    Anybody know where James O'Brien is playing this year? He played for USNTDP last year as an underager on the under-18 team. Rated as a top prospect for 2007 draft. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know if O'Brien will do to well playing against men. He still is a pretty raw player, but in the end, I think he could be a top power forward in the NHL. Good luck to him in the NCAA, it'll be really interesting to see how he and the Gophers do this year.

    that has got to be the best incoming freshmen class ever, absolutely loaded, im just curious how many will stay 4 years, or even 3 years. hopefully o'brien doesnt get hurt by accelerating his studies in his draft year like pinneault and bertram amongst others.

    Scary thing is two years ago Peter Mueller was in that class too.

    O'Brien graduated a year early so he could lkay NCAA a year early. I think he will do just fine playing against older players. The u18 team does play heavy college. Plus O'Brien is a natural gritty player with smarts.
