Former Terrier Harms wins Division 1 award

Portage Terriers’ alumni Brendan Harms was recently recognized as the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I men’s hockey and captured the 2017 Senior CLASS Award, which focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive difference as leaders in their communities.

Harms, who played two seasons with the Terriers, was a senior with Bemidji State Beavers, who are members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. In two seasons with the Terriers he scored 50 goals and recorded 120 points.

Harms, who hails from Steinbach, was a business administration major with a minor in human performance. This past season for the Beavers he recorded 21 points (8-13) in 21 games.

When his college eligibility ended, he signed a contract to play professionally with the Florida Everblades, ECHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes.
