Zach Schrotenboer is a sophomore forward on the UW-River Falls men’s hockey team. He is from Geneva, Ill., and last played on the junior hockey team Chicago, NAHL, according to uwrfsports.com.
As a freshman he made the All-NCHA rookie team and was named to the WIAC scholastic honor roll. He was fourth in the team in scoring with 16 total points on eight goals and eight assists. He is the second highest returning scorer back this season.
“I want to build on freshman year and be on the All-WIAC team this season,” Schrotenboer said.
When asked why he decided to come to school at UWRF Schrotenboer said, “I chose UWRF because of the winning tradition and support of the fans we get every night.”
Schrotenboer showed how important the home ice advantage is to him when he led the push behind selling shirts to students for the home opener white out game against Concordia-Moorhead College encouraging attendance.
He added that the team’s goal is to be perfect at home and win the WIAC.
Schrotenboer has played hockey since he was five years old and his favorite hockey memory came when he was 14 years old. He said he played on a select USA team in the Czech Hockey Challenge where the team won the bronze medal.
Schrotenboer is a business major and when not playing hockey he enjoys working on his golf game.
