Jake Theut is going to take a graduate transfer year at Alabama-Hunstville! A wonderful opportunity for Jake to pursue some graduate education and hopefully (rpobably?) get some time in net at the collegiate level. Guess I'm gonna be watching some WCHA games next season. Super happy for Jake!

we had better.
ncaa ff banner would have been nice, but long as we are getting to the tourney every so often (small banner for ncaa2018 as well).. hopefully we'll get hot at the right time & make some noise.
good season, some good players & great memories.

Our post on Nolan signing with the Blues. Like Gaudette and Sikura, Stevens was a player who transformed the NU hockey culture. For many fans, like Ryan, one play was all it took to turn them into believers.

he had one patient (and deceptive) toe drag. fun to watch many a times in action (besides being very strong on the puck, generally). great awareness on ice of where his teammates were, as well. wishing him the best.

NLI news

Jordan Harris and Julian Kislin both signed their NLIs for next season. So they will be coming in and be expected to contribute immediately, especially Harris who should be among the top 93 selected in the NHL Draft.

Power forward Aidan McDonough signed his NLI for 2019, he will play a year of Junior hockey, likely in the USHL, before enrolling. He has big offensive upside and the year of seasoning should do him well

We need to clarify this particular matter. I checked with an impeccable (not an impeachable) source who was able to set the record straight:

Aidan McDonough has not signed an NLI for 2019…it is illegal to sign an NLI for a future year! Student-athletes can defer their NLI from one year to another, but institutions are not able to sign a player for a year from now. Northeastern did not sign Aidan to an NLI!! Perhaps Thayer got their signals wrong.

The good news is that Jordan Harris and Julian Kislin both signed their NLIs for next season. So they will be coming in and be expected to contribute immediately. Harris currently is expect to be picked within the first three rounds.

I'm sorry that you were unable to join us last night. It was a well attended, upbeat and tastefully done affair. The only things missing were Bill Dougherty's poetry and several gentlemen , Jack Grinold, George Makris and Frank Mahoney who were smiling and enjoying the activities from the best table (not) in the arena.

Saw your post on DHD, meant to reply there. Whether or not it's the official NLI, it's an agreement between the student-athlete and the school on his arrival date and the plan for the upcoming season. So, NLI might not be the proper term, but it certainly is a letter of intent. In any case, Aidan will come in 2019, Kislin and Harris in 2018.

I appreciate the words about the banquet. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. From the sounds of things from people who were there, it went off without a hitch. The team deserved a celebratory night, and it sounds like they got it.

Final NHL CSS Rankings among North American skaters for NU:

- Tyler Madden (F), 39
- Jordan Harris (D), 44
- Riley Hughes (F), 113
- Neil Shea (F), 193
- Zach Solow (F), 204
- Aidan McDonough (F), 209

So, Madden/Harris will be drafted, the other 3 are more hopeful for some late round flyers

- Neil Shea (F), 193
- Zach Solow (F), 204
- Aidan McDonough (F), 209

So, Madden/Harris will be drafted, the other 3 are more hopeful for some late round flyers

Note that just because Madden is rated 39 does not mean that he is expected to go in the early to mid 2nd round. This is a list of North American skaters. It doesn't account for the many Europeans who will be drafted ahead of him. I'm kind of surprised that his ranking has held up at this level, considering his drop in production after his tournament success in January. Perhaps his trade to Tri-City hasn't worked out as well as hoped or perhaps he hasn't played since 3/30 due to an injury.

Harris is expected to be taken in the 75-90 range or mid to late 3rd round. The other three are probably good prospects for college, given the coaches' scouting history, and could very well develop into contributors in a year or two. I wouldn't be shocked if Harris' name was called ahead of Madden's. I don't care where or if they are taken, as long as they can help NU get back to the Garden and into the final 16.

In reality, the players who are "judged" by the top PROfessional scouts to be the top PROfessional prospects. There are myriad top flight college prospects who get through the fine mesh nets and are drafted late (see J. Davies, D. Sikura) or are missed entirely as 18 year olds (See N. Stevens). Then there are legions of late bloomers who are missed entirely and have teams bidding against each other by the end of their junior or senior years.

Sometimes it appears as though some of the boys who go in the early rounds, have had their ratings boosted because of the college program they have committed to.
That's like buying a stock because you heard someone smart likes it. Sometimes that works. Often it fails, because the sheepish investor hasn't bothered to do the work to get the whole story until after he owns it. Then he may embarrassed to admit his mistake and to cut his loss.

The Huskies are going back to Ireland Nov 29-30, 2019. Will be joined by UNH, Princeton, and Colgate. Excellent for the program. I know the players, coaches, and fans who attended all enjoyed themselves.
