Future Recruits

Sioux add six for 2012-13

University of North Dakota women's hockey head coach Brian Idalski announced Tuesday the addition of Meghan Dufault, Tanja Eisenschmid, Samantha Hanson, Rebecca Kohler, Samantha LaShomb and Marissa Salo to play for the Sioux beginning in 2012-13.

"We were able to acquire some quality kids up front," Idalski said "Although we feel like we are pretty deep at forward, they were some of the best players to come out in this recruiting class and couldn't pass them up. We also wanted to shore up our team defensively and get a little more offense from our blue line. We feel we brought in some solid offensive D that can shoot the puck and create offense in transition. Overall we feel this is an outstanding recruiting class character, skill and work ethic wise."

"Our last two classes have been tremendous. These kids are going to be players for years to come and keep us up where we want to be and that is in national contention and playing for championships."

Tanja Eisenschmid, I had not heard this name. Nice surprise.

That must have been the one he was talking about on the coaches show the other week.

Probably a better chance Minnesota wasn't interested and didn't want to go East or worse yet, St. Cloud

I saw that David Marvin said that Kayla Gardner was the most talented player he has coached. Sounds like she could be a good one, as she is only a junior. She also has a sister who has been putting up some numbers as an eighth grader.

That is so freakn' awesome! What a charmer she is. Her dad looks like he could still lace 'em up for UND.

Ya know she could lace em up for my high school team right now. :)

Did I miss a women's hockey recruit somewhere along the line. I see the name Gracen Hirschy listed as a defensive recruit, and don't remember hearing that name before. Anybody have any info?

Google is a wonderful tool. I see she goes to Culver Academy in Indiana, but also played in the Pittsburgh U16 program. Also participated in the National Festival for USA hockey, so she's obviously a talented player in her age group. She committed in November based on what I saw through Google. She'd be a 2013 recruit.

Any talk about Lindsay Nagel? She just scored four goals for Fargo South to lead them to a championship and a perfect season.

She is going to Mankato State. UND missed bigtime on her. Heck of a player.

You can't get everybody. She might have liked the campus, the educational choices and being further away from Mom and Dad. We have a lot of talented kids coming in, so I am not worried.

I guess I should have said that she was never recruited by UND. I agree that talented kids are coming in but it is very important as well to have a presence in the state as far as recruiting goes even if you don't sign kids.

Only three teams have ever won a D1 championship: UMD, UM, UW. UND needs to compete with these schools for recruits if they want to be the fourth.
