Kenai River Brown Bears forward Sebastian Fuchs, 17, has verbally committed to the University of Denver.
“Denver hockeywise and collegewise sounded perfect,” Fuchs said.
Fuchs’ commitment, announced Monday, stands out for the Bears organization due to Fuchs’ age and the pedigree of the Pioneers’ program.
Fuchs becomes the youngest Brown Bears player to commit to a Division I program. Last season, Albin Karlsson, who like Fuchs is from the Stockholm area in Sweden, committed to Niagara University at the age of 18.
