RoughRiders grad Koshiol commits to new NCAA D-III Keene State program for ’24-25 season


Ryan Koshiol, a defenseman for the EHL’s East Coast Wizards, has committed to Keene State College for the fall of 2024.

The Arizona native and Rocky Mountain RoughRiders alum played his second season with the Wizards in 2023-24 and served as one of the team’s captains. Overall, in 85 career games in the EHL, Koshiol tallied 42 points to his credit on seven goals and 35 assists.

“We are thrilled about Ryan’s commitment to Keene State,” said Wizards head coach and general manager Kory Falite. “He has grown so much over the two years he’s been a Wizard, both on and off the ice. He’s been the backbone to our ‘D’ core for the past two years, and we’re excited to see his game continue to grow at the next level.”

Koshiol will now join a new program this fall, as Keene State will be kicking off their inaugural season at the NCAA Division III level. Koshiol is one of 15 EHL players that have committed to the Owls.

“I’m super excited to be committed to studying and playing hockey at Keene State this fall,” said Koshiol. “I owe a huge thank you to Coach (Bobby) Rodrigue for giving me this opportunity. Thank you to my parents and family for all the support over the years. I also want to thank the coaching staff and teammates here at the Wizards for everything they’ve done for me the past two years. I’m excited for next season and can’t wait to get things started in the fall.”
