As many times in the information age, the rumor has been confirmed that Pitlick is visiting Medicine Hat and the reports are that he is likely gone. Too bad I was looking forward to watching this kid, cheering for him this year, and following his career. Good luck in the future.

Yes, I know all are linkable from Shane's blog, but thought I would put them here for those that haven't checked them out, yet.

I've read some positive things about who else is returning, and some of the new kids, but this kind of departure that hurts. It hurts bad. Of course, as far as we know now, no official decision has been made.

Speaking of Tyler Pitlick ;)

His final ranking on NHL (http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=524284&cmpid=nhl-twt-nhl) Central Scouting's list of North American skaters is 18th. In the side bar, he is compared to Mark Parrish. I'm not sure if that is good or bad? I think pretty good. Personally, I always liked Parrish and thought he got a raw deal with JLM an the Wild.

Warroad HS's Brock Neslon comes in at 25th; his comparison is to David Backes.

EDIT: MSU recruit Max Gaede of Wooodbury H.S. moved up 40 spots from his mid-term ranking to 104th overall. That is all the time I had at work to analyze the list and may have missed something. I'll have more time tonight to look deeper. I'm sure Chris and Shane will have you covered at their sites as well.

Some of those player comparisons were way out there, including the ones for Pitlick and Nelson. Parrish does nothing but score goals, and Pitlick does everything but score goals.

Brett Stern from Centennial was somewhere in the mid-140s on that list as well.

If true, that really blows.

I don't have a source to which I can link on the Interwebs at this time, but from what I understand, this will be no surprise to the team.

The fans, it probably will. Especially the ones not closely following Maverick hockey in the off-season. :(

It isn't really too much of a surprise, but it still really blows.

Looks like a productive group of forwards in USHL finishing up their seasons. Matt Leitner (Fargo) 25-41-66, Corey Leivermann (Fargo) 20-35-55, Grant Chase (Fargo) 28-22-50 , and Zach Lehrke (Cedar Rapids) 26-33-59 +20 Might provide some offensive spark for departing senior core...

I noticed that the other day. I don't want to get too excited too soon, but these stats are very solid in a very good leauge.

That Fargo group could be interesting. Instant chemistry having skated with each other for two years already could be an asset from the start.

I think it's "Chase Grant", rather than Grant Chase... I guess we'll find out next year...

Any updates on Pitlick??? I'm still not 100% convinced he is leaving, so I'm looking for something more concrete that what we have seen posted so far.
