I just received my The Hockey News Draft Preview issue in the mail, and this year there is only one Wolverine commit on their Top 100 list. JT Compher comes in at #41, which would equate to an early 2nd round pick. The magazine also lists the ISS rankings, which had him at #21. Not quite sure why there's such a big discrepancy between the two numbers, and the magazine doesn't provide any insight either. The magazine does note that Compher played well against the many college teams the USNTDP had on their schedule this season, which should bode well for his transition to the college game. THN lists his NHL translation as a two-way forward. Not much surprise there, as that's essentially the role he's played for the USNTDP and the role I expect him to assume for M next season.
Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
