    Though I'm overjoyed by getting commitments from blue-chippers, I've seen this story before. I really hope Nightingale can get them both past the finish line. (Late-stage Comley could get high-caliber kids to commit, but it always seemed like an uphill battle to get them to sign.)

    I'll do a cartwheel once they both sign NLIs, though.

    Dude, just stop! We get it, you hate MSU hockey. But in response to your rebuttal, I'll name you the most recent past national champ: Denver has 2 former NTDP-ers: Sean Behrens and Jack Devine (not to mention former MSU commit Mazur played some games as well). BTW, Behrens was just named to the WJC preliminary roster so yeah, I think I'd rather have a player like him on my team.
    I totally agree. There are 3 Michigan kids on the U-17 team. 2 have committed to MSU and the third might also as his brother (St Cyr) will be a grad transfer this year. I’m not suggesting we should only recruit from the National team, however, I like that we are getting commitments from local players on the National team…something that hasn’t happened in a while.

    Ryan Nolan no longer on the website roster. TBD if it's just another case of Dan Russell administrative oversight/sloppiness by either prematurely adding him or inadvertently deleting him.

    Hmm could just be an error. If true, I would assume the staff is down on the current D-core in some way. Perhaps too offensively inept? Maybe a few of the guys just aren’t at a D1 level?

    I Don’t much like such a move. Forwards often times do not skate backwards well enough to not be a liability when on D full time.
    Roster was corrected today to list Daniel Russell as a forward. Maybe someone actually reads these posts.

    With the release of the roster…a couple of surprises (at least for me). Added is forward Ryan Nolan from Merrimack. He looks to be a 5th line forward. Also Daniel Russell is listed as a defenseman. I can find no record of him having played that position in the past. Not sure what the story is, but if a defenseman he will undoubtedly spend this year learning the position as a practice player. With 10 dmen at least 3 are unlikely to see much ice time so Connor and Dybicz will also likely see little if any playing time.

    The Spartans lost a great friend, supporter and administrator this week when Tom Campbell, rink manager at Munn lost his battle with cancer. For those of you who did not know Tom he was a great ambassador of Spartan hockey and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Tom his family and friends.

    I wonder if Hurtig is facing some admissions hurdles which wouldn't be surprising with an international recruit. That, or someone got some bad info either about the offer in general or the year he's arriving. My bet is on the former though, and hopefully any admissions issues are ironed out by early July.

    However I still don't see where the scoring is coming from to escape the B1G basement. That having been said I have zero expectations for the upcoming season so any improvement from last season means we're slightly ahead of schedule.
    Apparently the issues have been worked out as Hurtig is now official. This should be the last add for this year.

    This probably is the best that Nights could do for this year as many of the incoming spots had already been filled by Cole. That said, this team certainly has enough talent to escape last place.
