After an impressive showing at the NAHL Showcase, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights forward Lincoln Hatten verbally committed to play Division I hockey for Army West Point over the weekend.
Hatten, a 6’3″ 185 pound forward out of Allen, TX had an solid rookie campaign with the Knights tallying 10 points in 47 regular season games. Hatten then took his game to the next level during the playoffs as the Knights won the East Division and advanced to the Robertson Cup Finals in May. Hatten put up five points in seven games during the Knights’ run to the finals.
“I speak for our entire staff when I say that Army is getting both a great player and person in Lincoln” said Knights Head Coach Tom Kowal. “He’s worked extremely hard on and off the ice from day one in Wilkes-Barre and has earned this opportunity to play at the Division I level.”
With Hatten’s commitment to Army, the Knights now have ten players on the current 2018-19 roster committed to Division I programs.
