Lincoln Stars goaltender Kevin Murdock has committed to play collegiate hockey at Lake Superior State University beginning next season.

Murdock compiled a 29-15-4 record this season for the Stars. The 29 victories were the second most in the USHL. He appeared in 52 games, played over 2,926 minutes, and made 1,388 saves – ranking third in all three categories among league goaltenders.

Murdock posted six straight wins from November 5-19, which included two shutouts. He earned five total shutouts during the 2010-11 regular season. The 20-year-old from Bradenton, Fla., put together a 9-2-0 record over his last 12 games of the season, helping the Stars earn a playoff berth.

It was the third USHL season for Murdock after spending two previous seasons with the Stars (2007-09) and then last year with Minnesota State. He was selected to compete in the 2009 USHL All-Star Game and earned postseason honors with a spot on the 2008-09 All-USHL Second Team.
