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 Donovan Ott for his second season with the team.
Ott is 18 years old, stands 6’1” and tips the scales at 195 lbs. In 43 regular season games with the Wild last season, the Lebanon, Pennsylvania native had 3 goals, 4 assists and 29 penalty minutes. Ott garnered 1 assist in 5 playoff games.
According to Wenatchee Wild Head Coach/General Manager Bliss Littler, “Donovan is a power forward that really came on at the end of the season. Donovan has decommitted from Cornell University this spring and will have extra motivation to find another scholarship. I look for Donovan to have a big year.”
Ott is thrilled to return to the Wild, saying “I really look forward to returning to Wenatchee next season. Wenatchee is a wonderful community and everyone is supportive of the team with arguably the best fans in junior hockey.” On his first season with the Wild, Ott said “Last year was a great experience for me playing for such an incredible coaching staff. I look forward to continuing that next year with the guys from last year and the new ones coming in. The excitement to get back has been building for me since the team moved to the BCHL. It will be a wonderful opportunity for the players here now and the ones to come in the future.”
The Wild will be holding tryout camp today though the 19th in 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.
