ODESSA, TX- The Odessa Jackalopes are thrilled to announce that Jacks defenseman Conner Lindsoe has made a verbal commitment to Johnson and Wales University to play Division III college hockey for the Wildcats.
“First, I would like to thank my family for all the support they’ve given to me not only this year but the past four as well. Second, I would like to thank all my teammates for helping me on and off the ice, becoming a better person and hockey player. Lastly, I would like to thank my coaches, Adam Phillips and Jason Smith, for the advice they have given me on what I should do the next four years of my life,” Lindsoe said. “I am truly excited to begin pursuing a Culinary Nutrition degree at such a prestigious culinary school.”
A native of Three Forks, Montana, Lindsoe is in his first year with the North American Hockey League and the Odessa Jackalopes. In eleven games played so far, in his rookie season, Lindsoe has accumulated three assists.
“We are thrilled for Conner. Johnson and Wales University is an outstanding fit for Conner both academically and athletically,” said Jackalopes Interim Head Coach Adam Phillips. “Conner has maintained an excellent attitude, strong work ethic, and has been a great teammate all year. We are looking forward to having him back in the lineup very soon. He is a fantastic young man who will be a great addition to the community and classroom, and he will be an excellent addition to a hockey program on the rise.”
