Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- St. Scholastica freshman defenseman Brenden Kotyk has announced via Twitter his commitment to play for the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) Bulldogs starting in the 2013-14 season.

"BIg thanks to all St.Scholastica coaches, staff, and most of all the boys for a great first year of college!" Kotyk tweeted. "Excited to become a UMD Bulldog."
