Matt Kiersted Commits to North Dakota

North Dakota lands a talented young offensive defenseman

Matt Dewkett

Elk River High School sophomore defenseman Matt Kiersted announced via Twitter today that he has verbally committed to North Dakota:

Kiersted is a '98-born offensive defenseman that recently participated in the NTDP's Evaluation Camp.

Kiersted is a pure offensive defenseman with great puck skills and scoring instincts. He's got some room to development in the defensive end, but is one of the best in his age between the red line and the opposing net.  He scored 6 goals and 15 assists for 21 points in 24 regular season games with the Elks this season.

Kiersted is the second '98 to commit to North Dakota, joining Mitchell Mattson, who committed to UND earlier this week.
