As one of the Veteran players returning from Mason City last season, Connor Gaarder helped lead the Chill through their first season in Onalaska and on into their first playoff run. Scoring 24 goals and 37 assists to put him tied for 16th in the NAHL with 61 points and three NAHL player of the week nods.
UND had been looking to fill a slot on their roster left vacant recently. Discussions ended this week as Connor has committed to be one of 14 forwards for the Fighting Sioux this season.
Congratulations and good luck during the next seasons.
