The Kenai River Brown Bears have announced that defenseman Jake Musselman has committed to the Air Force Academy (Atlantic Hockey) for next season.
Musselman, a 20-year-old from Littleton, Colo., tallied a goal and nine assists in 36 regular-season games this past season.
“Jake has always shown exceptional skating ability,” said Brown Bears head coach Oliver David. “His ultra-competitiveness, coupled with his puck retrieval skills, is second to none and he’ll have the opportunity to play hockey for a premier program in Air Force because of those attributes.”
Musselman is the 13th player to skate in the NAHL in 2009-10 to commit to Air Force.
“It's a great time for us at Kenai River,” added David. “We’re extremely proud to have had Jake play for our club and leave our community on such a high note.”
A number of 20-year-old Brown Bears have also made commitments to Division III programs: forward Brad Fusaro (St. Mary's University, MIAC); defenseman Braden Kinnebrew (Castelton State College, ECAC East); goaltender Mike Martin (St. Norbert College, NCHA); and forward Ryan Townsend (Gustavus Adolphus College, MIAC).
