6/5/2018 – DeKalb, IL | Defenseman John Williams has committed to Northern Illinois University for the fall of 2018 and to NIU Hockey for the 2018-2019 season.

Williams previously played for Lane Tech High School and chose to commit to NIU for a few reasons.

“I was very impressed with the campus when I visited and like the distance from home NIU is,” the 18-year-old said.

The 5’10”, 240 lbs. blueliner is an offensive defenseman and models his game after Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien.

The Chicago native will be majoring in history and hopes to win a championship during his time with the Huskies.
