October 19, 2016
Former NAPHL netminder Jeremy Swayman, who played in the NAPHL this past season for the Pikes Peak Miners (now Colorado Springs Tigers), has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at the University of Maine in Hockey East.
Swayman, 17, played the entire 2015-16 season in the NAPHL for the Pikes Peak Miners 18U team. In 18 regular season games played, Swayman posted a 9-8-1 record with a 1.79 goals against average and a 94.0% save percentage. His four shutouts tied for the NAPHL 18U lead and he ranked 3rd in save percentage last season.
Swayman (6’2/185) also was selected to and played in the 2015-16 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game in Troy, Michigan.
Swayman was tendered by the NAHL’s Wichita Falls Wildcats last season, but made the 2016-17 Sioux Falls Stampede roster this season in the USHL. Swayman has started the first five games of the season for the Stampede, going 2-2-1 with a 3.25 goals against average (GAA) and a .800 save percentage. He was also a draft pick of the Stampede in the 2016 USHL Draft.
A native of Anchorage, Alaska, Swayman spent the 2014-15 season with South Anchorage High School where he held a 1.27 GAA.
