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
“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.”
