With the news coming out this past weekend of Chill forward Isaac Theisen making his NCAA D1 commitment to the Air Force Academy, there's been a change in the roster of the Midwest team for the 2016 NAHL Top Prospects Tournament. Due to his commitment, Theisen will no longer be participating. Chill forward Alex Lambacher will be taking Theisens' spot in the tournament, representing Coulee Region and the NAHL as one of the top prospects in the league.
Lambacher, native of Val Gardena, ITA, was acquired by the Chill in a trade with the Minnesota Magicians right before the new year. Playing in his first season of NAHL hockey, Lambacher has compiled nine goals and 15 assists, three goals and one assist with the Chill. Three of his four points in a Chill uniform came in last Friday's come-from-behind victory over the Springfield Jr. Blues.
Lambacher will be joining teammates Dominik Florian (forward) and Matiss Kivlenieks (goalie) at the tournament that's set to take place February 15th and 16th in Plymouth, MI.
