  • Re: RPI 2011 Recruit Thread Pt. II

    when I was talking to Riley Sat. night he's a little taller than me, I'm 5'11", so I'ld guess 6' is about right. He also just turned 17 in August so lots of time to grow. Listed at 187lbs., he's all of that. My comparrison would be O'Grady.
    Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

      I'm happy to have underestimated his heighth. I will say that there were 4-5 kids on Berkshire who were taller than he was.

        I'm fairly certain that none of the names of current Jr. Red Wings d-men have been mentioned on USCHO. Nothing cryptic about this message - but if there was info about someone it wasn't disseminated here.

          Perhaps the recruit is now playing for a different team? I don't recall any such visitor last year.

            I think I now realize who you might be referring to: Evan McEneny ('94 defenseman), who was listed on Heisenberg's 2010 page as playing for "Hamilton Midget" as a 2012 recruit. McEneny signed with Kitchener (OHL) in the offseason.

              That's the kid I was thinking of, thanks KN. (I deleted my post as I second-guessed myself)

Add to the fact that he'll be 21 by the time next season starts, older then some of the current freshmen and sophomores on the team right now. I can see JL being one of RPI's top point producers next year, there might be a small adjustment period coming up from the CjHL level to college but I dont see that being to big a problem.
                I agree completely-although much will depend on how coach SA decides to utilize JL. If he gets significant powr play time or not, if he gets enough minutes on one of the top lines, etc. This kid has shown he can score-I don't think the step up to the NCAA will alter that.

                  Incidentally, to the best of my recollection, McEneny visited the same day as John Hayden who, as noted here, just signed with Yale for 2012. I believe the (correct) speculation on here is that these must have been informal visits on the players' own dime per NCAA rules. McEneny's going (semi-)pro indicates that he was probably never really interested in us at all. I tend to believe (and this is just speculation) that we were probably very interested in Hayden and simply lost out to a school that is far superior academically and (sadly) athletically (at the present point in time).

                    I don't think I have been properly appreciating the full extent of JL's dominance of JrA hockey. I had thought that his stats weren't much better than previous guys we've had (Oren Eizenman and Jon Ornelas come to mind) who took some time to adjust to NCAA hockey. However, looking back, his stats are far, far better than either of those guys (who played in very similar leagues).

                      Im not 100% sure but I think players cant make an official visit to a school until they are a senior in high school, so Haydens visit with Brunswick teammate Kevin Duane last season wasnt an official one. USHR says Hayden picked Yale because he wanted to remain close to home, his hometown of Greenwich is less then an hour away from New Haven.

                      As for McEneny, I believe he was visiting with Pat Koudys that night. Both were teammates for a little while last year in Burlington.

                        Fear not Doc, I don't think Seth has any intentions of making a grinder out of him (ONLY kidding) Seriously, I think he'll be given every opportunity to earn significant offensive responsibilities. The rest will be up to JL and his work ethic -- including his commitment to off-season conditioning.

                              Thanks Ralph. Great article. This only reinforces what I think most of us believe and that is that SA is one of the best recruiters if not the best recruiter in the nation. He is a road warrior and an incredible salesman. We should enjoy the pipeline of players that he is putting in Troy.
