The Coulee Region Chill, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that forward Alex Falconer has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at the Air Force Academy in the Atlantic Hockey Association.
Falconer, 20, is in third and final NAHL season. The native of Kohler, Wisconsin, has played in 122 career regular season NAHL games, posting 54 points (23 goals, 31 assists).
Falconer (6’3/190) is currently tied for 2nd in scoring for the Chill so far during the 2016-17 season with 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists) in 19 games played. He has been on fire in the month of November, recording seven points in six games.
“Our staff here in Coulee Region is extremely excited for Alex. He is a special young man that takes his craft very serious. The Air Force Academy is a great fit for him and I know that Coach Seratorre and his staff will be proud to call him a Falcon,” said Chill head coach Ryan Egan.
Falconer broke into the NAHL during the 2014-15 season with the Wichita Falls Wildcats. He played in 45 games that first season. He then played in two games with the Wildcats to start the 2015-16 season before being traded to Coulee Region, where he played 56 games last season and recorded 20 points.
Prior to playing in the NAHL, Falconer played four seasons at Shattuck-St. Mary’s Prep School in Fairbault, MN.
He is the second member of this year’s Chill team who has made an NCAA Division I commitment.
