Lessio leaves Ice-Dogs?

The Niagara Ice-Dogs training camp has been going on this week and highly touted first round draft pick Lucas Lessio showed up at the beginning of camp but is now nowhere to be seen.

It would appear that Lessio will play at St. Mike's this year before enrolling at Michigan the following season.

If this is indeed the case then the Ice-Dogs gambled and lost with the 7th overall pick although they will receive a compensatory first round pick in 2010 (8th overall).

Anybody have anything else to add in this situation?

the compensatory pick for not signing our first rounder is a first rounder one spot lower than what Lessio was selected at which is number 8.

as of right now Lessio claims he left to sort some things out so I'm thinking if he comes back for the black and white game tonight hes in, if not then good luck at michigan!

Lessio is on the Black roster for the Black and White game in St. Catharines tonight. It will be interesting to see if he shows up. He had expressed interest to Dave Brown about attending the game regardless so I don't know if him being there means that he's going to sign. He might if he has a good game!

Lessio did not show up for the Black and White game, Dave Brown was quoted as saying that he signed with the Buzzers but seems to think he still might play for the team. I really don't know what to think...

Lessio played for St. Mike's Buzzers last night and scored 2, adding an assist, in a 5-4 loss to Whitby Fury, wearing #18.
Word is he signed with Buzzers almost 3 weeks ago, prior to attending Dogs camp.

Publicly committed to the Univ. of Michigan today, for whatever that's worth.

Lessio dealt to Oshawa today.

Interesting to say the least. I suppose we'll see if he reports to Oshawa now. It's certainly closer to home. Considering the 2nd rounder going to Niagara, I'd have to assume that the Gens have talked to Lessio and he's told them he'd report.

I know The Gen's coach Chris Depirio was the St. Mike's Buzzer Coach and GM prior to coaching the Gen's so maybe has kept in contact and with Lessio playing talk to him about the chances playing for the Shwa if we trade for him. or is this tampering?

nice pick up for the Gen's if he will reports.

Give Dave Brown credit, here. He gambled on Lessio and lost, but now has made the best of the situation.
