WENATCHEE, Wash. – The Wenatchee Wild, proud members of the British Columbia Hockey League, have announced that Gage Mackie has committed, as the team prepares for its first season in the BCHL.
Mackie is an 18-year old, left-handed shooter from Anchorage, Alaska, who played last season Shattuck St. Mary’s. In 40 games last season, the 6’3, 205lb forward had 5 goals and 20 assists. Mackie is committed to attend Arizona State University.
“Gage is a big kid that skates well.” says Wenatchee Wild Head Coach/General Manager Bliss Littler. “He has a nose for the net. From the top of the circles down Gage is very dangerous.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to get to Wenatchee and get the season started.” said Mackie. “From all the great things I’ve heard about the fans, Coach Littler and the Wenatchee community as a whole, I don’t think there is a better place to play junior hockey.”
The Wenatchee Wild opens the BCHL regular season with a pair of games at the Prince George Spruce Kings on September 11th and 12th. The home opener will be on October 10th against the Coquitlam Express. Season tickets for all 28 home games are available at the Wild office in the Town Toyota Center, or by calling 509-888-7825.
