Amarillo forward Vidrick makes NCAA commitment
The Amarillo Wranglers of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Anthony Vidrick has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
Vidrick, 21, spent his final season of junior hockey playing in the NAHL for the Wranglers. The 5’10/174 lbs. native of Powell, OH, recorded almost a point per game during his time with the Wranglers in the 2021-22 season.
In 18 games played, Vidrick recorded 17 points, which included 4 goals and 13 assists. His first NAHL goal came in his first NAHL game at the NAHL Showcase on September 18th, which was a 4-3 win over the Northeast Generals.
“I’m proud to announce that I’m committing to The University of Wisconsin River falls to continue my hockey and academic career. I would like to thank every coach that has ever helped me along the way and to all my family members and friends that have stuck by my side through it all,” said Vidrick.
Prior to playing junior hockey, Vidrick spent the majority of his youth hockey career playing for the Ohio Blue Jackets AAA organization.
UW-River Falls, which is located 30 minutes from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, plays in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) and are 19-time WIAC Champions. The three-time NCAA National Champions play their home games out of the brand new 65-million-dollar W.H. Hunt Arena, located directly on campus.
