Jr. K-Wings get Hervey from USHL

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced the trade of forward Chad McDonald to the USHL’s Des Moines Buccaneers for Austin Hervey.

A forward from Brighton, Hervey started his junior career with the US NTDP in 2009-10. During that season, he played in eleven games. Hervey won back-to-back state championships in high school with Novi Catholic Central High School.

From there, he moved to the Lincoln Stars where he played in 44 games, registering four goals and three assists.

Hervey started this season with the Buccaneers. He played five games for the Bucs, scoring once.

Hervey will join the Jr. K-Wings for their three-game set against the Jamestown Ironmen this weekend. He is set to wear number 28 for Kalamazoo.

“Hervey brings additional junior experience to our team,” said Kalamazoo coach Marc Fakler. “He will be a physical power forward and be a presence in our lineup. He has a strong work ethic, a heavy shot and his size and strength will be an asset to our team.”

Hervey is committed to play at Western Michigan University next season.
