Forward Luke Posner of the Maryland Black Bears has committed to play for Bethel University. Bethel University is part of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) and is an NCAA Division III school. The university’s hockey program was established in 1989 and has been a member of the MIAC since 1978.
As a result of his commitment, Luke will be foregoing his final year of Junior Hockey and returning to his home state of Minnesota. The 6’2, 180-pound Forward was a key contributor to the Black Bears during their Inaugural Season by scoring 7 goals with 4 assists in 35 games played. Bethel University will be getting a player who can contribute to their institution on and off the ice immediately.
“The Maryland Black Bears is a special team surrounded by a one of a kind community,” said Former Maryland Black Bears Forward Luke Posner. “I would like to thank everyone who made my last year of Junior Hockey so memorable, especially my outstanding billet family, the coaches, players, ownership, staff, and Black Bear Nation. It was a great experience to be part of a new franchise’s Inaugural Season, and am excited to watch the Black Bears continue to grow and prosper as they establish themselves in the NAHL.”
“We are happy to see that Luke has committed to Bethel University, in his home state of Minnesota,” said Maryland Black Bears Head Coach Clint Mylymok. “We would like to thank Luke for his commitment to the Maryland Black Bears in our Inaugural Season, and wish him nothing but the best as he embarks onto the next phase of his academic and hockey career.”
