The New Ulm Steel is proud to announce that defenseman Max Kjome has committed to play MCHC (ACHA Div-III) hockey at Lawrence Technological University.

Kjome, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, played for the Steel for two seasons where he tallied seven goals and 33 assists in 81 games played.

“I would like to thank the Steel organization for a great two years and the teammates I had during that time,” Kjome said.
