So far during the 2022-23 season, Drotts has impressed during his rookie campaign, recording 12 points (7 goals, 5 assists) in the first 14 games of the season for the 1st place Brown Bears. His 12 points ranks tied for 2nd in team scoring as does his seven goals.

“I am extremely proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey and further my education at Augustana University. I’d like to thank my Parents, Teammates, Coaches and everyone who has helped me along the way. Go Vikings!,” said Drotts.

Prior to playing in the NAHL, Drotts played high school hockey in Minnesota for Grand Rapids High. As a senior forward last season, Drotts was second on the team in goals with 23 adding 25 assists. He helped Grand Rapids to a 20-7-1 record and section title appearance.
