  1. New players jersey numbers: 8 -- Harrison Blaisdell, freshman forward 11 -- Westin Michaud, senior forward 13 -- Carson Albrecht, freshman forward 15 -- Ethan Frisch, freshman defenseman 22 -- Shane Pinto, freshman forward 28 -- Judd Caulfield, freshman forward
  2. I'd go after Steve Cygan from UAA. He's super fast.
  3. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/hockey/3828427-UND-hockeys-all-time-leading-scorer-Greg-Johnson-dies-at-48 Sad news.
  4. Some news in Herald today. No Rowe, no Stratton, and Keane lost a year of eligibility.
  5. Agreed. From the press release: The regional alignment and compact geographic footprint comments are their way of nixing the Alaska schools from the group, so to add ASU would go against their own statements.
  6. So B1G wanted prestige and NCHC wanted national hockey titles. Seems to have worked out for UND and other NCHC members. I’ll take it.
  7. Man that is a pile of USNTDP players taken in the 1st round...
  8. I would rather the Gophers not be good. That said, we haven't been really contending for titles either since the 2016 trophy.
  9. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/1761952-Former-DU-forward-Brendan-Budy-commits-to-UND?fbclid=IwAR2nmCf5hAQSjxg1sRjZOYCl3OS14AtZ13BlX3CsDq_O8oxAZszsH_BsEto New forward recruit for 2020 class, played with DU last season so will only have 3 years of eligibility left.

    Shaw's gone.

    Adding Michaud to our PP bumps it up 5% automatically.
  11. Sounds like Perunovich is returning for another season at UMD.
  12. Rumors going around are that Jack Hughes wants to play one year of NCAA hockey prior to going pro, so the UND staff is making room by holding Caulfield back one season in the USHL. Fargo, upon hearing that, took a late flyer on Judd knowing that he'd need a place to play for a season.
  13. Not to mention DU commit Matthew Savoie went 1st overall. And the team that selected him also picked up the rights to his brother from Regina...Matthew's older brother was also committed to DU. Either they're really gambling on a "hope" that both brothers elect to go WHL...or they already know the brothers intentions. That can't be a good sign for the DU commitments.
  14. Yeah. He’ll get heavy pressure to sign with his drafted team if he keeps progressing, so hopefully he still ends up here if he’s still a stud in 4 years.
  15. 14 years old? Wowzers, had to get his commitment in before the rules change. Didn't realize he had been drafted that high in the WHL. Odds that he ever makes it to campus?
  16. Samberg announced that he is staying for his JR season as well for UMD. Just Perunovich left as an early departure risk for them...
  17. This team will make the playoffs next season.
  18. I can't wait for these three to get on campus. I see them being great college players that all stick around for 3-4 years. Put them all on the same line and you get the next Pony Express line of Rizzo (Trupp), Blaisdell (Frattin), and Caulfield (Malone).
  19. I see SCSU dipping quite a bit from their season this year after their losses and graduating seniors. I see a trio of UND, DU, and UMD (in any order) ahead of the rest of the pack.
  20. With all his injuries, I think they wanted him to have another year in juniors. The Michaud decision might have sealed the deal. Who knows. Hopefully when he comes in next year (20/21), he's ready to contribute right away. He probably would have this year though too.
  21. Jost is the exception though. We've had plenty stick around for another 1-2 years after they've already had offers to leave. Oshie, Toews, Boeser, etc come to mind. Don't forget Joe Finley either.
