Minot, ND – As the 2016/17 NAHL season draws near we are giving Tauros fans a chance to meet all of the new members of the club as well as learn a little more about the returning Tauros. We will play 20 questions with a different Tauro every day from now until the NAHL Showcase going in number order starting today with #2 Charlie Weiand.
Weiand is joining the Tauros after three seasons playing for Rosemount High School in Minnesota. The 6’0” 183 lb. defenseman posted 6 goals and 19 assists over his 75 career high school games (three seasons). The Tauros drafted the 18 year-old defenseman in the eighth round of this summer’s NAHL draft. Weiand played with fellow Tauros 2016 draft pick Austin Dollimer at Rosemount High.
From the Coaches’ Office: Charles attended our pre draft camp and performed so well, that we selected him in our 2016 draft. He has a presence on the ice and is a big strong kid that can be valuable in both ends of the rink. He had a strong season last year at Rosemount HS, and we are excited to see how that translates to junior hockey. – Marty Murray
