    Keeping Gazzola is huge. He’s a big presence on the blue line.

    I happened to look at Elite Prospects from Fredericton - wonder if Luc Deschense would play for UNB? He turns 21 in May and would be pro eligible for the Fall. Good offense numbers for a 'D' man, but 148 PMS might need to be addressed.

    Didn’t play hockey this season at all, has no desire to continue playing hockey or pursue a University degree. He’s not going to play for UNB, now maybe he could be convinced to come out of “retirement” but I highly doubt it.

    Herbers returning to Alberta defiantly puts the pressure on the rest of the league and UNB to up their game.

    Trey Lewis signs with Brest in France for 18/19. Another roster spot opens up.

    So they basically need to replace the entire 4th line. I expect them to bring in some guys who didn’t necessarily put up big numbers in junior but are very good PKers/defensive guys to fill those spots. If they can find guys who do all of that plus can provide offense, even better. I am of the thinking that having four scoring lines is better than three scoring lines + a checking line...your best defense is a good offense.

    Definitely what they needed....their lack of finish at times last season was frustrating.

    I can’t remember the last time (if ever) they have had a former 50 goal scorer...lots of guys have come in with seasons of 40+ (Boland/Trainor/Wiebe/Wudrick/Braes/Prosychen off the top of my head...and with very mixed results after looking at that list).

    Interesting note: Mark's older brother, Zack, was born in Saint John - he just finished with Alaska-Anchorage (NCAA).

    Another big recruit from out west. Perhaps taking advantage of Alberta’s lack of turnover this offseason??

    Hard to believe, but I think this is their first D recruit out of the WHL since Ben Wright in 2009.
