Wenatchee to host college hockey game

June 14, 2011

The Wenatchee Wild has announced that Wenatchee will host its first-ever NCAA Division I hockey game at the Town Toyota Center on Saturday, Oct. 1.

The game will feature the Air Force Academy against Simon Fraser Clan of the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL).

The contest will be a homecoming for three members of Air Force: Adam McKenzie, Ryan Timar and Mitch Torrel, all of whom were part of the 2009-10 Wild team that competed in the Robertson Cup Championship Tournament.

McKenzie, a Petaluma, Calif., native, is coming off a brilliant freshman campaign with the Falcons. He scored 19 points (five goals) in 38 games - the most by any freshmen defensemen in the Atlantic Hockey Association. He was also named to Atlantic Hockey’s All-Rookie Team.

Timar and Torrel were also integral components of the Falcons team that won the Atlantic Hockey Association title and advanced to the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in the last five years (Air Force was knocked out of the tournament in the East Regional in a 2-1 overtime loss to Yale).

In March, Simon Fraser University captured its third BCIHL championship in the last four years.

The exhibition game between Air Force and Simon Fraser will begin at 5:35 p.m. local time.
