He recorded five assists with Aberdeen during the regular season and added an assist in the Wings’ playoff run.
During his time with New Ulm, Barry notched five goals and eleven assists in 17 games played, including two power play goals.
“I’m proud and honored to announce my commitment to continue my education and play Division III hockey at Concordia College,” he said. “I’d like to thank my parents, coaches and teammates who helped me along the way.”
“Concordia is getting a great human being and player in Bauer,” Wings head coach Steve Jennings said. “He’s absolutely a team-first player who will be great for them on and off the ice.”
