Nebraska-Omaha picked up two new defenseman for the future. The first is Northwood Prep defenseman Nick Cecere, who is originally from West Des Moines, Iowa.
The other is St. Louis Jr. Blues defenseman Brian O'Rourke. He was selected by Green Bay in the USHL Future's Draft this fall, and played two games with GB while defenseman David Makowski was at the World Jr. A Challenge.
Both defensemen will join the Mavericks in either 2010 or 2011.
Lake Superior also had commitments from Ben Power and Kellen Ainsworth. Who knew?
Also, Cornell got a verbal commitment from Ben Thomson, who looks like a top '93 prospect from Ontario.
