Pretty sure he's saying Vesey stayed to get leverage on Nashville/leave for free agency and Dylan stayed because he wanted to stay then signed with his drafting team after the season ended.

(I have no comment on the comment, just translating it)

Ok, got it; thanks!

ZAR had his season ended today after another dirty headshot from Tom Wilson. Concussion and broke his jaw. Second game in a row Wilson has taken out a Pens player with a hit to their head. Dirtiest player in the game, someone call Matt Cooke and tell him his type of play still can fly in the NHL. Brutal way for ZAR to end his season. I really feel for him.

Related to ZAR, Sara Civian posted this article she worked on back after he signed and had some time in Wilkes-Barre. I highly recommend reading it. Excellent work and quotes from the people that know Zach best. https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vSgrpBXnDaPkz92Z0IZ7WlXBh042C3rRn0-UPKFfSCr34vfcyqLBUymGQul0xuv_EeupUwVV298w1LU/pub

great read.. thanks for passing along.
Wishing him a full recovery. Relentless... appropriate word to describe ZAR. Best to him.

The NHL HAS to get this out of the game. These idiots who are saying it was "shoulder to shoulder" must be blind. The view from behind Wilson clearly shows him targeting the face and his shoulder slamming directly into ZAR's jaw. The fact that Wilson was laughing on the bench afterwards is even more disgusting.

And people wonder why the NHL is still not "mainstream" on the par of baseball, football and basketball..

All 6 eligible Huskies recruits taken in the USHL Draft. Chabrier the earliest, at 11th overall (round 1), and Cooley the latest at 82nd overall (6th round). Should feel good that all 6 make it to campus, with the only worrisome one being Cooley due to WHL rights. Will have a blog post on the USHL Draft some time in the near future, need to finish this last week of grad school first

Austin Plevy from UMASS is transferring to NU as a grad transfer. His point totals have declined every year but he does have 50 points in 3 years and was the UMASS's 4th leading scorer in 15-16 and 3rd leading scorer in 16-17. The few times I've watched him play I've been impressed with his speed and skating ability. Maybe he fits on the wing with Picking and Goldstein in what would make a very fast line.

That reminds me: You are right that the line would be a blur. Goldstein can really motor. He skated just a bit faster than the speed at which he could function optimally. I suspect he will continue to improve and become, along with John Picking, a meaningful offensive contributor. Both players are what I call "pickpockets" and I wouldn't be surprised to see them on the PK next season.

WCHA composite schedule comes out tomorrow. Expect NU to make an appearance on it. Not sure what our last game against the conference was... probably when UAH came to Matthews in the Manson/Witt days.

Copied from Diehard Dogs:

If you live in the Washington, DC, area, know someone who does, or if you'll be passing through, here's something that should be of interest. None other than Jim Madigan will be honored guest and guest speaker at the annual Reception on the Hill, sponsored by the NU Washington, DC, Alumni Chapter on Tuesday, May 22, starting at 6 p.m. Location is Room 902 of the Hart Senate Office Building. There is no charge but because of Hart Building security requirements, registration deadline is May 17, which is only a couple of days away. Here's the registration link:

He's apparently bringing the Beanpot with him.
