Flyers’ Sonne headed to Northland College

Winkler Flyers’ graduate Kurt Sonne is headed to Northland College of the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.

Sonne finished fourth in club scoring this past season with nine goals and 47 points in 56 games. A native of Maple Ridge, B.C., Sonne (6-foot, 175-pounds) is expected to make an impact on the Northland lineup.

“We have been recruiting Kurt for quite some time,” said Seamus Gregory, Head Coach, Northland College, which is a Division 3 school located in Ashland, Wisconsin.

“Kurt is exactly the type of player but more importantly the type of person our young locker room needs right now. He’s had a tremendous year in Winkler and we feel the sky is limit for Kurt as he continues to improve as he gets a little older. He understands what it takes to win and coming from a storied franchise like Winkler we couldn’t be happier to have him at Northland for the foreseeable future.”
