Iron Rangers’ Ellingson commits to NCAA D-III Concordia-Moorhead
HOYT LAKES, Minn. – The Minnesota Iron Rangers of the Superior International Junior Hockey League has announced that co-captain Jake Ellingson has committed to attend school and play for NCAA D-III Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., in the fall.
The 20-year-old Brainerd, Minn., product led Minnesota in offensive production in 2015-16 picking up 42 points in 51 games on a team-high 17 goals and 25 assists.
Ellingson also paced the club in power play markers with seven and shared top spot in game-winning goals on the squad with three.
The Iron Rangers forward was also a point-per-game player in the postseason with five in as many playoff contests.
“I wish Jake all the best and want to thank him for the impact he’s made in our locker room, on our program and in the community,” stated Iron Rangers head coach and general manager Chris Walby.
“I couldn’t have asked anything more out of a player. Jake gave us everything he had. Coach Howe is getting both a great person and player for the next four years. He’ll be missed by us all.”
Ellingson will be joining a Cobbers men’s hockey program that competes out of the nine-school Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
He’ll join former Iron Rangers’ alumnus in forward Matt O’Dea and goaltender Alex Reichle at Concordia.
Under head coach Chris Howe, the Cobbers finished fourth in MIAC play this past season.
