The Florida Eels is honored to announce its first college commitment for the 2020-21 playing season. Congrats goes out to ADAM BURTZLAFF who has committed to ACHA Div 2 Bowling Green State University for the 2020-21 Season
Adam was a 2 year veteran of the Florida Eels.
Adam comes from Broomfield,Colorado. In fact, Adam is one of a 1/2 dozen Eels players who played on the Eels from Colorado. Over the past decade the Eels have had over 20 players from Colorado
This past season he was Captain of the Eels Elite team. Last season he played on both the Eels Premier and Elite teams. He is a forward and a very strong face-off man.
Burtzlaff came back from a Nationals last season run with the Eels Premier team in 2019 to go for it again with the Eels.
During the regal season this year in 41 games Adam scored 15 goals and accumulated 35 assists for 49 points. He averaged 1.20 points per game. He was 3rd in scoring with the Eels. Burtzlaff led the team in assists, game-winning goals (5) and tied for the lead in power play points (11).
It is especially nice to see one of our players advanced to college and reach his dreams and goals. He comes from a very supportive family who have made enormous sacrifices to help their son achieve his goals. Both of Adam’s parents are alumni of BGSU
We wish Adam the best in his future
