For Anthony Kehrer – a University of Wisconsin commit – there couldn’t have been a better shaped program for his needs than RHA has provided the past two seasons.

“I have one sister who goes to University of Alabama at Birmingham for soccer, and my other sister is actually trying to get a scholarship there as well,” he said. “My dad spent some time with the University of Manitoba, the Norfolk Admirals and even played in Europe’s British Hockey League for a bit too. Coming from an athletic family, this program was exactly what I needed.”

Kehrer grew up in Winnipeg’s River Heights neighbourhood and began his hockey career much like any other local child. In playing Timbits, A1, AA and then AAA hockey, Kehrer worked his way up the ranks, and was noticed while playing with the Winnipeg Monarchs. He spent the last two years with RHA, racking up nine goals and 44 points in 52 games.

The future University of Wisconsin Badger is tremendously excited to be joining Sioux City.

“I am very excited to play in Sioux City next year, and to play in the USHL against some of the top American players,” Kehrer told Game On. “It will be great for my development and will help me take my game to the next level. The coaching staff and facility is top notch, and I cannot wait to get to work.”

Kehrer was also drafted by the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings and belongs to the Steinbach Pistons of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.
