Let the early signings begin.

Just finished his Sophomore year and was their leading scorer.

Heard it straight from a players mouth this weekend, a Maverick will be signing as soon as their season is over.

Not feeling too concerned about the Gopher early departure thread heating up. Not sure if that's good or bad...

I think that's because we'll have approx. 6 weeks before we have to worry about any departures :dup: :dup:

Ranta is the only gopher I can think of that's even remotely a risk...I just can't see him as ready

To be fair, 'early' in that the season's not over yet even though Wisco and Notre Dame's are.

To me early means they still have eligibility left. These guys don't.

I have to think that whatever happens with coronavirus will impact signings. If the NHL season cancels then no need for as many recruits, right? Is least it might delay signings until late summer.

Safety first. Wash your hands and stay home if you can.

BTW -- thought it was interesting in Corey Pronman's chat on The Athletic this week he was asked if Caulfield should make the jump to the NHL now with Wisconsin's season being over. He suggested that he'd rather Caulfield head to Laval. Interesting perspective on UW from a prospect writer who talks to a lot of scouts. Now Montreal's GM has said on the record that Caulfield should stay in Madison.

I sense he's going to win B10 ROY, but despite being the second leading drafted freshman scorer in the country... he was still -3.

I don't think wings are necessarily always at fault for having a bad minus total, but despite his tremendous talent in the offensive zone, he gives away the puck a lot too.

I am a little shocked he cut his time in Madison short. Hopefully he will grow into his role on another team.

I'm done now.

I would have interest in Dhooghe. Eligible right away, probably an upgrade over Burke, Wait. Bring him in with Pitlick. Send Nevers and Huglen back to juniors. I’m sure we planned on bringing in Huglen, his injury has really lagged on. Never seen someone out so long from an injury that occurred during workout

The Gophers have had dinks before. Why not this specific dink?

It's not his dinkiness I have a problem with...it's that his name is "Dhooghe" and that he has a red stain that won't wash off.

LOL. If this was a few years ago, I would be more open to it, but I think our forward depth is ok. He would only slot in a bottom 6 or SMALLER role on this team. He does remind me of Cepis. A pest and an agitator though. The other question, will he be able to play next year as a transfer like Phillips, or would he have to sit out a year like most transfers do. Not worth the roster spot.

I believe either Jup or Vegoe mentioned on the podcast that Dhooghe has already graduated (or is on track to graduate this semester), so he would be eligible immediately.

I asked Todd Milewski about his status. Todd said he was unsure about the grad transfer thing, but he did say the NCAA may be considering a free 1 time transfer rule without penalty. I had never heard of that before, so good to know. Also, props to Todd for answering my question to him. He seems like a really nice guy, and I have always enjoyed his appearances on the GPL Podcast and his articles about college hockey.

Getting a college hockey team hasn't really helped Arizona State's reputation as a safety school.

Hopefully for Mackey's sake, the NHL comes back in some capacity this year and he's able to burn a year on his contract--and he plays well enough that that is to his benefit--because he was getting promised that before all of this happened.

I'd be (pleasantly) surprised if anyone else from MSU leaves early. Lots of great college hockey players, but not many pro prospects.

The only other one that I think could leave is nathan smith. At the beginning of the year, there was a potential he could be a one-and-done, but he was kind of underwhelming and his immaturity showed at various points in the season

Were you standing behind me a couple weeks ago when I was having that exact conversation with a friend at a game? He seemed like he had a fast rising trajectory early in the season, but he just found himself out a place and making mistakes in every game at the end.

I wasn't, but hastings at one point this season mentioned that he was set on the bench at the end of a.couple of games because his shoulders were sagging and he was getting frustrated. He made some mistakes that dont fly with this coach. I started watching at the end of the year and the seniors were stepping in trying to lead/encourage him.

I think the competition finally caught up with him. He dominated high school, but he cant just win on pure talent anymore.

What in the hell happened his last year of high school? Half the points of his previous year. Did they stop playing squirts?

In fairness to him, teams are probably going to focus their defense on a guy that's averaging almost 6 points per game and it's not realistic to keep it up

The only other flight risks at forward are Justin Richards, whose being pursued pretty hard (as a free agent) and sophomore Coke Koepke (a sophomore from Hermantown). My guess is that Dylan Samberg (on D) a junior & 2nd round Winnipeg draft choice will eventually sign, but the rest will stay, which may result in 2020 Mr Hockey winner Blake Biondi playing a full year of Juniors in USHL before arriving on campus in the Fall of 2021☝️

This most likely results in 2020 Mr Hockey winner Blake Biondi arriving on campus Fall 2020 (2 forward openings this Fall) Miller graduating & Richards signing.

Seem like a slam dunk that Tyochnick ends up at UMD, plenty of opportunity to play, and track record of developing D-men.

Gallatin hasn’t graduated high school yet...so he can’t come in Fall 2020. They graduated 2 D & 2 signed early & they were carrying 8 D, they have 4 back. Kelley is coming in 100% from NTDP. It looks like Kaiser will be coming in too. They will need to add at least one more, likely two. Gotz played USHL and is a likely candidate. Oberle is also a possibility, a HS senior who played NAHL. Will Francis would have been part of the 2020 class, but sadly he is battling a very serious health issue.

Has Gallatin gotten any bigger? Watched him as a freshman at White Bear and he had a ton of skill.

Man, coulda sworn Gallatin was a year older. Feel like the kid committed 3 years ago although I guess that’s how it worked back then. The Francis thing is a major bummer. Hopefully he gets well. Plenty of options. Reminds me a lot of 2017 when everyone graduated except Wolff. Tough to repeat the results but we’ll see.

Not really. Haven’t seen him much but I think he’s still 5’7 or 5’8. He’s beefed up a little but still can’t be much more than 170 or so
