Haggerty: Me, it's kind of getting to the next level, being an AHL or NHL player right out of college.
Sounds like more and more people are being impressed with Appert's ability as a coach.
I am counting all games for the USNTDP because that's the way that they have done it in the past.

Heres some scouts thoughts on Haggerty I picked up from TSN:
Very fast player and a gifted goal scorer; Fast skater and good shot; Powerful skater with good shot, becoming a better passer every year and strong passion for the game; Nice hands, very good skater; His best asset is his skating, strong long stride and good speed; Has a combination of hands and vision in the offensive zone.

Dam*, Seth can recruit. Guess we can put to bed that Monty was the recruiter. How will the Seth haters (Fraternal Order of the Rubber Sheets) spin this one ... wait, I know, "but will he be able to keep him for the whole four years." Coach Appert, thanks for bringing us a great on ice product.
I wonder if Babo knows Haggerty since he's from Connecticut. There can't be all that many hockey players there.
will not hold Red Sox thing against him:p
USA Hockey profile on Haggerty from 1/10.
Interesting article about Haggerty from collegehockey247 back in January, he lists BC, Northeastern, UVM, UNH and UML as potential schools. Sorry about the length, had to do a copy/paste since its a subscription site.
U.S. Under-17 forward Ryan Haggerty knows he will be playing college hockey in two years, but he doesn't know for which school. He has narrowed his list down, though, using a specific component - geography …
"I'm from Connecticut and I want to play somewhere in the New England area so I'm looking at Boston College, Northeastern, Vermont, New Hampshire and UMass Lowell," the 5-10, 175-pounder said. "I know a lot of guys at my age have already made up their minds but I don't want to make a decision and then have second thoughts, so my family and I are still taking our time."
Haggerty has scored nine goals with six assists this season.
But not that much longer. Haggerty said he expects to make his decision in the next four months.
"If you take each school individually, they all have great traditions and character," he said. "Some of them have new rinks and some are playing in old rinks that have been home to some great games in the past. You really can't go wrong with any of those schools and for me, it's just finding the right fit for school and for my brand of hockey."
Haggerty's brand of hockey is geared towards his offense. In 34 games this season with the U.S. National Team Development Program Under-17 team, the Stamford, Conn., native has recorded nine goals and six assists, ranking sixth on the team with 15 points.
"I would describe myself as a finisher," he said. "If I get the puck around the net, I'm going to finish the play. I'm always around the net, always in position to take a whack at the rebound, but I'm also not afraid to go into the corners and create plays with some hard work. And if I have to, I'll drop the gloves. I'm really willing to do whatever it takes for my line to score a goal and for my team to win."
Making the move from Trinity High School to USA Hockey has been easier than Haggerty expected, though each day presents a new challenge.
"I always tell myself that I have to build off my last game or my last practice and that every day I need to become a little better than I was the day before," he said. "I live by the motto 'Finish strong.'"
Signing Day for the Class of 2011 is still more than 10 months away, but Haggerty is already prepping to finish strong.
"I don't think it's going to be much longer," he said. "I'm not in any rush, but I can feel myself getting closer to a decision."
I've found a few mentions of Haggerty receiving interest from UNH. Also, FWIW Rivals had BC, UNH, UVM and NE as schools targeting him.
As if I don't brag enough...I can bring it here and receive the very best of jabs from you all...Letters were given out today and the B.R.O. received an "A". TJ Sleuter is the Captain and Sapponari is the other "A"
