Brandon’s Braden Keeble has confirmed his commitment to join the NCAA Division I Yale University Bulldogs in New Haven, Connecticut. Prior to joining Yale, Keeble will suit up for the Brooks Bandits (AJHL) for the 2022-23 season. Depending on when his coaches feel he’s ready for the next level of play, he will then join Yale for the start of the 2023 or 2024 season.
Keeble spent last season with the Brandon Wheat Kings U18 AAA squad where he amassed an impressive 96 points in just 44 regular season games. His strong showing was enough to warrant being named the Canadian Elite Hockey Leagues (CEHL) player of the year for 2021/22.
Keeble told bdnmb.ca that he selected Yale over several other schools, including Princeton, for a number of reasons. “A big consideration for both my family and myself was the educational component…as well as the hockey side of things”. “Overall, I couldn’t be any happier”.
