The Iron Horse Kindersley Klippers have signed 1997 D Brody Ryberg, 1999 F Kyle Bosch, and 1998 G Justen Close for the upcoming season.

Brody Ryberg, a Kindersley native, played last season for the Deslisle Chiefs of the Prairie Junior Hockey League. In 36 games for the Chiefs, Brody totalled 9 goals and 15 assists for 24 points. Brody also played 10 regular season games and 8 playoff games for the Klippers as an affiliate player in the 2015-16 season.

“Brody proved down the stretch he is more then ready to be a good SJHL player. He became a very integral part of our blue line during our playoff run, and we are happy to have him with full time” -  Iron Horse Kindersley Klippers GM/Head Coach, Geoff Grimwood


Justen Close joins the Klippers after a tremendous playoff run with the Tisdale Trojans of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League. Justen, also local product of Kindersley, also played as an affiliate of the Klippers during the 2015-16 season.

“We followed Justen very closely last season. He was impressive at the Calgary Mac’s Tournament, and only got better as he carried his Tisdale Team to within one game of a provincial championship. What impressed us the most is his willingness to compete, battle through injuries, and his mental toughness. He will be a very good goalie in our league for the next few seasons.” - Geoff Grimwood


Kyle Bosch, another Kindersley native, will joining the Klippers for his rookie season. Last season, Bosch was a member of the Saskatoon Blazers of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League, posting 15 goals and 10 assists in 42 games. Kyle appeared in 7 regular season games and 2 playoff games for the Klippers as an affiliate player in 2015-16. 

“Kyle showed during his time with us last year he is ready to play. He is a smart player who has some bite in his game. We love his compete level and expect him to be a big player for us going forward.” - Geoff Grimwood


“We have really focused on bringing in a strong rookie class going forward. With Brody we are basically signing a veteran player, and we know Kyle and Justen are ready to contribute.” - Geoff Grimwood
