    That's about as big of an accomplishment as knocking pins down on the bowling lane with the bumpers up.

    Yes, I just insulted myself.

      For the truly curious, I will be attending (and occasionally participating) in the RPI golf outing on Monday. Lest anyone mistake me for a serious/competent golfer, I will say that my main focus for the day will be keeping my cigar lit, my golf cart wheels down and my beer upright .

                            On Tuesday, the Des Moines Buccaneers defeated the Waterloo Black Hawks 4-3. Jason Kasdorf saved 15 of 16 shots in 30:17. He received credit for the win. http://ushl2011.stats.pointstreak.co...gameid=1715238

                            Kasdorf's preseason line is now 3-1-0-0-.929-2.67.


                            Edit: The USHL has entered this game on the schedule as both a preseason game http://ushl2011.stats.pointstreak.co...&seasonid=7849 and a regular season game http://ushl2011.stats.pointstreak.co...&seasonid=7561 although the stats aren't there under preseason. Since there are still several other preseason games listed to be played, I will assume it is a preseason game.

                                Ryan Clark of the Fargo Forum says Justin Wade, who committed to Notre Dame, had RPI as a finalist.

                                Force's Wade commits to Notre Dame

                                FARGO – Just in case the whole hockey thing doesn’t work out, Fargo Force junior hockey player Justin Wade is looking at being an engineer.

                                Or maybe being like his father, David, and working for a multi-billion corporation like BP.

                                When a person commits to a school like Notre Dame, which is what Wade did, it creates options.

                                “My dad has always pushed for me being academically sound as well as athletically sound,” said Wade, who is heading into his second season with the Force. “I’ve always tried to do that and when it came to college, I tried to pick schools based on that.”

                                The 17-year-old Wade said his other choices were Cornell, Michigan, Northeastern and RPI.

                                All of those schools are known for their academic prowess along with hockey.

                                But there was something about Notre Dame, which was ranked as the 19th best school in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, which stuck with Wade.

                                “When I took my official visit there, I really bonded well with the team,” Wade said. “I had that feeling that I wanted to go there. I was comfortable and I figured it’d be a good place to be, too. And it has good academics.”

                                Now that choosing a college is taken care of, Wade can worry about his second season with the Force.

                                He looks to help the team return to the playoffs for the fourth time in four seasons.

                                Wade, a defensive-minded defenseman, is known for playing tight defense and at 6-2, 210 pounds, he delivers punishing hits.

                                He only had one point last season (an assist) so all he has to do now is just score.

                                “I want to improve on my ability in the offensive zone,” he said. “I just want to have a wider range to my game.”

                                Wade is one of five Force players that made NHL Central Scouting’s preliminary list of North American players that could be selected in next summer’s NHL draft.

                                But in case that doesn’t work out, he’ll have something to fall back on.

                                And something says a Notre Dame degree could cushion the blow of not playing pro hockey.

                                “I felt like in my heart that I knew I was going to go there,” Wade said. “Getting off my chest and saying it publicly was great. It was exciting. My mom and dad were both excited, too.”
                                So he can be a little-e engineer, but won't be a big-e Engineer.

                                Wade was on the Ivan Hlinka team that Appert coached over the summer, and we profiled him as a possible RPI target in our Hlinka preview at WaP - so I'm going to go ahead and claim 3 for 4 on our evaluations. RPI was indeed in on Jordan Masters and Justin Wade and Louie Nanne was indeed always going to be a Gopher. We missed on Sam Kurker - he's not going to Union like his father, or to RPI or anywhere else in the ECAC as we suspected, he's committed to BU in 2013.

                                At any rate, Wade's a loss, but you can't win them all. Definitely would have loved to nab him and Boo Nieves for sure off that Hlinka squad. But I'm just as happy to be losing guys to Michigan, UNH, and Notre Dame instead of just Colgate, Northeastern, and Providence like we used to.
