Killer Bees forward Greiner makes NCAA DI commitment

March 31, 2014

Rio Grande Valley and NAHL Top Prospects forward Ben Greiner has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Bowling Green State in the WCHA.

The Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that forward Ben Greiner has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey for Bowling Green State University. Bowling Green is a member of the Western Collegiate Athletic Association (WCHA).
Greiner, 20, just completed his first regular season in the NAHL. The native of Newport Beach, California, led the Killer Bees in scoring this season with 51 points (22 goals, 29 assists) in 60 games played. The Killer Bees finished 3rd in the NAHL South Division and will face Topeka in the South Division Semi-Finals.
Greiner (6’1/190) was also selected to play on Team South at the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament back in February. Prior to this season, Greiner had played for Shattuck St. Mary’s prep school followed by stints in both the BCHL and USHL before finding a home in the NAHL with Rio Grande Valley.
Back on October 28th, Greiner was named the NAHL’s South Division Star of the Week. "Ben is a tremendous young man who has been our most consistent player all year.  He has worked extremely hard for everything he has gotten, and his commitment to BGSU is the result of that hard work.  When we drafted him last summer, he was excited for the opportunity to play in Rio Grande Valley, and take on a leadership role as a veteran player.  He is a leader by example, and has done a great job for us both on and off the ice as one of our captains.  We are proud of Ben and his commitment and know the staff at BGSU are getting a great hockey player, and an even better human being," said Rio Grande head coach Joe Coombs.
Greiner is the fourth active player on the Killer Bees roster this season who is committed to an NCAA Division I program, joining teammates Dylan Abood (Air Force), Joe Llaurado (Army) and Sean Mostrom (Denver).
