Lincoln Stars draft pick, and former Storm goalie, Nick Hopper has committed to the University of Nebraska-Omaha for the fall of 2008. Hopper spent the last two seasons playing in the NAHL, spending time with the Southern Minnesota Express and most recently the Santa Fe Roadrunners.
The Mavs may not be able to field a team if the Storm weren't around. They have one recruit coming in next fall, Matt Ambroz, and three more for 2008 (Kyle Ensign, Alex Hudson, and Jordan Willert.) To go along with those, players who played in Kearney and are current Mavericks include Eric Aarnio, Mark Bernier, and J.P. Platisha. Other notable Storm alumni that have suited up for UNO include Bill Thomas and Scott Parse.
Seems like UNO has a pretty strong pipeline with the Storm.
