Wenatchee has signed 6’1”, 174lb forward Landon Parker from East Grand Forks, Minnesota. During his time in East Grand Forks, he was part of the East Grand Forks High School Hockey program.
“Landon comes to us from the storied East Grand Forks High School program, where he played for Coach Tyler Palmiscno. Landon had a very successful career at EGF and has had a taste of Junior hockey each of the past 2 seasons after his high school season ended. Landon has scored goals consistently over the past 4 years, while being a valuable part of his team’s chemistry and leadership for Coach Palmiscno,” Mendelson said. “His versatility will be a key for us as he can play wing and center. The 2020-21 recipient of the Herb Brooks Leadership Award for Minnesota High School Hockey, we believe Landon will become a highly recruited player by NCAA teams.”
Parker has played a handful of junior hockey games over the last few years with the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL and the NAHL’s Minnesota Wilderness. During his time at Wenatchee’s camp this summer, he made sure to leave a good impression. “Landon is a big body who has knack for scoring goals everywhere he has been. Landon is also very competitive and likes to get in on the forecheck. He is able to play both Center and the Wing and also has some junior hockey experience. While Landon was in Wenatchee it was also very clear he is a mature kid with a ton of leadership qualities. We are very excited that Landon chose to come to Wenatchee and look forward to working with Landon as he works towards a scholarship of his own,” Clark said. With the right staff in Wenatchee and the numbers he put up in high school, Parker has the potential to breakout sooner rather than later.
