Sioux City Musketeers defenseman Ryan Kesti has committed to play collegiate hockey at Northern Michigan University and will enroll at the school this fall.
Kesti has collected three points (1g, 2a) in 43 games for the Musketeers. His lone goal of the season was the overtime winner in the 4-3 victory over Team USA on October 23.
It is the second USHL season for the 20-year-old native of Red Wing, Minn. Kesti scored five points (1g, 4a) in 44 games while playing forward with the Sioux Falls Stampede in 2008-09.
Kesti will be joined at Northern Michigan by current teammate Stephan Vigier. Five other USHL players have committed to play hockey for the Wildcats: Reed Seckel (Green Bay Gamblers), Jared Coreau (Lincoln Stars), Ryan Daugherty (Omaha Lancers), C.J.
