IHM Welcomes American Defenseman Colin Whitt

by Chris White

International Hockey Management is proud to announce the signing of American defenseman, Colin Whitt, of Worcester State University in NCAA Division-III. The Southlake, Texas native was born June 3, 1995. Named an Assistant Captain in 2019-2020, Whitt completed his collegiate career with a stat line of 77GP-3G-6A-9PTS. The 6’1, 195 pound left shot is looking to play in Europe, this season.

The steady presence on the Lancers’ back-end plays a physical, team-first style of game. In 2016-2017, Whitt led WSU in Rookie Defenseman Scoring. Worcester State University competes in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference, at the NCAA Division-III level. Last season, they finished 6th in the conference. Whitt played in all 26 games, his Senior season.  The former High School All-American was second among defensemen in scoring, on his 2015-2016 Florida Eels USPHL squad, recording a 20-point season. 

Worcester State University Men's Ice Hockey Assistant Coach, John Coughlin, gushed, 

"Colin Whitt is one of the most remarkable young men that I have had the pleasure to be associated with. He was a Honor Roll student for 4 years, and has given 100% at every practice, and game, throughout his career. He out-works everybody, every day, and he rarely gets beat; if he does, he recovers in time to make the play. It is all about results, with Colin. He knows his game, and does not try to do too much. I would want him on my team any day!  He has an exceptional work ethic, is a good locker room guy, plays a physical game, and keeps it simple. If there is anybody deserving of an opportunity to play at the next level, it is Colin! He leads by example; we need more just like him."

International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented, 

“We’re excited to get to work in finding Colin opportunities overseas. He is your typical meat and potatoes hard-working defender, that every team needs to be successful. He is selfless and is always looking to improve. We’re honored Colin has entrusted IHM to guide him in his aspiration to find a contract at the professional level.”
