Ladder of Development: Kyle Meeh is yet another example of a player going from the NA3HL to the NAHL to the NCAA.
The Springfield Jr. Blues, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that defenseman Kyle Meeh has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at St. Mary’s University. St. Mary’s is a member of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC).
Meeh, a St. Louis, Illinois native, is currently in his third season with Jr. Blues. He has 23 points on the season including seven goals. Meeh was named the NAHL Midwest Division Star of the Week for the week of February 8th.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity,” said Meeh. “I have to give thanks to my teammates for helping me get this. It’s always nice to see your hard work, on and off the ice, pay off.”
Meeh, 20, is another great and successful ladder of development story. He began his junior hockey career in the NA3HL with the St. Louis Jr. Blues during the 2012-13 season. He played with the Jr. Blues during the 2013-14 season as well and totaled 65 points in 76 career NA3HL regular season games.
Meeh then went into the NAHL with Springfield, where he has played in 133 career NAHL games and recorded 47 career points. He also played in the 2015 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for the North Division team, where he had a goal in two games.
