Re: Early departures: 2016-17

Funny thing is, he wouldn't have been on my Early Departure list. One of my criteria for making the list is that the player is still eligible to play MSHSL hockey. Ryan graduated.

Saw Zimmer on the Steel's 23 man roster. Could he be there for the season or just before and after?

Re: Ted Brill Great 8 Tourney

Players that do not have a college commitment 2. Players that are undrafted in the USHL 3. Players that just ...

He is not on their 23 man roster. Perhaps he was added to their affiliate list or it is a mistake as neither league would allow him to be fostered on two teams at the same time.
