Lake Orion's Albers chooses Niagara

Omaha Lancers defenseman Kevin Albers has committed to play collegiate hockey at Niagara University.

Albers recently completed his third USHL season where he collected 10 points (10a) in 43 total games. He was acquired by the Lancers midway through the 2010-11 campaign after starting the season with the Muskegon Lumberjacks. The defenseman spent his first two USHL seasons with the Green Bay Gamblers and was part of the team that captured the Clark Cup last season.

Albers is a 19-year-old native of Lake Orion and has collected 22 points (4g, 18a) and a plus-39 rating in 133 career USHL games.

Four other players who spent the 2010-11 season in the USHL are committed to Niagara University: Doug Clifford (Des Moines Buccaneers), Sam Alfieri (Lincoln Stars), Isaac Kohls (Muskegon Lumberjacks) and Chris Lochner (Muskegon Lumberjacks).
