Grosse Pointe native picks Michigan

Compiled by MiCHO Staff

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.
