Wenatchee, WA. -- The Wenatchee Wild, preparing for their first season as members of the British Columbia Hockey League, are pleased to announce the return of Brendan Harris for his third season with the team.
Harris, who is a 19 year old, left-handed shooting forward, hails from Las Vegas, Nevada and is 5’7” and 160 lbs. In two previous seasons with the Wild, Harris notched 21 goals, 40 assists and added 42 penalty minutes. In 15 career playoff games, Harris has 3 goals, 5 assists and 2 penalty minutes. He’s also seen time with Bismarck in the NAHL and Cedar Rapids in the USHL. Harris is committed to Division One St. Cloud State, where he will begin playing in 2016.
Wild Head Coach/General Manager Bliss Littler said “Brendan will return for his third season with us. Brendan is a dynamic offensive player for us that plays in all situations. We will look for leadership out of Brendan.”
Harris is excited to be returning to Wenatchee, saying “There is no place I’d rather play junior hockey. Best fans, best coaches and best arena. There’s no better feeling than putting on that jersey and running onto the ice with 3,000-plus fans going crazy.”
The Wild will be holding tryout camp July 16th-19th at The Community Rink at the Town Toyota Center, which will be free and open to the public. The regular season opens September 11th and 12th, with a pair of road games against the Prince George Spruce Kings. The team’s first home game at the Town Toyota Center will be Saturday, October 10th, against the Coquitlam Express. Season seats for all 28 home games are available through the Wild office, or by calling 509-888-7825.
