Hadley busts out for Broncos, earns NCHC honours

Considering he hadn't exactly been given the reins to the offence at Western Michigan University during his first two seasons, Aaron Hadley's most recent weekend had to be that much more satisfying.
The former Vernon Vipers and Nanaimo Clippers standout had but one assist in two seasons, covering 42 games, coming into his junior year with the Broncos. He picked an opportune time to spring to life though, as he tallied his first NCAA goal and then added three assists the next game as WMU toppled the previously unbeaten University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks in consecutive games.
His work earned him the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) offensive player of the week award.
The Castlegar, B.C. product scored the insurance goal in a 4-2 win Friday while centering the fourth line. He was moved up to third-line pivot duties Saturday and responded with three helpers in a 6-1 Broncos victory.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound 22-year-old played two full seasons and part of a third in Vernon before Nanaimo picked him up for the end of the 2013 season. In 152 BCHL games, Hadley recorded 39 goals and 50 assists.
He was part of the Vipers' run to a third-consecutive RBC Cup final in 2011 when they came up just short of a three-peat.
Hadley was a gold medalist with Team Canada West in 2011 at the World Junior A Challenge in Langley. He was also part of the 2012 WJAC in Yarmouth, N.S.
