Stars Acquire Forward Austin Magera From Chicago Steel
LINCOLN, Neb. - The Lincoln Stars have acquired forward Austin Magera from the Chicago Steel in exchange for a 2018 Phase II 11th Round Pick, the team announced today.
"We think Austin's skill set and experience will be a good addition to our club," said Stars GM Jon Hull.
Magera, 19, played 28 games with the Steel this season, totalling four goals and five assists for nine points with 24 penalty minutes. The Sacred Heart University commit made his USHL debut on October 6 and scored goals in each of his first two games. The Swanee, Ga. product was selected 129th overall (8th Round) by the Steel in the 2017 USHL Phase II Draft following 35 points (17 goals, 18 assists) through 41 games between Lawrence Academy and Neponset Valley River Rats.
Magera will be available for this weekend's games against the Sioux Falls Stampede and Des Moines Buccaneers.
The Stars return to the Ice Box on Friday, Feb. 16 at 7:35 p.m. against the Omaha Lancers. Group and jump-in season tickets for the 2017-18 season are available by calling 402-474-7827. The Stars mobile app is also available in the iTunes and Google Play stores with "tap to buy" tickets, in-game push notifications and a rewards program that puts fans in the skates of a player.
