The Kenai River Brown Bears have announced that forward Doug Beck has committed to Canisius College (Atlantic Hockey) for next season.
Beck, a 20-year-old from Plymouth, Mich., ranks eighth in NAHL scoring this season with 23 goals for 49 points through 42 games.
“Doug’s been loyal, stuck with, and bought into what we’ve asked of him,” said Brown Bears head coach Oliver David. “I’m ecstatic for him that he’s earned the opportunity to play Division I hockey for Canisius.”
Beck is the first player who competed in the season’s first North American Hockey League (NAHL) Top Prospects Tournament, which was held in Massachusetts in December, to commit to a Division I school following the event.
