Noah Weber Makes Commitment to Air Force Academy
Middleton, WI - Madison Capitols forward, Noah Weber, announced his commitment to continue his hockey career at the Air Force Academy on Monday. Weber becomes the third Capitol to commit this year, and the first to be a Falcon at Air Force.
"Air Force is a great fit for me because it's a bunch of guys who play the game the hard way," says Weber. "The coaching staff is awesome. It offers a lot of great opportunities in life; both during and after your time at the academy"
The native of Eagle River, Wisconsin is in his third year playing in the USHL, and his second with the Capitols. Before junior hockey, Weber played at Shattuck St. Mary's where he posted 90 points in 96 games over the course of two years.
Following Shattuck St. Mary's, Weber was drafted in the 4th round of the 2016 USHL draft where he had 19 points in 53 games his rookie season. Early into his second year, Madison traded Weber to the Tri-City Storm, where he appeared in only half the season games. Madison got Weber back this off-season, where he was named captain of the team.
"Noah is one of those players that has deserved a scholarship from the second he hit the ice," explains head coach Garrett Suter. "Webs is one of the hardest workers you'll see play the game. He plays the right way, and that's why his teammates honored him with the "C", and that's why Air Force honored him with a commitment".
Weber only has 5 points in 23 games this year, but his hockey ability goes well beyond the numbers. Weber is a player that creates separation for puck movement on the offensive side of things, while also playing the gritty, physical style of hockey.
He is a player that will always have his teammate's backs and will never back down from a tough situation in the corner. Weber even has a fight to his name this season.
"It's a big weight lifted off my back," Weber says. "It's been a very long road, and I'm glad it's starting to come together. For now, we still have to get back to work and have a great second half."
Weber and the Capitols will be back in action on Friday, December 28th when they travel to Muskegon to take on the Lumberjacks. Madison's next home game will be January 5th when they take on his former team, the Tri-City Storm, for Be The Miracle Night. The Capitols will be giving away Mark Johnson bobbleheads to the first 1,000 people who walk through the gates.
Don't miss out on any of the action this season as the Capitols embark on their 5th season in the USHL. Ticket packages, suites, and group outing are available now at www.madcapshockey.comor by calling the front office at (608) 257-2277.
