The other theory might be that it's not a pro-team issue at all, but a European transcript concern??
Unfortunately UNH is so down right now that no one in the media seems to have noticed...

In other recruiting news - JD Greenway would have been a nice D for the next couple of years, but the former Wisconsin D-man heads to Maine today...

From June 2018:
Head scout and Assistant Coach of the Vipers, Kevin Pedersen had this to say about the commitment (to Vernon):
“The decision to commit to Nick a year out was based on his development as a player. Nick is a gifted skater with dynamic edges and ability to control the puck. He has great vision and excels in the offensive side of the game.”
When I look at the group of D UNH will have the next couple of years - JD would have fit in very nicely. If were talking 02's and beyond - Ill take all the 5-8 puck movers you can find in the Ian Mitchell or Troy Stecher mold if that's what they prefer. When you're last-minute shopping, you can't be as picky. If Gildon leaves this year, who replaces him in the top-4?
MacKinnon - Verrier
Bahn - McElhaney
That's a group that could use another D - and a steady, older D with two years of NCAA experience who is moving pucks at a high-level in the USHL (3-8--11 in 17 GP) and has done the same at the International level would have been a great fit. He also wouldn't have clogged up future scholarship money to target elite puck moving prospects sooner rather than later. Not sure they can find much better right now, unless there's another early summer decommit...

Tim Stuzle looks like he will be a good one, I wonder if that recruiting battle is over or he's still mulling over the major junior route or another school?
"UNH Commit Nick Ardanaz: A Quick, Agile Defenseman"
Includes video highlights, interview, scouting reports and stats.
So, nothing but crickets on Engarås. Didn't even come up as a topic around being shorhanded (injury madness) of late. Maybe he's actually in town and cleared, just not good enough to be on the ice.
That said, if he's still serving his NCAA penance, and UNH is footing a scholarship, well, that's a huge waste for a team that needs all it can get. In the real world, it's a due diligence fail regardless of the reason (admissions, pro$$, whatever...) and somebody gets a spanking.
Seems we'll need to do some discrete wire tapping to get any intel...
