Jr. Coyotes grad, Scottsdale native Burke commits to NCAA Division I Union


The NAHL’s Colorado Grit has announced that defenseman Bowen Burke has announced his commitment to play NCAA Division I hockey for Union College (ECAC Hockey).

“I am proud and honored to announce my commitment to play Division 1 hockey at Union College. I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, coaches and advisors who have helped me along the way. Excited for what the future holds,” said Burke.

Burke, 19, is playing his first season in the NAHL and first in junior hockey. The Scottsdale native leads all blueliners on the Grit roster in offensive production, tallying 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) in 41 games this season. Those 19 points also place him second overall on the Grit roster. So far this year, he has recorded four multi-point performances, highlighted by his three-point night against the Corpus Christi IceRays on Nov. 24.

Burke was recently selected to participate in the 2024 Top Prospects Tournament, where he represented Selects Silver alongside his teammates Wilder Jacober and Payton Miller. He tallied an assist on Silver’s second goal against Selects Gold on Feb. 5.

Prior to playing in the NAHL, Burke spent three seasons developing his game with the Shattuck-St. Mary’s program and also played youth hockey for the Jr. Coyotes.
