The Humboldt Broncos are proud to announce that defenseman Carsten Kayter has committed to Omaha-Nebraska, an NCAA Division I program.

The 16-year-old blueliner is in his rookie season with the Broncos and has already proven to be one of the top young players in the league just eight games into the year. Throughout the first eight games, Kayter has collected seven points (1g,6a). He’s currently first in SJHL scoring among all rookie defensemen and tied for second among all rookie skaters.

This commitment marks the first for the Humboldt Broncos, as well as the first NCAA Div I commitment in the SJHL this season.

“Carsten has worked very hard for this commitment and the Broncos organization are very proud of his accomplishment,” said Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney. “We’re going to make sure that his
development continues to go in an upwards trend so he’s ready for college hockey.”

Prior to joining the Broncos, Kayter suited up for the Warman Wildcats U18 AAA where he picked up 25 points in 43 games. The Broncos then drafted Kayter in the 4 th round (47 th overall) of the 2022 SJHL Draft.

“This is an amazing opportunity for Carsten, and we are thrilled that he will go to a prestigious University in Omaha-Nebraska, who have moved many defensemen to the NHL level,” added Barney.

The Humboldt Broncos and the City of Humboldt would like to congratulate Carsten and his family on the amazing accomplishment.
