University of Utah Hockey has received a commitment from Forward Landon Langenbrunner for the upcoming 2020-21 season.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the program here, looking forward to my Freshman season as a Skatin’ Ute,” said Langenbrunner.
Landon grew up in Cloquet, Minnesota playing High School hockey for Cloquet-Esko-Carlton in the Lake Superior Conference of the Minnesota State High School League. Langenbrunner was Captain of the High School team during his senior year in 2018-19 and tallied 117 points (54G & 63A) in his three seasons with the Lumberjacks.
He was drafted by Madison Capitols 36th overall in United States Hockey League 2016 futures draft. He also played for Team North in the Upper Midwest High School Elite League and with the Minnesota Wilderness of the North American Hockey League before and after his junior & senior seasons.
Landon is no stranger to hockey with his father, Jamie Langenbrunner, playing 18 seasons in the NHL with the Dallas Stars, New Jersey Devils, and St. Louis Blues. He was a member of the Stanley Cup Champions in 1999 with Dallas, and 2003 with New Jersey. Landon is pictured here in 2003 with his parents and the Stanley Cup.
Outside the rink, Landon spends his time in the studio producing music, which he has been doing for over five years.
“Landon’s offensive skill and natural scoring ability is a welcome addition to the program. We couldn’t be happier to have him representing the University of Utah and help us make a mark in our first season in Western Collegiate Hockey League,” said Utah GM AJ Boldan.
Landon is currently undecided in his major at the U.
Utah Hockey would like to welcome Landon and wish him the absolute best in the upcoming season!
