Maple Grove Forward Commits to Michigan Tech

Former Maple Grove forward and team captain in 2011-2012 Dylan Steman has committed to play for the Michigan Tech University Huskies. Steman, who was named Third-Team All-Metro by Star Tribune, had an impressive scoring line of 29g-38a-67pts in 30 games, finishing his high school career leading Maple Grove to their first Minnesota State Hockey Tournament appearance in school history. Steman has pretty average size, but sees the ice incredibly well, and plays a good all around game. He can be described as a fast, hard working, play-making forward, who can also score goals. Steman is a workhorse who will go into the corners and play physically, and can always find an open teammate. Bismarck of the NAHL tendered Steman, so he could end up playing for the Bobcats next season, but it's quite possible he could make his way onto a USHL roster this fall. According to Tech Hockey Guide, Steman will play two years of junior hockey before coming in as a freshman for the 2014-2015 season. With the Big Ten Hockey Conference and the NCHC forming in the fall of 2013, many of the current WCHA teams will be leaving to play in one of these two conferences, while Michigan Tech will remain.
