U18 Goal Tender Lukas Malant was called up to the Corpus Christi IceRays for the remainder of the 22-23 season. Malant played his first game for the IceRays on November 11th. Since then he's played 16 games amassing a 3.68 GAA and a .908 Save Percentage. While the IceRays have had their share of struggles this season, Lukas has been a promising goalie of the future. He left the U18 Bucs with a 7-4 record, a 2.23 GAA, and a .927 Save Percentage.
"Lukas was ready for junior hockey when he got to Des Moines. Everyday he treated this like a true pro and his call up was more than deserving. We are in this business for the kids and in season advancements are part of the process and we couldn't be happier for him." - Coach Nick Sova
