The Razorback Hockey team is excited to announce that Jack Critser has formally committed to Arkansas. A 5’11” winger from Overland Park, Kansas, Critser played two years of junior hockey first with the Minnesota Owls in the Minnesota Junior Hockey League (MnJHL) where he received the team’s Ironman award for playing in every game of the 13-14 season.
Critser began the 14-15 season playing sixteen games for the Junior A Minnesota Iron Rangers of the Superior International Junior Hockey League (SIJHL). He finished last season’s campaign with the Steele County Blades in the MnJHL. Said Critser about choosing Arkansas, “the University provides a variety of options and opportunities. I have also heard and seen a lot of good things about the hockey program at the University and it is something that I am very excited to be a part of.”
Since 2009, the Arkansas hockey program has amassed an overall record of 161-48-4, including three trips to the Division III National Tournament and five SECHC conference playoff tournament championships. The team’s home games are played at The Jones Center for Families in Springdale.
