The primary junior leagues (e.g., USHL, BCHL, and USPHL) officially name "Players of the Week". Occasionally, the UNH recruit I highlight has also been named "Player of the Week" in the league they play in. When this happens, I point it out in my writeup.
Of the current recruits, Jason Kalinowski and Christopher Miller are the oldest - they will be 20 years old next season and are projected to enroll next fall. If the coaches decide to replace the 4 departing forwards with 4 recruits, that leaves two other openings.
In terms of points scored to date, Liam Blackburn has 43, Marcus Vela and Brendan van Riemsdyk each have 22, Patrick Grasso has 13 and Ara Nazarian has 7. Assuming UNH doesn't land another top forward recruit who's ready to enroll next fall, it looks like Blackburn, Vela, and BvR are the front runners to be the 2 additional forwards coming next season.
14-year-old Joel Farabee (DOB: 2/25/2000), a left-shot forward, has committed to UNH. He currently plays for the Selects Hockey Academy 16U team based at the South Kent School in Connecticut. More details to follow on the blog.
