SOLDOTNA, AK – The Brown Bears are proud to welcome defenseman Shayne Monahan to the organization. Shayne is a product of the prestigious Omaha AAA U18 program that has been a source for developing players ready for the transition to the NAHL. Coach David Wilkie states, "Shayne has been a tremendous player for Omaha AAA the last 2 seasons. He is an outstanding 2 way defenseman with very good puck skills and his best hockey is in front of him. We wish him the best in his junior career and we know that Kenai River is not only getting a very good player but an even better person off the ice."
