    No Nanne? I expected Nanne and Lettieri to come in together.
    I believe (Hammy could probably answer this better) Nanne is currently a 2013/2014 (depending on departures).

      Nanne is likely a 2014 entry.

          North Dakota:

          F - Rocco Grimaldi

          Grimaldi will likely be the biggest name offensively for the bunch. As has been much debated, Grimaldi played 4 games last season in the Kelly Green and White before succumbing to a season-ending knee injury. Grimaldi was a star for the US National Development Team, scoring 25 points in 23 games. If Grimaldi can stay healthy, look for him to be a top point-producer for North Dakota.

          F - Colten St. Clair

          St. Clair is the second player who attended UND last year, but due to some weird technicalities had to sit out the season. The academic Sophomore stuck it out, and Colten should be a solid contributor in his first season on the ice in Grand Forks. The Arizona native played three seasons with the Fargo Force, totaling 84 points (43g-41a) in 151 games. Most believe St. Clair will be a 4th line forward this season, but should jump up to a top-six forward in the next year or two.

          F - Drake Caggiula

          The 18-year old from Ontario lit up the OJHL playoffs this past season, scoring 37 points in 23 games (after scoring 34 points in 25 regular season games). Caggiula likely would have come in next season if not for the departure of Brock Nelson. While Caggiula will not be expected to replace Nelson's numbers, he may be able to crack the lineup on the fourth line.

          F - Coltyn Sanderson

          The only member from Saskatchewan on this year's team, Sanderson played his last two seasons in the SJHL at Weyburn. Coltyn dominated this past season scoring 81 points (32g-49a) in 57 games. Sanderson has his work cut out for him, and it is unlikely that he will see much ice time (at least IMO). However, he'll surely drive some fanbases wild if he stays four years at North Dakota. Sanderson is a '91.

          F - Bryn Chyzyk

          And sometimes 'y'...Chyzyk comes to North Dakota from the Fargo Force of the USHL. The Manitoba native scored 28 goals in 57 games last season, good for 8th in the League. Bryn also added 21 assists for a total of 49 points. Chyzyk should push for ice time this season, although likely with the 4th line.

          D - Jordan Schmaltz

          Arguably North Dakota's top incoming recruit this season, Schmaltz was a force in the USHL. The Wisconsin native tallied 10 goals and 31 assists to finish 2nd in the USHL for scoring by a D-man. Schmaltz was also a key force in leading Green Bay to the USHL championship. Jordan is expected to be a top-6 blueliner for UND this year, and should see plenty of time on the powerplay as well.

          G - Zane Gothberg

          Another top-end recruit for UND, Gothberg is coming off a tremendous career in the USHL. The Grand Forks born, Thief River Falls native led the USHL in Save %, and was 2nd in GAA. Zane played the 4th most minutes in the league for Fargo, and was stellar in the playoffs, posting a .942 save % and 1.78 GAA. Gothberg will likely get the majority of starts in net for North Dakota this season.

              Re: Let's Do This Right -- List YOUR Team's Freshman

              Niagara released this notice:

              NIAGARA UNIV., N.Y. – The Niagara men’s hockey team and head coach Dave Burkholder have announced seven new additions to the Purple Eagle family as the class of 2016. Joining the Purple Eagles as freshmen for the 2012-13 season will be Dan Kolenda, Hugo Turcotte, Matt Dineen, TJ Sarcona, Matt Chiarantano, Mike Conderman and Nick Cecere.

              “As a staff we are all really pleased with the seven student-athletes that have chosen Niagara University and our program as their college of choice,” Burkholder said. “My staff is very diligent and hardworking in this area and these players will all be impact players on the ice thanks to their recruiting efforts.”

              Dan Kolenda, a sizeable winger at 6-foot-4 from Superior, Wisc., scored 30 goals, 65 assists and 95 points in 111 games with the Carleton Place Canadians (CCHL). After tallying 20 goals and 37 assists last season, Kolenda was named to the 2011 Robinson Division’s CCHL All-Star team.

              “At 6-foot-4, 230 lbs, Dan brings size and skill to our program,” assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Tim Madsen said. “With Dan’s big frame and skill level, he will have the ability to wear down other teams’ defenseman.”

              Hugo Turcotte comes to Monteagle Ridge after spending the last year with the Grande Prairie Storm (AJHL). He scored a team-high 23 goals, including four game-winning tallies and nine power-play goals and added 33 assists in 58 games. Turcotte, a native of Laval, Quebec City, had played a year of junior A with the Foxboro South Shore Kings (EJHL) in 2010-11 where he had 52 points (21 goals, 31 assists) in 45 games. He also played a year at Winchendon Prep in Massachusetts in 2009-10 where he accumulated 27 goals and 26 assists and was the team’s scoring leader and Most Valuable Player.

              “Hugo brings speed, skill and playmaking ability to our program,” Madsen said. “He has been a proven point producer at every level he has played at, and we fully expect that to translate to his college hockey career at Niagara.”

