    Looks like a very promising goalie, the number one thing we need. That's what did us in last year, poor, inconsistent goaltending.

    they took a yr or 2 off and I guess they r back...as for the Sunyac,Buff st has a player with 121pts in a league all their own.....a few big 6'6 + guys coming in and for Oswego Jackson played a semester last yr and Sneath played in the southern division of the USPHL was the leadin scorer,but against what competition??,I am sure he has some skills,I am sure Oswego will have a few more to add, as will other schools,usually we know only little about the transfers coming in,and those leaving their schools.....Best of luck to'em all.

    I guess my thought was a 6'6" 17 year old who is actually good enough to crack Utica's lineup would likely have enough upside to make a NAHL or USHL roster. I believe both of those leagues do not cost money to play in (I know for a fact the USHL doesn't). Honestly, the most likely scenario is Backdraft's speculation..

    My feeling is a 17 year old is either not ready for NCAA hockey, or they are clearly ready (see Michigan's Zach Werenski).

    Edit: just looked, the USHL is indeed totally free to players. The only player fee's associated with the NAHL are a $300/month payment to the billeting family (if housing is required). Certainly a lot more affordable than farting around in one of the mid-level Eastern junior leagues

    Regardless, I do wish the kid the best. A year from now I'll be happy to say I was way off base if he turns out to be a contributor on the blue line for Utica.
    10-4 I also hope he is a productive player at The U.

    But in 4 years (as opposed to 7) he's in the workforce.

    I am going to say he probably has no chance of making it through the NCAA clearing house for a D1 scholarship. Not many Russians wind up with a scholarship at the D1 level.
