Press Release

The Green Bay Gamblers announced that forward Travis Lynch will continue his hockey career next season at the University of Michigan.

The second-year USHL forward has tallied 13 points (8g, 5a) while playing in all 33 games for the Gamblers this season. He has scored a goal in each of last three games. Lynch has also been one of the top penalty killers helping the team to a League best 92.4% while shorthanded, including turning aside 35-of-36 power play opportunities on home ice. The 19-year-old native of White Lake, Michigan collected 22 points (6g, 16a) in 58 games for the Gamblers in 2009-10, plus contributed three points (2g, 1a) in 12 games during the Gamblers' run to the Clark Cup title. Both his playoff goals were game-winners.

Four other current USHL players are committed to play collegiate hockey at the University of Michigan; Justin Selman (Des Moines Buccaneers), Alex Guptill (Waterloo Black Hawks), John Gibson (Team USA), and Connor Carrick (Team USA).
