'Tis official. So, we can anticipate seeing a USCHO mention of it in a couple weeks? :cool:

(Not that our favorite journalists aren't already working on it, and probably have it almost done if not already submitted. They do their work, I can't complain about them.)

Has a d3 player ever left early to sign a two way contract with a NHL/AHL team? This is a shock for a d3 player. How did the d1 teams miss this kid?

Why the frowny face? I would think this is a good thing for your school. I mean, anytime Aucoin gets mentioned, 349 different threads pop up on this board with people ready to felate him. So think of all the time you guys get to spend reading threads now!

As far as the Lakers go though, losing Musselwhite, Gunn-Taylor, and Selleck all in the same year is really going to hurt.

Numbers, dude. numbers.


Point Scoring: GP PPG G- A- P
1 Eric Selleck 28 1.93 21-33-54

You don't replace the #1 scorer in the country easily. Congrats to the kid, but I was looking forward to his junior and senior years. On to a bigger (frozen) pond. :)

Good luck to Eric but weren't we kinda expecting something like this to happen. If the player has the opportunity, why wouldn't he jump to the bigger ice. You can always complete college. It appears the Lakers are either going to need to work on their defensive game, since they will be losing some goals, or that line will continue to pump out goals providing they find the right linemate to replace Eric. If you think about it though, the S-L-F line kinda faded toward the end of the season when they were needed most.

Congrats Eric!

Even though this sucks, it can't hurt recruiting. It's rare for a D-III coach to be able to say that he's had players scouted and signed by an NHL team during the course of their college career. I'm sure Gosek will use that as a selling point, although Selleck was a player that had more skill than most players.

Congrats to Eric. I was upset, but I do realize collegehcky2's point. Gosek can use this to his advantage. Oswego will miss him, but we will be fine.

yes they did fade BIG TIME.........not sure but, how many goals did selleck have the last 10 games??? 3 or 4 maybe..........Hockey is a team game, they will circle the wagons and be ready for the 2010-2011 season.......

Not that I'm implying I'm anyone's favorite journalist :p but I'm actually not working on it.

One of the editors is responsible for keeping track of all players leaving early going pro. I alerted him to this news, since I'm sure they don't expect this in the D3 ranks.

This is a bitter sweet situation. It is a great opportunity for Selleck and I am glad for him. I really think he should have stayed in school. There are aspects of his game that needs work to be competing with the Pros. Hopefully his new coaches will be able to work with him.
As for Oswego it is a hugh loss but good teams over come them and succeed. Yes they have lost talent but it is time for all the Freshmen now Sophmores to step up to the plate. Loosing 2 big scorers will hurt, but you have to remember Lags and Fox are still really great players and 1 player doesn't make a team for he was no Gretzy.
As in all sports everything boils down to defense. Beckwith is a great start here but the question is about the defensemen.
Oswego' 89

I'll disagree with you there, he was absolutely dominating players most of the year. The aspects of his game that he needs to work on wouldn't have gotten much attention by staying in school. He needs to play better competition in order to improve. Of course, when Selleck did play quality teams (St. Norbert, Plattsburgh, Elmira, Adrian, etc) you saw some things he needed to improve, but unfortunately, he wouldn't really work on them for more than 5 or 6 games per year.

It'll be interesting to see how he handles the level of play because now he'll be able to really throw the body around whereas last year it seemed that most of his hits in open ice were called for some sort of penalty whether justified or not.

And finally, it's good to see he's staying in school for the rest of the semester. He could just leave campus and go home to train, but by finishing up this year, he could conceivably take classes during the offseasons to get his degree.

Considering the track record of the editors on this site... that was fast :eek:

I will agree with you that playing a tougher talent he will be able to play a more physical game that he got into trouble at the college level. If Selleck wasn't able to sharpen his skills on lesser talent is he going to be able to now??

Except he turned Oswego into a DI school in the process. Look at the heading.
