MJHL grad Rhett Lough has committed to Minot State Beavers

Lough, who hails from Winnipeg, recorded 45 points (16-29) last season split between Wayway and the Winnipeg Blues. He began his MJHL career with Selkirk Steelers.

“Rhett is a very talented play making forward,” Minot Head Coach Wade Regier said in a statement. “He is a player who has had a tremendous career in the Manitoba Junior League. With the loss of important forwards to graduation, Rhett fills a big need up front in our lineup.

“It is often tough to ask a lot out of your freshman, but we fully expect Rhett to step in and make an impact as soon as he arrives in Minot. Rhett is also a very smart individual and look forward to adding him into our locker room next season.”

The MJHL was well represented on the Beavers’ roster last season with seven players: Craig Fournier (Wayway), Robby Moar (Neepawa), Sam Briscoe (Neepawa), Dylan Gejdos (Wayway), Johl Swedlo (Wayway), Carey Morrison (Selkirk) and goaltender Josh Bykowski (Portage).
