The Brookings Blizzard are pleased to announce that Conner Spetz has made his NCAA Commitment. Spetz will play DIII hockey at the University of St. Thomas who are members of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC). Spetz finished among the top four defenseman in scoring for Brookings this past year with 12 points (2 goals, 10 assists). The St. Michael, MN native played two years for the Blizzard appearing in 103 games and finished his junior career with 20 points (4 goals, 16 assists). Spetz will join Blizzard teammate Kane Durment aboard the roster at St. Thomas.

“Connor filled many rolls for us as a 2nd year player. We played him in all situations, and if someone was struggling, we’d put them with Connor. He always got the player back on track he will be a hard player to replace. We wish him luck at St. Thomas.” – Dan Daikawa, Brookings Blizzard Head Coach

"I am very excited to be attending and playing hockey at the University of St. Thomas next year. I'd like to thank my coaches, parents, and teammates for helping me get this far!" – Connor Spetz
