Lincoln Stars forward David Parrattino has committed to play collegiate hockey at Canisius College following his USHL career.

Parrattino has recorded 17 points (5g, 12a) in 36 games this season for the Stars.  He has registered multi-point games on three occasions this season, including in consecutive games in January, scoring two points (1g, 1a) in a 4-1 victory over Sioux Falls on January 7th and two assists in the 5-4 win over Fargo on January 10th.  He made his USHL debut last season with the Stars, appearing in seven games.  He scored a goal in his first USHL game on November 9th, 2012 during a 5-0 victory over Cedar Rapids.  Parrattino will celebrate his 20th birthday next week.

The Rochester Hills, Michigan native spent most of last season playing in the NAHL after playing youth hockey for the Honeybaked AAA organization.
