HEARST, Ont. – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Hearst Lumberjacks have announced that standout forward Riley Klugerman has committed to attend NCAA Division III Concordia University-Wisconsin and play for the Falcons men’s hockey program.

Currently sitting fourth in NOJHL scoring, the 20-year-old Airdrie, Alta., product has 41 points, on 18 goals and 23 assists, in 33 games with Hearst so far this season, having already surpassed personal single-season bests in markers and total points.

In his two-year career with the Lumberjacks, Klugerman has played close to a point-per-game pace with 76 in 77 outings on 30 tallies and 46 helpers.

Based in Mequon, Wis., the NCAA D-III Falcons compete out of the 10-school Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.
