Here are the latest commitments from Chris Heisenburg.
Tanner Fritz has committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes for the 2009 season. He played with the Grande Prairie Storm of the Alberta Junior Hockey League where he had four goals and a total of eight points in 28 games.
He is one of three recruits for the 2009 season for the Buckeyes. Brad Smith is another right winger who played for Detroit Belle Tire. He had 10 goals and 20 points in 30 contests. Devon Krogh is another player from Western Canada, he played with the Penticton Vees of the Beitish Columbia Hockey League. He had goal and 16 assists. He's the only defenseman in the 2009 class.
New Hampshire got a committment from 1990 born center Jeff Silengo. He played at South Kent Prep last year. He's either a 2010 or 2011 recruit.
Finally, USA Hockey has granted Jared Knight's release. He's now free to play for the London Knights. It still buggles my mind that it took so long for USA Hockey this long when he signed on with the Knights in the middle of summer.
Hopefully USA Hockey doesn't make this mistake again.
The Akim Aliu saga gets juicer, he didn't play in Saturday's game because he missed curfew on Friday night. The latest rumor is that he could be apart of a package that would land John Tavares from the Oshawa Generals. This isn't the first time that Tavares has been linked to the Knights. It's been a swirling rumor all summer. I don't see why the Generals will do this deal.
