    Gino Pechora’s development has really gone south. Playing a in terrible league and is 27th in Save %.

    Owen Bartoszkiewicz getting acclimated to USHL, doesn’t have great numbers…Maybe dipping in the portal for a goalie for next year.

    I believe Owen will be good but yes Geno is struggling in a no name league. It’s a shame, I wanted a Geno on campus. You gotta raise your eyebrows a bit when we offer a goalie at age 16 like we did with Geno, I wonder what made him such a lock at that age…

    I think Owen will figure it out too. I just think another year in USHL might be best.

    Minnesota produces a lot of solid starting goalies and we never seem to want one from here.

    Bartoszkiewicz doesn’t turn 19 until March. I highly doubt the intent was for him to enroll next fall.

    Do most schools have volunteer goalie coaches or just UMN? Wisconsin was dominant with goalies for a long, long time. They had the same coach for eternity and it worked out well for them. It always made me wonder why we insist on the ever-rotating goalie coach.

    If you were a goalie and had your pick of schools, would you pick the school with no long-term goalie coach plan?

    I think for some odd reason hockey is restricted to a number of coaches and goalie coach is a luxury. But I am not certain.

    It seems odd to not have a permanent, paid goalie coach at the level.

    Teams are only allowed two paid assistants, so a paid goalie coach is pretty rare.

    ^^^^ This.

    Rob Stauber was the U’s volunteer goalie coach from 2000 – 2008. Not sure who the goalie coach is now.

    Makes sense, but felt like the names after Stauber were lacking. Just remembered we got the Mankato guy so hopefully that works out with stability.

    Just like how the Director of Hockey Ops is a kid that literally just graduated. Think that’s odd for one of the big programs in the country. Who else applied?

    Bill Howard is the badger goalie coach in question. He was a volunteer coach from 1972 to 2008. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of a payed goalie coach.

    Scott Wheeler posted his top 64 prospects for the 2022 draft today. Ryan Chesley is #20.

    20. Ryan Chesley — RHD, U.S. NTDP, six-feet

    Chesley’s counting stats aren’t where he’s used to having them (or where first-round picks usually have them) this season but I haven’t actually had serious issue with the way he has played. Most of the underlying numbers are still there, he’s defending well, and he’s still regularly demonstrating tools that project. He’s a sturdy four-way skater who plays hard, defends with tight gaps, commands his ice in control of the puck, and plays with a boldness offensively that sees him join a lot of rushes and frequently attack off the line to use his point shot (which comes off of his blade hard). I don’t think he’s a particularly creative player (there are times when he would benefit from slowing things down both offensively and defensively) but the other makings of a good top-four defender are there.

    Chuz Lucius is #46

    Jimmy Snuggerud is #48

    What other NCAA kids are on the list?

    Chesley was mentioned as a top 5 pick last year. Appears to be falling down lists after a slow start points wise.

    I’m not all that tuned in to other teams recruits, but it appears the highest American kid is Logan Cooley ( Notre Damme recruit) at #9. Then Isaac Howard at #11, Frank Nazar #12, Rutger McGroarty #14, Seamus Casey #17. Those are the American players that are before Chesley. Jack Hughes ( Northeastern ) is the 1st college kid on the list at 22. The only other college kid on the list is Jack Divine from Denver @33. Bunch of the U18 kids on the list.

    Was another year in the USHL the plan for Kurth? Was always under the impression he was a 2022 lock.

    Helps that he’s already 207lbs, should be able to handle physical aspect of college hockey. Different than bringing in Brody Lamb at 165lbs.

    If that’s the case then that’s too bad. I don’t anything about Mittelstadt but I was excited to see what Strobel brought to the team. I will fully admit that part of it was me wearing the “player-had-a-good-state-tournament” goggles but from everything we heard from and about Strobel he seemed like the kind of player we could really use.

