Re: UMass now committed to 'local talent'

I think they have the right idea to look locally. Similar to the Bruins that have a scouting staff all over the globe yet they pick many (too many actually) local kids. Let's make UMass the place for local kids to play.

How soon does he de-commit to go to BC or BU so he can play in a Beanpot...

Just a matter of time.

Highly unlikely the kid is ever even eligible to play.... Not exactly a rocket scientist.

With the NCAA eligibility standard rising next year to a 2.3 GPA it's a real question. Hopefully Thayer inflates its grades as much as the coach inflates his player's stats...

Re: UMass now committed to 'local talent'

I watched the kid play and he projects out to be a good player. Good size already, nice shot but he still has a way to go with the technical / coachable aspects of playing the position. By far not the most advanced defensemen in local high school hockey in the past few years but with a little coaching his game should pick up. Other local, less than ready, (and undersized) defensemen have advanced on to the USHL and are making central scouting lists.

Of course the kid you're referencing has NHL bloodlines so take that central scouting listing with a grain of salt...

The UMass kid or a different kid?

The kid who went to USHL and was on Central Scouting list this year, but not drafted.

LM?

At least he was smart enough to be admitted to Dexter...

Re: UMass now committed to 'local talent'

Considering it might have been a step down from the public school he was going to it was never in doubt.

That's not saying much.
