The Gillette Wild of the NA3HL are pleased to announce the college commitment for two players.
Goaltender Cody Grogan has committed to play ACHA Division I hockey for the University of Utah and goaltender Aaron LaChance has committed to play ACHA Division I hockey for Iowa State University.
Grogan, 20, just completed his second and final season of junior hockey, which has all been spent with the Wild. The 6’2/194 lbs. native of Wasilla, Alaska, posted a 10-7-0 record during the 2018-19 season, with a 3.04 goals against average and a .911 save percentage.
In two years of play with the Wild in the NA3HL, Grogan posted a 23-15-2 record with a 3.48 goals against average and a .908 save percentage.
"I am very happy for Cody. He is a true competitor in every sense of the word. He is of the "better to be seen, not heard" mentality. I cannot thank him enough for his years of service to our program and wish him all of the best as he enters the next chapter of his life playing extremely competitive college hockey,” said Wild Head Coach/GM Steve Kruk.
LaChance, 20, also just completed his second season in the NA3HL with the Wild. The 6’2/195 lbs. native of Wainwright, Alberta, posted a 6-7-2 record during the 2018-19 season, with a 3.77 goals against average and a .886 save percentage.
In two years with the Wild, LaChance posted a 10-13-2 record with a 4.21 goals against average with a .882 save percentage.
"I am extremely proud of Aaron. The kid is an absolute rink rat and loves the everyday grind. His work ethic is unmatched and he is such a genuine human being. Iowa State is gaining a great goaltender, but an even better person." - General Manager/Head Coach Steve Kruk
