  1. Agreed. Could see the 2-7 teams finishing in any sort of order by end of season.
  2. That was a big surprise to me as well. He could be a Hobey contender this year IMO.
  3. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/hockey/7192715-Jake-Sanderson-wins-UNDs-Iron-Man-competition Sanderson won the Iron Man competition.
  4. Their coach has been saying for 4 years that they are close to joining a conference.
  5. They could have chosen to throttle the NDSU club team if they wanted.
  6. Using the new NCAA waiver for exhibition games, UND will now play Bemidji on Oct 2 instead of Manitoba.
  7. Fantilli bringing his buds along with him. Wish we could have landed Fantilli, I know it was a long shot, but he did visit UND. Michigan is going to be like UND last year in regards to off-season departures. Half their roster will be gone at the end of this season, but they at least have some studs lined up to replace a couple of those departures.
  8. Either Rutger McGroarty or Matthew McGroarty. Rutger is committed to Notre Dame and Matthew to Quinnipiac.
  9. I'm intrigued. What are you hearing? New recruit coming in this year...moving up a current recruit a year early...transfer portal player...sniping a recruited player from another school??
  10. I'm interested too...can't be many impact players available this late in the game. "Hey do you want to play hockey for UND this year...by the way, school starts tomorrow"
  11. Leaving the day before school starts? Ouch. That's a pretty weak move IMO. Tough to lose your #1 center a month before the season starts. Going to be hard to replace his spot in the lineup and productivity, especially so late in the game.
  12. That 05/06 UND team was the one with Stafford, Zajac, Oshie, Toews, Duncan, Spirko, Lee, Chorney, etc. What a stacked team...they ended up losing in that 6-5 shootout in the Milwaukee F4 semifinal to BC.
  13. https://www.uscho.com/2021/08/21/top-nhl-draft-picks-power-beniers-johnson-all-announce-return-to-michigan-for-21-22-college-hockey-season/ They will certainly be a very talented and highly skilled team, and probably the preseason #1. They and UMN will both be very good next season and will probably easily be 1/2 in the B10 standings. Both of those teams will lose a TON to the pros after this upcoming season, so this is their best shot to get a title in many years. As we've seen in the past though, high NHL draft picks don't necessarily translate to post-season success, especially in a one and done format. Should be a fun season.
  14. Jimmy Clark or were you talking about Rinzel? I haven't seen anything about Clark yet...
  15. gfhockey when Sanderson committed:
  16. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/hockey/7135522-UND-lands-commitment-from-Winnipegs-Jayden-Perron
  17. All three look like very solid pickups! Good first day for Berry and Co!
  18. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/hockey/7135258-Clark-Cup-champion-defenseman-Jake-Livanavage-verbals-to-UND-on-opening-day-of-junior-commitment-period
  19. I think they'd only miss the exhibition against the U18 team, so wouldn't be the worst thing.
  20. Another destination game in the works for the 22/23 season! Back to Vegas against ASU. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/hockey/7088618-UND-hockey-close-to-setting-a-return-to-Vegas
  21. Yes, 1st round NHL draft talent has always been the main factor for determining how a NCAA team will do. That's why UW, Michigan, BU, etc have really dominated the NCAA postseason play the last few years.
  22. Big get for UW. Was wondering when he was gonna commit. Better to UW than UMN.
