Grimaldi

Cool, he's a freshman all over again, eh?

Nodak got him an extra year hoping he'd grow into a 5'8-9" monster.

Grimaldi flies under the radar

He is a academic or "true" sophmore but an athletic or "redshirt" freshman... he will be, as I understand, be eligible for WCHA's ROTY award this year.

I think Grimaldi will be the top of the pack. Other NTDP players say that he's unbelievable, despite his size and he looked it in his few appearances last year.
An under-the-radar freshman would be MTU prospect Jujhar Khaira (BCHL) who went to Edmonton in the third round.
He's a big kid with a hot stick that will see lots of ice time at Tech.

I think Benik will give Grimaldi a run for his money. I think Mike Reilly will have an immediate impact too, but might not get the opportunities right away that Benik and Grimaldi will. Just my $0.02.

I think Andy Welinski could be a sleeper on the defensive side of things for UMD this year.

I'm thinking Andy Welinski and Austin Farley for UMD... Brady Skjei for the Gophers? Anyone know anything about the the Reilly brothers?

Mike (the youngest, and a defensemen) is the most talented. Smaller in size, but highly skilled. Broke Joey LaLeggia's BCHL record for most pts scored by a defenseman. 4th round pick by Columbus in 2011. Starred at Shattuck before playing in Penticton (BCHL) with his brothers. Had 24g-59a-83pts for Penticton last year.

Of the twins (Connor and Ryan, both forwards), Connor is the more talented of the two. Had 35g-51a-86pts for Penticton last year. Has a lot of offensive upside, but his smaller stature should make him a 4-yr college player.

Ryan will probably see limited ice time his first few years IMO, but should will probably fill a 3rd-4th line and PK role eventually.

Matheson from BC will be in the conversation. Will play top 4 minutes and see power play and possibly pk time. Had a great 2nd half last year after a bit of an adjustment period in the USHL.

Cool, he's a freshman all over again, eh?Yes he is. Played a whopping 3 games last year. Can't wait to see this guy play at 100% for an entire season.

He's a first round draft choice, so he could be. Will probably depend on how soon the Rangers need him. From what I've read, they aren't going to rush him. My guess is that he plays a few years at Minnesota.
