NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TEXAS — 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 regarding his commitment. “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.”
The skater is a veteran for the Brahmas, as well as an alternate captain, appearing in 67 games for the squad over two seasons. Selänne so far has accumulated 73 points (37g-36a), with 12 in the past ten games played. A native of Coto De Caza, Calif., the forward averages a point per game in the 2020-21 season.
“The Texas Brahmas are extremely proud to be able to announce Leevi’s commitment to Curry College,” said head coach of the Brahmas, 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.”
Selänne will be suiting up for Curry with his brother, veteran forward Eetu Selänne. Before the cancellation of the 2019-20 men’s hockey season, Curry recorded a record of 12-4-2 (W-L-OTL) and ranked third within their conference.
