Bordson Commits

Cedar Rapids forward Rob Bordson has committed to the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Bordson had previously taken a visit to Colorado College, but ultimately chose the Bulldogs. The Duluth, Minnesota native has recorded 15 points in 15 games for the Riders this season before coming down with mono.

Rob started the year on Cedar Rapids' affiliated list, but quickly played his way onto the official roster.

“Rob has certainly worked hard this season and gotten his junior career off to a good start,” said RoughRiders Coach and General Manager Mark Carlson. “Now he’ll have the chance to continue to improve as a player over the next season and a half and then have the opportunity to play college hockey in his hometown.”

The Riders selected the 6’ 2”, 175-pound Bordson in the eighth round of May’s United States Hockey League draft with the eighty-fourth overall choice. Bordson was named to the 2005-06 Associated Press Minnesota All-State Second Team after scoring 29 goals and recording 65 points in 31 games for Duluth Marshall High School last season.

Bordson will enroll at UMD in 2008.
