Cents get forward Zach Risteau back from the USHL

The Merritt Centennials announced today the return of Zach Risteau for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Risteau played 19 games this season with the Central Illinois Flying Aces of the United States Hockey League, scoring five points (two goals, three assists).

The 19-year-old led the Centennials in goals (26) and points (50) in 2016-17 and was named to the BCHL All-Rookie Team. He added four points (three goals, one assist) in ten playoff games.

The Lakeville, Minnesota product is committed to St. Lawrence University for this September.

“Adding an offensive weapon like Zach to our line-up is huge,” said Cents General Manager and Head Coach Joe Martin. “We look forward to him building on his success with us last season and playing a key role in our playoff push down the stretch.”
