Jr. Ducks, Santa Margarita alum Selänne decides on NCAA D-III Curry for next destination
Texas Brahmas forward Leevi Selänne has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at Curry College in Milton, Mass.
“I am extremely excited and honored to announce my commitment to play NCAA Division III hockey at Curry College,” said Selänne. “I will be joining my older brother Eetu for his final season, which will be an awesome experience. I could not have achieved this without my loving family, friends, coaches, and most importantly my teammates. I also want to thank all of the organizations I have played for and been a part of.
“Texas and the Texas Brahmas will always have a special place in my heart.”
Selanne, a 2000 birth year who played for the Anaheim Jr. Ducks and Santa Margarita Catholic High School, is a veteran for the NA3HL’s Brahmas, as well as an alternate captain, appearing in 67 games for the squad over two seasons. Selänne so far has accumulated 73 points (37 goals, 36 assists), with 12 in the past 10 games played.
The native of Coto De Caza is averaging a point per game during the 2020-21 season.
“The Texas Brahmas are extremely proud to be able to announce Leevi’s commitment to Curry College,” said Brahmas coach Ryan Anderson. “’Sels’ has been a crucial piece of our success in the past two seasons. He brings unbelievable energy and excitement to our locker room. On the ice, he has proven to be a consistent scoring threat with a physical edge as well. I look forward to watching Leevi continue to grow as a person and player at the collegiate level and wish him continued success.”
Curry plays in the Commonwealth Coast Conference.
