It’s impossible to not notice center Brett Chorske on the ice. He casts a long shadow at 6’6” but it’s his play that makes him an eyesore to the opposition.
Raised in the Twin Cities suburb of Edina, MN, Chorske has become a key part of his local high school varsity team at Edina High School, averaging better than a point per game last year through the regular season and the playoffs.
There’s usually a bit of a transition period as players move from high school to juniors, but Wild Associate Head Coach Leigh Mendelson sees Chorske as ready for the challenge. “Brett adds size and skill to the team. He has a very good hockey IQ, makes smart plays with the puck, and has the ability to score.” Mendelson adds, “We expect Brett to acclimate himself to Junior hockey and make consistent contributions to the club at both ends of the rink.”
