UND has picked up a commitment from Saskatchewan-born forward Coltyn Sanderson, who finished fourth in points in the SJHL last season with 81 in 57 games.
Sanderson will come to UND this fall.
Sanderson is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds and is from Moose Jaw. He just completed his second full season with the Weyburn Red Wings, where he was the captain of the team.
“He’s one of the best captains we’ve had here and I’ve been here 38 years,” Weyburn coach Dwight McMillan said. “He’s a hard-working, young man. He never quits, no matter what the score is. He plays injured. He has great speed and he has the ability to make plays.”
McMillan described Sanderson as a skilled forward.
“I think he’ll be a top college player,” McMillan said. “He has to go there and fit into North Dakota’s systems and plans and I know he will. He’s a willing learner, easy to coach. I’m sure he will progress very quickly there.”
