Lincoln Stars News Release

The United States Hockey League (USHL) announced today that Stars forward Adam Kleber has been named to the All-Academic Team for the 2023-24 season for his performance in the classroom.

He recorded a 3.9 GPA in four years of high school. Kleber is committed to play at Minnesota Duluth and spent the last two seasons with the Stars.

"It's awesome to be recognized for the All-Academic Team," Kleber said. "School has always been something I've taken a lot of pride in to give myself the best opportunity so it's great to get this award."

Kleber finished second among USHL defensemen with 125 shots led all Stars defensemen with 26 points (5+21). Kleber was honored as one of the top American draft prospects with an invite to the Chipotle All-American Game in Plymouth, Mich. back in January.

The Chaska, Minn. native has appeared in 82 games over the last two seasons with the Stars, including in 56 games with Lincoln a year ago as the youngest member of the team. He recorded 17 points (4+13) in 28 games at Chaska High School in 2021-22 in his only season of high-school hockey. Kleber represented the United States at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup last August and helped the Americans win bronze.

Kleber appeared on all three of NHL Central Scouting's Draft Rankings this season, first receiving a 'C' rating in Central Scouting's Preliminary Draft Watch List in the fall and then being ranked the 60th-ranked North American skater on the Midseason Rankings. He finished at the 34th spot on the Final Rankings last month and projects as a second-round pick in late June.
