Colorado defenseman Burke makes NCAA DI Commitment

February 23, 2024

The Colorado Grit of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are proud to announce that defenseman Bowen Burke has announced his commitment to play NCAA Division I hockey for Union College in the ECAC. 

“I am proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at Union College. I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, coaches and advisors who have helped me along the way. Excited for what the future holds!” said Burke.

Burke, 19, is playing his first season in the NAHL and first in junior hockey. The Scottsdale, Arizona native leads all blueliners on the Grit roster in offensive production, tallying 41 points (7 goals, 12 assists) in 41 games this season. Those 19 points also place him second overall on the Grit roster. So far this year, he has recorded four multi-point performances, highlighted by his three-point night against the Corpus Christi IceRays on November 24th. 

Burke was recently selected to participate in the 2024 Top Prospects Tournament, where he represented Selects Silver alongside his teammates Wilder Jacober and Payton Miller. He tallied an assist on Silver’s 2nd goal against Selects Gold on February 5th. 

Prior to playing in the NAHL, Burke spent three seasons developing his game with the Shattuck St. Mary’s program. Before that he also played youth hockey for the Pheonix Jr. Coyotes. 

Burke is the 3rd player from the Grit roster to commit to playing Division I hockey. He will join four other current NAHLers to play under Josh Hauge at Union College.
