Hockey recruiting contacts at Michigan

Hockey recruiting contacts at Michigan

Quick question for the board - my nephew is a highly regarded hockey prospect out West in the Class of 2021. He is currently projected to go in the top 3 - 4 rounds of the WHL draft in his year but his parents would prefer he go the college route.


Other schools are just starting to reach out and he has a visit scheduled to University of North Dakota in a few months. He has family in Detroit and is a Michigan fan so he would be interested in checking things out the next time they are in town.


Does anyone know who would be the best person to contact? His coaches have contacts with a lot of schools but nothing direct with Michigan so his dad was just looking for someone to get in touch with.

Very excited about Trouba and Nieves. A bit disappointing to see Rutledge as the last goalie ranked, but we'll be happy to have him. Expected to step in right away and play over Janecyk.

ESPN Mock NHL Draft: Merril 11th to Anaheim

ESPN Mock NHL Draft: Merril 11th to Anaheim

The ESPN Insider NHL blog is projecting Jon Merrill to the Ducks with the 11th overall pick in this years upcoming NHL draft. That's down from their projection of the 9th overall pick in the previous month's mock.

No. 11 - Anaheim Ducks

D Jonathan Merrill, USNTDP

The Ducks have the luxury of two picks and might be a potential trading partner for the Islanders. Some scouts like Merrill as much as or more than Forbert. The order in which those two prospects are selected will be determined at the under-18s in Minsk.

On a depressing note, they have Jack Campbell going 24th in the first round to the Atlanta Thrashers. In last month's mock, he went 7th overall, so there's that.

Super D prospect Jon Merrill is going to be on NHL Live talking about his draft prospects and Michigan. You can catch it on, XM 204, Sirius 208, and NHL Network.

Merrill figures to be a first round pick, with one scout saying he could go in picks 14-26.

Also, the NHL's official twitter today said that a goalie scout compared Jack Campbell to Marc-Andre Fleury. Goddamnit.
