With the departure of 12 seniors last season, UWSP has a large recruiting class coming in, 15 players in all. Head coach Wil Nichol now has a team primarily composed of players he has recruited and this may be the breakout year for the Pointer hockey team.

Incoming freshmen are:

Forwards
Justin Johnson
Nick Kenney
Alex Handy
Sam Graham
Donnie Hallmark
Kyle Greco
Johnny Meo
Chris Annunziato

Defensemen
Jon Bockman
Brandon Busse
Sean McNeely
Taylor Kuypers
Tyler Krueger

Goalies
Nick Graves
Alan Armour

On paper, the recruits look extremely skilled. Add this to the high scoring freshman(now sophomore) class of last season and Point could really cause some significant problems for NCHA teams.

Just 3 more than the graduating class, looks like a plan to me:cool:

And three players are not returning from last year's squad, so it's 15 to fill 15 spots. I believe Point's roster will stand at 27, so everything is in line.

Yeah, because:

1. No one ever leaves a team in the offseason.

2. There are never any better players available than the ones already on the team.

or

3. Every recruit brought in always plays.

points 2007-08 leading scorer josh calleja to river falls this year. Transferred to RF last year and is now eligible. I know its next to his hometown so guessing that was one of the reasons.

I've been looking into Alan Armour, the goaltender recruit from Selkirk (MJHL), everything I've heard about him is great. I think this is a fantastic pick-up for UWSP in the goaltending department. Two thumbs up. I hope I get to see him play at some point.

Yeah, he looks to be pretty solid. There will definetely be a fight for the #1 spot in goal this season.

I watched him at the Chicago Showcase back in 2007 and he played great against the best HS competition in the US.

Since then he has done a bang-up job for two years in the Canadian juniors.

He'll have to battle with Pointer incumbent Thomas Speers, but look for Armour to have the job at some point in the next couple years...

Yeah, I think Speer is going to have a real battle on his hands keeping that #1 spot this season.

Don't sell Nick Graves short, either...

Talking with others guys out of the MJHL, they say he could be a toss up..

Guys say when he's on he's on, but when he's off he's off.

You can't dispute that he was on Selkirk either, with that kind of team around him it's easy to cruise to the MJHL tendy of the year, not to take anything away from his efforts in net.

It will be interesting to see what happens.
