Alpena IceDiggers defenseman Eric Roman has committed to Wayne State for the 2007-2008 season.
“I am extremely happy for Eric and his family,” Alpena head coach Kenny Miller said. “He is getting a chance to play at the D-I level in the Detroit area.”
Roman is in his second season with Alpena after spending his high school career at Orchard Lake St. Mary's where he won a state title in 2005.
“Eric stepped in last year and played a big role with our hockey club and he has improved everyday since he got here,” added Miller. “His hard work has paid off for him.”
The 20-year-old West Bloomfield native has played in 55 games this year and has seven goals and 17 assists for 24 points. Roman is also third on the IceDiggers with 103 penalty minutes.
