Fargo Force forward Ben Meyers has committed to play college hockey at the University of Nebraska-Omaha at the end of his junior hockey career.
Meyers, a Delano, Minnesota native, is playing in his first full USHL season with the Force after spending most of last year with Delano High School. He scored one goal in eight games with the Force at the tail end of last season. The 19-year-old has 32 points (19G, 13A) in 49 games this season. Additionally, Meyers currently sports a five-game goal scoring streak.
“I really loved the campus and the area when I took my visit,” Meyers said. “I also loved everything the coaching staff is doing with the program down there and I'm really excited about the opportunity to compete in the NCHC.”
Meyers was selected by Fargo in the seventh round, 96th overall in the 2014 USHL Phase I Draft. He joins John Schuldt as the second member of the current Force roster to commit to Nebraska-Omaha.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 16th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2017-18. 30 or more players from the USHL have been selected in five 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.
