Kearney, Neb. – Defenseman Chase Pilawski has joined the Tri-City Storm’s roster from the Waterloo Black Hawks, Head Coach and General Manager Bill Muckalt announced Wednesday. The 17-year-old is in his first full USHL season.
The addition gives Tri-City seven defensemen, 13 forwards and two goalies.
“We’d like to welcome Chase to Kearney and we’re excited to bring him in,” Muckalt said.
The Lake Superior State commit scored two goals and eight points in 40 games for the Black Hawks. The Storm has sixteen active commits to NCAA Division I schools.
Pilawski played in four games against Tri-City this season and recorded two points (1g, 1a). The native of Lutz, Florida scored his last league goal vs. the Storm on February 3 in a Waterloo victory.
