PLAYED WITH HAWKS 2010-11 AND 2012-13
Former Hawk, Eli Lichtenwald, has signed with the Florida Panthers. Eli was the 2010-11 SJHL’s Rookie of the Year and later received a scholarship from Union College and won an NCAA D1 Championship his first year at Union. Eli still keeps tabs on the Hawks and volunteered this summer at the Hawks Annual Tobin Lake Walleye Championship. Injuries have slowed his play the last couple years but he is healthy now and the Hawks are very excited to follow his development within the Panthers organization.
