St. Cloud, MN – The St. Cloud State University Huskies received a commitment from an athletic, speedy, two-way defender as Thief River Falls native Evan Bushy announced his commitment to the Huskies via Twitter on August 20. He announced “Honored and excited to announce my commitment to play college hockey at St. Cloud State University! Thanks to all who have helped !” And, oh by the way, he just happens to be the brother of incoming first-year SCSU  defenseman, Brendan Bushy. The sixteen year-old (2002 birth date) 6’0″ 180 pound left shooting defenseman, led his Thief River Falls High School squad to the  Section 8 championship and the Class A Minnesota State High School Tournament in 2018.

Bushy finished the 2017-18 season (including playoffs) with 11 goals and 22 assists for 33 points in 31 games. This included 6 power play goals and 2 points in 3 state tournament games. Bushy was also a draft choice of the Sioux Falls Stampede in the 2018 USHL Futures Draft.  He will return to lead his TRF Prowler squad as a Junior into the 2018-19 season. 

Neutral Zone, a prominent scouting service noted ” (Bushy) has size, speed and agility on the blue line. He is alert and aware in his own end, has a good stick and moves the puck quickly. He looked very athletic and is a younger player with tons of up-side. He has a whole bunch of tools and is a player to watch”.

Obviously, the opportunity to play collegiate hockey with his brother Brendan was one of the keys to his commitment to St. Cloud. He told me ” Brendan and I have always been close and to have a chance to be a teammate with him is very special.” He further stated “The big thing I like about St. Cloud was the culture, the coaching staff, the facilities and the community. The chance to play with my brother was hard to pass up.” On his style of play Bushy noted ” I’m a two-way defenseman who is very active on both ends of the ice and can play in any situation.”

Bushy joins an already solid group of commitments on the blue line including Brady Ziemer, Valtteri Pirronen, Christian Miller, Jack Peart and John Opilka. A complete list of SCSU recruits is HERE
