New Jersey 18U forward Ostbloom gets call to the NAHL
October 25, 2019
The New Jersey Jr. Titans of the NAPHL are pleased to announce that 18U forward Nick Ostbloom has been called up to play for the Fairbanks Ice Dogs in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
Ostbloom, 17, was in his first season playing for the Jr. Titans and third in the NAPHL overall. The 5’8/150 lbs. native of Fairbanks, Alaska, had a great start to the season with the Jr. Titans, recording 10 points in his first nine games, which included eight points in seven NAPHL games.
In three NAHL games to date with Fairbanks, Ostbloom has recorded one assist.
“Our plan at the New Jersey Jr. Titans is quite simple, which is to develop our midget players as quickly as possible to get them ready to move onto the NAHL and beyond and Nick is another great example of that success,” said George Haviland, Director of Hockey for the New Jersey Ttians. “Nick is a loss to our team, but we are extremely happy and proud to be able to prepare him for the next level of hockey through our midget model of giving players the resources to move on.”
Prior to playing for New Jersey this season, Ostbloom played in the NAPHL for the Sioux Falls Power 16U team during the 2018-19 season, where he recorded 15 points in 12 regular season games and then led Sioux Falls in scoring during the Dixon Cup Playoffs with 10 points in five games played as the Power made it all the way to the Championship Game.
During the 2017-18 season, he played in the NAPHL for the Alaska Oilers 16U team, recording three points in six NAPHL games.
