The Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League announced today that forward Jeff Rohrkemper will attend the University of Michigan for the upcoming 2009-10 season.
The Grosse Pointe native recently completed his second season with the Stampede, posting 25 points (8g, 17a) and was a plus-6 while appearing in all 60 games.
Under legendary head coach Red Berenson, the Wolverines have appeared in the NCAA tournament a record 19 consecutive times, made 10 Frozen Four appearances and captured two national titles (1996 and 1998).
"I think Jeff is a valuable recruit for Michigan,” said Sioux Falls head coach Kevin Hartzell. “He can play the role of a third-line center – meaning he can play against other top lines, win face-offs and be dependable in all situations.”
Rohrkemper will become the third former Stampede player to attend Michigan, joining Eric Werner, who played from 2001-2005 and Anthony Ciraulo, who will be entering his senior season this fall.
