Grand Forks Border Bruins captain Ray Warrack has committed to play for the University of Jamestown Jimmies beginning in the 2024-25 season.
Warrack is enjoying a career season with 12 goals, 25 assists for 37 points – all new single season career highs. The Strathmore, Alta. product felt joining the Jimmies was a good fit after meeting Head Coach Dean Stork, who contacted him in the summer.
“There are lots of KIJHL alumni players there and past guys loved it and it felt like the right spot for me,” said Warrack. “North Dakota is a great spot to play college hockey and get a university degree. I’m super excited.”
Over his three seasons with the Border Bruins, Warrack grew in his physical play to prepare for older and stronger opposition.
“Playing here has got me ready for that level,” said Warrack. “I gained muscle and strength and learned to hold my ground in the corners.”
“Ray has truly earned this opportunity for himself and I am extremely proud of his commitment not only to his development, but his dedication to the Bruins on and off the ice,” said Border Bruins Head Coach-GM David Hnatiuk. “Ray has been a positive role model in our community, a leader on and off the ice and the Jimmies have a great young man heading their way.”
