committed to Miami of Ohio for 2002-2003 season. Busby came to the Wings
from Brown University to join Wings head coach Chico Adrahtas who was his
former coach when Busby played for midget powerhouse Team Illinois. Head
coach Adrahtas comments, “Chris’s decision to go to Miami is like a perfect

in and I know that it is the type of hockey program that he will thrive in.
I think that Miami got a future all-CCHA defenseman when they got Chris to
commit to them.”

Busby will be joining former Wings players, Todd Grant (freshman) and Derek
Edwardson (soph). Miami players Pavel Nejezchleb, Ken Marsh and Jake
Ortmeyer are also Wings alumni who are seniors and will be graduating this
