  • Re: RPI 2011 - 12 Recruit Thread

    Add this. The info was posted earlier by redhead.

    Two players that we regrettably missed were both from Salisbury: ’95 defenseman Thomas Welsh and ’95 forward Anthony DiFruscia. Welsh is a 6’0, 195 lb. Penn State recruit for the fall of 2013. DiFruscia, like Berisha, is from Ontario and is a high OHL draft pick, going in the second round to the Niagara Icedogs. The 5’10, 180 lb. junior played last season for the Welland Tigers and had a 50-52-102 – and over a hundred penalty minutes -- in only 59 games. He’s been offered by Penn State and RPI but is talking to a lot of schools. He doesn’t have as much flash and dash as Berisha. He’s more of an up-and-down-the-wing power forward. A good honest player with a high skill level, and a good student, he has Ivies inquiring.

      Jake Wood, ’93 (Jr. Bobcats) 5-8/160, F—Energy player who creates a lot and can bury the puck. Will be a top producer at The Gunnery this season. Remains to be seen if the senior from Ontario can be a finisher at the DI level. We’ll find out though, because he’s headed to RPI.

      Charles Manley, ’96 (Selects Hockey Academy) 5-8/140, D — Has really light feet and is a fluid skater. Brother of former NTDP product Richard Manley. If he can get some of his brother’s height (6’5”) he will shoot up recruiters’ charts.

      Drew Melanson, ‘95 (New Jersey Freeze) 5’10”, 150 lbs., F—RPI recruit can really fly. His speed is incredibly difficult to defend against. Really puts defenders on their heels. We watched him play a very good Cape Cod Whalers team and he was a standout. If he adds a little more finish to his game he could turn into a real steal for the Engineers. Will be a junior at Delbarton.

      We thought 5’11” Riley Bourbonnais, a ’93 LW from the Berkshire School, did a fine job, and adapted quickly to the pace.

      We liked RPI recruit Chris Bradley, a 6’1”, 190 lb. ’93 defenseman from Williamsville, NY. Solid. Nothing flashy.
      Cannot comment about the others-but as has been noted we have seen Melanson a number of times. He is by far the fastest skater on the ice in every game. I do not think I can recall ever seeing anyone at his stage being this fast-and he gets to high speed within a couple of strides. I hope he can retain that asset while adding a little upper body strength and size.
      Take the shortest distance to the puck and arrive in ill humor

I think it's RPI or St.Johns (Winnipeg's AHL team)...and looking at that scenario it would seem RPI would be the way to go. As Doc would say, "just my 2-cents".
          21 yr. old freshmen aren't so uncommon, not seeing why that wouldn't work. I don't think that Kaz is anywhere near ready for the AHL. His choices are RPI, DM or Major Juniors, IMO. Having Merriam, Diebold and Kasdorf on campus together would be a waste of a year of eligibility and scholly $. Its a tough call for Appert...
          Just to clarify, I want the Kaz here but having 3 scholly keepers on the roster at once is a waste.

              FWIW, theres a rumor floating around that Regg Simon is out as head coach of the Bucs. Havent seen any other news on this besides that post on FYC.

                    If you're 20 years old, MJ isn't exactly an option. You get one year there maximum, and then have to go up to the ECHL/AHL. He's better off sticking with the USHL for a year, and then RPI.

                      and there's that SAT's thingy.
                      Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

                          Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

                              I'm pretty sure I mentioned that. Point is, Winnipeg and his advisor may have other ideas. Here's hoping I'm wrong.
