The Kenai River Brown Bears of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that goaltender Bryant Marks has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for the University of Alaska-Anchorage, an Independent NCAA Division I program.
Marks, 18, is in his second season playing junior hockey in the NAHL. The 5’11/170 lbs. native of Wasilla, AK, has appeared in one game so far during the 2022-23 season where he made 25 saves in a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Rebels.
“I am proud to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at the University of Alaska Anchorage. I would like to thank all my family, friends, and coaches who have helped me along the way,” said Marks.
Last season, Marks appeared in 26 games for the Brown Bears and posted a 5-16-2 record with a 3.84 goals against average and a .889 save percentage.
“Bryant is a great teammate, fantastic human, and a goalie on the rise. He believed and trusted in the process, and it has paid off for him,” said Brown Bears head coach Taylor Shaw.
