Former Dragon Wins NCAA National Championship with Denver

Drumheller, AB: This past Saturday, a former Dragon helped the University of Denver make history as they won their 10th NCAA National Championship, the most by a single program in history!

Kent Anderson, who was a defenceman for the Dragons from 2019-2021, is currently in his sophomore season with the University of Denver Pioneers Men’s Hockey team. This season he had 7 points in 41 games played for the program, helping them advance to the NCAA Frozen Four. In the semi-finals, they knocked off 2nd seed Boston University by a score of 2-1 in overtime. Then on Saturday night against the 1st ranked Boston College, they shut them out to earn a 2-0 victory and the NCAA National Championship. This was Denver’s 10th National Title in their program’s history, which is now the most by any school. Another former Dragon, Brett Edwards, helped the Pioneers win their 9th National Championship in 2022.

During his two seasons with the Dragons, Kent Anderson played 66 games and had 29 points. In the 2020-21 season that was shortened by COVID, he was named an assistant captain for the team. He was an important piece of the Dragons organization in his time here, being a top two-way defenceman and bringing important leadership both on and off the ice.

Anderson was also recognized at the end of this season as the NCAA Elite 90 Award for having the highest grade point average among all players participating in the NCAA Frozen Four! Kent is taking a degree in finance and is currently holding a 3.975 grade point average!

We would like to congratulate Kent and the Denver Pioneers on their incredible season!
