Hopefully he can get the Starting spot!

And just as much, hopefully we play them next year!

Always liked Driscoll, was disappointed when he left the team :)

Based on his age and size, I'm guessing Burke is coming in next year. I'm also guessing that Sam Hentges will be deferred to 2019. Sam proved he was more than capable of handling USHL hockey, but injuries have limited his playing time and he was relatively young compared to the other recruits the Huskies have lined up.

I think the only threats of early departure up front are Ryan Poehling and Eyssimont. If either of those two leave, I think the odds are even between adding a late recruit versus bringing in Hentges.

I'd add Robby J to the early flight risk list, dude is SO good and I'm sure there are scouts watching him closely as he's having a breakout year

Nah. Robbie knows he'd be an AHL/ECHL player next year. Plus, he's undrafted, so he knows his value goes up if he plays through his senior season and hits the open market. After this season, he'll only get a few feeler offers from a handful of teams.

Eyssimont is a different story because he's drafted. The Kings know that if they don't sign him there's a good chance they'll lose him. Plus, I think Mikey has a different view about college than Robby does. Just a gut feel.

Poehling is a huge flight risk because he can get a big 1st round offer. The main thing keeping him around would be his brothers, but I would guess they wouldn't discourage him from taking the deal. They have his best interests at heart. A secondary thing that might keep him around is the prospect of an NCAA Championship. Huskies will be a top 4 team heading into next season. Without early departures, almost everybody is coming back.
