MUSKEGON, Mich. - The Muskegon Lumberjacks announced today that the club has acquired forward Charlie Strobel from the Waterloo Black Hawks in exchange for defenseman Tyler Procious.

Strobel, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound forward appeared in 19 games with Waterloo during the 2020-21 regular season, totaling three goals and two assists for five points while registering 15 penalty minutes. The Stillwater, Minn. native is committed to playing for the Golden Gophers at the University of Minnesota.

“We’re excited to bring Charlie to Muskegon,” said President of Hockey Operations Steve Lowe. “Charlie will bolster our forward group and bring leadership to our team. His drive to succeed really caught our eye.”

Procious, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound defenseman appeared in 27 games with the Lumberjacks during the 2020-21 regular season, totaling one goal and four assists for five points. The Pittsford, N.Y. native has yet to announce his NCAA commitment.

“We want to thank Tyler for all the hard work he put in with us,” said Lowe. “We made this transaction in Tyler’s best interest so he has the opportunity to move into a top-six role and focus on his long-term development.”

The Lumberjacks are gearing up for their 2021-22 season, starting the regular season on the road with the DICK’S Sporting Goods Fall Classic in Pittsburgh on September 25.
