Wildcats Add Defensive Defensemen, Kurt Reger!

The Wildcats have already added the second commitment to their 2020/21 recruiting class with the addition of defensive defensemen, Kurt Reger.

Standing 6’1”, 190-pounds, Reger comes from San Jose, California and played last season with the Utica Jr. Comets of the USPHL Premier League.

“I picked the U of A for several reasons,” said Kurt Reger. ”The campus environment and overall academics was what I was looking for, especially with the highly rated business program (Eller College of Management) and I wanted to play for top -ranked ACHA team that has the ability to compete with NCAA DIII caliber of play. Also, Tucson is really close to my home in California. I can’t wait to start my college career, I can’t think of a better school for me than the U of A.”

Reger is a defensive defensemen who plays a real steady game with reliable gaps, battles hard in front of the net and has a very active stick.

“We are excited to add a very reliable player on the back end,” said coach Berman. “He already excels at the things we stress with our defensemen - constantly gaping up while having a stick on pucks, taking away time and space. He is someone that brings a real steady game and can be used in a variety of ways, whether it be as a matchup defensemen or a complimentary piece to one of our more active defensemen. "

"To be honest, the best way to describe him is he’s like an older version of Hege (Wildcat Defensemen, #3 Chris Hedgecoke) and we were really happy with what  Hedge brought this year. I have already been joking with him that he has an older brother he never knew he had coming next year.”
