Roseau star forward Noah Urness will be heading to the BCHL to play the 2023-24 season with the Cranbrook Bucks, the team announced on Thursday.
Noah scored 84 points in 28 games as a junior captain last season for the Rams, leading the team in scoring. His 84 points was good for eighth overall in the state and was the top scorer at the Class AA level. Noah’s 45 goals were second in all Minnesota High School Hockey. Urness wraps up his high school career with 163 points (75g, 88a) in 76 games over 3 seasons.
Urness, who was on a shortlist of potential candidates for Mr. Hockey this season, will now showcase his dynamic offensive ability north of the border. Bucks fans will be treated to a gifted player that can generate his own scoring opportunities and possesses a shot that is accurate and with a deceptive release. His vision on the ice makes him a threat as he can gain space and use his teammates at an elite level.
These skills and an impressive hockey resume have led Urness to be one of the top uncommitted 2005 players in Minnesota and a candidate to get selected in the 2024 NHL Draft. Good luck to Noah in Cranbrook.