              Matt Dineen has the potential to be a rock on the blueline for the Purple Eagles, having spent the last four seasons with the Newmarket Hurricanes (OJHL). The 6-foot-1 captain steadily improved his point total each season, recording 14 goals, 59 assists for 73 points in his four-year stint with the Hurricanes. His 25 points in the 2011 season was tied for second best among defensemen on the club. The Newmarket, Ont. native has been a leader on and off the ice for the team as he was awarded the OJHL Humanitarian of the Year Award which is given to the player who has made the most notable contribution to his community, including, but not limited to charitable work, school visits and extra-curricular off-ice activities.

              “Matt is a very simple, smart defenseman that plays with an edge,” Madsen said. “His competitiveness and ability to defend will make him a valuable penalty killer. Matt also brings tremendous character to our program as he was the recipient of his junior league’s Humanitarian of the Year Award last season for his efforts to give back to the community.”

              T.J. Sarcona could play a pivotal role on the Purple Eagles special teams. Playing with the Amarillo Bulls (NAHL) the past two years, Sarcona scored 23 goals and added 35 assists for 58 points in 56 games this past season. The West Islip, N.Y. native collected four power play goals and added three more shorthanded. He was plus-36 and totaled 155 shots, helping the Bulls to the 2011 NAHL South Division Title.

              “TJ is a very competitive, two-way forward who comes to Niagara after a very successful junior career,” Madsen said. “He is hard to play against and will help our penalty kill unit immensely.”

              Matt Chiarantano, the 5-foot-9 defender has scored 18 goals, 80 assists and 98 points in 182 games in the OJHL, split between the Orangeville Crushers, Aurora Tigers and the Georgetown Raiders. He had a career-season in 2011-12 with the Raiders, scoring six goals, 27 assists and 33 points in 43 games. The Bolton, Ont. native was also a member of Canada East’s squad that participated in the World Junior A Challenge in 2010.

              “Matt is a smooth, puck-moving defenseman,” Madsen said. “He is junior tested and will bring depth to our defensive core.”

              The Purple Eagles have also added two strong transfers this season in Mike Conerman and Nick Cecere.

              Rochester, N.Y. native, Mike Conderman, hopes to bring his tenacious offensive play to Dwyer Arena after having spending last year with the University of Massachusetts-Lowell River Hawks. Prior to his stint with the River Hawks, Conderman suited up for 57 games with the Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL) where he scored 11 goals, 21 assists for 32 points. He tallied 31 goals and added 41 assists for 72 points in 31 games for Cushing Academy in Massachusetts. His efforts landed him on the All-New England Team as an East Team all-star.

              “Mike is a competitive, two-way forward who can play in all situations,” Madsen said. “He has the ability to make plays and creates chances for himself and his line-mates through his hard work.”

              Nick Cecere, a defenseman from Des Moines, Iowa, played for the Michigan Tech Huskies last season. Cecere played the 2009-10 season with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (BCHL) where he scored two goals, added assists and picked up 39 penalty minutes before joining the United States Hockey League’s Lincoln Stars the following season.

              “Nick is a simple, stay-at-home defenseman that brings experience and character to our program,” Madsen said. “He also brings an element of size and toughness to our defensive core.”

                Re: Let's Do This Right -- List YOUR Team's Freshman

                http://thebostoncollegehockeyblog.blogspot.com/ has released these comments about BC's recruits:

                Forwards:

                Frank Vatrano- Many consider the 5'10 forward out of Springfield, MA to be the best forward in this class. Vatrano recorded thirty five points for the US National Development program team last season including an assist in the teams 3-3 tie at Boston University. Vatrano played first line left wing for the team most of last year and is noted for having an NHL type shot and is also tough to knock off the puck. This season, Vatrano will need to get a little bit faster to get accustomed to the guys that he will be playing with/against in Hockey East. If he can do that, he will easily be a top three line guy for the Eagles.

                Peter McMullen- The 6'2 forward who played last season for the Vernon Vipers recorded just three goals and four assist last season for the Vipers. McMullen played wing at the start of his high school hockey career for the Delbarton School (NJ) but became a center last year for the Vipers. The problem last year with McMullen is that he only played 22 games for the Vipers (Due to injury I think). While at Delbarton two seasons ago, McMullen recorded a team high forty six points including the game winning OT goal to give his school the state championship. Like Vatrano, McMullen does not have a ton of speed but he can use his body to fight off defenders and can use his big shot to put the puck in the net. I am not sure if I think McMullen will start on opening night or not for the Eagles. I could see him going back to right wing and playing with Mike Sit and maybe a Pat Brown on the fourth line but we will see once hockey starts.

                Brendan Silk- The 6'2 forward out of Wakefield, MA is coming off a year for the USNDT in which he played first line right wing (along with Vatrano). Silk didn't have a boatload of points last year but he did have a goal in the teams loss to Maine in November among other ones. Like Peter McMullen, I am not sure if Silk will start when the year kicks off. He, McMullen, or even both guys could be a part of the fourth line next year if they continue to improve their skating and get adjusted to the college game but only time will tell if they do indeed start for the Eagles.

