I wonder if Wood is reconsidering at this point...

In all seriousness, three late adds (Gruba/Pahlsson/Falloon) are really taking this class to the next level. We all love our August 1st junior commits but keeping slots open late working well for Motzko and staff.

Can anyone tell me if it’s odd that we haven’t seen Gopher Instagram or Twitter confirm Wood coming here?

 

Unless I missed that.

Bit unusual, though maybe they are not really tracking the Transfer Portal. Enough connected sources have reported to know it is a done deal.

A lot of programs don't announce their transfers until deep into the summer.

Players need to sign their financial aid/financial tender documents before anything can be announced. Some schools take that seriously like Minnesota.

Will this year's FAFSA delays cause any issues with the LOI process?

The NLI is a different deal and won't have an impact. The only issue is if a player doesn't do the NLI and is a walk-on relying on an aid award for school. Those guys are always late to be official anyway though.

Over at the rink in Plymouth for Selects (or “HP” as it’s called now). Mostly for the girls side of things, but I see Gavin Katz is playing for the Section 1A/1AA Boys 17 team. They play at 3:45 today. Anxious to get a look at him.

Anything less than predicted four-time Hobey Baker winner will be a disappointment.

abstinent GIF

I watched one full game and half of another one. He shows the hands, vision and skating as advertised, it’s just that I was expecting (hoping) for a little more. He didn’t really jump out above the crowd. Definitely an interesting player and the sample size was pretty small.

Nice goal from Whipple. Ziemer with 3 assists. He’s a real play driver for that NTDP team. Maybe doesn’t get the credit he deserves.

If Ziemer gets a little bigger he should be a real nice NCAA player.

A) he’s 5’11 so it’s not like he’s even that short

B) I think he’ll be a real nice NCAA player regardless

The US dominated SOG in the 1st, but my feed has been complete garbage so I've not been able to pay attention at all to what's happening.  It was frozen probably 90% of the time. I will see if it improves for the 2nd period but not holding my breath.

Ziemer looks good.  Strong and physical, also good hands.  Works hard and plays smart.

Whipple could use some strength, has been playing on the PK in spite of being the 7th D.  Would like to see Koster back with Whipple to USHL similar to Hendrickson.

I think it'd be best for Whipple to get another year of junior hockey in before playing college. A Gopher Hockey schedule isn't the easiest place to grow your game and find confidence, especially for a defenseman. Ultimately it is up to him since he signed the NLI already, but ice time won't come easily the way things look right now.

agreed completely. and with next year only Koster for sure gone (with Chesley and Rinzel probably being the next question marks; Thomas I've seen almost no info on from the former Yotes, Mittelstadt will be back, as will Gruba) you don't want to start burning your eligibility to play as a 7th defenseman now if you're looking to develop as much as possible in college with a reasonable number of D in the pipeline as well. Better to come in with more experience and be ready to go/assert yourself for a slot
