Nebraska-Omaha defenseman Nick Seeler has left the team for what the school is calling “personal reasons,” according to a brief press release issued Tuesday

“Nick has chosen to leave the program at this time,” said UNO coach Dean Blais in a statement. “We wish him well in the next chapter of his hockey career and his life.”

Seeler, who would have been a junior this coming season, played in 70 career games during the last two seasons, earning six goals and 13 assists for 19 points with 116 penalty minutes.

The Minnesota Wild selected Seeler in the fifth round (131st overall) of the 2011 NHL draft.
