T1EHL and the Nashville Jr. Predators are proud to announce that former player Michael Reed has signed with the Aberdeen Wings of the NAHL.
In his time with the U18 Jr. Predators, he scored nine points in 16 league games. Reed made his debut with the Wings this past weekend, helping the team get two wins over the Minnesota Wilderness.
"I’m very happy for Mike and proud of him. He’s a humble kid who comes to the rink every day and works his butt off. He’s a great competitor and raised the level of our team for the last two seasons,” said Head Coach Steve Jennings. "This is a great opportunity for Mike and although it hurts our team to lose him, it’s the right thing for him and his development to move up and start his Junior career now."
As for the Jr. Predators losing one of their assistant captains for the remainder of the season, Coach Jennings said, "Losing our top scorer and a key penalty killer and power play guy changes the dynamic of our team, but it also allows other members of our team to step up and fill the gap, again helping development for them as well.”
Congratulations to Reed and all of our other current and former players who continue to rise in the ranks of hockey. Where can you go from here? Everywhere.
