Lynch was a third round OHL draft pick of the Plymouth Whalers, recently. Redline Report's Kyle Woodlief was a fan of Lynch saying:
Kevin Lynch/RC - Honeybaked. Underrated pivot is a coach's dream. Does whatever is needed to win. Rarely loses an important face-off. Great penalty killer and has more skill than he's given credit for. Scores big goals.Calabrese played last year with Team Illinois Midget Major team. He is already committed to Notre Dame for the 2009 season. Calabrese would be the 8th defenseman on the NTDP team.
