Survivor of Humboldt tragedy commits to UAA

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Last year, the hockey world was shaken by the Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash.
Now, a little over a year later, one of the 13 survivors of that tragedy has committed to play Division One Hockey, and he'll be playing here in Alaska.​
Brayden Camrud announced his commitment yesterday to play for the UAA Seawolves. ​
Camrud was the second highest scorer for the broncos this season, who play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. ​
He earned 55 points with 27 goals and 28 assists in his final year of junior eligibility. ​
Brayden suffered a severe concussion during the crash and lost feeling in his neck and one of his arms, but said he's back to 100%. ​
The forward will now be joining the UAA Seawolves, who are members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.​
He will also be part of the rebuild for the Seawolves, who have finished last in the conference in each of the past three seasons.
