    Tyce Thompson makes 2nd team all-Hockey East. Word is he's going back to school for his junior year....

    Makes sense if he goes back for another year. Aside from the abrupt end to this year, Providence has a young team that could do some damage next year especially if Jack Dugan returns.

    At least for me, one more year at college would be more attractive than a likely year in the AHL.

    It is going to be crowded at BING next season at forward with all the young players already in place. The organization needs to turn the team over to the guys that can’t cut it in NJ to see what they have. Guys like Gignac Bastian Sharangovich Studenic etc. have been in the AHL long enough that they should be asked to be the core of the team. You still have Merkley Kuokkanen and some others as well who may not earn spots with NJ. Maybe they flop but you have to give them that opportunity.

    Future Watch 2020: The NHL's top 10 rising prospects - TheHockeyNews

    “3. KEVIN BAHL, D, NEW JERSEY DEVILS (+41)

    Last year: Not ranked in top 100
    This year: 60th

    Bahl is the opposite of Lundkvist. If Bahl were drafted in 2003, he might have been a first-rounder given he stands a hulking 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds. Instead, Bahl went in the second round of the 2018 draft, 27 picks after Lundkvist. It’s pretty clear what Bahl will bring: a heavy shutdown game which, if he can reach his ceiling, could turn him into a Brandon Carlo type, as Devils assistant GM Dan MacKinnon tells our correspondent Justin Birnbaum in Future Watch 2020. As you can expect, Bahl has to work on getting that big body movin’ and improving his skating if he’s going to make it at the NHL level. The Devils acquired Bahl as part of the Taylor Hall trade with the Arizona Coyotes in December.”

    Big jump up for Bahl on this list. I wonder how people would have felt about the trade if there was a publication that had him ranked at this level at the time of the trade.

    The potential is certainly there however it's not really his skating per say that I am worried about, it is his change in direction. He gets in trouble in open ice. He closes very well once he finally does change direction. I certainly wouldn't rush him, let him season in the AHL for a year and a half before any decision is made.

    Kind of something to keep in the back of our minds but there really isn't something to get worked up about, yet...

    Get a 3rd round pick for him and be done with it. I was never a fan of his game other than his shot/passing ability, some team will overvalue him.

    Not particularly worried that he's going back. I didn't think he was going to challenge for an NHL spot next season and I can't fault Walsh for finishing his degree over a year in the AHL.

    I am not sure how good Harvard was this season but you may see many college players play additional season due to the situation at hand.

    plus i'm sure a lot of players and teams have unfinished business, seeing as the NCAA season ended early

    I figured we knew he would go the distance to get his degree. He is at Harvard after all. Plus the current situation cut his junior season short.

    ESPNU is showing a replay of last year’s Providence / UMD tournament game in case anybody needs a Tyce Thompson fix.

    It's really a shame he had an off year. He appears to do everything right and is a much better talent than many (not saying anyone here) gives him credit for. He's smart, tough, an has enough skill that he really seemed to have a shot at some sort of an NHL future. Hopefully he rebounds and has a good season and NJ can sign him when it ends (assuming winter college sports happen at all - ugh please let there be a breakthrough on the vaccine or at least treatment front).

    He has 2 more years of college and then after his senior year he would have to wait until, I believe, August 15th to turn UFA.
