I'm okay with that because he might not be good enough. Beniers OTOH is a projected early pick.

He's from Hingham so hopefully the parents just have Boston Disease. His other choice was BC.

The Manderville kid was a pretty decent recruit, although certainly nowhere near the recruit Beniers is. Too bad we couldn’t leverage the double legacy in his case.

Howe previously played for Upper Canada College (which I believe is actually a prep school), where Colin Greening came from. So some additional Cornell pedigree there.

I think Mike Quinn and Gary Meager may have been from Barrie. Neither played a great number of varsity games. The bar was high to advance from the freshman team in the spring of 1971 to THE team in the fall.

I imagine NCAA recruiters had to BS all the prospective freshman that they would make it.

Most of the players are veterans of the Canadian Junior B league (only Goodkind and Straight are Americans)' where offensive checking is legal.

Huh? When did offensive checking become legal in the NC$$? Or was this just a Frosh team rule?

Carrying over from Tom's post on the Yale thread, I love seeing Malinski on the pp as a freshman. He looks absolutely comfortable out there -- part of the phenomenal freshman class. As a veteran observer of the program told me last weekend: "we replaced three solid senior defensemen with freshmen and I don't notice the difference."

SSS comments on the frosh:

Malone: perfectly cromulent with a flash now and then
Tupker 14: insufficient data for a meaningful answer
Tupker 21: already battling Motley for the 19th skater role
Stienburg: very sharp and skilled, could be a star
Berard: I didn't notice him much but hey no big mistakes

Muzyka: insufficient data for a meaningful answer
Dirven: invisible; that's a good thing for a freshman D
Mitchell: Always seems to be in the right place
Malinski: back-to-back ECAC ROTW!

I don't even mean it in a Bobby Shore old-time-hockey way, I just mean when I see him, it's mostly because he's working for possession.

I understood that. They are the guys who won't leave the boards or the corner as long as the opponent has possession. I love those guys, too. IIRC Greening was great at it, so it isn't mutually exclusive of talent. Mullin is great at it. It's really hard work.

Mike lives for that shit, so if Dirven's doing it he's going to log quality time.

Not just a frosh rule, there was no body checking in the offensive zone in NCAA hockey when I was in school. Nevertheless, Ned's teams were awesome, aggressive forechecking teams, but it was like a full court press - no body hits but we were totally on top of the other team's attempts to get the puck out of their D zone. In a conversation I had one time with Giles Threadgold, the best ref in my era, he stated that John Hughes was the best forechecker he had ever seen in college hockey.

What was the rationale for just the O zone? Less chance of injury backchecking than forechecking?

I have neither Quinn nor Meager in my records. Was Gary any relation to the amazing BU Meager brothers (Terry and Rick)? They were from Belleville.

Before this goes any further off track, see the attached rosters from the varsity vs. freshmen game of Nov. 1970.

There is no Gary "Meagher". There is a Gary Meger. I haven't been able to find a freshman team roster listing hometowns, so I have no idea where he was from.

The "Future Recruits (not incoming)" topic has a Phorum Database Error and only 6 posts, and the "Incoming Recruits" topic never was solely about "incoming" recruits but suffered from acute thread drift. So I am reviving the latter.

The Nanaimo Clippers (remember them?), announced yesterday that Jack O'Brian, the youngest member of the team, has committed to Cornell for the 2022-2023 season.

Here are some excerpts from the announcement:

Darren Naylor, Vice President and Head Coach of the Clippers
Jack is a throwback type defenceman whose first objective is to take care of his own end. He is extremely calm and rarely makes a poor decision. Jack is a natural leader and mature beyond his years. This is a first of what will be many accolades for Jack moving forward including a future high NHL draft pick.

and

ROOKIE 2003 DEFENCEMAN JACK O’BRIEN COMMITS TO CORNELL UNIVERSITY
As a 16 year old, O’Brien is the youngest Clipper this season yet he has been a mainstay on a Clippers’ defence core that currently has allowed the 2nd fewest goals against in the BCHL. He has taken on a defensive role and has shown incredible poise and maturity that one would expect from a 19-20 year-old veteran defenceman.

New recruit with the cool name of Sullivan Mack, a smallish (5’11” 180 lb) but speedy forward who’s scoring at an almost 2 ppg clip at Kimball Union Academy. I can’t seem to post Neutral Zone’s tweet about the commitment, but NZ says Mack has moved from 3.25 stars to a “high” 3.75 star rating, and that he’s a “High compete player w/a high ceiling.”

Mack is already 19, so I would imagine he’ll be coming to Ithaca next season.

We then would have 4 F / 2 D slated to replace 3 F / 1 D (Bauld, Malott, I don't wanna think about it, and Kaldis):

F Cobb (3/02)
D Lagerstrom (3/00)
F Mack (7/00)
F O'Leary (3/00)
F Penney (10/00)
D Rayhill (3/01)

Unless we're really going to 18 F (+6) and 10 D (+4) that suggests to me that Lagerstrom is still hurt and/or Cobb will get a year of seasoning in the USHL.

Do you know how many states and Canadian provinces have produced Cornell players over the years? I know that we once went through this exercise for RPI, but I don't recall how many states there were. We have had players from all of the Canadian provinces, unless you count Yukon, NWT, and Nunavut, or regard Labrador being separate from Newfoundland.

