Omaha Lancers defenseman Nash Worden has committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at the United States Military Academy following his USHL career.
Worden has appeared in 23 games this season for the Lancers and recorded nine points (3g, 6a). He has also been part of a defensive unit that has allowed the fewest goals in the USHL (97) and leads the League in penalty killing percentage (89.5%). The 18-year-old scored all three of his goals this season during a five-game span in January, including the game-winning goal in the 4-1 victory over the Tri-City Storm on January 17th.
It is the second season in the USHL for Worden after he recorded six points (2g, 4a) and 124 penalty minutes in 51 games for the Lancers in 2012-13. The Kaysville, Utah native was selected by the Lancers in the 2012 USHL Entry Draft.
Worden is joined by Lancers teammate Cole Bruns who is also committed to play hockey at Army. Indiana Ice teammates Tyler Pham and Michael Preston are two other current USHL players committed to the school.
The United States Military Academy is located in West Point, New York and the Army Black Knights are a member of the Atlantic Hockey Association. There are two USHL alumni on the roster this season; Christian Pomarico (Muskegon Lumberjacks) and Andrew O’Leary (Lincoln Stars).
