    I think the Cats have done pretty well in the portal. Riedell would've been a great add, but it is what it is. Stucker seems like a player with something to prove. Definitely motivated by the chance to get a pro deal. I'd imagine he is only here for a year.

    Robbie Stucker to UVM from Minnesota for next season. Senior.

    Per Mike McMahon, Philip Lagunov is headed to UVM via the portal. Scored an absolute BEAUT of a shorthanded goal in the national championship game.

    Also, it turns out Will Riedell is *not* coming, he's flipped to Ohio State

    Not much going on right now anywhere, but here's some video of Jesper Tarkianen that came across my Twitter today. He'll be coming in next season.

    I think also part of it too is, what does the staff think of Cole Hudson? Do they see him in the Feeley/Beck role, or do they think he's a bona fide #2? Or perhaps they actually want to have 3 usable goalies in case of emergency? Most of the guys in the portal either are trying to transfer up to win, or transfer down for playing time. We're not ready to win yet (this is a long-term rebuild), and with Carriere I'm not sure how much playing time will actually exist for some of these guys.

    In terms of guys currently in the portal that have been reported, with 1 year left of eligibility (assuming the Swedish kid Mangbo is a 2022 which I *think* he is, so you're just looking for a filler guy now)... it's mostly AHA/low end ECAC guys (Brian Wilson, Eric Ferland, Luke Kania), the UAA guys (since they're probably cooked although I hope they somehow survive!), and unused third goalies. And then Galajda, but he is certainly looking for a contender, which we are not.

    Yeah those two are almost certainly going to be a year away now that we have some actual depth in numbers now. Most of the blueliner recruits of ours are 2022 at the earliest; we needed numbers now

    Will Riedell from Lake Superior as a grad transfer https://www.eliteprospects.com/playe...1/will-riedell

    Cory Babichuk from RPI looks like he could have 3 years left since he didn't play at RPI this year https://www.eliteprospects.com/playe.../cory-babichuk

    Joe Leahy from Cornell could have 2 years left since he also did not play this year https://www.eliteprospects.com/playe...1/joseph-leahy

    So I think that shores up the blue line a lot more.

    Goalies looks like Harmon, Carriere and Hudson (3)

    Defense: Kelly (?), Long, Petrello, Lucas, Schiavon, Riedell, Babichuk, Leahy, Finley, Munzenburger(?), Barnett (?) (7 to 11)

    Forwards: Hamre, Jordan, Comeau, Bouqout, Lemay, Zaperinick, A Tinling, D Tinling, Vitolins, Mountain, Tarkieinen, Jellus, Walther, Schachle, Buyalsky, Maatta (16)

    Could be more changes a few of the younger recruits might come next year, but the max amount right now is 30 players potentially
    LOVE THIS!!! Was wondering when the millions of players in the transfer portal was going to start to pay off for us. Sounds like these guys could be a big help next year. Would be cool to see if they could find another experienced forward in there as well. Mullin was great for this team last year and there is sure to be someone else who could help them. Wise and DeBoer from BU or TJ Walsh from Northeastern are all guys who have showed promise in the past but just need more of an opportunity. Is there a place where the list of players in the portal can be found?

    Based solely on the EP pages I really hope the coaches wait on Muenzenberger and Barnett for a year. Neither of those guys are ready yet. Barnett was playing the MAJHL last year. Not exactly elite level development hockey.

    Waugh is in the portal, so that ends that confusion

    I hope they wait on Muenzenberger. Definitely a player I'm interested in, but I think a year (or even two) in the USHL would be smart. Grant I think would be a huge help to this team next year. If they could find an experienced grad transfer that would be ideal. An older freshman might help as well. The D group needs help right away.

    The extra year of eligibility is gonna be really interesting. M & W basketball are going to be exciting to watch and the W hockey might be the best they've ever been. Already looking forward to seeing these teams in person next year.

    I assume Luca Muenzenberger is coming in next season unless he goes USHL for seasoning.

    Brian Kelly and Owen Grant are both seniors who aren't in the portal as of right now, so I assume there's a chance one or both stays. If they do that at least solves the defensive depth issue for a bit.

    This offseason is going to be fairly chaotic.
