Topeka (formerly Santa Fe) will have Bryce Merriam back but not Nick Hopper because he has agreed to play hockey for the University of Nebraska – Omaha. Congrats to Nick!
Nick Hopper is going to play another year of junior hockey, but this time for the Lincoln Stars (USHL). He was drafted by the Stars this past Spring. Looks like he's going to be our starting goaltender too, which is a pretty big feat. Going into the tryout camp the odds on favorite for starting goaltender was our backup from last season, Bryce Christensen. But Hopper had a terrific tryout (made the all-star team), and Bryce was let go. Everything I've heard about Hopper has been positive. The coaches love him, so it looks like he'll be starting for the Stars next season.
canuck_60...what team are you going to be playing for in the NAHL?
