Here's a nice piece on Mitch MacMillan from the BCJHL home page. Hopefully we'll know if his younger brother will join him at NU by the time he gets here.

And from today's USHR

Tues. 2/16/10

Little Big Man

5'6", 135 lb. Team Comcast Under-18 forward John Gaudreau has committed to Northeastern for the fall of '12.

Gaudreau, an August '93 birthdate, has a 26-24-50 line in 42 Tier I Elite League games this season. He's a left shot playing the off wing, and can also play in the middle.

A lot of the Ivies - Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale, and Brown -- were onto him. In Hockey East, UNH and UMass-Amherst were also in the picture. Gaudreau's father played at Norwich for UMass coach Toot Cahoon back in the early ‘80s.

A junior in high school, Gaudreau will play for Team Comcast again next season, and then take a year in the USHL before heading to Northeastern.

"He's a small kid but has unbelievable hands," says Jared Beach, his coach. "He's a dynamic player who can cut back to evade defenders better than anyone I've seen. His skating is awesome. He has the best edge control of anyone I've seen at the '93 level. And he can stickhandle in a phone booth. He needs to fill out but will be a huge impact guy at the Division I level."

The team(Alberni Valley) was a big winner in the BCHL year-end awards for the Coastal Conference, announced last week. Mitch MacMillan earned most valuable player honors, while brother Mark won rookie of the year. Mark is a fantastic skater, hope he follows Mitch to NU.

Haar to Huskies

6'0", 180 lb. Russell Stover Under-18 left-shot D Garrett Haar has committed to Northeastern for the fall of '11 or '12.

Haar, an 8/16/93 birthdate, is an offensive-minded defenseman who played at the Select 16 Festival last summer and was named to the Under-17 Select team that went to the Five Nations Tournament in Fussen, Germany last August. Haar is a native of Huntington Beach, California and, prior to this season, played for the LA Selects along with Adam Reid, also a '93 birthdate, and also a Northeastern recruit.

Huntington Beach, by the way, is in Orange County, south of Long Beach, and right on the Pacific Coast Highway. It calls itself Surf City USA and the World Surfing Championships are held there every summer. Former University of Minnesota and Boston Bruins (briefly) goaltender John Blue was from Huntington Beach and was a surfer dude. And, of course, Northeastern head coach Greg Cronin, who got hooked on surfing when he was coaching in the New York Islanders organization, spends his down time in the summer riding the waves. Haar, though, does not surf.

Haar's father was originally from Ohio and played college hoops at the University of Toledo.

Currently a junior in high school, Haar also visited Ohio State and Colorado College as well as Northeastern.

In 42 games with Russell Stover, Haar has a 4-34-38 line.

NU assistant coach Sebastien Laplante spent several years coaching in Calif.
perhaps his contacts in that state are helping with the recruiting.

The article says Darcy will be here for fall of 2012 (and doesn't say on Gillies) - will Northeastern really have a recruit or two come in under the age of 20??

We also have Adam Reid who will be under 20 when he comes in, but they're both on the U-17 USNDPT (Reid currently is, and I think Darcy got onto it too). Seems like a good thing I think, since we're getting the kind of strong players who usually go to BC or BU.

Jamie Oleksiak is coming this fall and will start the season as a 17 year old.

He's coming in pretty early, especially since he hasn't seemed to put up a lot of points, why is he coming at 17?

Will be a good draft pick, late 1st, early 2nd rd. Big kid, over 6'5". Little bs when they say 6'7". Huge wing span and pretty good stick. Not much of a shot, steps up to make hit and gives up 2/1's a lot. BUT, and a huge BUT, he is only 17 and does not turn 18 until 12/21. Almost a 93

there is no reason to be going to Northeastern this fall when he was not even top half in USHL this year. He shopuldnt be, he was very young and at that size needs time. long term, very good. problem is he will be stuninting his development by getting tossed to woolves next year. Will get eaten alive by BC forwards and most of other fast hockey east players. zero time to have puck and will be takinga step back.

Parents and advisor want him to do it now, great long term prospect, big mistake going next year. Needs 1 if not 2 years in USHL where he can be an impact there first

Saw this report on him

(2011), D, Sioux Falls (traded)
Traded to Sioux Falls Jan. 21 for defenseman Richard Coyne .. maintains a wide base backwards and minimizes crossovers .. lower legs "v" out a lot when backwards .. executes smooth pivots from backward to forward and takes no extra steps .. makes smooth one-footed stops backward .. stride forward is a bit truncated .. isn't particularly fast or explosive .. generally makes the simple play with the puck .. has a crisp wristshot .. 6-foot-6 and obviously, has a long reach, but can make some decent sweeping stickhandling moves .. a decent prospect, but seemed to be plateauing with Chicago .. perhaps a change of scenery is just what the doctor ordered .. committed to Northeastern .. as of Jan. 31 he had 10 assists in 29 games for the Steel and had 1 goal in 4 games for Sioux Falls .. tallied five points in the first give games of the season .. had an 11-game pointless streak Oct. 24 through Nov. 25 .. had five assists in his final 13 games with Chicago

According to a post on DD, Chris Student will transfer and Luke Ebler, a 2011 recruit will be moved up to 2010. Ebler is 6’ 4’’ and very physical.

Darcy does have a spot on the US-17 team, and is coming in '12. Gillies should be coming along with him at that time, if Gillies is able to snag the second goalie spot on the US-17 team. Gillies timetable might be different from Darcy's if he has to travel a different route to NU. The two players are good friends and are excited to be able to play together, if not right away, then when they reach NU.

Anthony Bitteto made the USHL all-Star second team announced today. IIRC that is the same spot that Newton occupied last year when he was with Lincoln.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – With a member of the Youngstown Phantoms’ past already committed to play hockey for Northeastern University,
Forward Adam Berkle, already named next season’s team captain by Head Coach/GM Curtis Carr, will join former Phantoms defenseman Luke Eibler at Northeastern’s Boston campus in the fall of 2011. Eibler will report to school for the upcoming semester in August.

“[Northeastern has] been talking to me for a couple of years now and I always felt like that was where I wanted to go,” said Berkle. “I kind of had my mind made up to go to Northeastern before [Eibler] committed, but it’ll be nice to have someone I know there.”

Berkle, a 6-foot-4 winger from the Philadelphia suburb of Collegeville, Pa., proved to be one of Youngstown’s most reliable offensive contributors in his rookie USHL season. One of only three Phantoms to play in all 60 regular season games, Berkle tied for the team lead in goals with 17 and placed fifth overall on the squad with 26 points.

“The guys from Northeastern said they liked my aggressiveness, my scoring ability and my size,” he said. “[Having the commitment] definitely makes it easier to just go out and play in my last [USHL] season.”

The newest Northeastern recruit helped give Youngstown fans an injection of hope with an explosive finish to the team’s inaugural season – Berkle netted eight goals and 12 total points in the final 15 games of the slate.

“I’m going to be skating as much as I can,” said the lanky 180-pounder about his summer plans. “I’ll be working out and trying to gain weight and fill out some more.”
