Durdle, who played two seasons with the Wolverines, was a solid defenceman, who recorded 45 points (13-32) in 84 games. He also played briefly for Portage and Virden. Durdle joins a pair of MJHL alumni playing at Northland: Kurt Sonne (Winkler Flyers) and Ty Kraus (Selkirk Steelers).
“Heading into this off-season we had to address the losses incurred to graduation on our blue-line and we kept coming back to Cody,” said Northland Head Coach Seamus Gregory. “He’s big, strong, can jump in the rush and shut down when called upon.
“In our facility we feel he will be a presence and another piece we need to continue to move forward. He is a very dedicated player and fantastic person, his family too was unbelievable to work with from the start of the process. We are excited about this commitment, he will be a very solid member of our college community”.
Northland College is an NCAA Division III institution located in Ashland, Wisconsin. The LumberJacks and LumberJills sponsor 15 varsity sports and compete in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference and the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.
