From Livonia to the Soo…with a few trips down to Texas in between.
Former Livonia Churchill standout Jordan Venegoni has announced his commitment to play Division 1 hockey at Lake Superior State.
The Livonia native has spent the last two-plus seasons skating for the Amarillo Bulls of the NAHL.
“LSSU is a great school with great coaches who want you to succeed,” Venegoni told MiHockey. “They are getting better every year. It’s every kid’s dream to play Division 1 hockey and I get the chance to live that dream – it just feels surreal, and the benefits of being in my home state.”
Venegoni suited up for Livonia Churchill from 2015-18, wearing an ‘A’ for the Chargers for two of his three seasons.
In 2016-17, he posted 54 points in 27 high school games; the next season, he split time between Amarillo and Churchill.
In 2018-19, he registered 10 points and 52 penalty minutes in his first full season of NAHL play; this past season, his points total jumped to 51 in 54 games. He also finished with a +22 on the season.
