Orange native, JSerra, Jr. Ducks grad Pavlisin commits to NCAA D-III powerhouse Norwich
The Kenai River Brown Bears of the North American Hockey League announced today that Top Prospects goaltender Landon Pavlisin has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Norwich University.
Pavlisin, 20, backstopped the resurgent Brown Bears to what was going to be a spot in the Robertson Cup Playoffs during the 2019-20 season, along with putting up some solid numbers while facing a barrage of shots.
“We are extremely excited to Landon and his commitment to Norwich University,” said Kenai River head coach Kevin Murdock. “He was a big addition for us this season and was a workhorse on the backend. We look forward to following his career as he moves into the next level.”
The Orange native ended up facing the most shots of any NAHL netminder this past season, facing 1,373 shots in all in 41 games played. Pavlisin also tied for the league lead in games played with 41 and was second in minutes played with 2,342. He also ended up third in the league in wins with a 23-12-4 record to go along with a 3.13 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage.
Pavlisin won the Midwest Division’s Star of the Week three times this season in October, November, and March.
For his efforts, he was selected to and played in the 2020 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, helping the Central Division to an undefeated record at the event.
During his youth hockey days, Pavlisin played for JSerra High School and the Anaheim Jr. Ducks.
