Kings’ head coach and general manager Kent Lewis is proud of Adair’s committment to NMU. 

“He has proven to be a key player for our club. Players join this club to get better and move on to great NCAA programs. Adair has certainly improved over the course of two seasons and is now going to go on to a strong program where he’ll continue to develop his skills and get an incredible education.”

After receiving offers from several highly regarded NCAA programs, Adair is excited to continue his post-BCHL hockey career with the Northern Michigan Wildcats for a number of reasons.

“The Wildcats hockey program’s coaching staff is established and is well respected. The program has a strong history and is in a strong conference within the NCAA. The team has a great track record with BCHL players and the school has a strong computer science faculty.”

Adair will be pursuing his passion for computer programming with a degree in computer science with a goal of working for a gaming company in the future.
