    Karki is no longer committed to UND. Tychoniuk is, so it's still 3. Pettersen is committed to DU.

    Both are huge, have very good speed and can really think the game. I can easily see both as first rounders in 2019.

    Trevor Kuntar should be added to 2001 tendered by youngstown.

    Luke Tuch should be added to 2002. (brother of Alex Tuch)

    Definitely add defensemen Michael Bevilacqua to the '03's. Absolutely elite in every aspect and the most dominant player on the Jr.Sabres and in every game i've seen him.

    Swayman's first game back and he beat USA teammates Oettinger, Harper, and Tkachuk. Maine beat BU and he had stopped all 31 shots. Should have played the better goalie with the better stats for Team USA.

    I'm going to the BU ASU game, besides Tkachuk and the drafted players are there any other players to watch for? Thanks.

    NTDP Camp for the 2002 birth year should be announced really soon.

    Anyone hearing anything? Who are your top "must-gets" for the program?

    It seems like Antonio Stranges, Dylan Peterson, and Ty Smilanic are the top three forward targets.

    honestly, this has been one of the least talked about birth years I can remember. Don't know much about them as few have stood out.

    the big 3 are there as you listed, hopeful they get all 3 as they are the best in the country right now...by far.

    Alex Tuch's brother Luke Tuch is a no brainer.
    Nick DeSantis out of Selects Hockey Academy I have heard nice buzz on...
    Tanner Latsch out of Honeybaked seems like a lock as well..

    losing Nicholas Robertson to the OHL hurt this group a bit as that kid is awesome...tiny but awesome.

    outside of those names, need to hear more names as info isn't coming like years past.

    It could all be for not, but there seems to be a lot of forward talent available. Who knows how much will end up as high-end talent, but the depth at least seems to be there. I've heard very little about the defensemen though, and outside of Commesso, I've heard nothing about the goalies.

    maybe one of our good Minnesota posters can chime in on the 02' talent coming??...haven't heard much about anyone coming from there compared to 01' which looks to be a great birth year for Minnesota talent..

    any other prep players we need to be hearing about right now??

    Daniel Laatsch (D) from Team Wisc should be a lock.

    for a second there, I thought we had Bryan Berard's kid playing!! no relation apparently, but Berard has always been one of my all-time favorites coming up the ranks for this country in tier-1

    I'd heard that the full list won't be out until Monday but it seems to be trickling out now.

    Have heard good things about Powell's game. I've seen a couple SSM games and liked Morrow's steady play, could see him right in the mix as a third pairing type guy. Hoping to get a look at Spencer Evans this weekend at the OHL Cup.

    Have to think Truscott is as close to a lock as it gets. Great skater who's a very good playmaker at the offensive blue line. Not especially dynamic, but I haven't seen any American defenders in this age group yet who are.

    Pretty straight forward, no really surprising snubs. Some names that I've heard being possible over the last year like Gerard Keane, Stephen Halliday, and Chase Bradley didn't make it but all of the big names are there. Seems like another good year with a ton of talent for the NTDP with the big name forwards especially.

    So the deal with Halliday is that he's likely Canadian. Played most of his minor hockey in Oakville before moving to Maryland. I've seen him play roughly a dozen times. If he were eligible, he'd be a lock.
