Red Knights defenseman set to play collegiately for Colorado College.

Benilde-St. Margaret's assistant captain announced his intention to attend, and play college hockey at, Colorado College via his Twitter account, Wednesday.

A three-year letterwinner for the Red Knights, Schweitzer was an honorable mention All-Metro West Conference selection last season and earned the team's General Sports Academic Award.

As a freshman and sophomore, he has proven to be one of BSM's top blueliners, averaging over 20 minutes of ice time per game in his first two varsity seasons.

After scoring two goals and 10 points as a freshman, Schweitzer tallied five goals and 15 points last season, including a hat trick in a 7-2 win over Chanhassen.

He was second in power-play goals (3) and power-play points (7) for the Red Knights while leading the team's blueliners with his five goals and 66 shots on goal.

Over the summer, Schweitzer took part in USA Hockey's Select 16 Player Development Camp and was named to the USA Men's Select 17 Team, taking part in the Five Nations Cup in Piestany, Slovakia.

Nate Schweitzer scored five goals and 15 points as a sophomore in 2017-18.
