Interesting! Does GF have a Jackson Kunz type player this year, or overall depth (or both)?

Hard to say, Jackson is such a unique talent with his size and skill.  This years team may have a little more depth.  They play a very good brand of hockey and move the puck extremely well.  There is a lot of top end kids on the team and the ceiling is high for a lot of them.  The Aviators started a little slow this year but have been tearing up the MN AA teams over the last month.

Speaking of WHL Top Prospects, the #1, #10, and #13 top skaters for this years WHL draft will be in the Ralph tomorrow at 12:30.  In addition, so will be the #1 goaltending prospect for the WHL draft.  The Rink Academy (Rink Prep) will be in town playing the Grand Forks Aviators.  Carson Lambos is a D that is rated #1.  I am sure you will see both coaching staffs from UND and Denver at this game.  Here is the projected draft ranking for WHL: http://www.dubnetwork.ca/draftgeek/whl-bantam-rankings/

By the way the Grand Forks Aviators are no slouch either as they are currently ranked #2 in MN Bantam AA and have a lot of prospects themselves: http://www.youthhockeyhub.com/page/show/2949799-now-rankings-mn

Should be a great hockey game.  12:30 Saturday main rink at the Ralph...free admission...enter through the Olympic rink.

The #4 prospect follows the UND coaching staff.

Another rising 1st year bantam teams will be after in the coming years: Nick Pierre (2004, Cottage Grove/Hill-Murray).

As an update to this post, age-wise Nick Pierre is an 8th grade first year bantam. Hill-Murray recently brought him up to their varsity team (he had been playing JV), and he's responded by scoring two goals in each of his first two varsity games (vs Maple Grove and Grand Rapids).

And just let this sink in for a moment: he's a 2004 who has gone from playing pee wee a year ago to playing high-level varsity this season, skipping right over bantams while not missing a beat. Incredibly impressive! For the FM area folks, Hill-Murray visits Moorhead at the end of the season.

Seeing the names Panzer and Spicer brings back some old Ralph GFC state hockey memories.  I'm guessing the Panzer kid ends up at UND if he put up four points against that group.

Nick Pierre played on Cottage Grove Bantam team last year. Great player though and certainly D1 caliber talent!

He completely benefits from playing on a line with Helgeson and Spicer. Those two carry that team.

But how many of those four points were phantom assists? ;):D

Someone told me that Charlie Combs switched from UND to BSU at the last minute. I didn't wanna call him a liar, but anyone know if UND was even after him?

Definitely possible.  Overager that put up huge point totals in the BCHL.  His line mate also went to BSU. It could have came down to scholarship $

I don't want to think anyone has ever chosen BSU over UND!

Haha.  Players also have to think about playing time.  There is a risk to choosing UND over BSU. Most years, und has a bunch of talent.

Owen Sillinger is one I think of now, he might have came to UND and is doing very well in the BCHL. At the time he committed to Bemidji, UND probably didn’t have the room for him to come in next year. Right now it looks like he probably could have came to UND next year.
