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 August Von Ungern-Sternberg to the team for his second season.
Von Ungern-Sternberg is an 18 year old, left-handed shooting forward, hailing from Eagle, Idaho. He’s 5’10” and weighs 168 lbs. Last season with the Wild, Von Ungern-Sternberg scored 10 goals, 7 assists and added 17 penalty minutes in 28 games. In last season’s playoffs, Von Ungern-Sternberg had 2 goals, 2 assists and 4 penalty minutes. He also saw time with Lincoln in the USHL last season. He is a recruit of NCAA Division One Brown University and is expected to be there in the fall of 2016.
“August came a long ways last season” said Wenatchee Wild Head Coach/General Manager Bliss Littler. “With his foot speed and offensive ability, August is set up for a big year.”
Von Ungern-Sternberg is thrilled to be returning to Wenatchee. “I could not be happier coming back to Wenatchee” he said. “I had other opportunities but I could not pass up another year playing for Coaches Littler and Clark, the Wenatchee Wild organization and the best fans in junior hockey. I am both excited and optimistic about Wenatchee’s debut season in the BCHL.”
The Wild will be holding tryout camp July 16th-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.
