St. Louis defenseman Meeh signs NAHL tender

Press Release

The St. Louis Jr. Blues of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) have announced that defenseman Kyle Meeh has signed an NAHL tender with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs of the West Division.
The 17-year-old from St. Louis, Missouri, was stellar in the month of November as he registered eight points (2 goals, 6 assists) in seven games played as the Jr. Blues posted a 7-0-0 record in November and Meeh was honored as NA3HL Defenseman of the Month.

Meeh (6’1/175) was called up to play for the Ice Dogs earlier this month on December 15th in 3-2 win against Kenai River.  Meeh currently leads all NA3HL defensemen in scoring with 26 points in 27 games played for the 1st place Jr. Blues.  His +28 rating is tied for 2nd in the NA3HL.

“Kyle has been great in all phases of the game this season,” said Jr. Blues head coach JP Beilsten.  “He is such an offensive threat as a defenseman and that is something that is rare, especially for someone as young as Kyle is.  He played at the Tier I 16U level last season and to come in and produce and be the leader he has, really says something about the type of player he is and his skill level.”
