    The names look like they're affixed to the back with white tape, which is why the white jersey's look the best.

      Yeah...haha. Jake Oettinger's jersey even looks like there's another name patch underneath it! Maybe that's the tape.

        Wasn't that part of the premise for the league - cheap jerseys, etc., to try and mimic adult pickup games?

              No, it's because these guys are short on cash.

                      Motzko told Sammy Walker (160 lbs.) this summer to get in the weight room and add some strength to his game. Apparently he's put on 20lbs since his Big Ten Freshman of Year season to beef up his inside and corners game. Having lost 12 players last season, it looks like as the BMW line goes, so the Gophers go. As a sophomore, I think Sammy wears the "C" this season and will be expected to take the lead up front and on the PP. He says he's ready.

                      “I think in open ice, you see that speed. But I think what he does in traffic — his compete level and how he fights for pucks — is as important,” Motzko said. “We’ve all seen players with speed that sometimes stay on the perimeter. When he gets in traffic, he’s a hockey player.

                      "The bottom line is you make hay inside the dots. His speed is electrifying and makes him dangerous, but what makes him superb is what he does in traffic.”

                      Former Edina and Notre Dame star Bo Brauer was the recipient of Walker’s set-up passes at the goalmouth on more than one occasion [Da Beauty League]. Having played with Walker’s older brothers in youth and high school hockey, Brauer sees plenty of traits that will mean future success.

                      “Two-on-twos aren’t easy when you’re going up against a couple NHL defensemen, but when he gets the puck and gets up to speed you’re just trying to match it, and he put the puck right on my stick a few times,” said Brauer, who plays minor league hockey in the ECHL. “Unreal hands, unreal vision, he can fly up the ice, and that’s a good recipe for a goal-scorer.”

                      “I’m trying to just keep improving. We’ll have a young team, but man, we’ll have a lot of talent, and I think we’ll be able to do something with it,” Walker said. “It should be a fun year. It’s kind of crazy that I’ll be one of the guys that they look to, but I think I’m ready for it. I’m just excited for the year.”

                          Same here...I'm totally in on Motzko's "young and exciting" mantra. Been wondering about Jack Lafontaine, he's not on any Gopher roster yet. Anyone know if he's registered for classes this Fall?

                            Doesn't look like it.

Not recommended at the U and extremely rare with student-athletes. Let's see what happens. Looks like he didn't sign a NLI yet, he's a verbal.

                              We might be looking at 18 year-old Jerod Moe, Winnipeg Jets 6th rounder and SJHL goaltender Justen Close in a rotation this Fall.

                              Similar to Robson at 6’3″, 205 lbs, Moe was ranked 10th among North American netminders by NHL Central Scouting. Close, from Canada was a SJHL Goaltender Of The Year finalist last season and co-winner the year before. Robson was the first Canadian to be on the team since Kris Chucko (Burnaby BC) and Peter Kennedy (Brookfield/Truro NS) in 2006.

                                Suddenly less than 24 hours later, LaFontaine is registered. Haha...
