Pittsburgh native Roman Kraemer has already played at four different levels of hockey in Western Pennsylvania and on Wednesday, the Johnstown Tomahawks forward signed up for four more years by committing to play his college hockey at Robert Morris starting with the 2019-20 season.

“I’m very excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 NCAA hockey at Robert Morris University,” Kraemer wrote on Twitter. “I would like to thank my family and coaches for all of the help and support over the years! #LetsGoBobbyMo”

Kraemer, a 5-foot-10, 194-pound left winger, spent his first full season at the NAHL level in 2017-18, when he led the Tomahawks with 21 goals and was second on the team with 48 points in 59 games.

In 2016-17, he got his first taste of the NAHL with six games with Johnstown at the end of the season after spending most of his winter with the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite under-18 team. He had 20 goals and 22 assists in 32 games with the Pens.

Before that, Kraemer played with the Pittsburgh Predators under-18 and under-16 teams as for the Serra Catholic Eagles in the PIHL.

Kraemer is the third player to give his verbal commitment to Robert Morris for the 2019-20 school year, joining Cobourg Cougars center Connor MacEachern and Cornwall Colts right winger Cameron Hebert.
