Valor Christian grad, Highlands Ranch native Hoehn wraps junior career with commitment to NCAA D-III SUNY Potsdam
Mason Hoehn spent the 2020-21 season playing junior hockey for the USPHL’s Richmond Generals before starting the 2021-22 campaign with the NAHL’s Springfield Jr. Blues.
The Highlands Ranch native finished this past season back in Richmond and recently made plans for the 2022-23 season with his commitment to play at NCAA Division III SUNY Potsdam.
“Potsdam started recruiting me in January and I was able to visit the campus and see what an amazing school it is,” said Hoehn. “I committed about a week after my visit. Playing college hockey has always been my goal in hockey, so it is a huge dream come true to be able to play at Potsdam. The most appealing thing about the team is how close they are as a team. This was very evident when I visited and spent time with the team. Academically, Potsdam has a top-notch business school which I will be going into to get a degree during my time there.”
“I’m very thankful for everyone that has helped me get to play college hockey. The teams and leagues I’ve played in have all helped improve me on and off the ice and get me to the next level.”
At Potsdam, located in Potsdam, N.Y., Hoehn will be majoring in Business Management with an eye on going into the real estate business after college.
This past season with Richmond and Springfield, Hoehn tallied eight goals and 12 points in 31 regular-season games, adding four points in six USPHL playoff games.
“The Richmond Generals are one of the best programs in juniors not only for advancement, but also because everyone involved in the organization is a family,” said Hoehn, also a Valor Christian High School alum. “I couldn’t ask for a better team to play for.”
Also a Littleton Hockey Association grad, Hoehn said he can rest a little easier this offseason.
“Committing to Potsdam has definitely been a sigh of relief and helped me enjoy the offseason knowing I will be going to a great school and playing some great hockey next year,” Hoehn said. “My primary focus going forward is getting bigger, stronger, and faster for next season.”
