The Razorback Hockey team is pleased to announce that F-Brendan Bomay has committed to Arkansas. The 6’ 185 lbs. right-shooting forward recently completed his junior league career playing for the Potomac Patriots in the USPHL Premier.
Bomay, a Big Rapids, Michigan, native, joins the Razorbacks after captaining the Potomac Patriots. In his first full season in Potomac, Bomay contributed 23 total points (13 goals and 10 assists) in 35 games. Bomay played for the Thief River Falls Norskies and Minnesota Iron Rangers in the SIJHL for the 2017-18 season.
Bomay, who plans to study biomedical engineering, commented, “I’ve been playing hockey since I was about 5 years old in a town that lives and breathes hockey. I was also born the night the Detroit Red Wings won the cup in 1998. I was named after Brendan Shanahan, so I guess you could say I was born into it.” Regarding his commitment to the University of Arkansas more specifically, Bomay said, “The minute I stepped on campus it felt like home. I love the people I met and just loved the culture that surrounds the area. It made me feel like I was a part of a family.”
“Brendan is a solid, strong two-way center that can play both ends of the ice,” said Associate Head Coach Andrew Falls. “Brendan brings a great defensive game with the added ability to produce offense, as well as crucial leadership qualities and we are excited to have him in Arkansas this year.”
The University of Arkansas Men’s Hockey team plays in the Southeastern Collegiate Hockey Conference. The 2019-20 season will be the team’s thirteenth season as a member of the ACHA competing in Division III. The team’s schedule can be found here.
