“I am very excited to work with Brayden and Bayly for the upcoming season. It’s not every day you get an opportunity to play at a high level of hockey with your brother, and I know that is something special both players will cherish,” Haddon added.
Northern Colorado is joining the USPHL after spending their entire existence as members of the Western States Hockey League (WSHL).
