The Granite City Lumberjacks of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that defenseman Cole Buhl has committed to play college hockey for Aquinas College, a member of the NAIA.
Buhl, 20, has played for Granite City in the NA3HL the past two seasons. The 5’10/190 lbs. native of South St. Paul, Minnesota, recorded 20 points (4 goals, 16 assists) in 43 regular season games during the 2017-18 season.
Buhl also has four points in 11 career NA3HL playoff games.
Prior to playing for the Lumberjacks in the NA3HL, Buhl was a standout defenseman for South Saint Paul Secondary, playing three years of high school hockey and earning Metro East All-Conference Honorable Mention honors.
“I really like the location of the campus and the top notch facilities that are available,” stated Buhl. Buhl will be studying Economics while at Aquinas.
“Cole worked hard in the off-season and that has paid off for him this year. He is an offensive defenseman and will easily make the transition to college hockey. We are excited for Cole's commitment and wish him the best of luck on his next chapter in hockey,” said Lumberjacks head coach Brad Willner.
