The Wenatchee Wild has announced that defenseman Kyle Brodie has committed to Bemidji State University (CHA) for next season when the program joins the WCHA.
“Bemidji is a program that’s really headed in the right direction,” said Brodie. “It has a new rink, it’s entering a new league and it’s located in a great college town that rallies behind the team.”
Brodie, a 19-year-old from Northglenn, Colo., leads all NAHL defensemen in scoring through 29 games with 26 points on eight goals. He is also a plus-15.
“We’re excited to see Kyle fulfill one of his dreams of playing Division I hockey,” said Wild associate head coach Ryan McKelvie. “Kyle had a great summer and came to the team looking like a new player. He’s proof of what a person can accomplish with hard work and a good attitude.
“Bemidji is an excellent hockey program and I think it’s a very good fit for Kyle."
Brodie is the seventh player from this year’s Wild team to commit to a Division I program - the most of any team in the NAHL.
“Bemidji has established itself as a top contender in all of college hockey,” Brodie added. “I'm really excited to be a part of all their history and traditions.”
