Omaha defenseman, Joe Sova, has committed to the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, according to Chris Heisenberg.
Sova, a third year veteran, currently has 10 points on the season and is a +13. The Berwyn, Illinois native has also spent time with Waterloo and Sioux City prior to Omaha.
Sova is on the larger side, standing in at 6'2" 190 lbs, but can be a liability on the ice at times. He has been known to pinch in at the wrong times and will get beat multiple times during games. Some work with his skating could help the problem, but he has turned into a productive defenseman these past two years.
Sova will enroll next fall for the Nanooks.
