Benilde-St. Margaret's junior forward Michael Risteau has made a verbal commitment to play hockey hockey for the Western Michigan Broncos of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
Last season, Risteau was second on the team with 15 goals and a shooting percentage of .190. He tallied 29 points while playing in all 28 games during the 2021-22 campaign. He earned honorable mention All-Metro West Conference honors.
Risteau is the younger brother of Zach Risteau ('16), who recorded a 50-point season as a senior and holds the school record for career shooting percentage (.225).
This fall, Risteau is playing for SIT Mutual Funds in the Upper Midwest Elite High School League.
He will be joining a Western Michigan program that finished the 2021-22 season ranked sixth nationally while earning the number one seed in the Worcester Regional.
