FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WILD ADD DEFENSEMAN TO 2018-19 ROSTER
The Wenatchee Wild are five days away from competing in the Royal Bank Cup Tournament for the National Championship, but they already have an eye on building for next season. To that end, the Wild are pleased to announce they have acquired defenseman Brandon Koch, formerly of the Coulee Region Chill (NAHL). He will join the team to begin the 2018-19 BCHL season.
Koch, who checks in at 5’11” and 176 lbs. is a native of Hastings, MN and played two years of midget prep hockey at the prestigious Shattuck – St. Mary’s program before joining the Coulee Region Chill last season where he collected 44 points in 59 games, second most on his team. A very offensive-minded defenseman who is committed to play Division I college hockey for the Air Force Academy, Koch is thrilled to be headed to Wenatchee. “I look forward to finishing my junior career in Wenatchee in the BCHL, and I can’t wait to get started”, he said. Wild Head Coach / GM Bliss Littler is excited about Koch’s impending arrival. ““We feel he is a very dynamic and offensive d-man who should fit in to our style of play very well.”
This year’s BCHL Champion Wenatchee Wild team is set to compete in the Royal Bank Cup beginning on Saturday, May 12 in Chilliwack, BC. For information and game times, visit the team’s official website or call 509-888-7825.
