Flyers’ Carlson commits to Fredonia State Blue Devils

February 18, 2015


Flyers D Jon Carlson (94) has committed to the Fredonia State University Blue Devils (NCAA Div III) for the 2015-2016 season. The Fort Francis, Ontario native is set to graduate from Junior Hockey after this season after spending the last four years with the Fort Francis Lakers (SIJHL), Portage Terriers (MJHL) and the Winkler Flyers.

Carlson was acquired by the Flyers in an off-season trade with the Portage Terriers before the 2014-2015 season and quickly took over as one of the club leaders on the blue line and in the dressing room. Carlson was named an assistant captain this season.

To date, Carlson has played in 216 regular season games for Fort Francis, Portage and Winkler and has 87 points (31 goals – 56 assists). He has also played in 35 playoff games over the past three seasons, recording 16 points (9 goals – 7 assists).

The Fredonia State Blue Devils play in the SUNYAC division of NCAA Div III Men’s Hockey, and are based out of Fredonia, New York, USA.

The Flyers would like to congratulate Jon for his decision to continue his hockey career and education at FSU.
