Humboldt Broncos’ Captain, Kade Olsen has announced his commitment to Arizona State University and will join the Sun Devil’s ACHA DIV 1 program for the 2022/23 season.
Olsen, a 4+ year Broncos’ veteran, finishes his SJHL career with 41 points (6g, 35a) and 233 penalty minutes in 161 regular season games played, adding an additional 3 points in 19 playoff games.
The Saskatoon native culminated his Broncos tenure by being named the captain in his final year, leading the Broncos to their first Divisional title since 2012/13.
“We are extremely excited to see this commitment for Kade as he’s been a key contributor for the Broncos both on and off the ice over his whole career,” said Broncos Head Coach and GM, Scott Barney. “Character, determination, leadership, accountability, and skill are only a few of many traits that best depict Kade as a human and a hockey player. He will be greatly missed but has shaped the culture of what a Bronco should be and will continue to be for years to come.”
ASU is located in Tempe, Arizona. Olsen will join the ASU Sun Devils in their Division I program of the ACHA (American Collegiate Hockey Association). The Sun Devils split their time between the ASU Multi-Purpose Arena and the Oceanside Ice Arena.
“I loved being in Humboldt the last four years. It was a great experience being part of such an amazing organization and community,” said Olsen. “I was lucky to meet many new friends that ill have forever. Humboldt will always be my second home and I can’t thank the organization enough for helping me get to where I am today. Now I’m super excited to move on to ASU to study Mechanical Engineering and play the game I love.”
Olsen’s commitment marks the 10th post secondary commitment for the Humboldt Broncos from their 2021/22 team.
The Humboldt Broncos and the City of Humboldt would like to thank Kade for everything he has done and accomplished during his time here and wish nothing but the best as he continues his hockey career and academic pursuits.
