London Knights get another as Nebraska-Omaha goalie Stolarz leaves school for OHL

The Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights have added their second collegiate player in a week as Nebraska-Omaha announced Monday that freshman goaltender Anthony Stolarz is leaving the Mavericks to play for the OHL-leading Knights.

“I’m obviously disappointed by Anthony’s decision,” said UNO coach Dean Blais in a news release. “He has been making a very challenging transition from the North American Hockey League to the WCHA and we, as coaches, saw good progress from him in the first half of the season. But ultimately, it’s his decision where he wants to play and we wish him the best in the next chapter of his career.”

Stolarz, a second-round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers last June, went 2-5-0 with a 2.56 goals-against average and a .898 save percentage with Nebraska-Omaha.

Last week, Denver freshman defenseman Dakota Mermis left the Pioneers to sign with London.

  1. His decision, but personally I think he should have stuck it out at least until the end of the season. He would have been UNO’s undisputed No. 1 next year
