can you tell us who nick gordan is and a little about him

I found some information on the web. Nick's from Pittsburgh PA and played for Northfield Mount Hermon before heading to Sioux City of the USHL. He was a teammate of Jake Suter at Sioux City. Nick committed to RIT (http://www.musketeershockey.com/leagues/newsletter.cfm?page=49207&clientID=2792&leagueID=0) for the 2011-2012 season. It doesn't appear he ever played a game for RIT. I believe he was plagued by injuries prior to coming to Lowell.

It will be interested to see how Nick does this season. It has to be at least a couple of years since he's played in a game.

According to Mike McMahon:

French forward '96 Guillaume Leclerc has committed to UML. He believes for the 15-16 season. C'mon new Yorrick.

This article (http://www.lesgothiques.com/component/content/article/35-actualites/1218-guillaume-leclerc-part-un-an-plus-tot-que-prevu-aux-usa) is in French, but uses the logo of the Lowell Devils. It also says that he'll be here for 2014-15.

Looks like the kid is putting up some good numbers (http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=163406), but who knows what the competition is like over there:

That he's playing with the U20 as a 16 year old I think speaks a lot. I don't know what Trielle/Meunier/Amar did before us in that regard but I'd have to think that's probably pretty good.

edit: most goals in a "U22" league... again, good sign... this would indicate he's good enough for the senior national team soon.

edit #2: looks like there is a brother but he's an unlikely... already 18, playing D. Has appeared on the U20 roster

edit #3: second most points in the same league... the other guy had a large amount of assists

edit #4: according to the article, he'll be coming stateside next year and attend school in Minnesota

According to Mike:


Not sure if he'll play hockey there or somewhere else, but French Lowell commit Guillaume Leclerc will be headed to Austin Prep, it appears.

Which probably makes sense. Keep the kid close, at least for a year if he is a 15-16 to get acclimated and get used to being around the coaches/team.

There is a limit on how much in-person contact recruit and staff can have especially before completing junior year, I believe, but if he does go to AP, they have a strong hockey program led by former Merrimack assistant Lou Finochiarro.

60 points in 17 games? Nevermind the next Yorrick, is he the next Stephen De Costa?

He'll be a 17-18 next year. I am aware of Austin Prep in Mass... went by the translator... whatever.

Wonder if he got any advice from College Hockey Inc. I'd have to imagine that whomever may be advising him would try to get him in the EJHL.

As for Yorick vs. Stephane... I'll take either one but prefer the latter.

edit: and yes, he basically tore it up... top everything for the U18 league, top goals for the U22, came in 2nd on points (19-16--35, IIRC... the leader was like 16-30--46). He's already on the U20 National team.

edit #2: if part of our plan is to take risks on internationals, I'll take it. So long as we get their credentials in order and get good at doing just that... no reason not to keep those channels open.

here's Da Costa's history.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=14394

Now, I don't know what explains the lack of playing with Aimens for Da Costa... was he playing somewhere else simultaneously that wouldn't report here?... and then that silly line at the U18s.... not an easy eyeball comparison to make. I would be cautiously optimistic with this one. Clearly this kid makes Da Costa's numbers look small... up until you get to the international comparison. Of course, Stephane doesn't have a U20 stat line for the same age this kid does.

edit: I really wish we knew more about DaCosta... turns out LeClerc also destroyed the competition as a 15/16 year old in France's U18 league. Stephane doesn't appear to be anywhere near 3PPG in that level of competition.

One thing to remember, DaCosta started at Merrimack at 20 years old. If what we're seeing is true, LeClerc will be 18 starting up.

Scammon is coming in 2014-15, as well as Casey Shea. Dylan Shapiro is no longer committed to UMass Lowell.

And considering Shapiro's numbers in the EJHL, not overly surprised unfortunately.

Yes, but he's not the coaching staff and he hasn't signed an NLI...Keep an eye out for it is I'll I'm saying.

Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me anyway.
