Not sure if it was already shared, but Cole Sillinger signed with Medicine Hat a little while ago. At least it means Bemidji won't get him...

Hope he has a back-up plan when they screw him out of promised educational benefits.

Since I live 1000 miles away I get to 1-2 games per year so I’ve never seen the entire REA. 

I’m a big believer in blink moments; what exactly does a prospective recruit see when he is introduced to the facility other than the obvious such as the view from the seats. 

I guess I’m thinking more about trophy displays, photos, history, training facilities, player lounge...all the things that at first impression make it clear to them and parents this is the place they want to be. 

Thanks in advance.

You are correct.

I'll try and find pics/ video. But it's more impressive walking through the whole building.

The Ralph does tours, the next time your in GF you may want to partake:

Every time I walk through the curtains and look up at the banners, I pause. So much tradition.

Has UND talked to Cole Spicer yet? Looks to be the next stud from GF.

Wasn't there a very good Spicer back in the Serge Gambucci days?

So was Cade Stibbe someone who UND should have looked at?

Personally I don't think so. He's a very good player, but at 5'6 you gotta be extremely talented to make up for your lack of size. Last guys who were 5'6 and played at UND that I can remember were Grimaldi and Duncan and they were on a much higher level than Stibbe when they committed. That said Carter Randklev was a small kid committed to ASU too before he took a big step and got the call from UND, so it's always possible Cade could end up being a UND level player down the road. Hope this was helpful!

He’s absolutely tearing up the MN bantam elite league. Does anyone know if he plans to play high school this year or for the GF Aviators?

I work with one of his relatives and the last time we talked about it Cole wanted to go to UND. It's been awhile since that conversation, I'll have to ask him about it next time I see him.

Kid is tearing up the Bantam elite league with the likes of Jaksen Panzer and Owen Hanson of Minot.  I know they are only going to be freshmen in high school but all three have to be on our radar.

I'm not quite sold on Panzer but Spicer for sure.

Are both going to Central like their dads??

I believe so. Wouldn't be surprised to see Spicer suit up for them this year but I would bet Panzer stays in Bantams.

If we don't get Panzer, I would imagine he'll go to UNO and have an excellent 4yr career.  Seems to be the norm.  ;)

I think Owen Hanson will be a name to look for too.  Dad played D1 at Lake State a few seasons and the kid has all the makings of being a really good power forward.

Sister played prep school up at Notre Dame academy, so not sure if that's the way he is looking, but probably won't be at Minot High all four years.

Blais isn't there anymore, so perhaps not (nice comment though!).
