During this past season, three Tomahawks' players made college commitments. Shane Bednard, Alex Jaeckle, and Matt Meier. Now at the end of the season another Tomahawks' player will take his game to the college level next year.

Jordan Watt will play D3 hockey at Neumann University.

Watt played two seasons in Johnstown, and both seasons was a top scorer for the team. In 2012-2013, he was third in scoring on the Tomahawks roster with 37 points (20 goals, 17 assists). This past season Watt was fifth in scoring on the Tomahawks' roster with 34 points (22 goals, 12 assists).

His most memorial game(s) this past year was his back-to-back hat trick games vs. the Michigan Warriors and then the Wenatchee Wild.

Before joining the Tomahawks, Watt played for the Alaska Avalanche for one season in 2011-2012. Appearing in 45 games, he registered 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists).

Watt also had some Major Junior experience as he started his junior hockey career in the QMHL with Victoriaville Tigres. He appeared in eleven games but did not register any points.

Neumann University is located in Aston University which is about 20 miles south-west of Philidelphia Pa.

Currently, there is three former NAHL players on the Knights roster.

Part of the ECAC, the Knights, were Champions in 2012-2013 season and had reached the postseason with long runs since 2006, last season though they finished with a record of 9-12-5.

Good luck to Jordan Watt and we'll be keeping our eyes on Watt has he continues chasing his hockey dreams.
