St. Cloud, MN – The St. Cloud State University Huskies received a commitment from Janesville, WI native Jonah Aegerter on August 12. The 16 year-old center announced via Twitter “I’m extremely proud and honored to announce my commitment to St. Cloud State. Thank you to my family, coaches, and friends who have supported me along the way.”
The 5’9″ 154 pound right-shooting Aegerter skated for the Oakland Jr. Grizzlies of the High Performance Hockey League (HPHL) in 2019-20 registering 26 goals and 63 assists for 89 points in 83 games. Previous to the Grizzlies, Aegerter was with the Madison (WI) Capitals Bantams. Most recently, Aegerter was the USHL Tri-City Storms’ first choice and 18th overall in the leagues 2020 Phase I Draft.
Undersized, but still a youngster with time to fill out physically, Aegerter has a great deal of upside potential. He has good breakaway speed and skill and competes hard with good puck tenacity. Neutral Zone, an amateur scouting service noted Aegerter as a “strong skater who uses his speed to beat defenders. He has a quick release with the ability to score goals. He has great vision, with the ability to set up his teammates for scoring opportunities. ” Neutral Zone had Aegerter ranked 130th in their top 250 USA players with a 2004 birth date.
This was a nice commitment for the Huskies as Aegerter was on the radar of several other prominent schools.
Presumably, Aegerter will have several years of Junior A hockey ahead of him before joining the Huskies.
