Robinson to Tech

Sioux City Musketeers goalie Josh Robinson has committed to Michigan Tech. Robinson is an '89 birthdate, though already a USHL veteran. He appeared in 18 games for the Musketeers last season, and 21 this season, where he has posted a 2.73 goals against average and 91.8% save percentage.

Robinson will likely join the Huskies next season, due the strong possibility of goalie Michael-Lee Teslak signing a pro contract over the summer.

MacWilliam to the WHL, if he knows what's best for his development!!!! Why would he really ever dress for the NCAA???? He's waaayyy too good for that cruddy hockey...

wow, what a slap in the face to cramer the ohio goalie they committed a few weeks ago.

according to comments left on my blog after Cramer committed, he was going to be mostly a backup anyways.

Tim said...

That's correct, Cramer is a replacement for third-stringer Kevin Hachey, who will be graduating at the end of this season.

Robinson sounds like a good pickup for us, though frankly I'm 50/50 on the issue of Teslak departing, with the injuries he's sustained this year and the playing time he's lost because of it. Had he not missed a combined month and a half of games with back spasms and then his knee issue, it might be a different story.

I assure you that Macwilliams committed to UND on Friday and will develop better there than any NCAA school.

anon 1:10...you're an idiot...he's saying MacWilliam will never play for North Dakota because the NCAA sucks and he's better off developing in the WHL...now I disagree with him on that but to claim that North Dakota is not part of the NCAA...seriously ;)

who said UND wasnt a part of NCAA hockey?

"and will develop better there than any NCAA school"
That statement from Anon 1:10 basically says UND isn't an NCAA school

ATLANTA – Most years, a draft class is remembered solely for who went first.

Then there are the players who came out of the Draft Class of 2003. Of the 30 players selected in the first round, all but two (Hugh Jessiman-Dartmouth/ Brian Boyle-Boston College) already have played in the National Hockey League, and five of them were on the ice during NHL All-Star weekend in Atlanta.

Eric Staal (No. 2, Carolina)(Peterborough Petes (OHL), Dion Phaneuf (No. 9, Calgary)(Red Deer Rebels (WHL), Ryan Getzlaf (No. 19, Anaheim)(Calgary Hitmen (WHL), Mike Richards (No. 24, Philadelphia)(Kitchener Rangers (OHL) and Corey Perry (No. 28, Anaheim)(London Knights (OHL) all made solid showings on the grand stage.
