NAHL’s Ice Wolves sign Minnesota high school standout Keller to tender for ’21-22 season
The New Mexico Ice Wolves announced the team has signed forward Jake Keller to an NAHL tender agreement for the 2021-22 season.
Keller is a native of Swansea, Ill., and has spent the past two seasons playing at Wayzata High School in Plymouth, Minn.
Currently, Keller is second on his team in points with 26 (13 goals and 13 assists) in just 18 games.
“Jake is a player with a high hockey IQ and solid offensive skill set,” said Ice Wolves coach-GM Phil Fox. “He played well in the Minnesota High School Elite league last summer and that carried over into a great season with Wayzata High School in his senior year this season.”
Keller, whose older brother Clayton Keller plays forward for the Arizona Coyotes in the NHL, spent time in the NAHL during the 2019-20 season where he played 13 games with the Minnesota Magicians in the Midwest Division.
“I’m very excited to sign a tender with the New Mexico Ice Wolves and I’m eager to start this next chapter and progress my game to a new level,” Keller said.
Keller joins recently tendered forwards Sullivan Scholle, JD Metz and Brayden Ring in the team’s recruiting class for the 2021-22 season.
