Quick look at Lincoln's affiliate roster

There are still 9 games remaining in the 2014-15 regular season, but I thought I'd post a quick article reviewing what Lincoln's affiliate roster looks like right now.  

The vast majority of the players listed below were prior draft picks of the Stars.  The two exceptions:  Dylan Malmquist was acquired by Lincoln in the Tom Marchin trade.  Justin Richards was acquired by Lincoln as a "free agent" after the Stars lost 2014 Futures Draft pick (F) Sam Field to the OHL.

Quite a few players noted here will be in a Lincoln Stars uniform next season, and some have already donned the black and blue.

(D) Luke Jaycox and (F) Jack Badini are both in town finishing the season with the Stars.  (F) Ethen Frank was called up for one game back in December.  (F) Chris Klack started the season with Lincoln and played in 22 games before he went back to Canada.  All four of those players should play a big part on next year's team, in my opinion.

For those unaware, each USHL team's affiliate roster consists of two players born in 1996, six players born in 1997, and ten players born in 1998.  Lincoln only has five players born in 1997 on their affiliate roster.

You can click on the player names below to be taken directly to their Twitter account.  The only player I could not find a Twitter account for was (D) Anthony Wyse.

Ok, here we go.
