Artem Shlaine who was expected to come in fall of 2021 has signed his NLI for next fall. Could possibly mean a forward expected to come next year will not be coming.

Going back to this, it is possible Shlaine is coming early because 2020 recruit Cade Webber went down with a season ending injury for Penticton. Maybe Webber's injury will keep him out next year too (which would lead us to bring Shlaine early), cannot find what the injury is exactly but season ending must be bad. Just a conspiracy.
IMO Webber out for next year would not be worst case scenario because only defenseman I see leaving early is Farrance, which would leave our top 6
-Crotty
-Kasper
-Fensore
-Vlasic
-McCarthy
-Doyle
Yet there is no evidence that Cade Webber will miss next year too, Penticton hasn't released what exactly the injury is. All this is just my crazy conspiracy to bring Shlaine in early.

The Hockey Writers: Commesso Might Be Second-Best Goalie in 2020 NHL Draft

BU recruit news from The Draft Analyst:

G Drew Commesso (Ranked No. 156) Ė If you were going to base the NHL upside of a draft-eligible prospect off of just one tournament or small stretch of games, then watching Commesso play at the Five Nations would lead you to believe heís a lock for the first or second round. Much like 2019 first-round pick Spencer Knight, Commesso plays like he has ice water in his veins. You rarely see him out of position or make a movement that isnít fluid and doctrinally sound. Most followers of this yearís NTDP 18ís will tell you that this group has played a ton of close games against the best competition in three circuits Ė the USHL, the NCAA, and international tournaments, and Commesso has pooled together several stellar performances in each of them. One thing is certain Ė the future Boston University Terrier significantly outplayed Yaroslav Askarov in this tournament, which was something Knight couldnít do last February. I think Iíve seen enough of Commesso the last two months to give him a significant boost in my next rankings.


LW Luke Tuch (Ranked No. 60) Ė Tuch is one of my favorite draft-eligible players to watch for a variety of reasons. Yes, he has those NHL bloodlines from big-brother Alex, who was a first-round pick in 2014 and a regular with the Vegas Golden Knights. Luke, unsurprisingly, is a hard-charging power winger who uses his speed and puck control to frequently attack the inside, even against top-rated defenders with the fleetest of feet. Tuch is a hunter on the prowl in the neutral zone; one who looks for telegraphed passes to pick off or an unassuming puck carrier to nail into the boards. Although itís nearly impossible to not notice Tuch on a given shift, his best performance was in a 3-2 win over Russia in which he scored an insurance goal after setting up Jake Sandersonís wrister that opened the scoring. His physicality, quick stick and strong puck protection are critical to the success of the NTDPís top line with center Thomas Bordeleau and Landon Slaggert.

C/RW Dylan Peterson (Ranked No. 142) Ė Itís starting to become very clear that I was a bit harsh for really dropping the hammer on Peterson for having a slow start to his draft season. Before I did so, however, I consulted with a couple of trustworthy people who confirmed that he wasnít playing well but reiterated that Petersonís potential for greater things still remained. Nonetheless, the California native has put together a nice second-half run, and his play at the Five Nations should be considered another feather in his cap. For what itís worth, I ranked Peterson 45th in my August rakings that were based off his mean, dominant play with the 17ís last year. In the Czech Republic, and several weeks leading up to the tournament, Peterson has been an absolute pain to play against. Itís at the point where it goes without saying that he will treat the opening seconds of every shift as a violent seek-and-destroy mission to separate opponents from the puck and turn or keep the momentum in his favor. From then on, however, you get to see Peterson make sausage the old-fashioned way Ė winning board battles, protecting the puck, outmuscling defensemen for low-slot positioning, and stickhandling under control in the face of pressure. He can skate like the wind when you consider how big and thick he is ó a key aspect of the allure his game exudes. Still, Peterson playing unbridled can have its drawbacks, specifically in the form of low-percentage (and inaccurate) shots and undisciplined penalties at inopportune times. In any event, you once again saw why scouts are in love with this kid.

Two 2021/22 recrruits will be playing in the BCHL next year. Quinn Hutson will be playing for Penticton (Fabbro, Amonte, Jay O'brien alum) and Liam Connors will be playing for Trail Smoke Eaters. Both teams are losing a ton of production so hopefully these two will have an opportunity to step into those roles.

Best team nickname in junior hockey.

The NAHL Odessa Jackalopes would beg to differ. :D

New England Hockey Journal has named 2021 recruit Quinn Hutson (Lane's older brother) to its Northeast Pack 18 All-Star Team. Overall, Hutson had 75 goals and 42 assists for the North Jersey Avalanche 18Us, including 31 goals and 20 assists in 23 AYHL midget games. Following in the footsteps of Dante Fabbro, Ty Amonte, Jay O'Brien and Cade Webber, heíll play for BCHL Penticton next season.

Following transfer Jay O'Brien's BCHL season, an opponent's perspective on the former Philly first-round pick.

Heís just one of those players when he has the puck on his stick, you take notice ó you know that heís got a chance to make something special happen, whether itís scoring or setting up a guy for an unbelievable look. Heís very gifted offensively, thereís no doubt about that.

Well he certainly should be an improved player, just given his age and a little more of knowing what to expect. How much better is harder to tell since he has been playing mostly against kids younger than him. The ceiling could certainly be high, and one would think that even if he doesn't blossom into his draft status, he should at worst be a solid third-liner.
