Kearney and Christensen are '95s and probably ineligible anyway.
They've done it when needed due to injury. Last year they took Thatcher Demko (USHL), Michael Downing (USHL). In 2010, they took Joe Fiala (HS), Jordan Schmaltz (Midget) and Austin Wuthrich (Midget). And others before that.

As Cagney earlier said, they don't add CHLers so you won't see Blake Clarke even if you should. I'm sure they'll target Nick Schmaltz, Shane Gersich, and Chris Birdsall unless a bunch of guys are about to return from injury.
