Knies with a rocket!

Amazing thing there is if you just watch the goalie he never faded toward the Knies' teammate in anticipation of the pass and yet that shot still completely fooled him.

And Samoskevich (UM) first round at 31. This year there will be 31 picks in the first round because AZ had to forfeit theirs.

Power will be the #1 pick. Now we will see if he goes back, which I think he will. Ottawa will take Morrow (UND) with their early second round pick if he's still available.

Says the top 13 are pretty locked. So if Lucius goes past 13, he's probably falling for some reason.

I am beginning to wonder if the Gophers should even play next year since Michigan will have all of those high draft picks. You know having high draft picks automatically results in championships. :wink: :ahhh:

They are reloading the next year, too. I'd say they have a ~75% chance of at least one trophy the next three years. The Gophers have similar odds for that same scenario.

Charlie Strobel had the Gordie Howe hat trick last night for Waterloo. Maybe he can bring some of the grit some of you feel the Gophers need in a couple of years. :wink:

Well if he's a top 5 pick he will be a huge part to the team's success whether that's for one year or two.

Thank you, Bonin21, for your many contributions to the Forum, and specifically news all about Gopher hockey - much appreciated.
For the upcoming season, so many moving parts; it's hard to they keep track of who will make the final opening game lineup, and who will be asked to play either another year of juniors, or prove that they belong "now" to a more major role (3rd line ?) or who is more key in the present to the teams' success. Seems to me, the Gophers have options, with their depth, and are in a good position to have a very successful season!

From all the video replays posted here over the last number of months, it sure looks like we'll have a few more pure goal scorers in the lineup...something our team could really use in my opinion.

It’s fun to see three of the six guys coming in next year already playing together at Fargo and another two playing together at Tri City. Not going to read too much into it but it can’t hurt if a few of these guys are already really familiar with each other. Huglen and Broz in particular seem to be clicking.

Fargo Force coach talks about Huglen, Broz and Boynton. He is really high on Huglen. Just have to ignore the coach is a Lamoureux and the typical Jess Myers off the wall questions.

Probably wouldn’t have hurt to wait a year but there weren’t a ton of great players he would’ve been paired with, not to mention the forward talent those years was rock bottom.

I agree, he definitely had the ability, but was undersized and could have used a year or two in juniors. Probably would have been a completely different player in college had he done so. Was he one that accelerated to join a year early? Or did he just come in as an 18 year old freshman.

I believe Ness accelerated, though he was old for his grade to begin with. He essentially accelerated to join his peers/enter college after his draft year, though a year in the USHL would have been undoubtedly good for him. As a 2nd Round pick he had more ability to press the issue.

Yes. Good vs meeting expectations are two different things. He was a good hockey player for the Gophers on bad teams.

No but I don't think he was bad here, especially if we consider that he was surrounded with bad teammates. I don't remember who exactly he got paired with but looking back at the D back then he most likely was dragging around some anchor to his right. There's also only so much the D can do when the forwards can't score or drive possession very well. Towards the end Tony Lucia was one of the top scorers on the team (and one of the hardest workers imo) whereas he was (I think?) a fourth liner back when the Wheeler goal happened. Just goes to show what happened to the forward depth after 2008.

Brennan Boynton broke a Musketeer player's stick after he got run a bit when it was 4-0 and one of the sticks was laying around, then Chase Bradley ran him again... a scrum broke out and Boynton got involved... fun times.

Hope USHL and HockeyTv don't mind... but fun game to watch:

So, Broten, Ness and Huglen, three Aarons from the same high school. Have the Gophers had a non-Roseau Aaron? If they have, l’m drawing a blank.

So, Broten, Ness and Huglen, three Aarons from the same high school. Have the Gophers had a non-Roseau Aaron? If they have, l’m drawing a blank.
First one that comes to my mind is Aaron Miskovich out of Grand Rapids...

The above convo got me searching and a few unimportant random findings:

-The Gophers haven't had a regularly starting G wear the 1 since Frazee
-Far fewer players in history have worn the numbers 25-29 compared to all lower numbers

When you fill out the numbers starting from 1 for so long it's no surprise 25+ won't have many players over history.

I believe Ranta was the first player to go outside of 1-29 in a long time.

I get that the Gophers have stuck to traditional 1-35 hockey numbers (30-35 for goalies). But I hadn’t heard of the team filling out the roster starting at 1 and moving up. I always thought 2-29 were a free for all.

Fargo and Chicago advance to the Clark Cup Final. Broz is tied with Chicago's Coronado in post season points.

Saying "fill" wasn't the right term, but I meant they weren't allowed to go 30+, and 26-29 are pretty crappy hockey numbers. We need a 91, the best hockey number.

Will be an uphill battle because Chicago is a machine, but they've had a solid postseason regardless.

Fargo shuts out high scoring Chicago in game 1 of the Clark Cup. Huglen with a goal. Boynton is still suspended, and it will be interesting if he gets his starting job after the other goalie has won the last 2 games by shutout. Game 2 is tonight in Chicago.

Last Gopher with this much hype?

Reilly?

Middlestadt?

This kid feels like he's more advanced than CM when he came in after high school.

I could almost argue that the last one at this level of hype was Kessel. Bjugstad and Rau were pretty hyped as well because of what they did in high school. But again, I love and hype all of the incoming recruits. :wink:

Definitely Mittelstadt. People are forgetting how obsessed everyone was with him during but mostly before his time here

Unfortunately for Mittelstadt he has got to be one of the best examples of “could have used another year or two in college”. Would have benefited Minnesota, Casey and probably the Sabres. But intelligence and competency don’t seem to be traits valued by the ones in charge at Buffalo. It seems they saw that he had a decent season with the Gophs and a really good World Junior tournament and got him to Buffalo ASAP with zero forward thinking.

I'm thinking Kessel. He was as "can't miss" as anyone the Gophers had since Vanek.

Kessel - Eric Johnson - Casey Mittelstadt

I would argue that those players had more hype than Lucious though, but Chaz could be better than them.
