Omaha Lancers goaltender Cole Bruns, who broke the USHL record for consecutive shutout minutes earlier this season, has committed to the United States Military Academy at West Point. The Prairie Grove, Ill. native is in his second season with the Lancers. He is 9-3-1 with a 1.77 goals against average and a .934 save percentage. Bruns has six shutouts in 13 stars.
Forward Tyler Pham, a one-time Denver recruit, has also committed to playing college hockey at Army. The Fort Collins, Colo. native is in his third full season in the USHL with the Indiana Ice organization. Pham has two goals and four assists so far this season. Pham is small, but elusive and quick. He tallied eight goals and added 16 assists last season.
According to a tweet sent out by Pham, the two are good friends.
Couldn't be more excited, and proud, to be playing hockey at West Point next year with my best friend @ColeBruns35.— Tyler Pham (@phaminal17) November 19, 2013
