  1. I like the simple CC jerseys. Clean and traditional. The script for the COLORADO COLLEGE leaves so much to be desired. It's like they lined up the script in a word document and used the generic font and hit ENTER. Especially from where they were coming from, their older scripted jerseys looked really good. Speaking of the logo, both look great and will age well. If only UND get over the obsession with using the NDHawk logo and get an additional logo that everyone can get behind (ie Ben Brien). Most teams have multiple logos, it's time for UND to do the same. Keep the NDHawk, but we need an additional logo with just a hawk that Sioux fans can get behind.
  2. *Hopefully we'll get 2 years with him as his draft stock is skyrocketing.
  3. Agree completely. This is a building block type class this year. Most of those forwards will be 4 year players for us and hopefully we'll get 3 years from Sanderson. Assumption: 7 senior and 1 junior/soph spot leaving My initial thoughts on the incoming list is: F - Gaber, Budy, Rizzo, Ness, Portz D - Sanderson, Kleven, Moore I'd be surprised to see Miller as he is just draft eligible this year and isn't rated in the first couple rounds.
  4. Considering they are both 15 yrs old and play a tough high school schedule (minus Crookston), I'd say they are doing well. This is Panzer's first year playing HS, so there is definitely an adjustment with speed and time.
  5. Nice to see his stock continue to rise. He should go in the mid to late first round in this years draft.
  6. Agreed, it's hard to expect a sweep. Ideally, sweep at home and at least split on the road. I think we'll see UND 5-1, Tie 3-3 Regardless of the atmosphere in Minny, the Gophers still have the talent.
  7. Rosters for the US All Star Select Camp. Reid, Miller, and Mancinelli made the cut.
  8. Yeah missed Oliver at 11. I was referring to the 1-12 picks only being blue chips as implied. So one I guess?! Not until recently, most years there are only three or four college bound players going in the first round. Again, just basing college recruiting and a definition solely based on draft position is shortsighted. This doesn't factor in the amount of major Junior and international players going high in the draft (thus pushing down college players down the board).
  9. As Hughes and Tkachuk are sophomores to be, in other words, ZERO incoming college recruits were"blue chippers?!"
  10. Exactly! When you only look at draft ranking it's completely flawed as it relates to college hockey. The bulk of players drafted aren't even college eligible. This is exactly why I posted that we took two of the top four incoming defensive players from this draft. There are far too many comments ripping on our recruiting just on the basis of a draft position. With that thinking, fans would throw a player like Drake caggiula or Wolanin to the curb. Draft position is only one element of evaluating a college bound player and building a team.
  11. http://collegehockeyinc.com/2018-nhl-draft-picks.php Nice reference for college committed or current NCAA players taken in the 2018 draft. For incoming defenseman, UND has the 2nd and 4th taken players in the draft. UND proud baby!
  12. There's nothing to worry about with jbd.. He's super young and defensemen typically take longer to develop than forwards anyways. Will have him for two plus years. A good example is Maker and Fabbro. Both crazy high first-round picks and both will play 2 years of college.
  13. A lot changes in one year from the previous projections. I think if I remember right he was a second-round projection. He didn't get great playing time, but still was with the top development programs in the US. He'll be a solid player for us for three-plus seasons. Glad to see him get drafted though.
