The '99 native of Greece, NY joined the Wizards in late October, and went on to win 13 games in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), while posting a 2.45 GAA and .923 save percentage.
"Dylan came in and immediately claimed the net for our team," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "He provided us with instant stability between the pipes, and it came as no surprise when we won his first three starts. Dylan is as talented as any goaltender we've ever had with the Wizards, and Kory [Falite] and I are looking forward to following him at the next level."
When Wiemer arrives at Brockport this fall, he will be part of an incoming freshmen class that includes six more alums from the EHL. Included on that list is Andrew Harley, the 2nd leading scorer from the 2019-20 Wizards team, who made his decision back in mid-December. Overall, Wiemer is looking forward to playing college hockey close to his hometown.
"I would like to thank Freddy and Kory for taking me in and making me feel welcome and guiding me along in order to reach my dreams of playing college hockey," said Wiemer. "I would like to thank the organization for its great facilities and giving us the chance to get better both on and off the ice. Of course, I would like the thank my family for being supportive whenever I needed them, and for being my number one fan. And lastly, I would like to thank my teammates for making this experience one to remember by creating friendships that will last forever."
While the season was cut short due to the COVID-19 virus and outbreak, Wiemer and his teammates should still be very proud of the playoff run they put together. After knocking off the New England Wolves in the Play-In Round, the Wizards battled their way past the Seahawks Hockey Club in the First Round. We will never know how the Second Round series would have gone against the Boston Jr. Rangers, but Wiemer and the Wizards undoubtably had earned their chance at the top-ranked team in the league.
