The Wenatchee Wild has announced that defenseman Evan Mosey has committed to Minnesota State University, Mankato (WCHA) for the upcoming fall.
The Downer’s Grove, Ill., native spent the majority of the regular season as a forward where he registered 11 goals and 11 assists for 22 points in 57 games.
In the postseason, Mosey, 20, was moved back to defense where he led all NAHL defensemen in scoring with 10 points on two goals and eight assists in 13 games.
“MSU-Mankato is getting an excellent hockey player and person,” said Wild head coach Paul Baxter. “Evan was one of our fastest players and hardest-hitting players all season. It’s exciting to see him get the opportunity to live his dream and play in the WCHA.”
MSU-Mankato plans to play Mosey as a defenseman.
Mosey is the seventh Wild player to commit to a Division I school, joining Mac Carruth (University of Minnesota Duluth), Adam McKenzie (Air Force Academy), Mitch Torrel (Air Force), Duncan McKellar (Bemidji State University), Mathieu Dugas (Bemidji State) and Nic Dowd (St. Cloud State University).