    Nothing is impossible. If the 3 senior forwards leave, and maybe Meyers and another wildcard leaves…. Remember, the portal makes it easier for players who play on the 3rd or 4th line and are unhappy with that role, to leave for another school.

    Meyers will have suitors after this season, I know the Wild are interested as Bill Guerin has been around campus this fall.

    And he was in someones development camp this summer on the east coast. I think it was Boston’s, but not 100% on that.

    Edit– I did find him on the Bruins camp roster.

    And Meyers recently turned 23 years old, he likely signs after this season after getting a max free agent offer, hopefully from the Wild.

    He might, but he is the same age as Casey Mittelstadt, so there’s that. He’s a really good player & great kid, however it turns out.

    I could see Meyers going either way, little more likely to leave.

    Any thoughts on Cruikshank? Think he’ll take a 5th year or try his hand at pro hockey?

    Lucius signed. I’m guessing the other two did too. NTDP didn’t announce theirs yet. Usually that’s when they get back. Lucius might have just been in a hurry to.

    We’ve seen weirder things. All it takes is for someone to get in his ear.

    However, at this point he does not pass the eye test…not even close. He needs to stay at least until he gets to that next level.

    Snuggerud seems to be developing rapidly. From solid, four year guy to potential high draft pick. Expect him to contribute early next year.

    Quick USHL update.

    Kurth is 6th in the league in points and 2nd in goals.

    Luke Mittelstadt is 1st in goals and 2nd in points by a defenseman

    Also, noticed Logan Cooley not pictured…. Maybe he doesn’t end up at Notre Dame.

    If he is indeed available I’d bet all my chips on Michigan

    Little write-up I saw from Chris Peters on the USNTDP U18’s play at the Five Nations Tournament:

    Jimmy Snuggerud, RW: It was a breakout tournament for Snuggerud who bookended the tournament with hat tricks. He has a great release and can score from in close as well. I liked the pace he played with, too. He had two exceptional games and two where he was fine. That’s why you take some caution with the international events, but there’s no question his stock is up after this one and will earn more serious looks as a upper-tier prospect as a result.

    Snuggerud has been on fire lately

    6 goals on 10 shots last night for Owen Bartoszkiewicz. Woof! Almost a 4 GAA and .860 save% this season.

    Watched Rinzel yesterday. Tall kid with a lot of raw talent, but a pretty smooth skater for his size. Fun to see Chaska with a Broten and a Spehar. Spehar was small but very good (guessing a freshman or sophomore).

    I saw that last night too, yikes. Also saw a tweet this morning on BC’s last three #1 goalies, Spencer Knight, Joseph Woll and Thatcher Demko. All of them played in the NHL last night. Pretty crazy.

    He was pretty solid in the NAHL last year, but has really struggled this season in the USHL

    Why is Chesley’s production taken so much of a hit this year? I’m not worried he’s still a great player with first round potential it’s just weird. If he falls to second round that may mean we get him for two years instead of one though :wink:

    1 and done? That’d be a mistake.

    I hope Cruz Lucius is healthy by the time they come here. Would be fun to see all three commits and the brothers go at it.

    Also Nick Williams removed Minnesota from his social media bios

    Been expecting this for years now.

    If the players make the right decision (rare), only Faber would go pro. Johnson probably because of his first round status, but mehhhhh, he is going to struggle to break into the NHL right away.

    Lacombe should stay.

    Staudacher/Lacombe/Fish/Koster/Mittelstadt/Thomas/Chesley/Some other body for the roster

    Even with the above I would be okay offering Brinkman the extra year if he wants it.

    I bet all three of Faber, Johnson and LaCombe sign. Not saying it’s the best option for the latter two but I’m banking on it happening.

    I think at least one of those three stay. I think there will be better options in portal than giving Brinkman a 5th year.

    Good that Fish is getting some games, Motzko said on radio show we’ll see more of him in second half.

    Yes, the probability of all three going is above 50%, I’d say.
