Faber is the only bantam.

YHH speculated on the invite list. They had these 8, plus Gleason and Miller. Always interesting to see if any Minnesotans go.

In addition to the Minnesotans there are a ton of Minnesota-near kids. Eau Claire has one and three from North Dakota border cities.

Minnesota had five invitees last year (NY had nine), so it is nice to see them reclaim their rightful spot atop the list. The only Minnesotan to make the U17 roster was Drew Helleson (Farmington/Shattuck). Who are the best bets of this yearís group? Surprising to not Gleason on the list - perhaps he turned down an invite?

A few random observations...
1. UMD and Notre Dame lead the way with for commits apiece, while Minnesota has two. Notre Dame typically recruits hard from the NTDP, and the son of their Associate Head Coach (Slaggert) is on the list.
2. Quite a few late-year birthdates, who are typically at a disadvantage compared to their peers in terms of development.

Gleason is an '01, he's too old.

Because it's a NTDP camp...not a Blake camp

All kidding aside the list is solid and one could argue a couple kids were left off just like every year

Five Minnesotan's offered spots:

Blake Biondi - Hermantown
Brock Faber - Osseo-Maple Grove
Owen Gallatin - WBL
Connor Kelley - Maple Grove
Jack Smith - St. Cloud Cathedral

Tough 24 hours for the 2018 Crusaders with the Motzko news yesterday and now Jack Smith.

Man, itís getting to the point where Maple Grove is lucky to have one high school season from their best players. Obviously it is great for the overall association to regularly be sending kids to the NTDP, but the high school team is missing out on some great talent skating for them.

Are we thinking they will all accept, with the exception of maybe Biondi?

Anyone know how much time they give the players to decide if they are accepting or not?

Good for him, Cathedral will be loaded next year.

What is Motzko's kid going to do? I assume the family moves to the cities?

He currently attends a Catholic High School in St. Cloud. On the radio yesterday they speculated that the new coach would live in Woodbury because that's where he lived when he was an assistant coach at the U. Are there any good Catholic high schools for hockey players in the Maplewood/Woodbury vicinity?

Hill-Murray, St. Thomas Academy, and Cretin-Derham Hall certainly qualify.

The football coach bought a house near the basketball coach. There is a house under construction next door to the volleyball coach. I don't know that Woodbury is a lock unless Motzko has already said that is where they'll live. There is no shortage of nice communities for a family relocating to the Twin Cities.

I didn't know Hill Murray had a hockey team. Thanks for the info.

I have no idea where Mack Motzko will end up. I'm sure there are quite a few folks who hope he's playing for the Crusaders next year. I would be shocked if a few families haven't already offered up a spare bedroom.

On paper alone, next year looks like it will be Cathedral's best team yet. I've heard rumblings that they have even beefed up their schedule with a few more legitimate AA teams next year.

Again, I have no idea where he will end up. I'd imagine it would be tough to leave your buddies with such a good thing going. But, wherever he ends up will have a really good hockey player.

Wouldn't be surprised at all to see him stay there. Parents aren't that far away and he's old enough to drive.

Iím going to push back on this comment a bit. Would you have the same opinion if Smith accepted the offer? I realize this is a high school hockey message board, so we are inclined to be happy when the best players donít leave early, in large part because it improves our experience as fans. But isnít that a selfish perspective, and shouldnít we support whatever decision the players and families feel is in their best interests?

The NTDP is not for everyone given the commitment and sacrifices involved. However, there is no arguing the success of the program in developing players and preparing them for college and even professional hockey. The young men in the NTDP play a ton of games against high-level opposition, and also have the privilege of representing their country in international competition. I just donít see how you can criticize any player for choosing that route.

It's his opinion. If you are offended easily, than this forum is not for you.

That is correct. The NTDP is based in Michigan, and the players move there to train and attend high school. The season spans from September through April, so it is very much a full-time commitment. USHL teams are the primary competition, though there are also international tournaments and the U18 team plays against several college teams.
