College Hockey:
USHL’s Lancers get two players from NCAA ranks

Two players who began the season in the NCAA have left their respective schools to play for the USHL’s Omaha Lancers, according to HockeyProspect.com.

Forwards Anthony Hamburg (Colgate) and Bryce Johnson (St. Cloud State) joined the Lancers last week and will finish the season in the USHL.

Hamburg, who returns for his second season with the Lancers, registered three assists in seven games at Colgate to start this season after tallying five goals and 22 points in 54 games in Omaha a season ago.

Johnson was pointless in three games at St. Cloud after finishing third among all Topeka RoadRunners (NAHL) in scoring last season with 54 points (19 goals, 35 assists).

    Both left NCAA due to the fact that they felt they were not ready for college hockey. Smart move. With another year of juniors under their belt they will be primed and ready for the next level

    Being a Lincoln Stars fan, I wish these young men luck. The Lancers are a great team but I think some of the things they are taught will only hurt them. Of course they have been our rivals for years.

    do they each lose a year of eligibility?
