    Phase II on Tuesday, starting in the morning, is for anyone who is not a returning player (e.g., Sarlo) or already a protected player (e.g., Itagaki). I expect several recruits to be taken. It will be reported at https://ushl2.rinknetcloud.com/.

    I will report on RPI recruits taken, although I may not do it live.
    The Phase I draft starts at 6 PM CDT. I will post if Babich is selected in the early morning.

    According to posts on this thread https://finishyourcheck.com/topic/129...rk-cup-finals/ on Finish Your Check. Calvaruso has been ready to play for about a week, but Sioux Falls is sticking with Stauber, the hot goalie. They are not dressing Calvaruso so that Stauber isn't looking over his shoulder. It seems to be working.

    Babich goes in the 7th Rd. #95 to Omaha.
    Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

    I missed this. Babiich recently was at the USHL '03 combine.

    I don't expect Babich to make Omaha's final 2019-20 roster. However, hopefully he will be on their protected list and perhaps play a couple of games for them as Itagaki did with Lincoln this season. It Babich is good enough to play in the USHL all season as a 16-year old, we will probably lose him.

    Phase-II starts at 10 AM CDT (11 AM EDT). I expected to miss most of the first hour while being out for lunch, but I will post any RPI recruits taken.
    Edit: Back from lunch.

    Re: RPI Recruit Thread 2018-19 (Part III)

    We have 21 recruits currently. Nine were in the USHL and either will be in Troy or are still on rosters. Itagaki and now Babich are also property of teams. Babichuk, Helsen, and Mahshie are expected in Troy. That leaves 7 who could be drafted -- Miller, Davies, Leibold, Beaton, Fawkes, McDonald, and Brackett. Any of them could be drafted, and hopefully most will be. Personally I would be shocked if Miller were drafted because he did not perform that well when there before. I guess that someone could take a flyer on Mahshie since he does still have a year of eligibility and could leave RPI, but it seems unlikely.

    Beaton is one of the recruits I most want to see move up to the USHL. CCHL is okay but nothing special, and he could use some better competition. Same thing with Fawkes and the MJHL. Obviously, it would be positive for any recruit to move up to the USHL though.

    You also mentioned being concerned about losing players if they play well (like Babich making the roster for Omaha), but if the team wins like it's expected to next season, we should be able to keep them

    I agree that if the team wins, they won't leave, but I am a pessimist.

    Edit: I agree about Fawkes and add McDonald. He was way above the competition at his HS, and little is known about his play for the Rochester Coalition.

    Edit2: I'll be back later to add any additional draftees.

    Brett Miller was drafted in the 14th round #206 by Fargo.

    That shows how poorly I can predict. (see post #130.)

    That's it. I thought that Fawkes and McDonald would be chosen by someone.

    That's disappointing; I thought they'd be chosen too. I hope they can still find a higher level to play at. I also thought Davies would be chosen

    When camps open up there are always a ton of kids invited by teams so there’s still that possibility. Also, not all the kids who were drafted today will report to their respective teams.

    Just 1 more thing, I fully expect Fawkes & McDonald to be selected in the NAHL Draft June 4th. IMO, the NAHL has surpassed the BCHL in overall progression of it’s players.
