Former Maverick, NHL Player Scott Parse Earns Induction into Omaha Hockey Hall of Fame 

Scott Parse, former All-American and the all-time leading scorer for the University of Nebraska at Omaha, will be inducted into the Omaha Hockey Hall of Fame on February 23 at 11:30 a.m. at the Thompson Alumni Center. 

Parse, who scored 79 goals and had 118 assists during his 2003-07 Maverick career, earned first-team All-American honors in 2006 and second-team laurels in 2007. He went on to play for the Los Angeles Kings in the National Hockey League. 

A native of Portage, Michigan, Parse played junior hockey for the Tri-City Storm in the United States Hockey League. He played 159 games in his four-year career, capping his tenure with a record 24-goal season in 2006-07. He was twice nominated for the Hobey Baker Award as the top player in college hockey. 

A sixth-round draft choice by the Kings in 2004, Parse battled back injuries which limited his professional career. He was able to play one full season with the Kings in 2009-10, scoring 11 goals in 59 games. He played nine games for the 2011-12 Stanley Cup-winning Kings. 

Parse was inducted into the UNO Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016. 

Tickets for the luncheon are $25 each or $200 for a table of eight. Reservations may be made by calling 402-290-8678. Payment may be made at the door by cash or check.
