Danny Nelson’s brother Henry is committed to Notre Dame as well.

Also read we are high on Jimmy Clark’s list.

I noticed Jimmy Clark has been playing with the U17 NTDP squad since Edina's season ended. Wonder if he'll try to join the U18 team next year.

The U17 team brought up 4-5 kids recently. My guess is he will be back at Edina next year then maybe skip his senior year.

They're both smaller guys.

We played Warroad this season, not sure if Marvin-Cordes was even the best player on his team. :shock:

IMO top targets for class of 2023 (committing starting 8/1). 1 being a target for every team in the country, and the rest having MN ties.
1. Adam Fantilli (May be eligible to commit now as a Canadian 11th grader. Brother going to, you guessed it, UM.)
2. Gracyn Sawchyn
3. Charlie Stramel

Yes, but I've said many times non-Minnesotans are accepted if they are potential stars like Vanek/Kessel/Haula/Ranta. Top 3 round picks or point per game players in college. We don't need non Minnesotan third string goalies and fourth liners.

But you can't then be surprised if Michigan is getting a bunch of top recruits. They are the ones out there recruiting everywhere outside of MN.

You even said Adam Fantilli has a brother at Michigan, and that may also draw him to Michigan. Not only does his brother play there, but he and his family are already familiar with the program and the coaching staff. If MN passes on the brother, because he isn't a potential star (I don't know if he is or not) then we also hurt our chances with Adam.

Your just less likely to get star recruits from elsewhere if you're not out recruiting like Michigan.

I am not saying I disagree with you either. But I am not obsessed with Michigan commits

I don’t think we need a lot of “top end recruits” that’s how we end up like BU and Michigan who have done absolutely nothing in terms of postseason success with those high end nhl draft picks. 1 or 2 per recruiting class is fine but in my opinion you don’t want a class of just first rounders that dip after a year.

Cuz the tournament is a crapshoot does not make their strategy a bad one. Michigan is putting together what I believe will be the roster with the most first round picks ever. And reloading the year after that. At some point one of those teams will win four in a row. I expect them to win at least two of the next five regular season championships. I expect the Gophers to win at least one. And the other two could be those two teams or someone else.

Also, we have yet to see if ANY of the Michigan guys dip after just one year.

I'll take watching high-end skill each weekend throughout the year and take our chances in the tournament as opposed to loading up on 25-year-old role players from Moose Jaw, Canada built to win the NCAA Pageant.

Agreed but obviously there’s an area in between that the gophers are at right now that seems to be working out.

It helped that they got two years out of the best college hockey player of the past like 15 years.

Colorado College captain Grant Cruikshank transferring to Gophers

Colorado College hockey captain Grant Cruikshank, a Hobey Baker nominee this past season, is transferring to the Gophers. Colorado College hockey captain Grant Cruikshank, a Hobey Baker nominee this past season, is transferring to the Gophers.

Colorado College hockey captain Grant Cruikshank is transferring to the Gophers.

"Thanks to CC hockey for a memorable 3 years," Cruikshank wrote on Twitter on Monday. "I couldn't be more excited to announce I am transferring to Minnesota. I can't wait to get started!"

Cruikshank, a 5-11 forward from Delafield, Wis., is the son of Olympic speedskaters Bonnie Blair and David Cruikshank. Blair is among the most decorated Olympic athletes in U.S. history, winning five gold medals and a bronze.

Grant Cruikshank was a Hobey Baker nominee this past season. He led the Tigers with eight goals despite being limited to 16 games for a team that finished 4-17-2. He scored 11 goals in each of the two seasons before that and still has two years of eligibility remaining.

On April 3, when a report surfaced on Twitter that Cruikshank was heading to Boston College, Cruikshank tweeted, "Still undecided. Stay tuned."


It turns out his destination was Minnesota, where he'll be joining a squad that went 24-7 last season.

I always wonder what’s going through the heads of the coaching staff in scouting players like Charlie Stramel for example. Obviously a high end player doing well at the ntdp, but with the backlog of forward recruits coming in when he would be slated to come in, does Bob and co. just not even make an attempt at the kid? I mean if you give him your pitch and he wants to be a gopher but there’s just no room, what then? Obviously there’s some kids you make room for but I’m not sure coaches want to gain the reputation that they just revoke your commitment once they find a shinier toy.

Where I’m going with this is do coaches at top tier programs like the U extend offers to all high end recruits knowing that they won’t be able to roster all of them?

Just thinking out loud.

Unless he accelerates, Stramel is a 2023 recruit - I believe - which helps given only Lamb is part of the class in what figures to be a small forward group. But your larger point still remains. They'll need to sort out the makeup/longevity of these classes. I would guess he is a clear take if this is where he wants to be, but it is understandably more complex than just adding any good player.

The backlog of forwards is really just a glut (7) of 2001 born players. Huglen and Pitlick coming in this year mean we have 5 that we have to make a decision on next year as they all run out of junior eligibility. We have three '02's, and '03's and two '04's. I imagine Stramel is most schools' top target now, the way he's improved this year.

My guess is Warner, Braccini won't make it to campus. Pino I think will, has the highest ceiling of the 3, has improved a lot, and was recruited by Motzko.

I am assuming he was a recruited walk-on, he’s done okay as a 4th liner in USHL. The next Cullen Munson.

If he plays like Munson I’m all for it, but if he tries to play like casey on the 4th line he’ll get benched.

I think it was pretty a package deal so we could get Luke, That is fine by me. We can always use 4 year depth guys.

