College Hockey:
Hepp leaves St. Cloud State, signs with ECHL team

St. Cloud State senior defenseman Chris Hepp has left the Huskies and signed a contract with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL.

The 23-year-old Hepp was an assistant captain for the Huskies and had a goal and two assists in 20 games this season.

“Chris was a big part of our success in 2009-10 with his physical and demanding defensive play,” SCSU coach Bob Motzko said in a statement released by the school. “We thank him for his contributions to the program and we wish him all the best as he begins his professional career.”

For his St. Cloud State career, Hepp played 100 games and had three goals and 10 assists. His 224 penalty minutes are good for fifth on the school’s all-time list.

    Is it really worth leaving school to play in the echl? My understanding is they make very little money.
