The Motor City Machine has announced that second-year forward Matt Lipinski has committed to Northeastern University (Hockey East) for the upcoming season.
Lipinski, a 20-year-old from Faribault, Minn., totaled seven goals for 31 points during the 2007-08 season with the Southern Minnesota Express, which relocated to Michigan (Motor City) in March.
“We’re very proud of Matt,” said Machine coach-GM Matt Romaniski. “He’s worked hard for the opportunity and I’m confident he’ll have a great career at Northeastern, both on the ice and in the classroom.”
In addition, former defenseman Gabe Guentzel has committed to Colorado College (WCHA) for the 2008-09 season. The 20-year-old from Woodbury, Minn., recorded three goals for 23 points for the Express in 2006-07.
