Bradford Bulls Captain Yuval Rosenthal has made his commitment to Colorado State University (ACHA).

Yuval is a '95 D/F hailing from the country of Israel. At the age of 15, Yuval moved to Canada to pursue hockey in a Western Canadian Prep School -- where he was recruited to the Bradford Bulls by General Manager Michael Telford.

In 36 games, Rosenthal had 21 points (2g, 19a) from the blue line. Following the season, Yuval was selected as a member of the Israel World Championships Men's hockey team -- traveling to South Africa.

During the 2014 - 2015 season with the Bulls, Yuval was granted 'Elite Athlete Military Exception' Status from the Israeli government -- the first ever hockey player to have been given this status. This allows Yuval to pursue hockey in North America without being recruited to serve in his country's military.

Rosenthal's leadership and off-ice commitment was just as valuable as his on-ice play for the Bulls last season. Both factors contributed to Colorado's commitment to Yuval.

The Bradford Bulls will have several more college commitments announced in the coming weeks.
