New Commits

These come courtesy of Chris Heisenberg.

Team Illinois forward Garrett Peterson committed to Notre Dame for 2010. Peterson had a successful Select 17 Festival, and will represent the US at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament this summer.

Lake Superior got a commitment from Detroit Catholic Central goalie Tyler Marble. Marble is a '92 birthdate, so he won't join the Lakers until 2010 at the earliest.

Northern Michigan got a commitment from forward Stephan Vigier. Vigier played in Manitoba last year, but will move to the USHL this season. He'll also join the Wildcats in 2010.

And out east...

NTDP forward Jerry D'Amigo committed to RPI. There were a few schools out west that had showed interest in him.

Berkshire Prep's Chris McCarthy committed to Boston College. McCarthy was one of the leading scorers at this year's Select 17 Festival.

Eaves and the coaching staff have caved in to annoying antagonists like you and are no longer recruiting anyone.

I thought Wisconsin was making the switch to D-3.

No need to recruit..

One less forward
DPlaya at HIW has confirmed that Zach Bearson is leaving the Badgers but that the UW will honor his scholarship. (Not sure how much money he was getting, but I don't think it was a lot.)

Not a huge surprise, given his limited prospects for playing time this season. I confess I'm a bit surprised he's not transferring to another school, as he has 2 years of eligibility left. Not that my surprise means anything, since I obviously don't know the kid or anything about his situation (besides the obvious lack of ice time).

I was at Cap Ice a little over a week ago, and I believe at that time he was skating in the informal practices. Of course, if he's leaving the team but not transferring elsewhere, I don't suppose it would be all that unusual for him to skate with the guys over the summer. I'll have to check with nubeetle to see if he's seen Bearson lately.

So, by my count, that leaves the Badgers with 16 forwards this next season." (from Wisconsin blog)

Looks like they have room to recruit, they may just need to quietly have more players leave. However, it is always better if they leave the $$$ on the table. By the way, believe Bearson is on a full-scholarship.

A lot of kids want to play for the Badgers. That's a very good problem to have for Eaves and his staff. My guess is most nitwits who comment on Wisconsin recruiting must be fans of second rate programs who can't land so mnay top flight players!
