Uncommitted 1996 | Aberdeen Wings Goaltender Forbes Ploszaj
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.
Forbes Ploszaj began his Junior Hockey career during the 2013-14 season with the Corpus Christi Ice Rays, followed by a 2014-15 season with both the Wenatchee Wild and Odessa Jackalopes. Ploszaj played his 2015-16 campaign in Canada in the BCHL, returning to America to join the Aberdeen Wings in November 2016.
Earning a win in his first game with the Wings, the Arizona native currently holds a 17-9-0 record, including a shutout on December 16, 2016. Ploszaj went on to register a 7 game win streak from January 27, 2017- February 17, 2017 and currently ranks top 20 in GAA among all Tier 2 Junior Hockey Goaltenders to play over 600 minutes this season.
Ploszaj was drafted #224 overall in the 2014 USHL Entry Draft by the Bloomington Thunder.
Forbes Ploszaj and the Aberdeen Wings have four games remaining in the 2016-17 season.
