March 31, 2020
The Kenai River Brown Bears of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that defenseman Connor Scahill has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
Scahill, 21, just completed his third and final season playing in the NAHL, the majority of which was spent with the Brown Bears. The 6’0/187 lbs. native of Port Huron, Michigan, began the 2019-20 season in Odessa as captain of the Jackalopes. In 25 games with Odessa, Scahill recorded six points.
Over the course of the Christmas break, Scahill was traded back to Kenai River, where he had spent his first two seasons. In 13 games this season with the Brown Bears, Scahill posted five points, which gave him a season total of 11 points in 48 games played.
Scahill played both the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons in Kenai River. Overall in his three-year NAHL career, he appeared in 149 career games and posted 46 points.
“Connor is a great kid and has been a big part of Kenai’s improvement over the past 3 seasons. We’d like to thank Connor for his efforts here in Kenai and wish him continued success as he moves on to the next stage in his career,” said Brown Bears head coach Kevin Murdock.
