Here's what the blog United States of Hockey says about our two new NCAA players:

Columbus Blue Jackets

Shawn Hunwick^ — Michigan — The senior goaltender may have gotten a contract based on necessity, as Steve Mason went down with injury, requiring the Jackets to call upon Hunwick as an emergency back up. He’ll stay with the club for the remainder of the season though and might get a chance to see some game action. This is one of the most incredible stories in hockey. Even if Hunwick doesn’t stick (he very well could), he’ll go down as one of the unlikeliest players to reach the NHL.

Sean Collins# — Cornell — Collins just wrapped up a really strong career for the Big Red. A seventh round pick by the Jackets in 2008, Collins had his best season to date. He was a big part of Cornell’s run to the national tournament and first-round upset of Michigan. Collins posted a career-best 13 goals and 26 assists in his senior campaign, a significant uptick in production from the previous year. Collins also has great size at 6-foot-3 and can play a two-way game. Cornell always develops good, gritty forwards that can push the pace and play the body. Collins is one of those guys.
