Joe spent the 2014-2015 season with the Coulee Region Chill of the NAHL. Presently he skates with the SIOUX FALLS STAMPEDE of the USHL. Joe hails from Crystal Lake IL and was an integral part of the star studded Midget Minor team that won Tier 1 National Championship back in 2013. (Over 10 players off of that team have either committed to or are playing D1) “Joe is a puck moving defenseman with a high hockey IQ. He has an uncanny ability to make good decisions under pressure and Ferris State will benefit from having a player of his ilk on the point.” Greg Tam, Chicago Mission Midget Major Coach Congratulations to Joe and the Rutkowski family.
