He's from the bay area, right?

Hunwick seems a little smallish. Mason and York are the only 2 goalies the Jackets have under contract that aren't injured, so it's an emergency situation.
Hunwick is definitely small, but he's shown incredible things in the NCAA. Great signing for the Jackets. He'll need some time to adjust to the pros though and he shouldn't be in the NHL next year.

Off the top of my head, grew up in Minnesota but finished high school in Pleasanton (~40 minutes north of San Jose).

@TBLightning: Lightning sign Minnesota-Duluth forward JT Brown this evening. He looks to play for the Bolts later this week or early next.


Awesome. Very excited about this guy. Good start to the offseason for TB IMO.

This should help ease the wounds from trading Downie away.

I stated that because of how he attended their rookie camp last year and seemed like a player on their radar. they obviously liked what they saw and signed him.

he was born in Cali, but I believe he spent the majority of his time in the midwest/Minnesota area IIRC.

Well I was wrong about Brown. Getting a chance to play this year in NHL can do that I guess.

Also what happened to Andrej Sustr? Wasnt he gaining some pretty strong interest at one point?

I don't know, but I very hope that the Leafs will try to sign him.

Having a 21 years old 6'8" defenseman with a decent skill set in the system would be a nice additon if developed well.

Who is left that will sign? I think it is safe to say that Sustr will be going back to school since his season ended a while ago. Besides Jeremy Welsh of Union, any talented free agents that are projected to sign out there?

jack connolly (minnesota-duluth)
ludwig karlsson (northeastern - but i doubt he leaves after one year)
matt mangene (maine - only a junior though, so he doesnt have to leave)
kelly zajac (union - they're still playing though)
troy grosenick (see zajac)
nate schmidt (minnesota - still playing)

for goalies i don't see much outside of grosenick. people may say Cody Reichard but I don't think he's worth anything, but I do like some underclassmen such as michigan state's Will Yanakeff and denver's Juho Olkinuora.

Karlsson is coming back for another year.

I'm also hearing that Chris Rawlings may be coming back too. He's considered one of the top (undrafted) goalies available.

cyred: IMO, Sustr just didn't have a very good year. Sure, he has the size but didn't do anything that was really noteworthy with UNO.

I hope Kelly Zajac signs with his hometown team. He seems like a pretty good prospect.

Plus maybe he can lure Travis here next year

Yes Chris Rawlings is pretty much definitely returning, which meant Jon Gillies decommitting. This is Rawlings' chance to have a big rebound year and show some consistency. No one knows how long Karlsson is going to stay, but it appears he's one of the great college athletes that actually value an education.

Like you, I've seen the Huskies numerous times this season. And I think the one thing we can both agree on is that if Karlsson continues to develop at the pace he did this season, he'll almost be a guaranteed top UFA (even more than right now) at this time next year.

I haven't seen him play, and I know that stats aren't everything, but a 6'8" defenseman with 17 points in 33 games is worth the developing I think?

I thought the same thing- I saw NU at Minnesota this year and came away thinking that Karlsson's time at the NCAA level will be short-lived.
