It is a bit early to be talking about next year’s incoming Spartans, but a new name has been recently added to the list. Mason Appleton of Notre Dame Academy in Green Bay, Wis. has verbally committed to play for the Green and White in 2015.
“There was nothing I didn’t like about the program,” Appleton told the Green Bay Press Gazett about his commitment to the Spartan hockey program. “They just had so many positives I couldn’t turn it down.”
A late bloomer, Appleton has turned into an impressive and physical centerman with strong puck skills to back up a gritty playstyle. In his senior season alone, Appleton racked up 70 points (30 goals, 40 assists).
