Omaha Lancers defenseman Kevin O'Connor (Trenton) is the latest Lancer to commit to a Division I school for this fall as the 20-year-old has given the nod to Western Michigan University of the CCHA.
“It's great to see the strides that Kevin has made in his two seasons with the Lancers, both on and off the ice," Omaha head coach Mike Hastings said. "I expect Kevin to be an impact player for the Broncos right away."
In 39 games this season, O'Connor has 21 points (5g, 16a). He is the 12th Lancer to commit to college hockey for next year.
