Spooner, Wisconsin (July 29th, 2019) – The Wisconsin Lumberjacks are pleased to announce the signing of 2001-born goalie, Cole Manahan, for the 2019-2020 season.

The Manahan signing sees the Lumberjacks fill their third and final goalie roster spot for their Inaugural Season.

“Cole is an extremely skilled goalie who was a top end backstop for the Minnesota State High School Hockey League powerhouse Hermantown Hawks, in Hermantown, MN,” said Lumberjacks Director of Scouting Nate Haskins.

Manahan, 18, standing at 6’5”, 210lbs. joins the Lumberjacks after starting 46 regular season games for Hermantown all while posting a 2.01 goals against average and a .914 save percentage. While with the Hawks, Manahan led his team to the 2018 State Tournament. Manahan’s senior campaign saw him make the round of 54 for Minnesota State HP-17’s.

Nate Haskins had these further comments on the Manahan signing, “I’ve been in conversation with the Manahan family since back in April. I believe with Cole’s size, skill set, compete level and dedication he has what it takes to make a strong push to play at the next level. I was happy when he made the trip to Spooner and met with the staff. I think it’s a great fit.”

When contacted about his signing, Manahan had these comment, “I really enjoyed my visit to Spooner. The facilities and the staff were top notch. I felt a sense of it being a place I believe I can continue to grow and develop my game. It is my intention to come in and help create a winning culture.”
