Forward Mike Huntebrinker of the USHL's Waterloo Black Hawks verbally committed for the fall of 2013, according to the Black Hawks' website. He'll play one more season for Waterloo.
Huntebrinker (pictured), 19, is a Chesterfield, Mo., native who just completed his rookie season in the USHL. Listed at 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, he finished the year with 17 goals and 17 assists in 54 games. During the Clark Cup playoffs, he had four goals and six assists in 13 games as Waterloo advanced to the finals where it lost to Green Bay.
"We asked Mike to do a lot of different things last season," Waterloo coach P.K. O'Handley said in a press release. "He rose to the occasion and was an important contributor when we needed more scoring near the end of the year."
Meanwhile, defenseman Hunter Warner, a soon-to-be junior at Eden Prairie, also committed to the Mavericks, his high school coach told MN Hockey Hub. The 6-3, 190-pounder had a goal and nine assists for the Eagles as a sophomore.
