22 Year old Brady Keeper, from the Pimicikamak Cree Nation in Manitoba, is headed to the National Hockey League.
Keeper, who played with the Opaskwayak Cree Nation Blizzard before going on to play for the University of Maine hockey team, signed a two-year contract with the Florida Panthers Monday Morning.
“Brady is a promising puck-moving defenceman who possesses strong offensive instincts and plays a physical game,” said Panthers general manager Dale Tallon in a press release.
The six-foot-two, 194-pound player totalled 44 points in 73 games across his collegiate career.
