KEARNEY, NE – The Tri-City Storm has acquired forward Tucker Brockett and a 2010 first-round draft pick from the Lincoln Stars in exchange for Storm forward and captain Josh Berge.
Storm Head Coach/General Manager Drew Schoneck announced the trade Thursday afternoon.
Brockett, a native of Shaker Heights, Ohio, had four goals and six assists in 20 games this season for the Stars. He is committed to play for Princeton University in the Fall of 2011, which means he will have at least one more season in the USHL.
“Brockett is an energy guy that plays feisty, as well as physical and has a nose for the net,” said Schoneck about the 5-foot-10, 180 pound forward. “He’s a smart player with good vision and can make plays.”
Last season, Brockett played for the Cleveland Barons Midget Major team and had 25 goals and 81 points in 44 games. He was second in the nation in scoring in Tier I - Midget Major Hockey.
Brockett will wear number ‘16’ for the Storm on Friday night against his former team, the Stars.
In addition to acquiring Brockett, the Storm acquired Lincoln’s first-round draft pick for the 2010 USHL Entry Draft, which gives Tri-City two first-round picks.
This season, Berge had 12 points in 19 games for the Storm (7-8-4, 18 pts). However, he only had two goals out of the 12 points.
Schoneck added, “Obviously, when you are in a funk changes have to be made and this will hopefully jump start us going into Christmas and beyond.”
