CC garners commit from Burnsville standout

Burnsville incoming senior defenseman Teemu Kivihalme retweeted @veritashockey’s tweet congratulating him on committing to Colorado College. That is confirmation to me.

Thanks to the CC fan forum for finding the initial tweet from @veritashockey.

Here is a recent short Q&A on him by Minnesota Hockey Hub. His father is Burnsville coach Janne Kivihalme.  Here is the start:

Burnsville defenseman Teemu Kivihalme learned on June 28 he will suit up for Team USA’s junior hockey team at the Ivan Hlinka Tournament in August. A dual citizen of the United States and Finland, the senior-to-be spent the past two summers training with Finland’s U16 and U17 national team.

Here are some recent stats and the Hlinka team roster. The tournament is from Aug. 13-17 in Breclav, Czech Republic, and Piestany, Slovakia.
