Wrenn Leaves Denver for WHL


Denver sophomore defenseman William Wrenn has left the University of Denver and is expected to sign with Portland of the WHL tonight.

The quotes from Denver head coach George Gwozdecky make it sound like Wrenn was looking for a fresh start. He was a pretty regular fixture on DU's third defensive pairing this season, but had a team-worst -8 +/- to go along with only one assist.

Wrenn made a huge jump up draft boards two years ago with an impressive performance at the World U18 championships and ended up being selected in the 2nd round of the 2009 NHL Draft by San Jose, but never really continued the offensive success he showed in that tournament.
