A week after inking University of Denver defenceman Dakota Mermis to an Ontario Hockey League contract, the London Knights appear to be dipping into the NCAA’s talent pool once again.

Goaltender Anthony Stolarz, a 1994-born Philadelphia Flyers draft pick, is “expected to sign” with London, according to a press release posted on the University of Nebraska-Omaha’s website.

The Knights have yet to confirm the potential signing.

“He has been making a very challenging transition from the North American Hockey League to the WCHA, and we, as coaches, saw good progress from him in the first half of the season,” UNO coach Dean Blais said in the release. “But ultimately, it’s his decision where he wants to play, and we wish him the best in the next chapter of his career.”

Top centre Alex Broadhurst was committed to UNO before jetting to the Forest City this year.

Stolarz, 18, was 2-5-0 in eight appearances as an NCAA rookie.

The native of Jackson, N.J., was a second round selection in the 2012 NHL draft.
