Kaneland’s Lekkas will pass on USHL
Despite being drafted in the United States Hockey League Futures Draft by the Sioux Falls Stampede in May, 16-year-old Stefanos Lekkas isn’t ready to join the team yet.
A goaltender from Elburn, Lekkas didn’t make the under-20 team in Sioux Falls, S.D., this month, but said the tryout experience went “really well.” The tryouts lasted four days from June 1-4, and consisted of practices, scrimmages and games to evaluate the players.
“There were kids from age 16 to 20 at the tryout,” said Lekkas, a Kaneland student. “And since I’m only 16, there’s no rush to join the team just yet.”
