The Chicago Steel's Robbie Stucker is heading back home.

Stucker currently plays for the Steel of the USHL. In 22 games this season, Stucker has scored three goals and pitched in with 10 assists for a total of 13 points on the season. 

He will join a University of Minnesota team next season that has been a perennial power and consistently competes for championships.
