    This could be it unless there is a surprise add or someone leaves.
    Goalies - Minnie, Lethemon, Wright
    Dmen - Osburn, Gatt, Rosburg, Eliot, T. Miller, Farmer, Ghafari, Chrek, Scarsella
    Forward - Saliba, Appleton, Hirosi, Khoderenko, Lambdin, Milan, Sanford, Pavelek, Kamer, Lewandowski, Keefer, J. Smith, Stevens

    Heavy on dmen so no reason for Apap this year unless Someone leaves this summer. Only one extra forward, but MSU could get by.
    I like Apap's size, but with a right-handed stick it's critical that Stevens stays on track for 2017-18. That or someone to take his place.

Either Cole wasn't going to honor his verbal or he decided to take off due to the coaching switch. Sort of an interesting development as far as traditionally meager summer news goes.

    His USHL numbers (4 goals in 48 games) indicate a 3rd or 4th line player...my guess is Cole recinded the scholarship offer and LSSU offered for 2018-19.

    Appleton, Sanford, Gatt as well as Saliba, per MSU Hockey Twitter

    Appleton seemed obvious enough. Maybe Gatt because he will be a senior who stepped up his game this past year. I guessed Sanford purely because he won the Fitness award at the banquet and that seems like a captain-y thing to do.

    Saliba is an interesting choice. The kid must have leadership in him to be named as a sophomore.
    Nice trifectasaurus!

    An offensive leader, a grinder and a senior. I would not have expected Saliba, although he did wear the 'C' his last year in juniors.

    I'll toss in Rosberg as well.

    I really have no idea, though.
    My thought was it's a puck-moving defenseman. As long as its not a goalie I'm happy

    Still not great, but what a comeback that was yesterday! Eight year losing streak gone and now we get OSU who we took two of three from a few weeks back.

    If we make it to the final Minnesota will be the likely opponent. #2 in the country and only given up more than two 4 times this season.

    And baseball took down first place Nebraska last night in Lincoln! Holding onto the last spot for the Big Ten Tournament.

    Is it? I don't believe the entire freshman class is signed. You can find commitments but those are pretty unreliable. Last year had some players added that I never heard of until players reported to campus.
    I also remember a few years ago on collegehockey.com we had a commit from Bob Pond for months. Bob Pond ended up at MSU...Minot State University.

    I'd love it if college hockey recruiting received anywhere near the attention that football and basketball has.
    Notice I included the word "appears" . But OK there could be one more.

    I am assuming that if Kamer is committing for 2017-18 in May, he is coming to campus this summer. That would make 4 scholarship players and a walk-on. If Brody Stevens and Jake Smith arrive as well (as advertised) that's a healthy roster. Through graduation or end of eligibility MSU opened up 6 scholarships, besides losing Knudsen and Selep.
