Tampa Bay Juniors Premier Forward Curtis Hansen Commits to Bethel University
By TBJ Staff
The Tampa Bay Juniors Hockey Club is proud to announce that Premier forward Curtis Hansen has officially committed to Bethel University for the 2018-19 season. Bethel is located in St. Paul, MN and plays in the MIAC.
Hansen, a Prior Lake, MN native, has played two seasons for TBJ. In 2016-17 he played 41 games tallying 55 points. This past season Hansen also played in 41 games netting 47 points despite missing 10 games due to an injury.
“Curtis has been a top player for us the last two years,” said Head Coach Garrett Strot. “Bethel is getting a skilled player who works hard both on and off the ice. He definitely will add some scoring to their lineup.”
“Playing in Tampa the last two years has been the best years of my life,” said Hansen. “If I was a high school player looking for a place to play juniors, I wouldn’t think twice about going and playing for TBJ. They have some of the best facilities in all of junior hockey and who doesn’t want to go to the rink in shorts and flip flops every day!”
“It will be fun to watch his college career,” added Strot, “I played college with his dad at Bethel so to see him go there was awesome!”
The coaches and staff with TBJ all wish Curtis and his family the best of luck as he continues his hockey career.
Curtis is the 7th Tampa player to commit to a college this year, and the second one to commit to Bethel, joining Jory McWilliams.
