The Coulee Region Chill, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce goaltender Hunter Vorva has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF). UWRF is a member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC).
Vorva, 20, is in his first full season playing in the NAHL. The native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, has appeared in 29 games, posting a 13-14-0 record this season with a 2.95 goals against average and a 91.5% save percentage.
Vorva (5’10/155) is another great example of a ladder of development success story. Last season, he played in the NA3HL for the West Michigan Wolves, where he was named the NA3HL Goaltender of the Year, along with being named to the All-NA3HL 1st Team and the All-NA3HL Rookie Team. He also made his NAHL debut during the 2014-15 season with the Michigan Warriors, along with playing in the 2015 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament. Prior to that, Vorva played in the NAPHL for the West Michigan Hounds (now Meijer AAA) for two seasons.
