I missed going to the Cathedral / Alex game at the MAC last night but caught a little bit of 7 section finals here...https://www.prepspotlight.tv/MSHSL" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; full games are available to watch again. I watched the Cathedral (coached some of the players way back in squirts and mites) game and Blaine (Brodzinski)/ Maple Grove game mostly. Too bad Doherty was sick. Cullen Hiltner was player of the game for Cathedral. Play with his dad... Too cool!

There's the 8th defenseman I was expecting the Huskies to get for next season... though I wouldn't be surprised if they delay/cut Ziemer (Motzko recruit) and find yet another.

The only downside is that it's starting to create a bottleneck further downstream. Of Miller, Piironen, and Bushy, I wouldn't be surprised to see all three delayed and/or cut. Miller is particularly at risk because he's a Motzko recruit. Behind them is Peart, Opilka, and Beacom.

Only flight risk I see is Nick Perbix, but he's not putting up a flight risk type performance quite yet. Plus, he may be tempted to stick around long enough to play against his brother and/or cousin a few times before he takes a stab at pro hockey.

Evan Bushy would be a true freshman in 2020-2021. He's the most likely to be brought in if there's room, but there might not be room. He won't be cut.

Funny to think that freshman Trevor Zins would be five months older than senior Ryan Poehling if (by some miracle) Ryan decides to return next season.

Just noticed that Brock Baker is listed as "uncommitted" on the USHL website. Not sure if that means anything, because he still lists himself as an SCSU recruit on his Twitter profile. He hasn't played for Sioux City since mid January ending on a 11 game pointless streak. He was Larsen's 10th recruit.

I do wonder if Larsen wasn't a bit too eager to fill the pipeline with young, high potential recruits to hedge against a potentially lackluster season. Some of his (and Gibby's) guys are looking like rockstars (Kranilla, Kupka, Okabe, Bushy), but some don't look worthy of the #1 team in the nation.

As for Motzko's legacy recruits, I don't see a lot to be excited about. Larsen is looking at some tough conversations if he hasn't had them already.

I wouldn't mind seeing Troumbly here, although I admittedly haven't seen him living in CO.

Also you have Baker listed twice on your spreadsheet, FYI.

Just an FYI, I have checked the USHL profile for Brock and it's never been updated. The elite prospects lists him for 19/20 which doesn't seem right for his age.

I don't trust EP for class designations. Too many variables to consider, so I usually do it myself based on information and educated guesses. Of course, even the coaches have only a decent idea who'll be coming in for any given class based on how much things change. I penciled him in for 2020 and I think that's pretty fair for now.

Christian Miller unloads a cannon shot and Greenway goes up 5-4 on Delano! (3rd goal of the season)
Donte Lawson with the empty netter! 6-4 SCSU Alumni Coach Grant Clafton (Grand Rapids HS)

I really like how physical Ben Troumbly is, takes the body a lot.

2 shows ago Larson also said, Kuster was coming back next season, so that puts us at 10 Defensemen for 19-20. Achan is either leaving early and or Ziemer is going to get pushed back or cut (although pushing Ziemer back 1 year, puts us at 12 Defensemen in 20-21).
