The Amarillo Bulls are proud to announce that Jere Vaisanen has committed to play D1 college hockey at Bemidji State University next fall.
“I am extremely proud and excited to announce my commitment to Bemidji State University,” Vaisanen said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to join such a great program.”
Vaisanen, who is from Espoo Finland, made his North American debut this season with the Amarillo Bulls and has a team leading 30 points in 34 games.
The top scoring forward has stepped up in a big way for the Bulls this year and has adjusted very quickly to the North American style of hockey.
“We are very excited to announce Jere’s commitment to Bemidji St! Jere has been an incredible piece to our teams success this season and gets better every game,” Head Coach Rocky Russo said. “He continues to score big goals for our team, and plays hard in all situations.”
Bemidji State University plays in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and is located in Bemidji, Minnesota.
“I have no doubt that he is going to be an impactful player for Coach Serratore and his staff.” Russo said.
Vaisanen joins eight of his current Bulls teammates to announce their college commitment to play D1 college hockey.
“I want to thank my family, teammates and coaches for making this possible.” Vaisanen said.
