Is he one of our recruits?

For comparison to current USHL recruits, his PPG is not much less than Riese Gaber’s, but above Jake Schmaltz’s.

Gaber is tied for the USHL goal lead.

Wouldn't Portz's ppg in the USHL be somewhat skewed because he was in the NAHL part of this year?

His ppg is based on the number of games he has played.

Been out of town so this may be old news, but Jake Sanderson is on the cover of USA Hockey magazine.

Nice to see his stock continue to rise. He should go in the mid to late first round in this years draft.

Interesting that for various reasons, Berry and crew continue to pick up more elite (by draft standards) players at defense. Top three guys are defenseman in midterms, after Tychonick and JBD topping the group in 18’. I know Halliday had much higher expectations and obviously Pinto is a stud, but he was more of a diamond in the rough who likely developed into more than expected. Not complaining as these are great classes regardless, but thoughts on why Berry seems to have a bit more success at recruiting top talent on backend? Avoiding one and done’s? Slightly better reputation for developing defenseman or more desirable systems? Better eye for recruiting them? Pure coincidence? 
 

Good to see Kunz hasn’t completely fallen off the radar despite injury and other struggles and hopefully Halliday can start performing closer to his talent level if he can get his compete level up. Solid class With ability to quickly contribute, regardless!

I’ve watched Kunz this year, he’s really good...at times during the Elite League he was absolutely toying around out there.  Has a lazy stride but his stick handling/shot are elite.  I was shocked he wasn’t rated higher. But he is playing prep as opposed to junior A during his draft year so....

Halliday is streaky.  Has disappeared for large stretches this year and then came on strong.  Has to have a big second half.  I’ve read his skating is iffy.  Not bad if we’re looking for a 4 year player

He’s coming back?

Never mind he played in the WHL.

Ya WHL.  But either way, you don’t end up on the amount of teams he’s played on and end up here.

Literally AND Figuratively. I'll bet he's a two year player at the most.

I can't wait to see him and Kleven on the back end. Sounds like they're going to be nasty to play against.

His draft profile says yes, but man, he seems really, really happy to be coming here and his dad clearly believes in us.
