    If it is a player looking for a 5th year then Nick Prkusic is possible. 2 time captain at Robert Morris from Brooks Bandits.

    If it is someone who may have graduated in 3 years then Pierre-Luc Veillette is possible.

    Beyond these two I guess Sternschein or Gresock or Loughran can’t be eliminated, although unlikely. Griffin Loughran has scoring potential, but also a disruptive force with lots of penalty minutes. Anyone else I missed?
    We have a winner! I guess we shouldn't be surprised that Loughran is staying relatively local:

    He'll fit right in with the Krygier twins.

    Been reading up on Regush. He did accelerate to graduate this year. He is in transfer portal because Ivies don’t allow grad students to play. So, certainly a good possibility.

    Assuming MSU doesn’t take another from the portal, they have room for another forward. Russell seems the most ready.

    I’m still unsure if Cesana will be back. He is quoted as saying he is planning to, but there was that kiss of the ice with the seniors. If he (or a K twin) jumps I would expect Feenstra to be added this year.

    As far as lack of an announcement...My guess is there is still some uncertainty about a player.

    I had overlooked Regush since he’s only played two years. With the Ivies not playing this year he has two years of eligibility and could possibly graduate early. He would be an excellent pickup. Looks to be a business major, so would be a good fit for a Broad MBA.

    As far as Williams, I’m not sure if MSU decided to pass or he didn’t want to wait until there is a spot in 2022 when MSU will have an opening.

    I still expect Russell to be added to this class. The others will likely be told to stay in the USHL another year.

    Here’s hoping for answers soon.
    Of the F trio of Russell, Wallace and Shoudy, I suppose Russell is the most ready. But the fact that he hasn't been announced at this relatively late date tells me otherwise, not to mention a variety of other reasons. As you say, time will tell.

    It appears you're seeing what I'm seeing available in the transfer portal. I could add some names to your list but personally wouldn't recommend guys from weak leagues with all due respect to the AHA, or struggling programs. I'm relucant to speculate further since my track record has been so poor, but since my hubby tells me I just can't help myself, another transfer who might not necessarily be a grad is Michael Regush from Cornell. Lots of goals and a winning program to boot.

    Finally, unrelated to the portal, I just noticed from Heisenberg that goalie Jack Williams is no longer committed so we'll be in the market for a G recruit. Hard to determine since Waterloo of the USHL guards their line charts with their lives, but I trust Heisenberg's sources.

    Wright apparently off the board and to Denver, no surprise there as it's a much better program:

    Cross him off your wishlist...going to South Bend.

    Non-conference schedule looks to be Miami, Air Force, Ferris (h&h), GLI, and probably Colorado College, U-18, and a Canadian college.
    Funny you should mention Adams' Notre Dame destination, as I noticed that last evening and came on here wondering if anyone had any other recruiting news to share. Odd that all these transfer portal destinations are being announced yet radio silence from EL..... sigh.... I imagine lots of guys still in the portal will be finding homes in D3.

    Nice summary of where we're at.

    Big DRW draft pick Jack Adams is apparently now healthy and in the portal, so he replaces Casey Gilling on my wish list:

    This was reported a few days ago by the unofficial "Northeastern Hockey Blog" https://northeasternhockeyblog.com/r...-northeastern/

    Still no official confirmation.

    Miller would apparently be a transfer portal plug-in replacement for Mike Kesselring, who left after two seasons for the bright lights of Edmonton (or wherever its affiliates are located).
