UMD gets commitment from 16-year-old 'elite' hockey prospect


Jarod Hilderman, a right-shot defenseman from Kamsack, Saskatchewan, has committed to Minnesota-Duluth for the fall of 2016.

Hilderman played bantam and midget hockey in his native province, but is moving to British Columbia this year to play for the Penticton Vees in the BCHL, according to the Wester College Hockey blog.

Hilderman played Midget AA hockey last season in Wilcox, Saskatchewan, scoring 10 goals and registering 20 assists in 31 games for Notre Dame, the Duluth News Tribune reports. He’s two games into his first season with the Vees, who have a history of sending players to UMD such as Brett Hull, T.J. Caig and current defenseman Derik Johnson.

The Island News reports that Hilderman says UMD is a perfect fit for his family, “I’ve been following Duluth for quite some time and was one of a handful of schools I had a lot of interest in. Most importantly I have family nearby and they will be able to closely follow the team when I enter the program in three years.”
