Chris Romaine to Green Bay, Lancers Acquire Draft Pick Package

January 31, 2023 – United States Hockey League (USHL)Omaha Lancers News Release

OMAHA, NE. – The Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League (USHL) have announced the acquisition of a draft pick package from the Green Bay Gamblers consisting of the following picks:

2023 5th Round, Phase I

2023 3rd Round, Phase II

2024 2nd Round, Phase II (Conditional)

Along with the draft picks above the Lancers have also received future considerations in exchange of defenseman, Chris Romaine and a 2023 10th round, phase I draft pick.

Romaine, 18, of Boston, Massachusetts was drafted by the Omaha Lancers 22nd overall in the 2nd round of the 2022 USHL Phase II Draft, and was drafted 193rd overall in the 6th round of the NHL Draft in the same year by the Colorado Avalanche.

Romaine came to the Lancers from Milton Academy where he notched 22 points (9G-13A-22P) in just 18 games played as he split the season with playing 23 games with the South Shore Kings 18U AAA Prep team where he gathered 8 points (2G-6A-8P) in 23 total games.

The Massachusetts Native entered the 2022-23 season in recovery from a back injury, sidelining him for the first 12 matchups of the season, but was able to make his USHL debut on November 11th, 2022. A game which resulted in a 5-2 Lancers loss to the Lincoln Stars on Military Appreciation Night.

Due to his early absence while being injured, Romaine only suited up for 20 games with Omaha, picking up 5 points (0G-5A-5P), a -7 rating(+/-) and 16 penalty minutes.

This season, the Green Bay Gamblers are showing significant improvement from the 2021-22 season where they finished with a 23-34-3-2 record for 51 points, good for 8th in the eastern conference. But this season, the Gamblers find themselves with a 21-11-1-1 record through 34 games played, good for 44 points as they sit in second place in the east, only three points back of the conference leading, Chicago Steel.

The Omaha Lancers thank Chris Romaine for his hard work this season and wish him the best of luck in Green Bay and in his future at Providence College!
