    So a month ago we thought Halliday was an American who wanted to play in the OHL and now it appears he is a Canadian who wants to take the college route...:D

    I thought it was a bit surprising too when I saw he was drafted last night. I have heard he is really a "dual citizen" from the DC area - who didn't get the NTDP invite, because it was assumed he was totally all about playing in the OHL.

    Maybe Central Illinois knows something, to draft him #1 overall, but that program has always been a bit of mess. They were rumored to almost be going under the last few years when they were known as the Bloomington Thunder. They have new ownership this year (and a new name), but they still stink on the ice.

    Maybe NTDP can still add Robinson and Halliday because they only have 11 forwards.

    Would certainly add a ton of excitement that was lost with Stranges decommit. I just wonder how Central Illinois would get compensated losing their top pick, or if its even allowed.

    I am sure its allowed - its the NTDP and should override any USHL team I would think. The NTDP just used another USHL player for the playoffs since they were shorthanded. Although they play in the USHL the NTDP has a different rule set and rightfully so in my opinion.

    I mean it makes sense that Halliday is headed to the NCAA based on him being a near unanimous top 10 quality OHL prospect and yet falling to the third round and then getting picked first overall in the USHL draft. I’d assume his camp was sending strong indicators this whole time. Not sure Niagara is the same sort of draw as London, seems like they were just taking a flyer on a big talent?

    I think the only question remaining is if he’s able to represent the USNT but reports of him being involved in Canadian youth trials and again, him being selected #1 overall seems to point strongly to him not being involved.

    Halliday will be at this weekend's try-out camp for the USHL's Central Illinois Flying Aces.

    Aces to host tryout camp on home ice

    Just got my first viewing of Maddox Flemming(04) and wow. Nick Pierre was on the same team, but I thought Flemming was the stand out. 2004 birth year is tracking to be a doozy for north american born talent. Seen a lot of high end guys.

    Just a side note their “favorite/top pick” for 2020 is Tyler Kleven from Fargo, ND.

    Well, the mystery's solved. Halliday was invited to the U17 team Canada camp, so he's a dual.

    no Max Gildon on defense is surprising...

    didn't Wilde have something minor done, which is why he isn't on the list?

    Both younger Mittelstadts committed to Minnesota.

    The youngest (03) was ranked one of the top three WHL eligible Americans along with Lucius (also committed to the U) and Hreschuk.

    Luke Toporowski
    Grant Silianoff

    Anyone else that I should be aware of?
