    Sign the lad up! I love G2O's attitude towards recruiting. Paraphrasing: "We're gonna go after the best players, and if they leave early we'll get more."

    "One of the top prospects in the 2019 recruiting class took a look at UW last week.

    Massimo Rizzo, a 15-year-old center from Burnaby, British Columbia, had a “wonderful experience” on an unofficial visit with the Badgers, his father, Remi, said in an email.

    Rizzo plays for the Burnaby Winter Club program under coach Maco Balkovec, who was a UW defenseman from 1991 to 1995.

    Granato and associate head coaches Mark Osiecki and Don Granato have seen Rizzo play, Balkovec said, a sign of how invested UW is on recruiting him.

    “He’s a guy that looks like he’s on a path to play in the NHL, that’s for sure,” Balkovec said.

    Rizzo has 18 goals and 68 points in 39 games for Burnaby’s prep team. With the Bantam team last season, he scored 60 times in 61 games.

    The Badgers have competition from a number of colleges as well as the Western Hockey League’s Kamloops Blazers, who made Rizzo their first-round pick in last year’s Bantam draft.

    Rizzo could forgo NCAA eligibility and go to major juniors next season — two years before he could go to college."

    I like the odds for UW here. With Maco as his coach that can't hurt and they couldn't have brought him in at a better time than to see UW score 11 goals and sweep!

    He would instantly be on the all-time Badger all name team.

    Mersch, I'm just not that sure about right now.
    You still have Aleksi Peltonen for 2017, but you did move Jesper.

    Just a thought....it is possible that the staff could bring in Cruikshank next year. He turns 19 this summer and is putting up nearly a point per game in the BCHL.

    Forgot to clean out the original entry. I had him as a Freshman in '17 and '18.

    Cleaned up now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Change Jesper to an incoming Freshman in '18. He's in as a Soph two years in a row. Although, to be fair, most of these guys are academically at least Sophomores when they come in.

    I believe he committed to Eaves, then de-committed from G2Olast fall? UNH is nowhere to be seen, I guess he likes losing. Best of luck.

    Yeah, tough season for UNH. Yet, they've still managed to win as many games this season as UW did in the previous two combined. Perhaps a new goalie and coach will also make the difference for them. It would certainly help if they played in the west's version of Atlantic Hockey, but I'm sure they'll do their best...

    Not sure what gave me the bigger chuckle. Comparing the B10 to Atlantic Hockey or a UNH fan talking s**t on a badger thread. At least UNH will have one less team to look up at when ND comes to the B10 next year. Come back when they've won something.

    I think Gildon's quotes make it pretty clear.

    That's why I didn't replay to the d-bag...I tend not to feed trolls. Like my grandpa from Czechoslovakia once told me in broken Slovak, "Richie, if you want to **** with the big dogs, you gotta lift your leg a lot higher."

    It's apparent Max couldn't.

    Mic drop.

    Seems like the coaches are looking for skill and speed up front regardless of size. Weissbach seems to be a great late pickup considering UW beat out Denver and Michigan. He was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars by Neutral zone. I think this team is going to really fun to watch when they have it filled with th type of players they feel best fits their system. With speed and skill up front and high-end defensemen making good outlet passes and jumping up into the play, I'm excited for the future.

    Wisconsin gets a commitment from Burnsville MN forward Roman Ahcan. He is the brother of St Cloud State defenseman Jack Ahcan.

    He seems to have had a good year with Burnsville this year but it's tough to judge his potential off one season of actual offensive output.

    Saying that, I like the get. Jack Ahcan is a great player at SCSU and if Roman is anywhere near his brother we should be in good shape.

    Does anyone know where all this scholarship money is coming from? Or is G2O somehow convincing above average players to take less scholarship to come to Wisconsin?

    This turnaround if happening way faster than we all predicted.
