    Drafted before a college commit. That's rare

    Yeah I was scrambling around trying to figure out where he's going for college.

    Going juniors instead? Or has he said he's going the NCAA route?

    Seems like a sleeper that could be a really good pick.

    From Grand Rapids, can probably just confirm he is going to UMD right now.

    Hope so. Maybe the lack of a college commit kept him under the radar somewhat?

    Nice to know if he had a date with any celebrity he'd choose Sidney Crosby.

    I think he has another year left of high school actually. He'll probably go play USHL, but I'm guessing that's why he hasn't committed anywhere yet.

    Correct, he was just a junior this year.

    I watched him play a few times, he's got some good size and he uses it fairly well but he'll have to work on his foot speed.

    I wishi could post this on every MNHSL draftee there was.

    TJ Oshie, Blake Wheeler, Nick Leddy, McDonaugh, Gardiner, etc...

    Pat White, Brian Lee, Derek Fischer, Derek Forbort? etc...

    The list goes on. All guys who dominated high school in very simular ways and then the later half hit a wall in college. The list of made its is much longer than the nevers or the fringe NHLers. This is also 1st rounders, Paul Martin was a 2nd rounder and turned out well.

    People who claim to be in the know will tell you they knew otherwise on each individual case. None will chime in on Avery only how they knew White or Fischer were not going to be good NHLers.

    Needs to play USHL to get a better picture. Does not need to play USHL to have success. It will paint a better picture. Even in Pat Whites case though, 8 goals in 12 USHL games.

    More than a few GR kids have come to the Minnesota.

    Pat White, Bischoff, Goligoski to name a few.

    Is he good though ? That's what I'm wondering..
     
  22. 2nd best on his team, probably 3rd best potential on his team after the Bischoffs.

    It's hard to judge because he's facing weaker talent than say CHL or USHL kids would be. Higher risk but higher reward because they typically go later in the draft.

    He was pretty solid playing for Sioux City, which is where he'll likely be next year.

    Pretty raw, but has good hands and vision. Showed improvement in using his size to his advantage over the course of the year.

    I'm wondering why he hasn't committed to a college yet?...Do you know if a CHL team is holding his rights? If so, maybe he could go the Junior route instead?
