — a 6-foot-3-inch, 183-pound Varnamo, Sweden, native — completed this past season with a total of 80 points in 57 games as a Mustang. 74 of those points came in the regular season. That is the highest single point total in Mustangs history. Adam also leads the Mustangs all time with 1.40 points per game.

Adam did have one more year of junior eligibility remaining, but elected to get the early start at the NCAA level, rather than return to juniors.

“I’m really proud and happy for Adam’s commitment to New England College,” said Ogden head coach Jake Laime. “This is a great opportunity for him to play for a great program and play with his brother. Just like he did in Ogden, I have no doubt that Adam will follow in Andreas's footsteps and make his own definite impression for that team.”

Adam is the fourth Mustang to officially announce an NCAA commitment this season, joining Schuyler Seyfert who committed to Plattsburgh State UniversityCaleb Pola who committed to Stevenson University and Andreas Pettersson who committed to Playmouth State University. The Mustangs had six players move on to the NCAA last season and five players the season before. They have the highest NCAA placement rate in the Western States Hockey League.
