Alpena goalie commits to Bowling Green

Alpena IceDiggers' goaltender Phil Greer has committed to play for the Bowling Green Falcons of the CCHA starting next fall.

Greer, from Franklin, Mass., was a post-graduate last season for Kimball Union Academy in the New England Prep League where he played 897 minutes posting a 3.01 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage.

Prior to attending Kimball Union, Greer played for Arlington Catholic High School in Boston where he was the team's co-captain and Central Catholic League MVP in 2003-04. The Boston Herald also named him to the "Top Seven Players in Boston" team.

"As an organization we are very excited to announce that we have a player going to play at a great school like Bowling Green State University," Alpena head coach and GM Kenny Miller said. "Phil is a great kid, both on and off the ice; he works hard and sets a good example. He plays with a lot of intensity and passion and he leads by example. As an older player, I think the younger players look to him."

Tendered in April, Greer is expected to be a key contributor for the IceDiggers. Upon completing this season in Alpena, Greer will be one of the freshman to help compose the 2006-2007 Falcon roster.
