Brett Merner commits to Colgate University

The Nanaimo Clippers are very pleased to announce that #72 Brett Merner has committed to Colgate University for the 2024-2025 season.

GM and Head Coach Colin Birkas commented, "It's a very good day for the Clippers.

Brett watched the Clippers as a youth and came to all the camps and spring programs. Brett was also a member of our U16 team in the spring of 2019.

Brett signed with us last year and by the end of the season showed he was one of the best defenders in the league as he played a big role in our Fred page run. This year his offensive touch is coming through – becoming a leader in the room. Playing an even bigger role on a team at the top of the standings.

I'm very happy for the Merner family,  they are great people and this is something I hope they are all very proud of."
