Two blue-chip Canadian kids to keep an eye on: Tanner MacMaster (Camrose, AJHL), & Ryan Gropp (Penticton, BCHL). Both were first round picks in the WHL draft but appear to possibly be headed NCAA.

Canadians kids, awesome. What would the projected recruiting class year be for the lads?

MacMaster 2014, Gropp is a September birthday I think so he might be a 2015. Have to double check.

If that's the case he's NCHC material... :-)

Heisenberg has them both for 2014 but that could change.

Brent Gropp is indeed Ryan's father.

They are both 2014's.

I believe Gropp has visited DU, fwiw.

Burnsville and Wayzata are playing on Fox Sports North for those of you who get it. Two guys to keep an eye on are Burnsville forwards Tyler Sheehy and Brock Boeser. Sheehy has visited Wisconsin twice and Boeser is the cousin of former Badger Dan Boeser who is now an assistant coach with their varsity team. Eaves went and saw these guys play over the holidays and they are both squarely on the Badger radar right now.

Sounds like they are virtually locks to me....:) Any idea what classes they will come in as?

From what I've heard, if they get offers (they haven't been offered by UW yet, obviously) they would commit. As with any HS player, they're usually offered one year after they would graduate so they can spend a full year in the USHL. That would make Sheehy a 2015 kid with a year in the USHL, and Boeser a 2016.

How good are these kids? Obviously Eaves isn't going to recruit guy to wear street clothes, but what kind of impact might they make if they came to UW? Obviously much can change in the coming years, both ways.

I don't feel comfertable making an assessment when I've never seen these two play in person. I've heard good things from people I trust, but like I said, until I see them I don't feel safe giving an opinion.

Side note, I went and watched Besse play tonight against St. Thomas Academy. Probably the least effective that I've ever seen him be in a game.

That looks like a couple of bluechippah's. Heisenberg has them listed as the top kid in BCHL and top in AJHL (his lists....especially at the top tend to be in order of ability). I like one is on the smaller side and less apt to be a short stay before going off to the pros. Other has pro size....6'2 as a 16 year old

Posting this in both UW threads because I'm not sure if anyone besides me reads the recruiting one (joking...kinda). If you're interested, future Badger Grant Besse will be playing live on FS North at 1:30 vs Grand Rapids on Hockey Day Minnesota.

Spencer Naas had a pretty goal going to his backhand. Pontential right?

Yep, he's right on the UW radar.

I hope Kerdiles sticks around long enough to play with this kid

Possible, depends on when UW brings Dvorak in. Currently he's committed for 14 or 15 depending on what UW wants to do. I think he should be full time in the USHL this year, he will be next year for sure. I think he'll force Eaves hand into bringing him in for 2014 which would be Kerdiles junior year. Even then, I still think Kerdiles is gone in two years.

Sorry I'm late in posting this, but Grant Besse is playing on TV again tonight on FSN+. Game is in the first period right now.

Notre Dame Academy forward Brett Gruber unofficially visited Wisconsin Saturday and his teammate Tony Stillwell will do the same Friday.

Jedd Soleway was named First Star of the Game (http://www.bchl.ca/leagues/hockey_boxscores.cfm?clientID=1413&leagueID=2393&gameID=1103086&link=bchl) last night with a goal and assist against Vernon (the team he used to play for) in a 3-1 win. He has 6 goals and 9 assists in 12 games since being traded. It's interesting to see his points per game went from .70 ppg to 1.3 ppg by being traded to a better team. I really hope Jedd is singing UW's praises to teammate Ryan Gropp!
