Kalamazoo brings Michigan native home for 1st crack at the pros.

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced Tuesday that rookie forward Ryan Naumovski was signed to a Standard Player Contract.

Naumovski, 24, joins the K-Wings after spending the 2023-24 season with Augustana University (NCAA D-I). The Shelby Township, MI native recorded eight goals and 17 assists across 34 games with the Vikings this year. 

Prior to suiting up for Augustana, the 6-0 forward played four seasons at Niagara University (NCAA D-I). The righty-shot skated 132 games for the Purple Eagles and totaled 23 goals and 58 assists with 18 PIMS from 2019 thru 2023.

Kalamazoo is back in action Friday at 7:00 p.m. EDT versus the Allen Americans (25-28-2-1)  for ‘Game Show Night’ and $3 Friday at Wings Event Center. Tickets to the game can be purchased HERE.

Kalamazoo’s painted ice lineup concludes with Green Ice on Saturday, March 16! For years, others have tried to emulate, but there’s truly nothing quite like Kalamazoo’s 40th annual ‘Green Ice’ game, presented by Southern Michigan Bank & Trust. Every painted ice game in pro hockey traces its roots to this game. It’s truly the biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Kalamazoo. Come enjoy Green Beer, great hockey and the postgame jersey auction.
