DES MOINES, IA- The Buccaneers announced the free-agent signing of third year USHL Forward Benito Posa (1999) today.

The Lake Superior State commit has 120 USHL games under his belt and has accrued 19 goals and 21 assists for 40 points, as well as 292 penalty minutes in his USHL career. Last year with Green Bay was his best offensively, as he scored 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points in 30 games played for the Gamblers. This season for Green Bay, Posa notched four goals and six assists for ten points in 28 games played, which also included 61 penalty minutes.

“We would like to welcome Benito to the Buccaneers’ family,” GM Tom Mannino said. “Posa brings an in your face competitive edge to our lineup. His veteran experience in our league as a hard-nosed player who can contribute offensively is hard to find. We look forward to his impact as a Buccaneer on his way to a bright future at Lake Superior State.”

Posa will join his new teammates for tonight’s matchup with Cedar Rapids at home. It’s “Miller Lite Night” so we’ll have two-for-one 24 oz. Miller & Coors products on sale, as well as White Claws. Puck drops at 7:05 pm and the gates open at 6:15 pm.
