College Hockey:
Holt Leaves UNO

— Nebraska-Omaha goaltender Chris Holt has decided to forego his junior year of eligibility with the Mavericks to sign a professional contract with the New York Rangers.

“We are very excited for Chris,” UNO head coach Mike Kemp said. “Having guys like Chris Holt mature and develop in our program is very gratifying. We wish him the best.”

Per NHL club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

Holt, a sixth round pick of the Rangers in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, leaves UNO with a 24-31-6 career record over 64 games with a 3.04 goals against average and a .902 save percentage.

The South Surrey, British Columbia native ranks second on the all-time wins list at UNO, behind former Maverick Dan Ellis.
