    So, now that we are back...

    Brody Stevens and Tommy Miller have entered the transfer portal hoping for a 5th year elsewhere.

    Casey Gilling is headed for UMD...so cross him off.

    Lewie has been announced as returning to MSU for a 5th year.

    Assuming no one leaves early, that leaves spots for 2 forwards. One is a mystery transfer. No idea who that could be, but there are several that I could get excited about in the portal.

    Daniel Russell has been having a good year in the USHL and could be added to this class.
    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:

    Cross off Combs. He just signed with Wichita Thunder.

    Gilling certainly looks to be the most likely candidate. Now, if Grant Cruikshank (in the portal, but not a grad transfer) was interested I’ll grab him.

    Combs feels obvious, which would be great.

    Apap and Miller earned B1G all-academic honors so I feel like they may be more likely to continue school as opposed to jumping to the ECHL or something.

    i wouldn’t be opposed to Apap or Miller, but there is a logjam at D and I’d like Cole to get his guys in here.
    I'm opposed to both Apap and Miller because they've had 4 seasons to show what they can do, and there's been little progression. Miller in particular is a head scratcher since he was at the NTDP on a stacked team. As you say, Cole needs to switch things up with some new blood.

    The transfer candidates could be endless since the prevailing sentiment is that there will be a ton of player movement in the offseason given the new rules.

    For better or worse, I have a feeling that you can add Tommy Miller to the potential seniors taking advantage of a fifth year. Not that I'd advocate for either him or Apap.

    Only speculation on the grad transfer would be a Charlie Combs type who is using a 5th year to get some of his graduate degree paid for while playing hockey an additional year.

    As far as the other two, probably some combination of Combs, Lewandowski, and Apap. Anyone else would be a shock.

    The seniors other than Combs were the last class not recruited by Cole. Hoping to make it to double digits on the PP and 2 goals per games next year.

    Let the speculation commence! But seriously, all things being equal that's probably just as well because anyone in the USHL who's not already signed for next season isn't particularly ready to come in anyways.

    Ah and so ends another chapter in Spartan hockey. It ended as so many do these years: In round 1 of the league tournament. They almost had me excited for a while, there!

    I was curious because Illinois has already invested in looking to start a D1 men's team (although it may be delayed now with the pandemic financial hit) and if the Title IX women's sport they have to add would also be hockey then the Big Ten is only one team away from the minimum six needed to start a women's conference. I thought perhaps at least facilities wise MSU would have been a strong candidate to be that sixth team. I wasn't aware of the financial problems with the athletic department.

    There is definitely a women’s club team, along with a men’s. I am not sure what sort of schedule women’s DI uses but I imagine they could be hosted at Munn. If not, then Suburban, the community rink just off campus would likely be fine.

    but like others have mentioned, adding a DI women’s team is nowhere near a priority at the moment.
