Wrenn bolts Denver for WHL’s Winterhawks
USCHO Staff Report • Monday, January 3, 2011
Denver sophomore defenseman William Wrenn has left the team and signed a contract with the Portland Winterhawks of the major junior Western Hockey League.
The 19-year-old Wrenn tallied one assist and a minus-7 plus/minus rating in 18 games this year for the Pioneers and finishes his DU career with eight assists in 41 games.
“William has decided to leave our varsity hockey program and concentrate full-time on his hockey career,” DU head coach George Gwozdecky said in a statement. “William feels he will have a better opportunity to play on a regular basis and contribute in a more important role at the junior hockey level. He was a good teammate and was well liked in our locker room. William will be missed by our program.”

With the average graduation rate at Universities between 50-60%, It is not surprising that academeics isn't for everyone. The coach makes a good point that he couldn't focus full time on his hockey career as he had to attend classes, study and write papers. As much as we all know the college education will give this young man more options down the road, he can always go back to college, he will not have the chance to go back to Juniors. He can focus solely on his hockey career and see where it takes him. I wish him luck.
