Former Brown Bears move on

Posted: Wednesday, June 02, 2010

Former Kenai River Brown Bears defenseman, Jared Beers, will play for NCAA Division I Notre Dame next year. Beers skated with Kenai River during the 2008-09 campaign. Last season, Beers played for the Cedar Rapids Rough Riders in the United States Hockey League.

"Jared epitomized the type of player our program strives to recruit and develop. He is a true student athlete and we are very proud to have called him one of our own," Brown Bears General Manager Nate Kiel said in a written statement on Sunday.

Former team captain Johan Skinnars will play professional hockey in Norway next season. Skinnars led the Brown Bears with 39 points in 28 games played during the 2009-10 regular season.
