If Larson lets Mika come back (and I don't know why he wouldn't), it appears the entire defensive corps will return except for Borgen. It'll be interesting to see how they handle the defensive recruits. Bushy, Perbix, Meier, and Ziemer are all available and eligible. Ziemer will most likely spend a year in juniors. Meier will likely be asked to spend another year in juniors as well, not necessarily because he isn't ready, but because he's willing. If they bring in Bushy and Perbix, they'll have these nine defensemen:

Mika Ilvonen, Sr
Jon Lizotte, Sr
JImmy Schuldt, Sr
Clark Kuster, Sr
Jack Ahcan, Jr
Tyler Anderson, So
Lucas Jaycox, So
Nick Perbix, Fr
Brendan Bushy, Fr

Some very talented players will be watching from the press box every week if this is what they end up doing.

Also, the Huskies typically carry 15 forwards on the roster. They may just run with 14 due to the deep defensive corps. I don't know what they plan to do with Enebek or Hentges, but I'd be surprised if either is on campus next fall. Hentges was performing brilliantly early in the USHL season before going down with an undisclosed injury.
It's almost like it's something bigger than yourself.

The run of virtually no injuries is bound to end at some point so if we can have an extra body I want it. That said I'm a little indifferent on Ilvonen coming back. As long as we're not losing anything in the process it's great but not all that exciting.

Another new wrinkle, as Nathan Burke was just selected early in the USHL draft. This strongly indicates he is NOT going to be on campus this fall. This leaves the Huskies will the following forwards...

Patrick Newell, Sr
Jacob Benson, Sr
Robby Jackson, Sr
Jack Poehling, Jr
Nick Poehling, Jr
Jake Wahlin, Jr
Ryan Poehling, Jr
Kevin Fitzgerald, So
Easton Brodzinski, So
Blake Lizotte, So
Will Hammer, So

...and the following potential freshmen...

Nolan Walker
Micah Miller
Sam Hentges
Henry Enebak

I really don't think Hentges or Enebak will be coming in next fall, which means the Huskies will almost certainly add one or two more forwards not currently listed above.

Maybe. From all indications Larson has said he is done recruiting for next year. I think Enebak is not coming at all but Hentges may be ok even with the injury plagued season.

Someone really needs to inform the university that a good portion of their season ticket holders don't live in Cloud, but would like to go to these events. :cry: :roll:
