Flyer’s Captain Wren earns scholarship to Nipissing University

Submitted by Winkler Flyers

Graduating Flyers Captain Patrice Wren has committed to the Nipissing University Lakers (CIS) for the 2015-2016 season. The Beachburg, Ontario native played just one season in Winkler and had a career year with 46 points in 60 regular season games.

After being picked up in a trade with the Pembroke Lumber Kings (CCHL) before the start of the 2014-2015 season, Wren helped guide the Flyers to their best regular season record in recent memory. Wren played in all 60 regular season games last season finishing with a career high 46 points (14 goals – 32 assists). He also added three points in three post season games.

“Patrice was a great captain for us this season” stated Flyers Head Coach and General Manager Ken Pearson. “He brought a winning attitude and work ethic and that really rubbed off on some of our younger guys. And that is exactly what you want in a captain.” Concluded Pearson.

The Nipissing University Lakers play in the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) which is the top ranked collegiate hockey league in Canada.

The Flyers would like to congratulate Patrice on his decision to continue his education and hockey career with the Lakers and wish him all the best in the future.