Several sites listed him as a Holy Cross commit last spring/summer.... I guess he changed his mind... Our gain; HC's loss!
Rego was a point-per-game defenseman on the top team in the AJHL's West Division after playing prep school hockey in Massachusetts. I wonder if this season drew extra recruiting attention...

Looks like we're getting another Kaldis/Malinsky type D-man, which will be nice with Yanni graduating.

Rego is another 2000 hence probably another for Fall 2020.

19-33-52 in 46 GP for Brooks; leading D scorer on his team by a huge margin. 2nd among D scoring in the entire league. The #1 guy (Michael Benning) is a Denver commit.

We seem to be getting high quality as well as quantity. And that is how it's done.

Neutral Zone says Rego is a “polished skater and two-way D-man. Soft hands and makes accurate passes. Keeps his gaps tight, can run a PP, upside as a top-4 guy at Cornell. Versatile and athletic.”

By my stats we have never had an Alaskan-born player. Sullivan Mack is from Anchorage.

Do you know how many states and Canadian provinces have produced Cornell players over the years? I know that we once went through this exercise for RPI, but I don't recall how many states there were. We have had players from all of the Canadian provinces, unless you count Yukon, NWT, and Nunavut, or regard Labrador being separate from Newfoundland.

States:

CA
CO
CT
DE
DC
FL
IL
MD
MA
MI

Depends on your definition of "player from" ...

Geoff Raynak, from Franklin, VT, was a backup goalie on the 92-93 team. Never played, but was definitely on the roster.

New recruit with the cool name of Sullivan Mack, a smallish (5’11” 180 lb) but speedy forward who’s scoring at an almost 2 ppg clip at Kimball Union Academy. I can’t seem to post Neutral Zone’s tweet about the commitment, but NZ says Mack has moved from 3.25 stars to a “high” 3.75 star rating, and that he’s a “High compete player w/a high ceiling.”

Mack is already 19, so I would imagine he’ll be coming to Ithaca next season.

Looking at the roster it appears he has a younger brother named Revelin.

From the NE Hockey Journal:

Mack's commitment to the Big Red ends one of the most hotly contested recruiting battles of the prep season. The Anchorage, Alaska, native was being procured by several top programs, including Denver and Michigan. There was known Ivy interest with Cornell and Harvard.

Not bad for a very small farm town with only about 1,400 people. Franklin is on the Canadian border and just east of St. Albans. Maybe there is something good in the (frozen) water since John Leclair is from St. Albans. I live in Vermont and work with dairy farmers all over the area. With a town that size, I am sure I know some people that know Geoff.

Kanji was one of the incorrect answers to one of the scoreboard quiz questions last week. I'm not certain, but I think the question may have been who was the last player to wear the number 1 before it was retired.

Bantam doesn't mean shit but Kovich had a 67-72-139 season in 67 GP in 2017.

But for perspective, Gretzky had a 378-139-517 season in 85 GP.

From this review of the CJHL Top Prospects Game:
[www.thedraftanalyst.com]


LW Kyler Kovich
Nanaimo, BCHL | 6’0, 180 | 1/31/02 | NCAA: Undecided

Kovich easily was one of the more impressive forwards throughout the game. He was physical with an in-your-face style, but he also looked very smooth with the puck in transition while showing off soft hands. Kovich spent most of the match on Team West’s top line with Danny Weight and Carter Savoie, but Kovich was far from a passenger. He’s a very good skater who made well-timed reads that helped him get an extra step or two on puck-gazing opponents. Although he played alongside several dependable puck handlers, Kovich confidently carried the puck through the zone and made smart plays near the line. His vision, timing of pass delivery, and pass accuracy were impressive as well.

Based on the public info Kovich seems like the kind of recruit that will fit right in with our style of play and be an early contributor.

The staff has done a terrific job the past few yers identifying talented players who fit well with the high tempo system the coaches have installed, and who can get through admissions. While there’s no guarantees of course, it’s nice to be able to enjoy current success while keeping an eye to a future that continues to look bright.

It's hard to tell. I guess maybe if they went in the juniors draft we could measure it by their draft position, but we really do not know until they go in the NHL draft or they get here and we can actually see them.

I've never really known how to quantify commitments. There are systems similar to the 5 star football ratings but in hockey those seem to be in their infancy.

I've never really known how to quantify commitments. There are systems similar to the 5 star football ratings but in hockey those seem to be in their infancy.

In any case, three observations:
  1. In the college game higher draft picks may be a liability because of the importance of upperclass players. Higher draft picks may be less used to being role players, which is what most underclass players are. And they are more likely to go pro earlier, depriving the team of senior and junior skills and leadership. Exhibit A: The two Boston Commonwealth Avenue teams in the first half of this season.
  2. Unlike basketball, where 1-2 superior talents often carry entire teams, hockey, with its frequent line changes, requires more balanced depth and the ability to play a certain style of play (aka "the system" ) so that as a season progresses (with injuries, illnesses, game situations, and such) players can be interchangeable. Therefore, players drafted in the fourth round or later may be more valuable to a team than higher picks. Exhibit B: Harvard during the Ryan Donato years.
  3. As an Ivy League school, Cornell has to recruit student athletes who really are students. This implies players who have athletic potential and are likely to mature into superior talents may be better recruits than the first-rounders who can't get in, or can't stay in, or can't handle the workload -- both academic and athletic. Exhibit C: Matt Stienburg is an example of such a high-potential player.
