The USHL has become a "younger" league compared to the days when I was involved in hockey. At one time, you finished high school or Tier 1, THEN went to the USHL, THEN college as a 20 y/o freshman.

    Today, as young as Bantam and Midget age kids (15, 16, 17+) are playing, with less playing at 19 or 20*. A good example of this is Craig Smith who left Madison LaFollette High School (a traditional horrible hockey program) after his sophomore season (2005?) to play for Waterloo.

    *I don't have stats to support this; I'm going by the rosters I read in the game programs.

    I'll continue to go to Capitol's games to support the program when Bucky's out of town.

    You are 100% correct that it is Great hockey.

    I had season tickets to the Badgers when I lived back in Benton, but moved to Cedar Rapids in '05. I have been going and working (Off Ice Official) for the Roughriders. The caliber of players in this league is top notch and you are seeing it in the past few NHL drafts. I highly recommend checking out the league if the Badgers are out of town.

    I noticed 4 future Badgers:

    A-Inamoto
    C-Ess
    C-Gildon
    C-Messner
    Gildon's rating is surprising to me....I had seen him projected as a first rounder in mock drafts at the time he committed.

    Has anyone heard if Stillwell, Ranta, or Parsells are hurt? None of them have played yet which seems odd.

    That's ok, he'll be at WI 3 years instead of 2. He's been bouncing up and down the D pairings, though that team's lineup changes all the time.

    And I have him on the sheet for '20-'21 based on what I have heard to this point.

    Pulling a young lad out of the darkside, I love it. I just hope they can sprinkle in some high end Canadians in the future, though I understand right now G2O's connections are more US based than Canadian.

    2000-born forwards Jack Jensen and Luke Loheit, both of Minnesota, have visited as well."

    I can't seem to find "The List" (did you say list?) of recruits G2O has landed since they hit the recruiting trail; right up to Ben Helgeson. The spreadsheet is awesome in it's own right, but just a list of commits since late March.

    Thanks!

    I do have post April commits listed on the spreadsheet listed with an exclamation point before their name if that helps.

    Bowers just committed to BU. Now he has to change the spelling for his last name to Bowahs.

    No worries. What will be interesting is how many of the recruits from '05 and before start dropping off the list....

    Who knows who they have had in for a visit and who they haven't. I would think most coaches miss more than they hit on in the men's recruiting game. At least he's going out east.

    I believe there has been a few other misses along the way. Nice to see Wisco back in recruiting battles over top players like Bowers.
