Waywayseecappo Wolverines defencemen Eric Krywy has committed to play for the Minot State University Beavers in the American Collegiate Hockey Association.
The 20-year-old from Winnipeg, MB played for the Wolverines in the second half of the 2021-22 season after being acquired in a trade with the Selkirk Steelers. Krywy ended up playing 163 games in his entire MJHL career, scoring 14 goals and 48 assists. He was also Selkirk’s captain for the last two seasons before being traded to Waywayseecappo.
“It’s been a blast for the past four seasons,” said Krywy. “I can’t thank Selkirk and Waywayseecappo enough for giving me the chance to play junior hockey.”
Even though Eric only suited for 21 games in Waywayseecappo, he said he really enjoyed his time.
“I wish I had more time in Wayway obviously,” said Krywy. “Head Coach Taylor (Harnett) teached us all humility, and I wish I was there the entire season to hang out with the guys more, but it was my favourite year in junior hockey for sure.”
Krywy will be joining another Wolverine, Joey Moffatt, in Minot State, along with a former teammate back in Selkirk, Sheldin Howard.
“When you live that close to (Joey) in Rossburn, you hang out with him everyday,” said Eric.” He is one of my better buddies, and I’m happy to be joining him.”
Krywy says he will be taking exercise science at Minot State, but said the closeness to home, playing with former teammates and joining a winning hockey team were the main reasons for committing to the Beavers.
“It gives me a chance to win again, so it’s going to be a fun time.”
