UNH News

Let's start with some future 'Cats.

USHL All-Stars!

Phil DeSimone (Sioux City) and Blake Kessel (Waterloo) have made their respective All-Star Teams. They are '07 and '08 recruits respectively and you can see their stats down in the Future 'Cats section.

Mike Sislo (Green Bay), '07, gets a glowing report from his coach and UNH assistant coach, Scott Borek. His coach had this to say as reported by USHR.

”He’s an unbelievable young man,” Gamblers head coach Mark Mazzoleni said. “(UNH assistant coach) Scott Borek said he was one of the most impressive young men they’ve had visit there in a long time.”

“On the ice, he’s really blossomed this year,” Mazzoleni added. “He’s a tremendous skater. He feels and understands the game well. And he shoots like an NHLer. From mid-November to now he’s really come on. UNH covers our league so well, and they just jumped on him. He’s great for that program. They like the skating game – and he can finish. I think UNH got a high-end player.”

I think they will need to teach him to play better on the defensive side of the puck once he arrives in order to improve his unimpressive -11 rating - it sounds like he will be very receptive and should turn out to be a quite respectable player.

Alumni News:

Sean Collins continues to play with Josh Prudden and Garrett Stafford for the Worcester Sharks. Look for them to contribute more and more to Worcester's success.

Jason Krog, now playing for the NY Rangers, proves the move was a good one. He scored the game-winning goal in the third period today to lift the Rangers to a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

And, Darren Haydar, continues his tirade against the AHL now having posted 88 points, four off of last year's 80 game total, in just 48 games.

Justin Aikins' stats have been added to the pros list - he continues to be a consistent, near-point per game producer with the ECHL's Phoenix Roadrunners.

Go 'Cats!
