The Yellowstone Quake of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Tony Dahlberg, 20, has committed to play ACHA Division I hockey for Robert Morris University-IL.
Dahlberg, a native of Lakeville, Minnesota continues the tradition of the Eagles' making NA3HL players a priority in their recruiting efforts. The 5’9/165 lbs. forward scored 25 goals and had 45 points for the Quake in play that was consistently strong over the course of the entire 2016-17 season.
He also had 6 points in 9 playoff games as he led his team to the Frontier Division championship and a spot in the 2017 NA3HL Silver Cup Championship.
“We are excited for Tony to move on with his hockey career while getting his education. He plays the type of game that lends itself well to the team he is playing for and opponents don’t like playing against. He has worked very hard throughout the last two seasons for the Quake and we wish him the best of luck forward,” said Quake head coach Ryan Theros.
Dahlberg played in the NA3HL for two seasons with the Quake. In 84 career NA3HL games, he recorded 95 points.

"The NA3HL has been and will continue to be a foundation for our program," said Riley, " and we're confident Tony will make an impact for us quickly."
