    I hope it wasn’t Team USA’s choice to use Party in the USA as their goal song…

    After a sluggish start with a few too many penalties, Team USA is starting to play better and getting more chances.

    Seems strange, but each teams top 3 players are named before the medal round.

    Since this seems to be the spot for the Under 18 tourney….the US  is down 4-3 to SWE in the gold medal game early third.

    Swedish goalie has been lights out.

    I’m usually a little skeptical when someone gives me shots on goal but good grief 51 shots…and to give up 4 goals on 14 shots? Oof.

     

    I guess the story of this one is goal tending.

      I didn’t watch the entire thing but it was clear that Sweden’s goalie was making some ridiculous saves and the US goalie didn’t really have one in him.

          Maybe Swedens goalie wants to come play college hockey…

            Watching the U18 tournament this weekend, I see a lot of Ryan Lindgren in Ryan Chesley’s game.

              Rinzel seems like one of the highest upside players in the pipeline. With a year in the USHL after his draft year, curious how long he is on campus.

              He’s still raw enough (senior year next year), that the expected number of years on campus should be around 2.5. If Faber stays three years, no one other than a physical Lindgren type should be leaving after two.

                Pretty sure Lindgren left after the coaching change too which isn’t a typical scenario.

                  I think Bob hasn’t been doing the whole 5th year thing because it would cause a backup in the recruiting pipeline. Since we only have 3 forwards lined up for fall 2023, I wonder if Bob tosses a guy like Nelson a fifth year. Undrafted so he wouldn’t have an NHL team breathing down his back, and would be physically imposing as a 5th year (already is). Good for both parties. Obviously a year away but I wonder if we see Bob and co. start to use that option more down the road.

                  Every time I see a new post I here I get excited for some actual news about additions for the fall… And now I might be doing the same thing to other people.

                    I also don’t know how much pro hockey is in Nelson’s future. This is just a rumor I’ve heard from a couple of people involved in hockey down in SW Minnesota but apparently when he’s done at the U he might give the pros a shot (probably the minors) but would eventually like to go back down and farm.

                    I keep thinking there is more to Nelson’s game that hasn’t come out yet. He’s physical and has some skill, but  he hasn’t put it all together. I get a little irritated watching him shadow opponents when they have the puck. He’s not nearly disruptive enough for me, and, with his size and strength, he could be.

                    He has the pro physique, but he’s a long way from signing an NHL contract.

                    At this stage in their careers (entering year four on campus), we know who players are and massive leaps are rare.

                      Rare but not unheard of. I could see him being a 10 goal scorer this season.

                        I’ve seen Chesley in just about every first round mock draft in the 25-32 range, and Rinzel in quite a few. When’s the last time we had 4 first rounders in the same year?

                        I’m guessing it will be three. It will be interesting to see how many Michigan gets, too. If they get more near the end of the first, it likely means they’re taking the spots from guys like Chesley and Rinzel.

                        I’d think 6 or 7 from the two teams combined.

                          Every time I see a new post I here I get excited for some actual news about additions for the fall… And now I might be doing the same thing to other people.

                          Maybe we should get GoldyShuffle to have his/her own thread.  Since they seem to have all the “ins” and “outs” of Gopher Hockey.  And only they can post in it… Name it ‘Goldy’s Truffle Shuffle’!!!

                          Devils fans don’t seem to see Cooley fitting team needs so he will likely go 3+.

                            He seems to be like Mittelstadt (magic hands and creativity), just improved in like every facet of the game. A super high ceiling but honestly it might also benefit from 2 years before going to the NHL… Not that I expect it.

                              2 years seems realistic barring a coaching change. 1 year wouldn’t be entirely unexpected but if Michigan’s players are any indication then 2 years seems likely.

                              Michigan has worked it another way, though. They are getting a lot of their top end guys in their draft eligible years (Power, Johnson, Brisson, Fantilli), which allows them to get two years more often.

                                  2 years is unexpected but would be sweet. A lot of the time the team that drafts him matters in this. Hearing he’s likely 3rd overall so Arizona. They might want him after a year.

                                    Mittelstadt will be playing for the Clark Cup. He is the only Gopher recruit still playing in the USHL finals.

                                    Corey Pronman mock draft. He has 3 future Gophers in the 1st round. Chesley/Rinzel seem to be inner changeable for most late in the 1st.

                                    3. Arizona Coyotes: Logan Cooley, C, USNTDP-USHL

                                    Arizona’s starting from scratch, and getting a potential first line center is a great way to start this iteration of the rebuild. I would imagine whichever of the top three prospects gets here will likely be the Coyotes’ pick.

                                    23. Anaheim Ducks: Jimmy Snuggerud, RW, USNTDP-USHL

                                    Snuggerud’s projected draft slot has been tough to nail down, as I’ve heard some sources say he could go well into the teens, but others view him more as a 20s type of pick. I lean to the latter. With the Ducks getting Korchinski at 10, adding a goal-scorer with size to put next to Trevor Zegras or Mason McTavish would be a nice first round for them.

                                    30. Arizona Coyotes: Sam Rinzel, RHD, Chaska-US High School

                                    Rinzel has been a name I’ve heard floated as a late first/early second candidate for a while. He’s got a ways to go development-wise, but the toolkit is awesome as a 6-foot-4 defenseman who skates well for his size and shows some offense. He’d be a good swing for Arizona’s second first round pick.

                                      Chesley has such an NHL projectable skill set it would be tough to pass on him in the late first round. Nice combo of offense and defensive physicality. Sounds like a Lindgren that can score.

                                        From what I’ve seen he has a little more flash than a Parayko type but I guess Parayko would have flash if he were playing MN high school😉

                                        I just remember watching Parayko play against Mankato and it was a man amongst boys scenario. I can’t remember any Gopher d-man like that in the last 15ish years in terms of overpowering size+skill.

                                        He was listed 195 as a freshman and 218 as a JR. I’d hope the same for Rinzel. I don’t need too much flash from a guy like that.

                                          If Rinzel gets picked in the first round and goes back to high school for his senior year, one would think that’s the first time that’s ever happened right? A first rounder playing high school hockey lol only in mn.

                                            He won’t go back to HS hockey anyways, especially if picked in the first round.

                                                It’s going to drive everyone nuts though if he keeps playing on that side of the ice while on the pp.

                                                  Looked inevitable but glad to have something official. Looking forward to watching Lamb’s development.
