    Tyler Kelleher's numbers speak for themselves.

    After 28 games in Andrew Poturalski's first season in the USHL, he has 6 goals and 12 assists. Poturalski turned 19 on Jan. 14th. Poturalski primarily plays center.
    Last season, Mike Vecchione (as an 18 and 19-year-old) scored 10 goals and 19 assists in 49 regular season games. Vecchione is primarily a right-winger.
    Good luck with him. Talked with GM from top 2 team this weekend and he laughed when I asked about the comparison of the two. He and 4/5 other teams offering a ton to get him for playoff run,

    Watch this video CHC when Tri City played your recruits team a few weeks ago.

    Or watch this one this past weekend.

      Mike Vecchione turns 20 next month and has become a better player in his 2nd USHL season.
      Andrew Poturalski just turned 19 and is in his 1st USHL season. Only time will tell how much Poturalski improves next winter when he turns 20.

      Vecchione has earned the recognition he is now receiving from USHL GM's. I don't see the merit in comparing him to a first-year USHL player.

      I've always believed that Vecchione would have a good shot at excelling at UNH.

        Just turned 19 and other turning 20??
        They are 10 months apart age wise and are both incoming freshmen.

        Watch the video of their game against each other a couple weeks ago and see the difference. Or watch the game last weekend.
        Good luck....

          CHC, not worth it arguing with him. Remember, this is a guy who thought Malcolm Lyles was great.

            Funny you should say that

            Good or bad, he will be playing pro after season is over.

            He didnt go from being a first team BCHL all star to a back up. Coach brought in new guys and wants to build with them, which is his right

            Lyles will end up at forward and will play pro, several teams lined up already. probably as a project

              Hokydad,

              Your consistent comments about Mike Vecchione are likely not being received in the manner that you had hoped. Your comments appear to be doing more harm than good, and may actually bring fans to root against Vecchione. I personally have nothing against Vecchione, and am sure he's a great kid on and off the ice. However, I doubt that he wants any of the negative vibes that you may be bringing his way. It is quite clear to everyone that you have a strong association with this kid. So, if you care about him, perhaps you should rethink how you phrase some of your posts pertaining to him.

                Bazin didn't just bring in "new" guys. He brought in better guys. And you want people to believe Lyles will go from playing 1 game his senior year at UML to to some prized, sought after free agent? This is why I can't take you seriously. Even when you're proven wrong, you can't admit it.

                  Your torch carrier CHC posted something so I respnded.
                  I dont think a few UNH fans rooting against another teams player is a remote concern. If someone is shallow enough to let that sway them it must mean one thing, they have a unh degree. I do though get your point and agree

                    And that is the problem with hoky. He simply cannot separate his emotions based on these alleged associations with certain players.

                          Like you just did? On that note I will do just that

                          Nice grammar
                          "we get Mr Vechionne you have prove"
                          "you would tough our lives"

                          UNH would be proud to know their alums are doing so well and holding down the 7-3 slot at Seven Eleven

                            Now that is some serious HARM we're talking about here!

                            The interwebs is serious bizness!

                                I see Mike Vecchione as a tragic figure.

                                He had the lifelong dream to play at UNH, at least that is what we hear on this board. UNH liked him enough as a player to recruit him, but when it came time to come in the coaches decided he needed more time to develop, right or wrong isn’t important to this part of the tragedy. UNH wanted him to develop playing in juniors rather than sitting on the bench and in practice on campus. (Note: I am not saying the UNH coaches were necessarily doing this for the right reasons, I honestly don’t know either way. This was potentially a numbers problem on scholarships too; we can all count players on a roster and speculate.)

                                Mike apparently also had a lifelong dream to play college hockey starting the 2012-2013 season. (Otherwise why did he so quickly bail on the first so important dream?) He clearly felt UNH was wrong, he was ready now, the indignity of it all, and was probably getting some whispers in his ear about how fantastic he is as a player. So on some advice from somebody in his life he believed he was ready right now. Mike decided not to go to UNH but instead he would have a bunch of other Hockey East teams banging down his door to come in right away. When that didn’t happen we heard about other Div I teams banging on his door, for right away.

                                As it turns out Mike head back to juniors for another year of seasoning, since by the outcome, the rest of the Div I hockey coaches agreed with the UNH assessment – Mike is going to be a good player but needs to develop. By all evidence that seasoning has worked and Mike is now a better player. Now Union is a fantastic school and it is great he is going there, I wish him the best of luck. He has probably ended up in the best situation, like most college players he isn’t likely to go pro, and Union will provide a fantastic education opportunity. Please note it is the kid who makes the school not the other way around, so Mike must take advantage of this opportunity.

                                The tragedy is he lost both his dreams: first playing for UNH (with some apparent emotional pain), second playing in college in 2012-2013. All we can hope is he learned the lesson of the tragedy he lived. From my view in the audience the moral (at this point of the story) is listen to the unbiased observers in your life for the real advice, if the advice giver is to close they may be biased or worse yet tell you what they think you want to hear. If you are very unlucky they may just be clueless on the subject, so clueless in fact to not know it.
