The Wolverines will not have the top 2000 birth-year defenseman from Michigan on their roster next season.
Bode Wilde will not be playing for the University of Michigan in the upcoming season.
As first reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie and confirmed by MiHockey, Wilde, a Birmingham native and product of USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program, will decide the next step in his hockey career after this week’s NHL Draft in Dallas.
Wilde is a projected first-round pick; he was ranked No. 17 among all North American skaters in the final NHL Central Scouting rankings earlier this season.
He was a second-round pick of the Saginaw Spirit in 2016.
2018 draft eligible U.S. defenceman Bode Wilde is not going to the University of Michigan next season. He will get drafted and see what his non-school options are. Saginaw owns his OHL rights.
