Technically, hockey teams can carry as many players as they want, but they only have 18 scholarships to divide up between them and there are only so many players they can dress or have locker room stalls for.Sid wrote: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).
Also heard that Ryan Poehling's good buddy Enebak is still going to come in as a walk-on and that Ryan may stick around due in part to Enabak plus an attempt at pursuing free agency.
What does all that mean? I have no idea, but I expect Jaycox, Anderson, Perbix, Bushy, and Meier to get plenty of ice time and Zins and Trejbal should get every opportunity to play right away. That's seven WITHOUT Ahcan or Kuster. I don't see how Kuster gets any time, much less Zeimer. So, even if Zeimer is deferred and Ahcan leaves, Kuster will still be the odd man out. Huskies will have another talented blueline next year no matter what.
