Lincoln Stars forward Luka Maver has committed to play college hockey at American International College.
"I am excited for the opportunity to develop as a person and player at American International College," Maver said. "I loved everything about the school and am really looking forward to playing for their coaching staff."
Maver has nine points in 31 games for Lincoln this season, his first season in the USHL. Prior to joining the Stars, Maver recorded 41 points in 99 games for the Topeka RoadRunners (NAHL). He also played for HK Olimpija Ljubljana in Slovenia.
The Slovenian forward has also represented his country on multiple occasions, including tallying five points in five games at the 2017 IIHF Division I World Junior Championship to help Slovenia to a bronze medal.
With his announcement, Maver becomes the 21st Division I college commit on the Stars roster.
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.
