Welsch was on Aberdeen and backed up Vernon for the NAHL’s Robertson Cup. Didn’t see any playoff time. Vernon is an age out so he might be given a chance to play there next season.

Howe - player U18 Blades last season. Mueller - May have hung up skates to pursue education. His brother played for the Blue Ox - the tier 3 JA group out of Coon Rapids owned by Bruce Boudreau. AFAIK - MN Blue Ox had interest in both Howe and Mueller as Bruce’s kid Brady was aging out. Unsure about Daninger. Travis Allen (2000) saw some time late in the NAHL season as he was covering an injury.

The path of the above mentioned is hard to guess or gauge. Do I see a late bloomer or commit such as Lake State commit Seth Eisele (98) or Army West Point’s Justin Evenson who both played their senior years in MN HS hockey? Hard to say.

02 same as 01s. Showed a lot of promise at 15/16s. It’s really early for them, but not impressed by the depth so far. The good lads are pretty small framed, but hope to see them develop over the next 2-3 years. One of the best ones from the north (who shall remain nameless) chirped some pretty bad things at a few players I know and apparently his character was full of issues at a junior camp. No commits yet.
I am 100% sure I know which 02 you are talking about.

The hardest things for MN goalies at this point (after they graduate) - is they have 2 full years until they age out. You better nail one of those tryouts or you’ll end up playing a lower tier of junior and then have 1 year left etc etc. The window closes quickly.

Yeah. People are aware of his character. We will see how he reacts after this recent serving of humble pie....

Now you have me thinking. What 02? The ones I know of from the north 1/2 of the state don't really fit this description.

I'm guessing nobody is going to directly identify, but there are enough clues above that should make it obvious.
