No doubt he’s ready. He was by far the best player in Fargo last weekend. The things he does at his young age us amazing and he’s only going to get better. If he returns he alone is worth the price of admission 

Really kind of amazed me that he didn't take it in an score in one of the OTs. He legs looked fresher than most, the kid has some moves, and the other team was just so tired. It just wasn't our night to win.

Thankfully the sun came up today UND hockey fans!  My little boy proudly put on his Sioux beanie this morning and said we still love our team!!!  Let's go to the park dad!!! God bless you all!  G

Some good news for UND. Jasper is gonna be relied upon a lot.

Too bad Pinto didn't stay. I could see it now. The Ford-Pinto Line!

Could not agree more. When he had the puck on his stick I was on the edge of my seat

At no time during the whole OT was I ever worried when UMD had the puck. UND clearly was the better team throughout the OTs. We should have buried that game multiple times. But alas it wasn’t meant to be.

I worry every time a team has the puck in our end in overtime.  Have seen way too many times what kind of goal wins those games.   We were absolutely dominating Boston University the whole game and lost that one as well.

Edited your post for profanity.

Agreed, UND did a really nice job of controlling play. If something seemed like it wouldn't work, we would maintain puck control take it back into our zone and reorganize.

I really felt like the only points of the game we didn't control were a portion of the second and the beginning of the 3rd.

I agree, his puck handling and skating were a thing to behold.  I did over the course of the season, and I didn't search out the answer, but his end to end skating exhibitions: how often did that get in the net, either by him or another?

Kierstad (FLA) and JBD (OTT) have both officially signed. 

Based on the last game's chart, Frisch and Sanderson just became the top pair. 

As much as I hate losing Kiers and JBD, any team in the country would be absolutely stoked to have those two as their top pairing. As should we.

Possible 2021 d pairings....

Sanderson-Kleven

Frisch-Morrow

Moore-Bast

Benoit and Johnson listed as coming in the following year, so it seems as though we may be a bit thin on defense at the moment.  If everything stays where its at with no surprises we should have a great nucleus of Scheel, Sanderson, Kleven, Frisch, and Morrow logging some big time minutes.

If you believe UND will run an opening day roster with just 6D ...

I feel like we could pick up a walk on/Rieger type d-man for depth.

Everything I’ve seen has Benoit in Tri City next year. I do think Johnson will be here.

IMO, the key to making a run at #9 next year is Scheel, Pinto, and Sanderson all returning.  We would then start the season with the leagues best goalie, best forward, and best defenseman.

Agreed.  That trio would be a massive start to a good year next season.

Gotta pick up at least two IMHO. 

That portal has got to have some nice junior/senior dmen that Berry could have his pick of.

Pinto gone...I have a hunch we’re going to have an up and down season next year 

Bummer. It is offical, Beans has signed.

Pinto isn't a Toews talent. More of a Oshie talent. A 3rd year at UND would not have hurt him. Nonetheless Pinto will be a decade plus NHLer.

Reminds me of Brock Nelson in that way. I thought Brock leaving after his soph year was too early. But they have a lot of the same traits, so maybe Pinto becomes a mainstay in a Sens rebuild.

Well never mind. 
2 of the 3 already gone just a couple hours later. 
The key to next season will be just making it to the NCAAs. Then anything can happen. 
Gonna have to replace a lot of talented players first.
