If he comes in next season he can play with Cooley and Snuggerud probably. Oh my, talk about replacing Knies.

Love Rinzel's game from what I've seen. Optimistic he will be able to jump in and replace some of the huge departures we will have on the blue line after this year.

It appears Beckett Hendrickson is accelerating his studies and will come in the fall. He was an early birthday 11th grader so he would have had to go to the USHL next year from the NTDP. He could have used that year... But Motkzo will need bodies and only has O. Moore and Clark lined up for next year. And Clark could use another year of USHL, too.

This is really random and down the road but can Motzko recruit Lakeville native Henry Welsch. He has been phenomenal this year for UMASS Lowell and could see him coming as a grad transfer which is in 2 years. Maybe it's a stretch but if I'm being honest I just wanted an excuse to hype him up.

Sure, a transfer goalie is an option. But you don't "recruit" them until they enter the portal.

I don't know much about Welsch but a transfer goalie may be a necessity if Close doesn't use his extra year. Heck we might need one even if he does.

There have been good results with transfer goalies so yes, they should be looking and should have been looking last summer.
