MINOT, ND – The Minot State Hockey team is proud to announce the commitment of defenseman Wayde Johannesson from the Selkirk Steelers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

Head coach Wade Regier notes “Wayde is an extremely skilled puck moving defenseman. He is a gifted play making defender that almost feels like an extra forward on the ice at all times. He is extremely versatile and can play in every situation. His playoff experience is also a huge plus for us. Wayde complements our young defensive core and we look forward to him in our lineup on a nightly basis. .”

The Beaver Hockey program has been in existence at Minot State University since 1995. The team competes independently at the ACHA division 1 level and plays its home games at the MAYSA Arena in Minot, N.D. The Beavers are coached by Wade Regier and assisted by Wyatt Waselenchuk.
