Colorado College rising freshman goalie Chase Perry has left Colorado College and will return to play for the Wenatchee Wild in the BCHL next season.
Perry played for the Wild two years ago--when the Wild were still members of the NAHL--and had a standout season. He earned a scholarship to Colorado College and was a fifth round draft choice of the Detroit Red Wings in the 2014 NHL Draft.
But Perry struggled in his freshman season with the Tigers, though it was somewhat understandable with Perry being the youngest goalie to play college hockey last season and playing for a Colorado College team that finished in last place in the NCHC, 17 points behind the next worst team in the league. Perry started 10 games for the Tigers and appeared in five others, posting a 1-8-1 record with a 3.97 GAA and .876 save percentage.
The Tigers will return junior Tyler Marble, who saw the majority of playing time last season, in goal, and will bring in incoming freshman Jacob Nehama from the USHL.
Perry will play in the BCHL next season then likely commit to another college, where he will have three years of eligibility remaining.
