As the season winds down, the Omaha Lancers deflect pucks and zoom past opponents who are vying to push the Lancers out of first place in the West Conference standings. From the second balcony, fans will witness forward Jimmy Murray dart into defensive seams to dish a pass or whip a shot that lands in the mayor’s popcorn. Murray’s prolific scoring leads the Lancers and vaults him to near the top of the USHL stat charts, an offensive output that lessens the load for Yale-bound goalie Alex Lyon.
First place has not been easy for the Lancers roster to hold, as they’ve snatched victory in more than a dozen one-goal games. This season signals a remarkable turnaround from its first season 25 years ago, when Omaha debuted with an impressively woeful 0–48–0 record.
