Congrats to Ralfs Freibergs!

Per the Lincoln Stars Twitter account, defenseman Ralfs Freibergs has committed to play hockey at Bowling Green State University next season.  Click here to read more.

Through 32 games with the Stars this season, the native of Liga, Latvia has scored 18 points (6g, 12a) and is +6.  8 of his 18 points have come on the powerplay where Freibergs is an integral part of the PP unit.  Ralfs is the very definition of a "powerplay quarterback," as he in charge of distributing the puck to the players on the ice whom he feels has the best opportunity to score.  Freibergs is a big reason why the Stars have the third best PP percentage in the USHL.

Freibergs was also named "USHL Defensive Player of the Week" in late November of 2011 when he scored three goals over the course of three games.

Ralfs will join his current teammate Brent Tate at Bowling Green State University this fall.  Tate committed to BGSU in July of 2011.

Congrats to Ralfs!  Very well deserved.  I know all of us in Lincoln will be following the progress of both Ralfs and Brent next season at Bowling Green.
