Bondra Commits to Michigan State

According to the Chilliwack Chiefs website, David Bondra has commited to Michigan State University for the 2012 - 2013  season.

Bondra finished the 2011 - 2012 campaign with the Chiefs (BCHL) with 63 points (3rd on the team). He led the team with 41 assists. His 22 goals on the year put him 3rd on the taem. He tallied 37 penalty minutes. A 1992 birthday, he is listed at 5-11, 185 lbs and originally is from Annapollis, Maryland.

David Bondra will make his debut in Green & White this upcoming fall.

Chilliwack has been a bit of a pipeline for MSU sending Shawn Horcoff, Brad Hodgins, Brian Maloney, Jeremy Jackson, Kevin Estrada, Derek Grant, and Harvey Smyl to East Lansing.

For those hockey fans, the last name Bondra should sound familiar, as David is the son of former NHL'er Peter Bondra. He spent 17 seasons in the NHL, including 14 with the Washington Capitals where current MSU assistant Kelly Miller was his teammate up through the 1999 season. Peter finished his NHL career with 503 goals in 1,081 games.