                Defense:

                Mike Matheson- The 6'1 defenseman out of Point-Clare, Quebec, is one of the more highly touted defensive recruits in recent memory as he was drafted in the first round of the NHL Draft by the Florida Panthers. While playing for the Dubuque Fighting Saints last season, Matheson recorded eleven goals and 16 assist for the Saints which was tops for defenseman on the team. Matheson's strengths are that he is a highly skilled "offensive" defenseman with great speed and nifty puck moving ability in the offensive zone. I think Matheson could really help out on the power play with offensive skill and smart play making. One aspect of his game that must improve this season is his play in his own end. With a small frame at 6'1, Matheson must get stronger as the year goes on to get ready for the big, powerful, forwards that he will face this season.

                Colin Sullivan- A former Yale commit, Sullivan is a 6'2 defenseman out of Milford, CT. Last season, Sullivan recorded 17 points for the Avon Old Farms school and was also named to the NESPAC all league team by his fellow coaches. Like Matheson, Sullivan is a strong skater with good balance and is also is good physical condtion according to reports. When he gets to The Heights and starts his career here at BC, he must get quickly adjusted to the speed of the forwards that he will face. It takes a while for every freshman to get adjusted to the speed of the college game but if Sullivan can do it quickly, he could be a good player during his time at BC.

                Teddy Doherty- A 5'11 defenseman out of the Dubuque Saints and hockey power Shattuck St Marys (MN), Doherty is another guy that will probably start on opening night for the Eagles. Doherty recorded 16 points last season for the Fighting Saints but had nine of those points on the power play. I think that it will take Doherty a little bit longer to adjust to the college game but with more playing time and some coaching, he could turn out to be a solid defenseman. At 5'11, he is a little undersized so I would expect that he needs some polishing in his own end.

                Travis Jeke- A 6'4 defenseman out of the Northwood School (NY), Jeke is a towering walk-on defenseman that may not start at the beginning of the season for the Eagles, but has a chance to crack the lineup as the year goes on. Jeke recorded 27 points (including 16 goals) for the Detroit Little Caesars two season before attending the Northwood School where he had 31 points for the Huskies. If he can improve in a few areas as the season goes on, I think he could play a few games for the Eagles this season.

                  Defense:

                  Mike Matheson- The 6'1 defenseman out of Point-Clare, Quebec, is one of the more highly touted defensive recruits in recent memory as he was drafted in the first round of the NHL Draft by the Florida Panthers. While playing for the Dubuque Fighting Saints last season, Matheson recorded eleven goals and 16 assist for the Saints which was tops for defenseman on the team. Matheson's strengths are that he is a highly skilled "offensive" defenseman with great speed and nifty puck moving ability in the offensive zone. I think Matheson could really help out on the power play with offensive skill and smart play making. One aspect of his game that must improve this season is his play in his own end. With a small frame at 6'1, Matheson must get stronger as the year goes on to get ready for the big, powerful, forwards that he will face this season.

                  Colin Sullivan- A former Yale commit, Sullivan is a 6'2 defenseman out of Milford, CT. Last season, Sullivan recorded 17 points for the Avon Old Farms school and was also named to the NESPAC all league team by his fellow coaches. Like Matheson, Sullivan is a strong skater with good balance and is also is good physical condtion according to reports. When he gets to The Heights and starts his career here at BC, he must get quickly adjusted to the speed of the forwards that he will face. It takes a while for every freshman to get adjusted to the speed of the college game but if Sullivan can do it quickly, he could be a good player during his time at BC.

                  Teddy Doherty- A 5'11 defenseman out of the Dubuque Saints and hockey power Shattuck St Marys (MN), Doherty is another guy that will probably start on opening night for the Eagles. Doherty recorded 16 points last season for the Fighting Saints but had nine of those points on the power play. I think that it will take Doherty a little bit longer to adjust to the college game but with more playing time and some coaching, he could turn out to be a solid defenseman. At 5'11, he is a little undersized so I would expect that he needs some polishing in his own end.

                  Travis Jeke- A 6'4 defenseman out of the Northwood School (NY), Jeke is a towering walk-on defenseman that may not start at the beginning of the season for the Eagles, but has a chance to crack the lineup as the year goes on. Jeke recorded 27 points (including 16 goals) for the Detroit Little Caesars two season before attending the Northwood School where he had 31 points for the Huskies. If he can improve in a few areas as the season goes on, I think he could play a few games for the Eagles this season.
                  What no 5'6" speedsters this year?
                  Fly Eagles Fly!!!

                    Nope, but just wait for next years recruiting class. Enough talent and speedsters to make you drool.

                      And will pale in comparison to Minnesota's. Being completely serious here. No recruiting class will match Minnesota's next year. Might end up being the Gopher's best since the late 70's.

                        I can only guess this invoked a dikkhead remark that would make Hobart Higgins (not sure you will know who that is) blush.

                          Nope. Just sharing thoughts on recruiting classes. Not at all meant to slight BC's class next year, which looks to be stellar. But Gopher fans won't\shouldn't be envying any other team's recruiting class next year.

                          My opinion, of course.

                                I agree Dubbers, with Kloos, Cammarata, Fasching, Guertler, Lettieri, Bischoff and Brodzinski coming in this will be a great Gopher class.
