Merrimack received a verbal commitment from 2000-born goaltender Christian Stoever on Tuesday. Stoever, a Michigan native, announced the commitment on Twitter.

Stoever played last season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the NAHL, posting a .902 save percentage and 3.26 goals-against average in 36 games. Stoever is going to move up to the USHL this upcoming season, and will play for the Cedar Rapids Roughriders.

Stoever had an electric ending of his NAHL season this past spring, starting nine games for the WBS Knights in the playoffs, posting a .949 save percentage and 1.89 GAA in those nine playoff starts.

The 6-foot-3 goalie played youth hockey for Honeybaked and Victory Honda, two of the most respected teams in the midwest. Stoever also suited up for USA Hockey at the Select 16 (2017) and Select 17 (2018) Festival Camps.

“I picked Merrimack because of the coaching staff,” Stoever told MiHockey. “Coach Scott Borek and Curtis Carr are making a lot of changes for the upcoming years and I wanted to be a part of it. Scott is also very passionate about bringing a national championship to Merrimack and had me felt like I can potentially play a major role in achieving that.”
