Two more former Weyburn Red Wings will continue their hockey career elsewhere next season. Carson Scheschuk and Ty Brown have both agreed to head down south for the 2019/2020 hockey season.
Fan favourite and graduated Red Wings captain Ty Brown has committed to playing for Northland College in the fall. The NCAA school is located in Ashland, Wisconsin and is also home to two other former Red Wings, in Cole Woodcliffe and Jacob Jeske.
"I'm excited to get things going with the Jacks. I've lived away from home before and getting to play with a couple of former Red Wings that go to Northland will make the transition pretty easy for me," Brown told Discover Weyburn.
Brown played well over 200 games for the Red Wings, the second most in team history, and will be a nice addition to the LumberJacks program.
Defenceman Carson Scheschuk will also be making the jump to college hockey. It was announced recently he'll join the Norwich University Cadets for the upcoming season. Scheschuk just finished his 19-year-old season and was eligible to return to the SJHL next year, but chose to get a headstart on school.
"It's a great feeling knowing that I can get an education while still getting the opportunity to play hockey," Scheschuk said. "It's a beautiful school and I know it won't take long for me to fit in and get in the swing of things. I am very excited for the fall and to be a Cadet."
Norwich University is located in Northfield, Vermont and is home to roughly 3,500 students. Last year, the Cadets played in the NCAA Division III National Championship game, coming up just short in a 3–2 overtime loss.
These announcements come on the heels of graduated Red Wing Drew Anderson signing a pro contract in Sweden.
Both are outstanding young men and will be assets to the programs they join.
