Fargo Force defenseman Connor Mayer has committed to play college hockey for the Colorado College Tigers following his junior hockey career.
Mayer is in his third full USHL season, spending time with the Sioux City Musketeers and Madison Capitols before joining the Force in January 2018. In 17 games last season, he tallied two points (1G, 1A).
So far this season, the 19-year-old has four points (2G, 2A) in 12 games played.
Mayer played high school hockey for Benilde-St. Margaret’s in St. Louis Park, MN before coming to the USHL. In 52 varsity games, the Champlin, MN native recorded 41 points (13G, 28A).
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 17th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2018-19. The USHL had a record 45 players selected at the 2018 NHL Draft, more than any junior league in the world, 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.
