The Coulee Region Chill, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that two players have made NCAA commitments. Goaltender Hunter Vorva and forward Aussie Miller have both committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF).

Vorva (5’10/155) is another great example of a ladder of development success story.

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.
Miller, 20, is in his second and final season of junior hockey in the NAHL with the Chill. The native of Stoughton, Wisconsin, has appeared in 45 games so far this season and recorded 11 points (6 goals, 5 assists). Miller (5’9/172) also played for the Chill in 2014-15, recording 14 points in 49 games played. Overall in his NAHL career, Miller has appeared in 94 career games and recorded 25 points.
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Miller was a standout forward for Stoughton High School in Wisconsin, along with playing on Team Wisconsin. In his high school career, he had 159 points in 109 career games.
Seven players for this year’s 2015-16 Chill team have made NCAA commitments.
