Heres a list put out recently for WCHA+CCHA:
Another guy on that list is Shayne Taker, whom we had at Prospects camp. A Vancouver boy, a big defensive defenseman who can play physical. Something we are missing from our defense group, so he also could be a target they are looking at.
EDIT: Another prospect camp invitee that could be a target is Jeremy Langlois. If the game Gillis was rumoured to be at, it was Yale Vs Quinnipiac (Feb 2) so he would have seen Langlois as well. Quinnipiac is the top team in ECAC this year and a big part of it is because of Langlois, leading the team in points, goals and assists, and a 3rd best +/-. He started with roller hockey, started on the wing but the coach recognized how smart he was and moved him to center in the past 3 years. His coach states that he is the best defensive forward he has ever coached. He is known for a high compete level and good work ethic on the ice.
Cool, thanks for the link.
