    Greenmountain Glades (EJHL) had a rough time at their own Woodchuck tourney over the weekend...outscored something like 18-4 . RPI target keeper Dalton Izyk played half the game Sunday, allowing one goal in the Glades' 4-1 loss to Springfield.

    He is officially 6'6", 250 according to the team's measurements. Doesn't look it unless you're up close...

    WOW...as my father undoubtedly would've told Luke if he'd had the pleasure of meeting him: "I wouldn't want to go into a corner against you!"

It sounds like he won't be going to a US college although OHL teams have been wrong before.
    Beyers has been playing for Barrie in exhibition games https://www.thebarrieexaminer.com/Art...aspx?e=2746465. Thus, he won't be going to RPI or any other NCAA team.

    We're quickly approaching the point where this is becoming an even less desirable result than losing players to other NCAA teams. Honestly, I'd have much rather seen him go to Madison than to Barrie if he wasn't coming to Troy. Sigh.
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    I am in complete agreement. The NCAA seems to be getting the short end of more and more battles with the major junior leagues recently.

    The Hubster attributes it to daily Flintstones Vitamin (which the B.R.O. still takes)...I know, however, that it's because he ate what we ate from the very beginning. We were poor; I refused to buy baby food. So whatever was for dinner went into the blender (steak, pizza...if I made it, it went in the blender...add milk). He's been drinking coffee since he was two...and his love of spice came from forcing us to give him home made salsa (9 alarm! ) as soon as he saw us eat it...I KNOW all of that pulled the governor switch off of the growth plates...

    It would be very nice but I don't think that is why...but it does give time for plenty of conversation...

    Yes...it seems it would be better to have a chance to 'stack up' against someone who didn't chose RPI. With what's happening, that is not possible (at this level, at least)
