April 3, 2018
The Minnesota Wilderness of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Garrett Worth has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for the Arizona State University Sun Devils.
The 5’10/170 lbs. native of Duluth, Minnesota, recently re-joined the Wilderness after finishing his high school season for the Duluth East Greyhounds.
Worth had 47 goals and 24 assists in 31 games for Duluth East, including the postseason, in 2017-18. He also helped the Greyhounds reach the State AA Championship Game. Worth was also a Captain for Duluth East and was one of the finalists for the Mr. Hockey Award, which is presented to the top boy's player in the state.
Worth has played 8 games so far for the Wilderness in November and in March, tallying 6 goals and 2 assists for eight points.
“I’m very proud and honored to announce that I will be playing Division 1 college hockey at Arizona State University. After touring the campus and seeing what the brand new rink will look like, it was a no brainer for me. I’m really happy with my decision. I can’t thank the Minnesota Wilderness organization enough, as well as Duluth East High School,” said Worth.
“We are proud of Garrett for accomplishing one of his dreams in committing to play Division 1 Hockey. He is as natural of a goal-scorer as you will find in Junior Hockey. Arizona State is getting a great kid and great hockey player,” said Wilderness head coach Tim Madsen.
