    Mastrosimone is 100%.
    Fully working out, power skating, played some games in Boston Pro league and was in Chicago last few days skating with Steel skills coach and former teammates.
    Was back on ice 3.5 weeks from injury, basically a non event outside of having to miss WJSS.

    BU would make a lot sense if Kasper stays for his senior year, which he likely will unless he has a monster year this year. Having a fellow countrymen could help ease the transition, for sure.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was one of the seven Michigan schools. U of M would be ideal from a development perspective and allow for a lot of touches from Horc and/or Cleary, which is important given how raw Antti is.

    I would think MSU is easier to crack and Horcoff would have the connections to get him a scholarship.

    HisNoodliness Seider's a big reach? He does have a 6'8 wingspan

    That's awesome news. He was one of my favorite picks this year and that injury was a real downer.

    What sucks is Antii is already playing in the U20 leagues in Finland right now. Has already played a game. I realize College hockey hasn’t started yet but I really wonder where he will be once October rolls around.

    I dont think an early second round pick is going to have an issue getting a scholarship from just about anywhere though.

    Was it one of the reason we drafted him? Hope others will do better

    Did the Wings draft him because he wanted to play NCAA hockey? No, probably not. I am guessing they drafted him because they like how he projects as a pro player.

    Apparently scouts thought he could’ve played in a better league last year but held out in order to play NCAA. Didn’t know he was playing another year in the U20 Finnish league. Not very good developmentally.

    I think they know that was the case.

    If everything goes well, he'll be our "Parayko". After 5 years, comes in NHL as 100% ready cheap ELC defenceman which will help significantly (under the salary pressure), when our team is reaching on the top again.

    It's an investment further on the future.

    We drafted guy who supposed to go in 3rd round in early second so he can take his time. Into development.

    Yeah...?

    Just like we took Tyler Bertuzzi 6 years ago. We took him "too soon" and it took five years for him to develop, before he was NHL regular.

    Paths are different, but time scale could be the same.

    Antti Tuomisto:
    1 year at Finnish junriors
    4 years at NCAA
    6th year, 2024-25 NHL regular

    Tyler Bertuzzi:
    2 years at OHL
    3 years a Griffins
    6th year, 2018-19, NHL regular

    So what's wrong?
