    Yeah, must have been concerns with his size, as to why he wasn't super hyped. Didn't fit the Gildon/Wilde mold. I know a few ohl scouts were absolutely enamoured with his skill set in his minor midget year.

    He is - and did well enough that he was invited to join the NTDP program next year. Several big time NCAA programs recruiting him hard.

    Top American 2003 Prospects for 2019-2020 NTDP

    Just some names to keep in in mind for next years team. Fun to follow these guys and keep track how they do.

    And does anyone know when we can expect to see the finalized roster for this year, seems like its taking longer than last year.

    Would very surprised if Bevilacquas stock doesn’t massively grow as the year goes on

    So not only will the Hughes’ youngest brother be a candidate next year...there’s another highly regarded JACK HUGHES that plays forward?

    This is gonna get confusing!

    Big blow to the NTDP and Michigan if true.

    Very confusing - assuming he signed the NTDP contract isnt that a done deal?

    No. The NTDP only does 1 year contracts and you can pay a fee to get out of the contract, a fee which London and its benefactors will obviously cover.

    Sheesh. So I guess Antonio isn't planning on playing much international hockey in the next few years. Somehow it's always London...

    If he hasn't played for NTDP yet, how is the contract enforceable? What did he get for signing it?

    A contract can be written that doesn't require you to have played for the program for it to be enforceable. The NTDP can choose to release a player from a contract, which does happen.

    Yes, I realize this - but the post I was responding to referred to having to pay a buyout fee. Does NTDP have a contract where once you have signed it they say you have to pay to get out of it irrespective of the circumstances?

    What is the buyout?

    The notion that he signed a "contract" (as a minor) with NTDP and then decided a couple of weeks later to go to the OHL and there is an enforceable 'buyout' provision seems off to me (unless there is an agreement b/w the OHL and NTDP that covers the situation).

    Curious questions...

    Sahil Panwar seems like he's a legit prospect and was just drafted in the OHL draft by the Knights in the 2nd round. Eliteprospect has him from Canada, but he was born Cerritos, California and has never once played in Canada by my recollection. Mix up by EP or does he have Canadian citizenship?

    Interesting if true that Schingoethe would choose Waterloo over an NTDP offer. This years team selection is not without intrigue for sure.

    In its first trip to the USHL playoffs since the 2011-12 season, the NTDP won its first game of the USHL playoffs 3-0 over the Chicago Steel. John Beecher (1g,1a), Drew Helleson (1g,1a), and Cameron Rowe (34 saves) led the way.

    Pretty impressive what the U17 squad has continued to do despite missing 5 of its best players, including its superstar (Hughes) and #1 goalie (Knight).

    The squad is really, really deep, and guys like Rolston and Beecher have stepped up and delivered with the increased opportunity.

    I dont like what i see from projected first rounders(Wilde, Miller and M.Samuelsson). Poor decisions with the puck shift after shift. Actually Adam Samuelsson has been my favourite defender. I love his physicality. Ty Emberson is another guy who has been good.

    What?

    How can you like what you've seen from Adam Samuelsson but not Mattias Samuelsson?

    Adam was practically teeing up shots for Canada and watching them fly by him. He's been awful in this tournament, like usual. I guess today he wasn't as bad, but he is the worst defensemen on the team, and there's a reason why he routinely gets rotated out of the top 6. As bad as Wilde and Miller have been, he's worse than them. Also worse than Stastney and York.

    Mattias Samuelsson and Ty Emberson have been by far the two most solid and reliable defensemen in this tournament and this season. The penalties today on M. Samuelsson were typical of IIHF competitions, especially the second one where he got two minutes for a hard hit.

    Expectations. I dont say Adam has been our best D but i think he was pretty solid yesterday. I just think M.Samuelsson could play much better. I think M.Samuelsson, Wilde and Miller should be much better. A.Samuelssson, Emberson, Stastney and York has been what i expect them to be.

    Mattias Samuelsson and K'Andre Miller finally lead our D today. Maybe i expect too much from them but today i really liked how they played.

    People can say what they want but i really like Adam Samuelsson.

    I also think Cam York can dominate this tournament next year.

    We all know how huge talent Jack Hughes is, but he tries to be too ''cute'' sometimes.

    Joel Farabee is big game man. He always delivers in big games.

    I expected more from Oliver Wahlstrom but still he has six goals already in this tournament.

    Bode Wilde is lost. I can't understad why he is so bad right now.

    Spencer Knight was rock solid today.

    Johnny Gruden is great guy for any team. He can play everywhere.
