Early Weekend Notes

The Under-18 Team opened up their college hockey schedule with a victory over University of Alaska Anchorage 4-3. Ryan Bourque, Jeremy Morin, and Kenny Ryan (2) were the goal scorers for the Americans. They play Univ. of Alaska-Fairbanks tomorrow. The Under-17 Team doesn't hit the ice again until October 10th.

With the USHL Fall Classic taking place this weekend, don't be surprised to see players committing this weekend. All 60 NCAA schools will be there plus the NHL scouts. Miami received a commitment from Cody Murphy, a left winger that plays for
Cedar Rapids. Last year with Team Illinois of the MWEHL, he had 14 goals and 8 assists in 24 games. So far at the Fall Classic he has no points.

Appartenly Michigan has gotten a commitment from Jacob Fallon. He's currently with the USA Under-17 Team.

Boston College got a commitment and lost out on one. Wednesday, they received a commitment from offensive defenseman Brian Dumoulin. I am surprised that he will be with the Eagles next year, I thought he would play an extra year of juniors. This kid has the talent, so I shouldn't really be that surprised.

Brendan Rempel has choosen Harvard over Boston College. He played for Avon Old Farms last season but has joined the NTDP for this season.

The Edmonton Oilers have signed goaltender Andrew Perugini who had been with the Sarnia Sting. Last season he had a 28-20-2 record, with a 3.09 goals against average and a .918 save percentage with the Sting and the Barrie Colts.

The Montreal Canadiens have signed Swiss goaltender Robert Mayer. With the Saint John Sea Dogs last season he had 16-10-1 record with a .887 save percentage and a 3.77 goals against average.

That's My Take
