Saad and Arnold to the NTDP?

USHR is reporting the National Team Development Program have received committments from 92' forwards Brandon Saad and Bill Arnold. Speaking with Chris Peters today, the director of media relations of the NTDP, he couldn't comment on the report.

Saad is one of the best uncommitted 1992 born players in the country. With the Mahoning Valley Phantoms of the NAHL, he had 29 goals and 18 assists in 46 games. In the playoffs, he had a goal and six assists in seven games. Last week, the Youngstown Phantoms (formerly known as the Mahoning Valley Phantoms) took him in the USHL draft. The Saginaw Spirit took him the first round of the 2008 draft.

Arnold who's committed Boston College for 2011 played with Nobles Prep last season.

That's My Take
