The Athletic’s Scott Wheeler looks at the 2022 draft with his top 22. It includes 2 Gopher recruits, Ryan Chesley, and Cruz Lucius. Snuggerud is listed as a keep your eye on player.


Here is a couple of quotes– Lets hope the thought of both Lucius brothers playing together will keep Chaz here a year longer than expected.


Lucius will join his older brother Chaz at the University of Minnesota after his draft year, and I’m already excited at the thought of the two of them playing as a duo because of how well they fit together.


Chesley has consistently impressed me with the NTDP (of late with notable 2022 prospect Lane Hutson as his partner), flashing impressive four-way skating and puck skill on the offensive side and a tight gap (which sometimes includes an open ice hit) that snuffs out a lot of rushes in the neutral zone defensively. He plays a bold game.
