On Twitter I saw that Chaska named their captains for next year and Pitlick is not one of the four. I’m not saying he is gone, but I would think that would be a little telling

Pitlick is a Feb 01' birthdate, no way he comes back plus he already let Omaha know he will be in ushl next season.

Pitlick is openly unsure at this moment. Nothing secret. I’m sure the team and him mutually agreed that since it’s up in the air, no need to have him as captain.

As for birthdays, Clay Hanus is a March ‘01, and if he were still in high school he would be eligible to play next year as a senior. No reason a Feb ‘01 couldn’t play either.

According to GB on a different thread, Pitlick repeated a grade late in his academic life. You only get so many years of HS eligibility.

Hill Murray announced their captains for next year and Oberle is not one of the four. A little suspicious.

There was a question on this from a different thread

My thoughts as of now, not much to go on really except Pitlick for sure leaving and Biondi probably for sure staying

Below will stay for senior year, unless indicated by comments

Blake Biondi Htown UMD Looks to be Staying-Captain
Jake Braccini Buffalo U of M Probably Staying
Matt Gleason CDH CC
Teddy Lagerback Mtka ASU
Jonny Meiers EAG CC Maybe leaving
Blake Mesenberg BSM Uncommitted
Zach Michaelis ELK Omaha ?
John Middlestadt EP U of M
G Pinoniemi HF U of M Maybe leaving
Rhett Pitlick Chaska U of M Leaving
Carson Richels BL Uncommitted
Nate Warner SCC U of M

Jake Boltmann ED U of M Maybe leaving
Wyatt Kaiser ANDV UMD
Brett Oberle HM UMD Maybe leaving
Nate Schweitzer BSM CC

I would be shocked if Michaelis stayed in Elk River for his senior year.

Minnetonka had announced Bobby Brink as their captain last spring as well. Not saying I am in the know on where Pino or Biondi will end up, but I wouldn’t use the captain label as definitive evidence of staying.

The window to join the USA NTDP U18 team has come & gone for Biondi...so he will be playing before & after in the USHL and for Hermantown during the HS season. This makes him the leading Mr Hockey candidate entering the 2019-2020 season.☝️

Cake, I will bet you two rounds of golf at Interlachen that Boltmann doesn't go to Blmgtn to play Juniors next year. In fact If he does go to Bloomington I will treat you to two rounds at Spring Hill. Bet? GB

Do the teams that compete in the summer tourney bring all of their guys or are there usually some key players missing?

Depends on which weekend, but in some cases there are conflicts with other sporting (hockey) events so there are usually some missing

Thanks for the heads up on his EP page being wrong. I have fixed it to 20-21. I didn’t enter in his commitment another volunteer did who clearly didn’t check his grad year (which is not always the best indicator, but typically what we go off of)

No worries. I should have contacted you directly. Thanks for the work you do!
