DeKeyser is still on just about every NHL team's FA wish list too.
Some other collegiate FAs that NHL teams are looking closely at (and keep in mind that not all of these guys are seniors and this is NOT a complete list nor are the players listed in any particular order):
F Antoine Laganiere - Yale
F Eriah Hayes - Minnesota State Mankato
F Drew LeBlanc - St. Cloud
D Shayne Taker - Notre Dame
F Rylan Schwartz - Colorado College
and F Ryan Walters - Nebraska-Omaha (from what I know/have heard, there are only a handful of NHL teams looking at him right now, but since he currently leads the nation in scoring, I've included him)
Schmidt is 6' 195, which is decent size, I could see him being a Keith Yandle type of player. I didn't realize teams were looking at Leblanc and Hayes, but Schwartz and Walters would not surprise me at all, they can both really play.
