When you think of the game that Northeast General Kyle Schroeder plays, where he is going to play NCAA Hockey next season makes sense.
His Head Coach, Bryan Erikson, talked about what Schroeder means to the Generals and what he will bring to Aurora University. He will try to do what Tyler Cooper and Jonathan young did for St. Olaf, get the team to an NCAA Tournament. Kyle brings energy and pace to wherever he plays in the lineup for the Generals, and projects to being the same to the college level right away next season.
Erikson said “Just really happy for him. Kyle has been here for 3 years. He is the type of kid that is the reason Rich, Bob, and I got into Junior Hockey. His passion and love of the game and his teammates are awesome. He comes to the rink every day with a smile on his face ready to run through a wall for anyone on the Generals. He is irreplaceable on the ice with his work ethic and ability to play in all situations. Just a great kid that is going to be very successful not only in hockey but in life.Kyle is an all-time General. His ferocious style of play is contagious and unrelenting. I have never coached a player that goes all out the way in which Kyle does. He practices and plays a million miles an hour. It is actually crazy to watch. His impact can never be properly measured. He does everything hard and well. He hits like a truck. He backchecks like crazy. He forechecks great. He blocks shots, he kills penalties, he is on the power play. He just does everything well. He is going to leave a huge hole next year that we will have a hard time replacing. I am super proud that Kyle wore the Generals uniform and can’t wait to see what he does at Aurora. They are getting a great player but better person,”
