I know by the end of the season here Master was walking normal, and skating. Haven't heard how he is doing since. Cedar Rapids Try Out Camp is the last weekend in May, so I will know more then.

Gage Hough '93 from Omaha Lancers has committed to Lowell for next season.

Good 3rd to 4th liner in college would be my guess

nothing like a kid who is going to be 22 as a FR

he should be happy for us... we're providing warm bodies to teach his players.

Now, if certain schools would like to donate recruits then I'm willing to listen.

it's absurd, where do you draw the line, 26 year old FR? 28?

This is an absurd statement due to the fact that he was Junior Hockey eligible up until next year.

USA hockey sets age guidelines for its hockey leagues. Last year '93s were the last eligible year and this coming year it will be '94s.

USHL teams are allowed only 4 overager spots. It gives late bloomers a chance.

For example: Jayson Megna didnt get a scholorship with UNO until he was an overager in the USHL. He went to UNO and was on the All Freshman team in the WCHA. He is now playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On a different note, Jake Kamrass had an assist as Topeka won their NAHL playoff series 3-2 with a 6-2 win over Amarillo in the best of 5 series. Interesting note, the road team won all five games.

Guillaume LeClerc's Bruins also won their series in 5. LeClerc still hasn't returned to the team due to family issues.

Those two teams will be playing each other in the Robertson Cup semis.

Son of former River Hawk should hear name called early in USHL Draft. Should be a target of UML staff.

Considering his brother went to Merrimack ... I'm not sure how good our chances are.

His brother isn't as regarded of a prospect, but we'll see.

His brother isn't as regarded of a prospect, but we'll see.You may very well be right. I know at one point a couple of years ago, Tyler had mentioned that he was interested in Lowell. I'm not sure if Lowell ever reciprocated. If this younger brother is more highly thought of, then we'll see if Lowell gets involved. Sadly, he could be too highly thought of which might take Lowell out of the picture anyway.

I believe I read on twitter that Mike McMahon confirmed that Logan Drevitch has taken visits to both Merrimack and Quinnipiac.

From CHN: Recruiting Mutiny at Coach's Convention. (http://www.collegehockeynews.com/news/2014/05/02_recruiting_mutiny_at_coachs.php)


The so-called "Gentleman's Agreement" — an agreement between coaches to not recruit each other's players once those players have verbally committed — will no longer be adhered to, according to a discussion at this year's American Hockey Coaches Association Convention, taking place this week in Naples, Fla.

I can't help but think this will hurt programs like Lowell. Kids like Lohin or Dmowski that Lowell found early, now the "big programs" can go after them. Who cares about the small college hockey programs after all?

I'm not usually the type to feel bad for anyone. I usually feel that everyone (businesses, ppl, schools, etc) should do whatever is in best interest. But in college hockey the big schools might end up killing off small schools namely WCHA teams. It would be extremely bad for sport.
