NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas – Stillwater, Minnesota native Seth Eisele has accomplished a lot since his junior debut in March of 2017. That debut came with the North Iowa Bulls, a game that Eisele and the Bulls lost, in a 2-1 game against the Peoria Mustangs.
Since then, he’s won a British Columbia Hockey League championship, and last weekend he picked up his first North American Hockey League victory as a member of the Lone Star Brahmas. Eisele picked up a 2-1 overtime win over the Amarillo Bulls in a Friday night game at the NYTEX Sports Centre, before taking a 4-1 loss the next night.
His 2017-18 campaign was spent in Wenatchee, Washington, with the Wenatchee Wild of the BCHL. Thanks in part to Eisele’s 20-11-0 record, Bliss Littler’s team took third place in the Interior Division standings, but the Wild went on a run in the playoffs, claiming the Fred Page Cup with 16 wins against just four losses. Wenatchee would eventually claim a spot in the Royal Bank Cup, Canada’s national Junior “A” championship tournament.
Eisele split time with former Minot Minotauro Austin Park during the regular season, but found himself backing up the Colorado native during the postseason run. An offseason trade landed him a roster spot with the Surrey Eagles early this season. After two losses to start the new year, including one against his old team, Eisele returned to the U.S., earning a win in his first start with the Brahmas.
Lone Star is spending the coming weekend on the road, with a two-game visit to the Topeka Pilots on the schedule. The North Iowa Bulls congratulate Seth Eisele on all of his accomplishments so far in his young career and wish him continued success in the NAHL.
