    LaxSabre - Congrats Will! Hopefully the Sabres mention that he won a bronze medal before tonights game vs Florida.
    Then have him attend a future game - if its possible - and be honored with something like a plaque.
    You could have someone like Eichel-Reinhart-Ristolainen or all three - give him the plaque.

    He's still years away though, so who knows what the roster may look like by the time he's NHL ready.

    Maybe we can trade him straight up for Drouin while his stock is highest. :sarcasm:

    Seemed to me Borgen was uneven in the round-robin, getting up to the pace and the level of competition. By the medal round he was without a doubt the #1 USA defender for breaking the puck out of the zone. Skating it out past a forecheck, stretch passes on the tape, turning it back to his partner when nothing was there. While the rest of the defense was wilting under forecheck Borgen was calming things down and always making the right play. Combine that with being by far the toughest and meanest of the American defense and he did everything you want to see a defenseman do that will translate to the next level. He's shooting up my next prospect rankings whenever that happens. I still favor Guhle because of his pre-season showing and handedness but there's not as much separation as I thought.

    I didn't catch a minute of Team USA in the WJC and didn't watch much at all to be honest but it sounds like we made another solid pick with Borgen. Good to hear.

    Pronman liked Borgen's game at the WJC, listing him as one of the "surprises" of the tourney:

    On Murray's latest WGR interview, they asked him what the highlight of his 8-day scouting trip was; Murray's longest scouting trip in over a decade, apparently. He saw Fasching a lot, as well as many other Sabres prospects and 2016 draft eligables. He answered pretty quickly that seeing Borgen play two games was the highlight of the trip. He seems extremely high on this guy. Looks like his WJC play wasn't a fluke - he could be the real deal. Murray's first big draft steal?

    We will see. Buffalo has had alot of picks in the 2nd/3rd round the last few years. A few of them will pan out.

    Borgen today didn't look anywhere as good as WJC. Positioning was suspect, chasing the puck a lot, passes off the mark. He didn't really get burned for it, his teammates got behind the ball early. But I'll revise my estimates on seasoning. It'll take some time.

    Borgen added an assist on an ENG tonight as SCSU completed their QF sweep of WMU. They're still in position for one of the one-seeds in the NCAA tournament and await the winners of DU-UNO, likely DU, in the semis.

    #5-St. Cloud State/Will Borgan/Judd Peterson will play in the championship game of the 2016 National Collegiate Hockey Conference Tournament tonight.
    St. Cloud State defeated #6-Denver University 4-2 in one of the semifinals last night. They will face Minnesota Duluth who defeated North Dakota 4-2 in the other semifinal.
    The game is scheduled to face-off around 8:30 pm ET. You will be able to watch that game LIVE on the CBS College Sports Network.
    North Dakota and Denver will now play in the consolation game that will be on Saturday afternoon. Game time is 4:30 pm ET - no TV coverage is planned.

    Will Borgan was a +1 and had a 2 minute penalty for hooking that happened at 19:55 of the third period.
    The penalty resulted in a very short Denver power-play which St. Cloud State killed.

    Judd Peterson was a +2 - had 2 shots on goal - was 4 for 10 on face-offs.
    He also had 2 minute penalty - goalie interference - which happened at 2:55 of the second period.
    The penalty resulted in a Denver power-play which was killed by St. Cloud State.
