Metal Jackets' Wydo decides on Robert Morris

Press Release

The Motor City Metal Jackets have announced that forward Cody Wydo has committed to Robert Morris University (Atlantic Hockey) for next season.

Wydo, a 20-year-old from Wyandotte, Mich., won the North American Hockey League’s (NAHL) regular-season scoring title with 91 points on 40 goals in 58 games. He was also a plus-26.

“I chose Robert Morris because of its commitment to its hockey program and how I’ll fit in over the next four years,” said Wydo. “I’m also excited to attend its highly-ranked business program.”

"Cody’s commitment to the game, on and off the ice, is exemplary,” said Metal Jackets head coach David Cole. “It’s great to see a young player rewarded for his work ethic.”

Wydo, who competed in both NAHL Top Prospects Tournaments this season, is thankful for his opportunity to play in the NAHL and with Motor City.

“The competition in the North Division challenged me and my teammates to be on our game each night,” he said. “It was an exciting two years and now I’m looking forward to working out hard over the summer and competing for a spot in the RMU lineup.”

Wydo is the first player from this year’s Metal Jackets team to commit to a Division I program.

“We’re thankful for Cody’s contributions and we wish him continued success as he embarks on his NCAA career,” Cole added.
