Casey is ranked very high (#5) in the 2017 NHL Central Scouting Midterm (http://www.nhl.com/ice/draftprospectbrowse.htm?cat=1&sort=midtermRank&year=2017&pg=1) report. Surprised they have him 6' 1" @ 201, which is a lot heavier than what I've seen on other listings.
On the Green Bay Gamblers' web site he's listed at 5'11", 190 lbs. But he HAS to be at least 6'0", and probably 6'1" per the Central Scouting report. However Central Scouting having him at 201 lbs. can't be right either, unless they weighed him in full gear. :rolleyes:

KARE11 Sports had a nice feature on him tonight, including some clips in his first few Gambler games.

I'd be surprised if Sheehy left.

His comment after Sat. loss:

He said what he needed to say. I don't think he'll leave, BUT...*****e that contract...I wouldn't blame him.

SERIOUSLY?! "WAV E" is asterisked out? I know why, but JayFC.

Jake scored first goal in the first game he played for Bridgeport. Also got an assist in 3-1 victory.

What a start, good for him.

So, who else besides Mittelstadt from the Gophers will be robbed for the Olympics?

Sheehy, Pitlick, Lindgren ??

If I had to guess, just Mittelstadt and Lindgren. Then again, why don't they just take the uber-talented BU team?

AHL players can't go?

So I take it NHL announced no NHL-ers in Olympics?

Also, everyone too lazy, or still too soon to admit it is time for offseason thread?

All the BU players are jumping to the NHL, so that won't work.

The 2016-17 season is over, and it is the off-season...

Disappointing for sure. I thought he played very well the second half of the season.

Any scouting reports on the incoming frosh? I recall thinking Nanne moved the puck very well during the state tourney, consistently making good decisions with the puck, but I'm not sure how effective he will be in his own end. What about Knoepke and Simonson?

Congrats to Sheehy being named first team all-American. (Why is there a West list and an East list, if it is ALL-American?)

Only speculating, but could it be those who vote aren't that familiar with the players from outside their region? Or possibly because having two "first teams" simply allows more players to be named?

Question: who was the last Gopher to be named to the first team?
