The Steinbach Pistons are pleased to announce that defenseman Cody Longie has committed to the Northland College LumberJacks of the NCAA Division 3.
“We are very excited for Cody as he enters into the next phase of his hockey career and pursues his academic goals,” said Pistons Head Coach/GM Paul Dyck about the former alumni of the USHL’s Fargo Force.
Cody joined the Pistons half-way through the 2014/2015 season, entering the locker room for his first game on January 3rd. Longie began the season playing for his hometown Bismarck Bobcats of the NAHL.
‘Steinbach is a top notch program,” commented Longie about his short time in southeastern Manitoba. “If anyone could experience it, they wouldn’t want to play anywhere else.”
The 6’ 207lbs defenseman ended his junior career with 42 games of experience in the USHL, 26 games in the NAHL and 24 in the MJHL. While Longie was with the Pistons, he accumulated 1 goal and 9 assists for 10 points along with 12 penalty minutes.
“Cody was a solid addition to our defense core and a good fit in our program, “Dyck said. “We wish him all the best with the LumberJacks.”
