Proud to announce my commitment to play D1 college hockey at The University of Michigan, thanks to everyone who's helped me along the way.— Cal (@calenkiefiuk13) February 19, 2016
The coaching staff has secured a verbal pledge from a highly regarded forward prospect in Calen Kiefiuk from the nearby Honeybaked program.
A creative, cerebral playmaker with a relentless motor, Kiefiuk is an outstanding three zone player and one of the top forwards in the state of Michigan from the 2000 age group. He has amassed a 34-39--73 line through 56 games this season to lead his team by a wide margin.
Looking towards the future Kiefiuk has attracted the attention of scouts on both sides of the border and should be a coveted prospect in the 2016 OHL draft as well as a strong candidate to join the USNTDP program. Kiefiuk is Michigan's 5th commitment from a 2000 born player, joining Compuware's Blade Jenkins, Mission forward Jack Randl, Northwood defenseman Mattias Samuelsson and Honeybaked defenseman Jacob Semik.
