I would like to see them recruit exceptionally fast skaters. You can't teach speed but you can teach playmaking skills to an extent. At least with speed you can develop a penalty kill player and a forechecker with relative ease.


Good point NE. You can't teach speed.
There has to be a plausible explanation why NU's list is so small. Do the coaches actually report the recruiting activity, or does the site assemble the data from various reporting sources?

Heisenberg's list is a good resource but I usually go to Elite prospects and look ahead to their projected Niagara roster for 2020-21 and 21-22 to see all the prospects.

As for why they don't have as many guys committed in the future: I would guess it's because most of the team is young. They only lost five players to graduation this season with Sokay and Delmas being the biggest losses.

I would expect to see a lot more guys added to the 21-22 list eventually since that's the first season after they graduate guys from Lammers' first recruiting class (Cooley, Wilson, Kendall, Harpur) plus Jack Billings. Transfers like Evingson and Sommer will be redshirt seniors in the 21-22 season too.

Makes sense.

Coaches/colleges cannot comment on recruits until a National Letter of Intent is signed. Most of these recruiting sites rely on Twitter announcements from the players and announcements from the various junior teams/leagues for their information.

Heisenberg's site is a good one as is Elite Prospects. Another one I look at is College Hockey, Inc.'s page, which you can sort by different catagories. Again, all of these are only as good as the information being put out there. Take all three together and you will have a pretty good picture as to the recruits coming in and when they are coming in.

A goalie from U Denver has transferred to NU.
That brings us to 3 transfers including the two redshirts.
We have seven prolific freshman coming into the program.
Analytics project NU could well be a pre-season #1 in AHA.

All good news Jim. If I’m correct the addition of the UD goalie gives NU four goalies on the roster. Willy is a senior. We have a ton of experience returning next season. Need to stay healthy.

NU needs a healthy Stenlund on the ice for the upcoming season. He is such an offensive threat and is the key to NU's power play success. When he was injured, NU struggled mightily on the PP.

For Stenlund, the summer has gone pretty much as it usually does. Gyms stayed open in Sweden, allowing him to workout. After ending last season in December with a wrist injury, however, he’s ready to get back on the ice.

“It’s been so long now,” he said. “I’ve been shooting and stuff, and rollerblading, but I’m somebody who’s desperate to just get back on the ice. It’s definitely an itch to get back.”

Stenlund has also been working with Kelly Lockwood, an associate professor in the department of kinesiology at Brock University.
