The Minnesota Wilderness, proud members of the North American Hockey League, are pleased to announce that goaltender Chase Munroe has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Miami University, a member of the NCHC conference.
Munroe, becomes the fourth Wilderness goalie to commit to the Division I level in three seasons, joining Kasimir Kaskisuo (Minnesota-Duluth), Brock Kautz (Minnesota) and Ryan Anderson (North Dakota). Munroe also becomes the 20th Division I commit for the Wilderness in that same span of time.
“We are very excited for Chase to get this opportunity with a great program, like Miami,” said Head Coach Corey Millen. “He has put in hard work and dedication over his three years in NAHL and earned this opportunity with consistent play this season. We think he has a great future ahead of him and he will be able to continue to develop both athletically and academically at a great school.”
“It’s an honor to be able to be a part of such an amazing community, the school is everything I’ve dreamed of academically and athletically,” said Munroe about committing to Miami. He continued, “The relationship between everyone on the hockey team was astounding and I’m excited to take part in something so big!”
In 13 games this season, Chase has a 9-2-1 record with a 2.00 GAA and .923 Save Percentage. He was also named the Midwest Division Star of the Week back in September, following a great performance at the NAHL Showcase.
Before coming to the NAHL, Munroe played his last two seasons of youth hockey with former NAPHL members, the Indiana Jr. Ice.
