Goaltender Christian Stoever is no longer committed to Merrimack, according to Jeff Cox of the New England Hockey Journal. Per the report, it was a mutual parting of ways.
Stoever, a ’00-born goalie, was slated to arrive at Merrimack this season but after arriving on campus in the summer, he moved back to the USHL and the Des Moines Buccaneers.
In six games this season, Stoever has a 3.07 GAA and a .913 save percentage; last season with the Youngstown Phantoms, Stoever posted a 3.78 GAA and an .866 save percentage.
Des Moines ‘00 goalie Christian Stoever no longer committed to Merrimack in mutual parting of ways. Named USHL Goaltender of the Week earlier today. Warriors have 3 freshman goalies so move makes sense for both sides.
