Graduating Notre Dame Hounds defenseman Nick Rein (Calgary AB) has committed to New England College (NCAA Div III) in New Hampshire.
With New England, Rein is reunited with former Kindersley assistant Clayton Jardine. Rein was a Klipper in 2015-16 and the first part of 2016-17, where he compiled 9-assists in 63-games.
It was with the Notre Dame Hounds where Rein realized his offensive game, scoring 8-goals and 15-assists in 36-games; with most of that production coming after January 10th.
Meanwhile, Hounds forward Brandon Sookro has committed to Selkirk College (Castlegar BC) of the BCIHL. The Saints recently came up short in their bid for a fifth straight league title.
Sookro had 8-goals and 12-assists in 35-games with the Hounds following a 2 ½ season career with Yorkton, where he compiled 46-goals and 22-assists in 122-career games.
