Grit’s Riego de Dios becomes team’s second NCAA commitment, decides on D-I Air Force


The NAHL’s Colorado Grit have their second college commitment of the team’s first season in the league.

Forward Romulus Riego de Dios has decided to play NCAA Division I hockey for the Air Force Academy (Atlantic Hockey), joining goalie Max Lacroix, who earlier committed to Boston University (Hockey East).

Riego de Dios, 19, is currently in his first season playing junior hockey in the NAHL for the expansion Grit. The native of Gahanna, Ohio, has seven goals and three assists for 10 points in 24 games to date.

“I am very honored and excited to announce my commitment to play Division I college hockey at the United States Air Force Academy,” said Riego de Dios. “Thank you to my coaches, teammates, friends, and everyone else who pushed to make me better every day, supported me throughout my process, and believed in me every step of the way.

“Most importantly, I would like to thank my mom for all the sacrifices she has made for me during my hockey career.”

Prior to playing in the NAHL, Riego de Dios spent four seasons playing for Culver Military Academy at the Prep and 16U levels.
