New Commits

Max Gardiner, bother of Wisconsin defenseman Jake, committed to Minnesota.

Defenseman Wes McLeod of the BCHL committed to Alaska-Anchorage.

Local player Keegan Flaherty committed to Minnesota-Duluth.

Two other BCHL players, defenseman Zach Josepher and forward Milos Gordic are going to Michigan State and Michigan Tech respectively.

NAHL defenseman Jack Callahan committed to Quinnipiac. The Big Q has recruited nearly exclusively out of the BCHL of late, but I think they got a real steal in Callahan. He looked like one of the nicest defensive prospects in the NAHL this year.

Northeastern picked up a commitment from Sioux Falls forward Robbie Vrolyk. Vrolyk is a USHL veteran that isn't very big, but possesses nice offensive ability.

We could have had Jake too if Lucia would have shown some interest.

Nice pick up for Anchorage.

Actually Lucia offered Jake for 2009.

I wouldn't take Gardiner over Ness or Lofquist at this point. Maybe if he'd played a year of juniors first, but not now. Gardiner looks okay only by comparison to the rest of the sconnie D. Who've been brutal as pairs and no better than mediocre as individuals. Their top two D are a combined -18.

If you're going to call out Lucia for missing a kid, McDonagh would be my choice.
