Green Bay Gamblers goaltender David Hrenak announced that he has committed to St. Cloud State University following his time in the USHL.
"David has developed very quickly for us," said Gamblers head coach Pat Mikesch. "The skill level of the USHL challenges goalies to be focused and consistent in some very tough environments. His athletic ability and work ethic will enable him to play at the highest levels of hockey in the future."
The six-foot-two, 181 pound Slovakian netminder is in his first season in the USHL. He currently has seven wins on the season and sports a 2.46 GAA and a .917 SV%. His SV% is tied for eighth among all USHL goaltenders. Hrenak also has two shutouts on the season, the most recent of which came on Jan. 21 in Muskegon.
Hrenak has also represented his country on a number of occasions. He has suited up for Slovakia's U18 and U20 teams and has also played in the U17 World Hockey Championship and both the U18 and U20 World Junior Championship. Prior to his time in the USHL, Hrenak also played for HK Dukla Trencin and MsHK Zilina in Slovakia.
With Hrenak's announcement, the Gamblers now have 19 players committed to a Division 1 school.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 15th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2016-17. 30 or more players from the USHL have been selected in four consecutive NHL Drafts, and more than 400 players on team rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
