The Devon Xtreme are proud to announce the teams’s newest signing, forward Austin Wentz!

Wentz comes to Devon following his 2023-24 season with the Prairie Hockey Academy, where he put up a total of 31 points in 33 games played.

He spoke over the phone about what led to his signing in Devon saying, “Kelly (Head Coach/GM Kelly Buchberger) got in touch with my agent the other day. He liked me as a player and just hearing that, and having the opportunity to join the Devon Xtreme is an awesome opportunity. That got me really excited and now I’m here, and yah I’m just super excited.”

Wentz talked about making the move up to the AJHL mentioning, “It’s a fast league, a strong league and I think it’s a great league where you can develop as a player, and get better.”

Branching into what he feels he brings on the ice for the Xtreme Wentz said, “I play hard, tough and I like to be the player who out works everybody on the ice. I like to create opportunity, offensive chances and make my teammates better.”

Throughout the conversation Wentz continued to put emphasis on how important getting to know his teammates, and having a good culture surrounding the team is to success. When asked about it he managed to state it quite simply saying, “If you have a team that can bond and come together right away, that is how championships are won.”
