Kearney, Neb. – The Tri-City Storm has acquired forward Logan Drevitch from the Muskegon Lumberjacks in exchange for defenseman Jack McNeely, Head Coach and General Manager Bill Muckalt announced Monday.
A second-year USHL forward, Drevitch has four goals, nine points, a plus-two rating and 51 penalty minutes in 19 games this season. The 18-year-old winger from Middleborough, Massachusetts is committed to Merrimack College, stands 5-foot-10 and weighs 165 pounds.
McNeely, 19, was named Storm Captain at the beginning of the season. In 17 games this season, McNeely recorded an assist and a minus-four rating. Last season, McNeely played in 59 regular season games and 11 playoff games as the Storm marched to its first Clark Cup.
“We want to thank Jack for all of his hard work and contributions,” said Muckalt. “We appreciate everything he’s given our team since the start of last season and wish him the best of luck in Muskegon.”
