Kaysville’s Worden signed by NAHL team

Former Jr. Grizzlies player Nash Worden, a resident of Kaysville, has signed with the junior hockey club Wichita Falls Wildcats of the North American Hockey League — the second highest junior level in the United States.
The 15-year-old defenseman has been playing with Colorado Springs’ Pikes Peak Miners of the North American Prospects Hockey League. Worden was on the Miners 16U AAA team that won their second straight NAPHL championship last season.
This is a tremendous opportunity for Nash,” Miners coach Lucas Trombetta said on the team’s website. “Nash is still young, but he’s a player who has paid his dues with state, district, and national camps, USHL and NAHL main camps, and two tremendous seasons of AAA hockey with the Miners organization.
“He is a big, strong defenseman with a ton of offensive potential. He’s tough, and he’s the type of player who can play the game any way he has to in order to get the job done on the ice.
“Nash’s maturity, both on and off the ice, is well beyond the majority of players in his age group, and I’m certain that the experience with coach Baxter in Wichita Falls will help him realize his dreams of playing division 1 college hockey.”
“Nash has been a model citizen and a true student of the game in his time with the Miners organization, and we couldn’t be happier for he and his family for taking the next step in his hockey career and signing with the Wildcats.”
