History

2007-08: Vogelhuber had a very discouraging year health-wise.  He had already had a serious knee injury in 2006-07, and he suffered yet a second season-ending injury in just his second game of the year for the Des Moines Buccaneers.

2008-09: Vogelhuber skated in 29 games as a freshman at Miami University (Ohio). He scored 2 goals and 2 assists for 4 points. Vogelhuber scored 1 of Miami's 3 goals in their championship game loss to Boston University at the Frozen Four.

2009-10: As a sophomore, Vogelhuber played 42 games with 8 goals, 4 assists for 12 points.

2010-11: Vogelhuber skated in all 39 games for Miami as a junior as the RedHawks captured the CCHA playoff championship after finishing third in the league in the regular season. While overshadowed by some of Miami's other high scoring forwards like Carter Camper (BOS) and Andy Miele (PHO), Vogelhuber did his part offensively, scoring 7 goals with 14 assists while playing a sound two-way game. He was a solid +11 with 16 PMs.

2011-12: Vogelhuber made his pro hockey debut – appearing in two late season games with the AHL's Springfield – following his senior season at Miami. He was scoreless with 4 penalty minutes in his brief stint with the Falcons. Vogelhuber's offensive numbers were down a bit in his final college season; he scored 4 goals with 10 assists and was plus-seven with 55 penalty minutes. The Redhawks struggled to stay above .500 for much of the season before going on an eight-game winning streak late in the season that took them into the CCHA semifinals and led to an at-large berth in the NCAA East Regional. Vogelhuber was not tendered an NHL contract by Columbus; becoming an unrestricted free agent. He signed an AHL deal with Springfield in August 2012.

 

 

Talent Analysis

Vogelhuber is a quick forward who is average in most areas without being exceptional in any areas. He has a decent hockey sense and plays well in his own zone, but his offensive talent is limited.

 

Future

Vogelhuber has signed a one-year deal with the Blue Jackets' farm team, the Springfield Falcons.  He will suit up for the Falcons in 2012-13.

The Columbus Blue Jackets had top five picks in two of the last three NHL drafts. As a result there system has a good amount of quality prospects that should be seeing formidable playing time in the future.
