WILD SIGN BOSER
The Wenatchee Wild have signed defenseman Brasen Boser. During the 2019-20 season, he played for the Phoenix Jr. Coyotes 15U AAA team picking up four goals and six assists for ten points in 19 games. For the 2020-21 season he joined the Jr. Coyotes 16U AAA team collecting
two goals and five assists for seven points in 17 games. Head coach Chris Clark touched on the addition of Boser and working with him this season.
“Brasen is a player we got to watch a lot last year with the Phoenix Jr. Coyotes U16 team. He is a skilled offensive defenseman who loves to join the rush and create offense. We are excited to work with Brasen as he starts his junior hockey career in Wenatchee,” Clark said. Boser talked about his visit to Wenatchee for their spring development camp and what made him decide to commit to the Wild for this season. “I fell in love with the place, I really like the facilities, the coaches were good so when I came through main camp I had a good talk with the coaches and they said I had a good spot with the team, so I decided on Wenatchee,” Boser said. Boser also talked about what he’s looking forward to this season with the Wild. “Getting back to Wenatchee, I made quite a few buddies up there when I came for main camp so getting out there to see the boys again,” Boser said. “I’m just glad to be playing hockey, good to be back in a normal season again.
Director of Scouting Leigh Mendelson talked about Boser’s addition to the team. “Brasen is a player we are very familiar with as we’ve had the opportunity to watch him for the past 2 years with the Jr. Coyotes program. He is a highly competitive, mobile defenseman who likes to be involved at both ends of the rink. He has the drive and skill level to become a very good player in the BCHL, and strong NCAA defenseman in the future, we are very excited to have him playing in Wenatchee this year,” Mendelson said. Boser touched on what fans should expect from him out on the ice.
“I’m a good skating, puck moving defenseman, I like to get up on the rush, create offense and hopefully score a couple goals,” Boser said.
As Boser works towards a college commitment, fans should expect a good competitive player on ice and one who likes engaging with fans off ice.
