Jr. K-Wings' Brooks commits to UWSP

The Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings have announced that defenseman Alex Brooks has committed to play collegiate hockey at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Brooks posted eight points (three goals, five assists) and had a plus/minus rating of plus-8 in 21 games with the Jr. K-Wings.

Before coming to Kalamazoo, Brooks started the season with the Aberdeen Wings, where he notched 17 points (three goals, 14 points) in 35 games.

The native of Grand Rapids will join former Jr. K-Wing Drew Graves, who committed to UWSP earlier in the offseason.

Brooks is now the sixth Jr. K-Wing who has committed to play hockey at the college level, joining Austin Hervey (Western Michigan), Graves, Ken MacLean (Rochester Institute of Technology), Chad McDonald (Ferris State) and Brock Raffaele (Bethel University).
