But hidden in there, and just as important ...

Q: How do you keep a bunch of UND Hockey jamokes in suspense?
A: They'll tell us next week. :D 

Are they going to announce one per day again? :cool:

We had 11 freshman in 2015-16 and that worked out ok. Let's hope this group can gel like that one.

Hey man, sounds good to me. Definitely confident in the transfers and I think a couple of the freshmen are going to play big time roles.

With the confirmation of Matteo C. coming in, that completes the team for '21-22.  The interesting thing is that, with the transfers, they only need 1 freshman to complete the lineup on any given night.  Quite the luxury.

I think some of the freshmen will be good enough to earn spots, but it is rare to have a team where you don't HAVE to play multiple freshmen.

This again remains "best guess" based on Schlossman articles and what else we know, but I'm willing to say it's right there.  

Forwards:

  • Portz
  • Schmaltz
  • Ford (BGSU portal) 
  • Calder (LSSU portal)
  • Kunz
  • Constantini


Defense:

  • Bast, L
  • Ferner (RPI portal)
  • Jandric (UAF portal)
  • Johnson

Goaltender:

  • Driscoll (BSU portal)  
  • Hellsten (Halmstad Hammers, SWE)
  • Johnson

After heavy loses from last year's team, this is shaping up to be a nice roster.   It will be interesting to see how the development and chemistry aspects go.

Based on the words in the Schmaltz announcement tweet ("13th and final"), I'd declare this as the final incoming outcome.

Forwards:

  • Portz
  • Schmaltz
  • Ford (BGSU portal) 
  • Calder (LSSU portal)
  • Kunz
  • Constantini


Defense:

  • Bast, L
  • Ferner (RPI portal)
  • Jandric (UAF portal)
  • Johnson

Goaltender:

  • Driscoll (BSU portal)  
  • Hellsten 
  • Johnson 


I guess they'll run with a 15F-8D-4G roster (instead of the more common 15F-8D-3G).

And again we get to be the butt of the oldest joke in the book ... "tell ya next week." 

North Dakota is set to announce its non-conference schedule in the coming week.

Maybe the coaches will help out and give Schmaltz #8 and Bast #2.  Now you’re down to eleven.  Only problem is we will be calling them Nick and Gabe!

Well I'm pretty sure I know all the numbers from 0 to 99 so it shouldn't be too hard. ;)
