The Northern Cyclones organization is extremely excited to announce the commitment of NCDC forward Zach Rehbaum to SUNY-Geneseo.
Rehbaum played parts of two seasons with the Cyclones, joining the team during the 2018-19 season. He played in 48 games this past season, playing a key offensive role and serving as one of the offensive leaders on the team.
“I feel blessed to have been a part of the Cyclones organization for two seasons after a rough start to my junior hockey career,” Rehbaum said. “I cannot thank Coach [Bill] Flanagan enough for the effort he put in so that my teammates and I could be successful as a team and as individuals.”
After being acquired from the Jersey Hitmen early in the 2018-19 season, Rehbaum scored 20 goals and added 21 assists for 41 points in just 38 games with the Cyclones.
He also helped the Cyclones become the first-ever 8th seed to defeat the Founders Cup Champions in the opening round of the playoffs that spring. The Cyclones swept the Hitmen 2-0 to advance to the Dineen Cup Semifinals.
In 48 games this past season, Rehbaum set new career-highs with 25 goals and 27 assists for 52 points. Rehbaum credits his success to the tight-knit groups he played with for two seasons in Hudson.
“I was surrounded by two great groups of guys whom I will have relationships with forever and for that I am grateful.”
