Trevor Owens, the Huskies' unsung hero for four season and their most recent Beanpot hero, signs his first pro contract with Montreal's AHL affiliate. http://northeasternhockeyblog.com/general/trevor-owens-signs-ato-with-laval-rocket-northeastern-huskies-beanpot-hockey-east/

I've thought for a while now that while Gaudette has a higher ceiling, Sikura is the more NHL-ready prospect. You could put him on the wing on any line in the NHL and he would quickly be able to adapt and compliment his linemates in short order. Incredibly smart player who plays really well without the puck. Watching almost every Bruins game this season, I see a lot of similarities between Sikura and Danton Heinen's game this year. Cassidy has been able to move him up and down the line-up and on the PP, and other than one lull, he's been a great complimentary winger.

Gaudette needs the puck more to be effective. Case and point we're the last two games of the year. He didn't have it as much, and he wasn't himself. Those type of college centers normally take a little while before they produce consistently. Backes, Kesler, Turris and even Eichel had adjustment periods somewhere between a couple months to a couple years at the beginning of their careers. I think Gaudette will figure it out, because he is immensely talented and one of the most determined and hardest working players I've ever seen play at NU, but it will be a longer adjustment time than Sikura.

I agree with you on everything. One thing I noticed is that Vancouver isnít a good team. Watching them play they need a lot of work. Hopefully he is part of the turnaround. I was ready to watch Nolan last night but he got scratched. NHL center ice is doing a free preview on Fios so I have been watching them all.

I don't believe there's any intention of starting Nolan aside from an emergency situation until they get to a point where they're either eliminated or clinched into a specific spot.

I agree but itís good for him to get to know coaches and team along with skating with them.

Sedin twins just announced their retirement, so he should have a great opportunity next year to prove himself and move into a meaningful role. I see him as a top 6 forward once he figures out the NHL game.

Great team. Good looking future. Next time I am in Matthews I'll head to the lounge and spring for first round. :)

Heisenburg has Rizzoli crossed off, I am assuming that means he is no longer coming? Can't find anything.

Correct. Rizzolo has been out of the NU pipeline for some time now. Same with Melaragni, who some outlets still show as coming.

...and in addition to the Hobey Baker Award for Adam Gaudette, NU gets three first-team All Americans. Probably the best day ever for the NU hockey program without anybody putting blade to ice. Heartfelt congratulations to the players, the coaching staff, and all those behind the scenes that helped make this happen.

Program has come a long way. I always thought Thiessen got robbed on the Hobey Baker.

We did have a player get robbed but it was ZAR. Thiessen had demonstrably more formidable competition.

Also reports are Scott Borek, PC assistant, is the next man to run the Merrimack program. So good news that Keefe will be staying.
