Green Bay Gamblers forward Peter Maric will play hockey at Colorado College following his USHL career.
Although the following USHL press release does not specify if the 5-foot-10, 184-pounder will come to CC this fall, I think it is quite likely he will to fill the spot vacated by Dakota Eveland while he recovers from neck surgery.
Here is a video highlight of Maric (No. 13) in action and another. The 19-year-old appears to have a knack for knocking in rebounds.
Here is the rest of the release …
Maric put up 17 points (4g, 13a) and posted a plus-10 rating in 40 games for the Gamblers after being acquired early in the season from the Sioux City Musketeers. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native returned to his home state and was part of the Gamblers Anderson Cup squad that finished with a 47-9-4 record in the regular season.
He added two points (1g, 1a) while playing in all 12 postseason games to help the Gamblers capture the Clark Cup. He recorded an assist on the game-winning goal in the series-clinching 5-2 Game Five victory over Waterloo on May 23rd.
Maric first broke into the USHL during the 2010-11 season and scored 17 points (5g, 12a) in 55 games for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders. He is one of eight players to play in the USHL this season that is committed to Colorado College, joining Christian Heil (Chicago Steel), Alex Roos (Chicago Steel), Jaccob Slavin (Chicago Steel), Matt Hansen (Des Moines Buccaneers), Duggie Lagrone (Des Moines Buccaneers), Cody Bradley (Dubuque Fighting Saints), and Jared Hanson (Lincoln Stars).
Colorado College is a member of the WCHA and recently completed their season with an 18-16-2 record. A total of 17 USHL alumni were on the roster for the Tigers this season; Nick Dineen (Sioux Falls Stampede), Dakota Eveland (Omaha Lancers), Gabe Guentzel (Sioux Falls Stampede), Tim Hall (Ohio Junior Blue Jackets), Joe Howe (Waterloo Black Hawks), Alex Krushelnyski (Sioux City/Chicago), Joe Marciano (Omaha Lancers), Eamonn McDermott (Fargo Force), William Rapuzzi (Green Bay Gamblers), Jaden Schwartz (Tri-City Storm), Scott Winkler (Cedar Rapids RoughRiders), Aaron Harstad (Green Bay Gamblers), Peter Stoykewych (Des Moines Buccaneers), Jordan DiGiando (Dubuque/Cedar Rapids), Charlie Taft (Muskegon Lumberjacks), Scott Wamsganz (Dubuque/Waterloo), and Ian Young (Fargo/Chicago).
