Earlier last week, Minnesota-Duluth got a commitment from a local prospect in defenseman Scott Kishel, who skates for Virginia High School in northern Minnesota. Here's an article from the Duluth News-Tribune on Kishel. St. Cloud and North Dakota were listed as the runner-ups for his services.
Then later last week, Duluth got a commitment from Mike Connolly, a forward for Camrose in the AJHL. Connolly was rumored to be interested in Wisconsin and Boston University earlier this year, but interest from those schools seemed to cool over recent months. Duluth has recruited a number of players from the Camrose program, and Connolly looks to be a pretty solid player.
