Rangers place trio on prospects roster

The North American Hockey League announced Monday the 20-man rosters for its first annual Top Prospects Tournament, which will be held February 17-19 at the Ice Cube in Ann Arbor.

Three Marquette Rangers are on the North Division squad, including forward Aaron Pietila and defensemen Nick Condon and Derek Grogan.

Pietila is the team's leading scorer with 40 points (16g, 24a) while Condon (third) and Grogan (seventh) are two of the NAHL’s top scoring defensemen.

“We are proud of these three guys for being chosen to represent the Marquette Rangers at the NAHL Prospect Tournament," Marquette head coach Randy Enders said. "They have all played a huge role for us the first half of the season and we are excited to watch them play with all the other top players in our league. We have no doubt that they will do our organization and themselves proud when they play in Ann Arbor.”
