    Ryder Donovan and Michael Vorlicky have been nearly inseparable this week at Golden Knights development camp. But that wasn’t always the case.

    The University of Wisconsin recruits were bitter rivals in high school in Minnesota and almost came to blows after a high-profile incident last fall before working out their differences and becoming close friends. “For a while there, we were kind of at each other’s throats,” Vorlicky said Wednesday at City National Arena.

    Donovan, a fourth-round pick by the Knights in this year’s draft, was a forward for northern powerhouse Duluth East High School, while Vorlicky, who went undrafted, excelled on defense at storied Edina High near the Twin Cities.

    During a September matchup in the Upper Midwest Elite League before their prep seasons, Donovan and Vorlicky were battling in front of the net when chaos ensued. “I just ran him,” Donovan said with a laugh. “He tried breaking my wrist, just chopped me. We go in the box, and I try to joke with him and he’s furious, he’s chirping me.”

    And what about Vorlicky’s version of the story?

    “I was standing in front of the net and he kind of cheap-shotted me,” he said. “The play was still going on, but I got up and just went to look for him, and I gave him a pretty good whack across the wrists. I ended up getting kicked out of that game, actually, so it just kind of went downhill from there.”

    Not long after the incident, Vorlicky reached out to Donovan to squash their feud. Vorlicky committed to Wisconsin in January, and Donovan chose the Badgers in February after de-committing from North Dakota.

    They roomed together on campus this summer in Madison and were together in the locker room at Wisconsin when Donovan was selected by the Knights on Saturday with the No. 110 overall pick.

    “It was good to go through that because now it makes us kind of closer,” Vorlicky said. “I talked to him when he was going through his committing process, and we talked about the situation and kind of laughed it off, which was awesome.”
    careful, board mods have taken issue with people copy/pasting too much of a story, especially if there is a paywall in place.

    Good recruiting video. All these NHL guys know Tony so he should show this to every recruit. I'm jacked. Probably gonna have to buy tickets to see the first home game now.

    He's coming. I can't imagine that one week of playing with other prospects is going to change the outlook on things.

    Exactly what iím Worried about. These kids need their heads examined if they think itís a good idea to jump in at 18.

    They should talk with Heatley, Rafalski, McDonagh, Stephan, Turris (he should have played 3 years in Madison), Kunin (should have played 3 years) and on and on.

    Absolutely, that's why I'm always worried when I open this thread. With the great talent that has bailed in the past, when I "click" I wonder who's bailing or quitting NOW.
    I would be VERY disappointed in him (and his family) if he were to go the pro route at this stage.

    I couldn't ****ing believe it when Brian reported that this morning.

    Caufield interview regarding where he will play next year. Realistically, what else would you say to the media covering your future employer???


    https://www.nhl.com/canadiens/video/scrum-cole-caufield/t-277437414/c-68586503

    He says ultimately it is his decision and he is already taking summer school courses.

    The Montreal beat writer's article today is titled, "Wisconsin appears to be next stop for Canadiens prospect Caufield".

    I read somewhere he was taking summer school classes. It's a lock once he immerses himself into the program and bonds with the lads.

    Do you guys consider incoming transfers to be part of a recruiting class?

    Regardless, I'm excited!

    Yeah, I believe I read that North Dakota cut ties to him as they were worried he was going to play Major Junior. Happened a few months ago I think.
