Alex Chroman is 6’8” who grew up playing pond hockey in Minnesota. He then moved to Michigan, playing for the Rockford Rams in East Grand Rapids. Back in Minnesota, he played for the Elk River Hockey Association, Express Junior Hockey, Apple Valley High School, and the Hudson Havoc in the USPHL.
Wrangler Assistant Coach Kenny Simmons says, “Alex is a big, physical presence that has the capability to play forward and defense. His size can be intimidating but will also help clear the front of the net, allowing our goalies to do their job. He adds grit to our lineup.”
Alex just got to Steamboat, where he is also looking forward learning how to ski. He says he’s happy to be playing hockey in Colorado.
The Steamboat Wranglers are the newest team to join the Western States Hockey League. The WSHL is an Amateur Athletic Union, Tier II Junior “A” hockey league that has been in continuous existence since 1994.
