Hermosa Beach native and former Los Angeles Jr. Kings goaltender Mattias Sholl has announced his commitment to attend and play his NCAA Division I hockey at Bemidji State University for the 2021-22 season.

This season, the 2000-born goaltender is playing the 2020-21 season for the USHL’s Youngstown Phantoms. In 12 appearances, Sholl is 3-8-0 with a 3.43 GAA and a .894 save percentage. His 340 saves rank third in the league.

Last season as a member of the NAHL’s Fairbanks Ice Dogs, Sholl was named to the All-NAHL Second Team and recognized as the NAHL’s Midwest Division Most Valuable Player. He was also named to the All-Midwest Division Team and the division’s Goaltender of the Year.

In 41 appearances, Sholl compiled a NAHL-leading 29 wins (29-8-0-1-2 record overall), including three shutouts, to go with a 1.99 GAA (ranking seventh in the league) and .924 save percentage (eighth).

Bemidji State is competing this season in the WCHA and will join the new CCHA for the 2021-22 season.

Also this week, Sholl was tabbed the USHL Goaltender of the Week.

Sholl had a great week between the pipes for the Phantoms, including a pair of wins while pushing aside 81 of the 87 shots he faced in his three appearances.

He made 27 saves in a Friday night win over the Dubuque Fighting Saints before allowing just one goal on 31 shots the next night as the Phantoms swept the back-to-back series over the Fighting Saints.

Although the winning weekend came to a close on Sunday thanks to the Steel, Sholl still stopped 24 shots.

He finished the weekend with a 2.01 GAA and a .931 save percentage.
