SIOUX CITY | Wednesday morning, the Sioux City Musketeers announced they acquired forward Bauer Neudecker from the Dubuque Fighting Saints, in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2018 United States Hockey League Phase II Draft.
Neudecker is a 5-foot-7, 166-pound native of St. Louis Park, Minn., who recorded six assists and a +3 rating in 24 games as a right wing for the Fighting Saints. Last season, he scored 39 goals and added 34 assists in the last of his four high school years.
Neudecker had career totals of 96 goals and 99 assists for the Orioles. He then played for the North American Hockey League’s Fairbanks Ice Dogs, collecting five goals and four assists in 21 games.
“We look forward to adding Bauer’s ability and character,” said Musketeers Coach Luke Strand. “He’s a competitive player with great offensive instincts. The move adds to our growing forward depth.”
Neudecker will play his first game as a Musketeer Friday night at Tri-City. Winners of five straight games, Sioux City (10-11-3) will also play at Lincoln Saturday night.
