IceDiggers deal Timar to Wenatchee

The Wenatchee Wild acquired forward Ryan Timar from Alpena on Tuesday for future considerations.

Timar, 5-foot-10 and 183 pounds, was Alpena’s leading scorer. He scored 15 goals and 14 assists (29 points) in 35 games with the IceDiggers this season and scored 11 goals and 26 assists (37 points) in 53 games with Alpena last season.

“We are excited to have Ryan coming to our team,” said Wild associate head coach Ryan McKelvie. “He is a very gifted player that plays hard every night. Even more importantly, he is a high character person that will be a great addition to our locker room.”

Timar, a 20-year-old from Novi, becomes the fourth Wild player that is committed to play for the Air Force Academy next season, joining new teammates Adam McKenzie, Alex McLean and Mitch Torrel. Timar comes to the Wild riding a six-game point streak in which he has scored five goals and five assists.
