With his sparkling two points last year.

So when is Versich going to commit to the Gophers or UMD/UND/Kato/SCSU?

If true, this has got to be the highest # of potential 1st-round draft picks in one recruiting class with all of them expected to be on the 2020-21 roster:
  • Owen Power - projected top 10 (maybe top 5) draft pick in 2021
  • Kent Johnson - projected top 10 (maybe top 5) draft pick in 2021
  • Matthew Beniers - projected top 15 draft pick in 2021
  • Thomas Bordeleau - likely late-1st/2nd round pick in 2020
  • Brendan Brisson - likely late-1st/2nd round pick in 2020

Jake Martin to Wisconsin. Thought he would be a nice option if Ratzlaff opts to play football.

He has Knies at 31. His knock on both Lucius and Knies is average foot speed.

Sounds pretty typical for the Gopher forwards overall for the last five years or so. Walker one of the few exceptions.

Doesn’t help playing home games on a cavernous ice sheet where foot speed is at a premium. They’ve got to do something about Mariucci...and not 10 years from now.

If the forwards were strong skaters as a unit the big ice sheet could be an advantage. In college hockey the D units are not that developed yet that they can't get burned.

The UMN Athletic Department is about $100M in debt right now and are in financial trouble right now with coronavirus. They are like an investor who happened to leverage themeselves at the wrong time. Their donors have to do something about that, not 10 years from now and they are getting so much heat for gymnastics, tennis and T&F for some reason.

I'm sure they have tried from the beginning, and I'm surprised he has stuck with it. But they are giving a spot to his older brother, and I believe there is some family connection to the school as well. Only thing that could change is with the NHL starting to come into play this year.

Agree, the Gophers are currently loaded on the blue line & the style of play and size of home rink at Notre Dame appears to be a better for Boltmann.

[Looks like another nice pickup from a non-traditional location for msu. And to get ahead of you a-holes, he's not even 29-ysars-old. :D

Saw this on GH: Saw a note in the District 196 Spotlight magazine that gets sent to families in the district that Ratzlaff will be playing both football and hockey for Wisconsin.

I didnt realize he was going to play both.

He wont. Football isnt over until January and spring practice usually starts in March. No way that happens.

Missed this earlier.

I remember this kid in the tournament. Ungainly stride like a giraffe, but really good hands for a big kid. I hope he does well.

Sean Farrell (Harvard) is going to break the USHL record for points in this millennium. He has 101 in 53 games and needs three more to tie Kevin Roy (104 in 59GP).

Steel teammate Matthew Coronato (also Harvard) is trying to become the second this millennium to hit 50 goals. He has 48 in 51. Roy had 54 in 59.

Two big reasons I have Harvard as a top 10 team this year.

Farrell 100% would have been playing college this year if Harvard had a season. Coronato is still just a high school senior so what he's doing is super impressive and has gotten him into the first round conversation. That Chicago team and also Harvard next year should be fun to follow.

UND gets their second goalie for next year, a Swede that has been playing third tier professional hockey there.

I don't know how he's eligible.

Scott Morrow, potential first rounder, seems to be flipping from UND to the national champs because UND wanted to delay him a year. UND has likely prioritized Brent Johnson, whose stock has been climbing rapidly and could be drafted ahead of Morrow.

Now that's good news. Did the Fighting Hawks potentially grab one too many defensemen from the transfer portal? If the risk was losing Morrow completely in asking him to defer a year, I'd much rather bring both him and Brent Johnson in instead of getting two final years of eligibility from either Chris Jandric or Brady Ferner.

Unless they feel that Morrow isn't ready after playing another year of hockey that is a step down from where he should be playing, that decision is a no brainer to me. I mean, we are talking about a potential first round talent vs. transfers from Alaska-Fairbanks and RPI, neither of whom played in a game the entire 2020-21 season.

Assume this means Stramel accelerated school…

Judging by his Instagram seems Whitelaw will go to Wisconsin also.

Stramels high school teammate at Rosemount Luke Levandowski has been committed to wisco for awhile so not a ton of surprise.

Not too worried, we have a very skilled and very deep forward prospect pipeline.

He probably accelerated to catch up in grade with his teammates and not have to play a year in the USHL before going to college.

This is sad. I feel bad for him having to play at Wisconsin. Wisconsin is going to screw him up. :crazy:

My back yard borders said town. I can go throw some dog turds at it if it makes you feel better! :mrgreen:

Although the new neighbors back there have a beehive on their septic mound just across the line so I don’t want to get too close. 🐝

Mason Wheeler committed to Mankato. Not sure for this season or next. He's a D man, and not sure he was on the radar but we know we'll need some replacements next summer. He went to Rosemount, though, so he was never really an option.

He'll be 20 when the season starts, so I would think a couple more years before he comes in.
