The Muskegon Lumberjacks announced Thursday that Chris Klack officially committed to play Division I college hockey at Clarkson University, following his junior hockey career.
Klack announced his commitment via his personal Twitter account stating, “Very honoured and excited to announce my commitment to play D1 hockey for Clarkson University” - @ChrisKlack88.
The native of Georgetown, ON is currently in his second season in the United States Hockey League, and first with the Muskegon Lumberjacks, after being acquired from the Lincoln Stars last summer. Klack has missed the last 13 games due to injury, however, in the first 33 games of the season, the future Golden Knights forward registered three goals and 13 assists for a total of 16 points.
“Hockey is the only division one program there, and has a great rink with a great atmosphere,” said Klack, “I really like the small school feel with smaller classrooms that will allow me to develop relationships with me teachers during my four years there.”
Klack plans on receiving a business degree upon graduation.
