Welcome Home Halverson: Traverse City Native Preps for Professional Hockey Future
TRAVERSE CITY – Brandon Halverson is back in northern Michigan for the summer as he anticipates his next move as an unrestricted free agent.
Halverson is a professional hockey player who grew up in Traverse City. He attended high school downstate before moving to Canada to play major junior hockey with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
The New York Rangers selected the goaltender 59th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
He most recently played in the American Hockey League with the Hartford Wolf Pack.
Now that his contract is up with the Rangers, he is training this summer and preparing for the next step in his career.
“It is not going to happen overnight and so my whole mentality is I am just going to work as hard as I possibly can, do everything I can right and I have so many people in my corner that are helping me. It is just nice to come back here and see where I started and how far I have come,” said Halverson.
Halverson made his NHL debut with the Rangers on February 17, 2018.
