    Wow, that's exciting! Given their play in recent years, I'm kinda surprised to see UMass coming in at #3.

    UMass had two defenders taken in the top 50 of the draft

    Zach Okabe has committed to UVM. An '01 who posted 27 points for Shawnigan Lake School Prep last season, he'll be playing for Grande Prairie in the AJHL. Per EliteProspects he is a Canada/Australia dual national.

    Re: UVM Recruiting: The future of Catamount hockey

    Andrew Lucas getting some praise for his performance at recent events:

    https://www.sbncollegehockey.com/col...source=twitter

    "The Alexandria, Va. native was one of the most improved players on the ice the past week. He’s added some size and bulked up. His skating and puck-moving skills have always been his best assets, but he’s added some explosiveness to his game. He retrieves pucks and makes quick, smart decisions on the breakout. His skating is really good which allows him to join the rush and activate while still getting back to defend. He has good feet to side-step forecheckers and to walk the blue line for shots from the point. Overall, he made a positive impact on his team’s possession numbers in both the River Rats Jamboree and the ECC Labor Day Cup. The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders pick will be back for his fourth season of prep hockey this winter at Loomis Chaffee."

    Re: UVM Recruiting: The future of Catamount hockey

    Strong start for UVM recruit Riley McCutcheon, who scored a goal and added an assist in Whitby's 6-0 season-opening win last week.

    THREE Catamount recruits in the lineup tonight for Brooks Bandits as they open their season - the brothers Wiesblatt and Simon Boyko.

    Re: UVM Recruiting: The future of Catamount hockey

    Not to be the downer in this forum, but am I the only person who is getting annoyed that VT born players aren't going to UVM anymore? I know there are probably other circumstance and every situation is different, but legit D1 players don't come out of this state very often and seeing Wetmore, Finkelstein, Samuelsson and now Haskins end up at competing programs is troubling. I know UVM is at a disadvantage having to go in to other Hockey East program's back yard to recruit. Surely we should be making a priority of getting the few players that come from ours.

    On one end I'm of the belief that I don't really care where a player's from; if they're good enough, I don't care if they're from Albania or Burlington.

    On the other, I totally understand that UVM hockey is so deeply ingrained in the Burlington/VT community that I see why this could rub people the wrong way.

    For me it's less about a fan thing and more about the difficulties that UVM has recruiting. It's hard enough to get quality recruits from larger states and provinces, so when high end VT prospects do come along it should be treated as a rare opportunity not to be missed. Finkelstein got drafted, and put up real good numbers last year as a freshman. No doubt he could've helped our team quite a bit.

    I feel like women's hockey does this better with players like Litchfield and especially Amanda Pelkey.

    On a brighter note, I really like what Okabe and McCutcheon are doing very early this season.

    I'd be interested to know, are these kids wanting to go to UVM and getting rebuffed? I think that was the case with Riley Wetmore, but don't know about the others. A lot of Vermont kids want to spread their wings and go out-of-state. That was the case in my day and, based on my own anectdotal evidence, I believe it still is today. Just wonder if that might be a factor.

    Okabe has 7 points in 4 games in the AJHL as a 16 year old. I know it's a small sample size but hopefully it's a sign of things to come.

    Zach Okabe had an assist in Grande Prairie's 5-4 OT loss to Drayton Valley.
    Ocean Wiesblatt had an assist, and Simon Boyko had an assist and the shootout winner in Brooks's 6-5 shootout win over Drumheller in a game they trailed 5-2 with ten minutes to go. What a thriller!
