April 6, 2016
The Minnesota Magicians, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are excited to announce that forward Casey Jerry has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Canisius College of the Atlantic Hockey Association (AHA).
Jerry, 21, who is from River Falls, Wisconsin, has been the Magicians’ most productive offensive player this season. In 56 games played, he has registered 16 goals to go along with team highs of 30 assists and 46 points.
Jerry (6’2/190) also competed at this year’s NAHL Top Prospect’s event as a member of the Central Division squad, picking up 6 shots and a +3 rating during the two-day tournament.
“We are very proud of Casey and the Division I opportunity he has earned with Canisius. His passion for the game, work ethic, and character make him the person and player he is,” said Magicians Head Coach and General Manager Scott Meyer.
Jerry was drafted by the Magicians in the first round (#4 overall) of the 2015 NAHL Entry Draft after playing the previous two seasons for the Cedar Rapids Roughriders. Prior to his junior career, he played high school hockey at River Falls High School in Wisconsin. He will enroll at Canisius in the fall of 2016.
