Nick Swaney, a 5-foot-8.75 sophomore from Lakeville South has committed to play his collegiate hockey at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

The '97 born forward led the Upper Midwest High School Elite League in scoring until he broke his kneecap while blocking a shot against Team Wisconsin during the season, but still managed to score a goal despite the injury.  The sophomore finished the season with with 12 goals and 8 assists in just 12 games, averaging  1.67 points-per-game among the midwest's top talent.

Swaney has a natural ability to set himself, as well as others, up in scoring positions and a great shot to compliment too.  At 150 pounds, Swaney has some weight to gain and growing to do, but as an underclassman in high school, he has some time.
