Nebraska-Omaha freshman forward Jake Montgomery is leaving the team to play for the Sioux City Musketeers, his former team in the United States Hockey League.
“We certainly wish Jake the best,” said Omaha coach Dean Blais in a statement. “He is a good student and a good person, but he wasn’t getting the ice time he expected here. He’ll get that opportunity in Sioux City and a chance to continue his hockey career.”
The native of Oakdale, Minn., appeared in six games for the Mavericks and recorded no points, two penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating in his time with Omaha.
