 Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Two Eau Claire products are ready to embark upon the next phase of their sports journeys.

Tuesday, former Wisconsin Badger Jefferson Dahl left for Germany, where he'll start his pro hockey career.

What I'm going to try to do is work my way up through the ranks," says Dahl, who'll be joining the EHC Klostersee team, "try to get to the top German league and then work my way over to the Swedish league, or one of those more well-known for their hockey, and who knows from their, just try to keep working and building.  I'll be the only American on the team, there'll be one other Canadian on the team, so it'll be a little different, but I"m looking forward to it."

Also planning to head to Germany, but in a different sport, is Eau Claire North grad Sam Price, who says she's off to play pro hoops in Europe after finishing her final semester at St. Cloud State, where she completed her college basketball eligibility last season.

"Play in Europe for a couple of years and then hopefully come back and play in the WNBA" says Price, "that's the long-term goal, I mean, if it doesn't happen it doesn't happen, but that'd be pretty awesome."
