MJHL Leading Scorer Dalton Andrew Commits’ To UND

The Winkler Flyers are excited to announce the commitment of forward Dalton Andrew to the NCAA Division 1 University of North Dakota Hockey Program.

Andrew has played all three of his Junior A hockey seasons as a Flyer, where he put up 70 goals, and 58 assists for 128 points in 141 games. That’s nearly a point a game over his career. In 2023-24 Andrew amassed 43 goals and 39 assists for 82 points in 54 games to take home the Mike Ridley Trophy for the MJHL’s leading scorer.

Andrew spoke on what lead him to UND “I believe it's the best spot to develop my game and move me to the next level. UND is one of the best organizations in all of college hockey, they have a great coaching staff, unbelievable facilities, a great winning track record, they've proven ever year that they develop players and get them to the next level. For me this is a a childhood dream come true to play for the University Of North Dakota.

“Dalton has shown a high level of growth not only this season, but yearly throughout his entire three years in Winkler.  He continually shows commitment to his off ice and on ice training during all parts of the year, especially during Christmas breaks to ensure his game would continue to rise throughout the season.   He has been receptive to the coaching and teaching that would help develop his individual game and prepare him as a person and player for the high level of hockey coming next season.  DA has worked extremely hard, and with the help and support of his teammates, family, billet family, trainers, and the rest of the coaching staff, is very deserving of this next opportunity at the University of North Dakota.  Congratulations to Dalton and his family.” GM & Head Coach Justin Falk and the hockey operations staff could not be more thrilled for the Andrew family.

Andrew gave his thoughts on being a Winkler Flyer “I think being a Winkler Flyer showed me how to be a professional, every day is a chance to get better. Having three ex NHL coaches was awesome, they really showed me how to take my game to the next level, from the extra work at the end of practices to the different tools and knowledge they provided me with, along with my work ethic. This all helped me get better over my three years here which led me to success.” He added that his thoughts on the organization “I have nothing but great things to say about the Flyers organization. From the coaching staff to the trainers, our marketing guy all the people behind the scenes, Including board members and volunteers. They really make it easy on us as players and allow us to focus on just playing the game which I think helped a lot. “

We are so proud of you DA, and are thrilled to see what’s next! You’ve grown so much as a player and a young man over these last three years. Congratulations to the Andrew family!
