Nick Seeler leaves Nebraska-Omaha after 2 seasons

Nick Laham

The 21 year-old has left for what the team is calling "personal reasons."

University of Nebraska-Omaha defenseman Nick Seeler has left the team for personal reasons less than two month before his junior season is slated to begin, the Mavericks announced Tuesday.

"Nick has chosen to leave the program at this time," said UNO head coach Dean Blais in a statement.  "We wish him well in the next chapter of his hockey career and his life."

Seeler, a 2011 fifth round pick of his hometown (Eden Prairie, MN) Minnesota Wild, finishes his Nebraska-Omaha career with 19 points (6G-13A) over 70 games. The 6'2", 192 lbs defenseman has also been no stranger to the penalty box, averaging close to a minor penalty (1.83) per game.

Nebraska-Omaha finished last season third in the inaugural NCHC with a 17-18-2 overall record.

Seeler's next plans are unknown at this time. The 21 year-old would be eligible to play at another Division 1 school in 2015-16.
