Uncommitted 96 | Erik Stager Forward Wilkes Barre Scranton Knights
The Uncommitted 1996 series continues, focusing on players aging out of Junior Hockey who have yet to commit to a University or advanced to a higher level of hockey for the 2017-18 season.
In his third and final season playing at the Tier 3 Junior Hockey level, Wilkes Barre Scranton Knights Forward Erik Stager is having statistically his best season to date. A Pennsylvania native, Stager began his Junior Hockey campaign with the Central Penn Panthers where he played two seasons from 2014-16.
Prior to the 2016-17 season Stager joined the Exton Bulls, registering nearly a point per game through 27 games and contributing to 45% of the Bulls overall season goals. In early February 2017, the 5'9 165lb skater transferred to the 32-4-0 Knights.
Stager and the Knights will enter the NA3AHL playoffs as the #2 overall seed.
