Willmar Forward Luedtke Makes NCAA Commitment

May 6, 2022

The Willmar WarHawks of the NA3HL are pleased to announce that forward Ben Luedtke has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey for Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. 

 Luedtke 20, 5’9 / 172lb. forward from Wayzata, MN. Just finished his 2nd and final season of junior hockey with a junior career stat of 53 points, 20 goals and 33 assists in 80 total games. This age out season was a big year for Ben as he tallied 48 (18 goals, 30 assists) of his 53 career points in 40 games this season for the WarHawks. Ben Luedtke showed his leadership ability by being named and serving as captain for his age out season as well. 

Luedtke began his junior hockey career with the North Iowa Bulls (NA3HL), before being acquired by the WarHawks around mid season of the 20-21 year.

 “Luedtke I believe is a prime example of the kind of development that can take place here in Willmar when you have a player who carries a highly motivated work ethic like Ben has from day 1 that he joined us back in the middle of 20-21 season. One of our hardest workers and greatest leaders on and off the ice without a doubt! We look forward to seeing him perform at the next level as a Cobber” stated WarHawks Head Coach Connor White.

 The WarHawks congratulate Ben Luedtke on his college commitment to Concordia (MN) joining former WarHawks head coach Kirk Olimb and wish him all the best as his hockey career continues to move forward.
