    First rounder? I doubt it. Drafted? Maybe. Don't know him, just going by statistics. Looks like he matched his brothers' stats and they never got drafted, although he is bigger.

    Riley Tufte had similar stats last year and is going in the first round. Considering it's suppose to be a weak draft next year, if he has a great season, I could see him going in the first round.

    His HS/USHL numbers are a lot better than his brothers for their age.

    At Ryan's age (D-1 season) neither of his brothers were in the USHL. They both only played there for a few games in their Draft season. Ryan is already playing in there in his D-1 season.

    There is no guarantee that Ryan will play full time in Lincoln next year. He may return to Lakeville North HS, though my guess is he plays in Lincoln.

    Barring a breakout year in the USHL, he won't get drafted in the first round.

    I'm hoping he'll be an excellent college player. Odds are good that he'll at least be better than average.

    He is, IMHO, a bit overlooked because he committed to SCSU rather than North Dakota or Minnesota. However, even I'm not homer enough to predict he'll be a first rounder.

    FYI, St. Cloud's highest draft pick ever was Matt Cullen at 39th. We typically don't have those kinds of players in our pipeline. Ryan may be that player, but I doubt it.

    He is closer to a first rounder than undrafted.

    I'd say possibly as high as fourth rounder but has time to improve on that.

    Poehling is good, and will likely get drafted, but he's not remotely close to Tufte as a prospect.

    This is the first time SCSU has had a player prior to their initial draft eligibility. Typically you find those players at BC, BU, Wisconsin, and the like. I'd imagine that if he does well in the NCAA, it will have a profound impact on his draft stock. I guess we'll find out.

    SCSU is a sleeper school, though.

    I've seen him play in the USHL. He's pretty good, but still only a 99 birthdate, so it's seems a little pre-mature to basically go from high school hockey straight to NCAA. That's a huge leap. Especially when lots of kids are gaming the system and going in as 21yr old freshman.

    Ryan Poehling scored a natural hat trick in the 2nd period of a 4-2 USA win over the Czech team. After three games, he leads Team USA in goals (4) and is third in points.

    Chmelevski (7 points), Pastujov (7 points), Poehling (4-0-4), and Lodnia (3 points) are the only players with more than a point so far.

    In the 8-1 exhibition before the tournament, Poehling had 4-0-4 and Pastujov had 2-2-4. Lodnia had 1-2-3. Chmelevski had two assists.

    Seems like these four have been tearing it up.

    He's a good player, I think he can adjust to the NCAA. World Junior candidate next year for sure.

    Should be really fun for you as a SCSU fan to see 3 brothers all begin with the program at the same time, especially because they're likely to be some of the better players on the team. Reminds me of the Spinks at Colgate University.

    As an RPI fan I've seen a lot of the Spink's the last few years in the ECAC. They're alright but not as good as Ryan will be.

    Button seems insanely high on this kid, can any people more familiar with Minnesota HS hockey give me a breakdown on this kid? Seems to be an interesting case to follow throughout the year. I tend to follow prospects pretty closely, and I know next to nothing about him, so it was a bit of a shock to see him at 4. Thanks in advance.

    Does St. Cloud have a good hockey program?

    Yes. Bob Motzko is turning them into a yearly powerhouse.

    They are on the upswing. Seem to be a team of overachievers, but are starting to bring in better recruits now. They are historically viewed as the 2nd tier program in Minnesota (aka the nickname Jan Brady State), but they have had strong seasons recently. They seem at the very least to be a consistent tournament team.

    Button REALLY likes international tournaments and he called Poehling the best player at the Hlinka. He performed very well, but I doubt he's this widely regarded at this point. Either way, I hope Poehling validates the hype.

    It's the standard route for MN high schoolers.

    Yeah, it's good. Not a powerhouse but they have spent their fair share of time at the top of their conference.
