    Well, it's down to UConn and Lowell. Merrimack ('03, '06, '06) and Vermont ('05) picked up commitments. UNH also added an '05 today.

    • UConn gets a commitment today leaving Lowell the only HE program not to get a commitment since the beginning of August.

      • The USHL preseason begins this week with the regular season starting on September 22nd.
        Adam Cardona is no longer with Waterloo. He's now listed on the Omaha preseason roster. Other Hawk recruits on USHL preseason rosters, Jak Vaarwerk (Des Moines), Shawn O'Donnell (Dubuque) and Daniil Dolzhenko (Youngstown). Game Center (ushl.com)

        The BCHL preseason begins this week with the regular season starting on September 23rd.
        Ben Brunette is with Penticton and Jaiden Moriello is with West Kelowna.

        Cole Eiserman is heading to Minnesota.

        • There are teams with more '05 and '06 commitments than we actually have in total commitments.

          • I wonder if Norm has decided to recruit less and use the transfer portal more?

            • Less than one month left till the start of the 2022/2023 season, and this is where Lowell is in terms of the roster for this year, and what the roster currently looks like going out the next couple of recruiting cycles (the first look I've put together for 2024/2025.

              Obviously, there will be transfers in and out (or Meehan leaves early), and I'm speculating on all current 6 commits coming in for 2023.

              The "fun" of this exercise, at least for me, is to look ahead and see where the holes are in regards to how these classes need to be filled out.

              I went back and looked at the last two years on something I was curious about. As of today, we have 6 commits for the future. A year ago, at this point, we had 9 (two of whom decommitted after, Dauphinais and Harper). Two years ago (so going into the 2020/2021 season), we had 10 (Kerner and Bayless decommitted after). So we're definitely behind on the trend at least.

              22/23 roster

              Defense (9):
              Seniors: Marek Korencik, Jon McDonald

                The no goalie approach is a bold strategy. Curious how that will play out.

                  • Jar Vaarwerk is centering the top line for Des Moines this afternoon. According to the line chart, his RW is a player named Girts Silkalns, who played for Latvia in the World Juniors, and is listed as a Lowell commit (he's an '03).

                                You keep listing Dauphinais as decommitting, but the NAHL website and his own Twitter page both list him as a Lowell commit.