The backlog of forwards is really just a glut (7) of 2001 born players. Huglen and Pitlick coming in this year mean we have 5 that we have to make a decision on next year as they all run out of junior eligibility. We have three '02's, and '03's and two '04's. I imagine Stramel is most schools' top target now, the way he's improved this year.

My guess is Warner, Braccini won't make it to campus. Pino I think will, has the highest ceiling of the 3, has improved a lot, and was recruited by Motzko.
Anyone know what is going on with Warner? I was pretty surprised to see only 2 points in 15 NAHL games when I looked at his stats recently.

I think only playing 15 games is the most concerning, assuming injuries again. He’s had a tough run of it.

So admittedly I only watched the highlights of the U18 USA vs Finland game but Strammel looked like he was involved on the majority of the goals for the US, including getting one himself. I feel like he’s a guy you go for if there is even the slightest room in our long list of recruited forwards

Stramel is very Intriguing, imagine our top target.

Interesting that in last 6 NCAA championships teams I think only 3 total NTDP alums: Joey Anderson, Shane Gersich, Will Butcher. Michigan has historically recruited program best since in their backyard. Only championship team was 1998, which I think was mostly Canadian and not yet heavy on NTDP. Maybe loading up on those kids isn’t a good idea, as tempting as they are.

I wouldn't read into that too much. They are almost always decent contributors at the college level as a floor.

Faber/Lindgren/Skjei are probably two of the top five D we've had since the Skjei/Reilly era. Let's not talk about the pain that was watching Collins/Glover their first few years.

Right, but to win you need better than decent contributions to win championship. NTDP hasn’t translated to that. Maybe one day it will. It’s probably cause the top guys from program move on quick, and the bottom guys aren’t as good as advertised.

Also interesting no NTDP player has ever won NCHC rookie of year. Plenty of true freshman have.

Faber/Lindgren/Fasching/Skjei/Boyd - Good to great Gophers (and made/will make NHL)
Reedy - Decent to "good" (I wasn't a big fan)
Collins/Glover - Sucked

I'll take those odds...

I'll take skjei, faber, Lindgren every time. Reedy was solid his last year and a half. Collins would have had a solid senior year.

The gophers haven't won a title in 20 years, and I can't attribute that futility to NTDP.

The top handful of NTDP guys will likely be worth it. But once you get past them, getting the types of players who get plenty of ice time in prime spots on a junior team is probably a better investment.

I never said NTDP didn't have good players come thru it. It's often looked at as a sign of who is recruiting well. I was a bit surprised that not many NTDP alums are National Champions. Greg Carvel said he doesn't even look at NTDP kids, could burn him, but looking at the last 10 years he could be right. The teams that have a lot of NTDP kids have often been the ones that have dissapointed.

To be fair I don’t think NTDP kids were looking at him either until the last 2-3 years.

Chris Peters is very impressed by Stramel:

"He’s this massive human, but he can skate and has great soft-touch skills including a killer release. Then he’s impossible to move off the puck. The only time I’ve seen a player truly plant him was with a trip. There was one play where a German player attempted to hit him and bounced right off of Stramel, who barely moved. The Minnesota native still hasn’t picked his NCAA destination, but this guy is one of the most unique prospects I have seen come through the NTDP."

Worth watch HockeyTV this month to get a glimpse.

This assumes:

1. The best team is the one that wins the national championship

2. The issue with those teams is the relatively small percentage of NTDP players they have and not the majority of players that make up the rest of the roster.

I'd say both of those assumptions are rarely true.

Yea, the NTDP is putting 25 or so players into the D-1 ranks versus far greater numbers from the big feeder systems. Bit of a misnomer to to just list the raw number without further scrutiny.

To answer the question yes, unless he accelerates to be a senior in the fall before then.

The super quick release on this goal from Stramel a couple of days back really stood out to me:


This is also an impressive group to be a member of:

Pretty good group of Minnesota forwards in this year's group of invites.

Sounds like Zam Plante has an invite to join the 04 group if he wants to make the move.

Can you share where you are reading the news about Plante's invite? I'm not finding that info anywhere. I'm also now wondering how many times it has happened where someone joins the U18 team after not even receiving an invite to the U17 evaluation camp with their birth year.

Happened with 03 Andre Gasseau and 02 Zakary Karpa, plus 00 Jon Mor. Seems like an annual thing they're doing at this point.

I’m always a sucker with a “road less traveled” story for a player to be noticed. I think it will be interesting to follow the development of goalie Carsen Musser from Sherburn. Played at Fairmont high school and then headed to Detroit to play midget hockey. Stumbled across this ARTICLE with a lot of information on the kid.

Should be noted this is the first time the NTDP has brought in three goalies, or at least the first since I started following them.

For lack of a better thread, the YHH did some research on select birth years with respect to playing/not playing for the NTDP. Nothing earth shattering came of it but here you go: https://www.youthhockeyhub.com/news_art ... ow/1163772

Among a few other items:

The following are a few numbers of note detailing data found from the 1995 to 2002 classes of Top MN players that played/did not play for the NTDP.

TOTAL # MN Invited - 66
AVG # MN Players Invited Per Year - 8.25
TOTAL # MN not Invited (Drafted/UFA) - 59
MN NTDP Players World Juniors U20 - 18
MN Non-NTDP Players World Juniors U20 - 12
Currently under construction.

I believe Grant Potulny’s son was drafted by Fargo in the USHL Draft last night. Jackson Potulny.
