Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Duluth, Minn. native and Nebraska-Omaha commit Jake Randolph has been named the United States Hockey League (USHL) forward of the year, the league announced on Monday afternoon.
Randolph led the USHL in scoring this season with 86 points coming on 26 goals and 60 assists, with his assist total setting a new USHL Tier 1 era (2002-present) single-season record.
“Jake was a constant on the scoresheet for the Lancers this season and a shining example of the elite offensive talent in the League,” USHL President and Commissioner Skip Prince said. “After a solid first year in the USHL, he became a dominant player this year and helped lead the Omaha Lancers to an outstanding season."
Randolph's 86 points are the most by an Omaha Lancers player in the Tier 1 era and the third-most all-time for that franchise. That point total also almost doubled from his first year in the league, when he amassed 44 points coming on 13 goals and 31 assists.
The former Duluth East standout will continue his career next season at the Division I collegiate level with Nebraska-Omaha.
