And, the third defenseman has been added. Jaakko Haarti, 20-year-old from Finland.

From Jeff Cox:
UMass lands a nice commitment for the upcoming season in '99 LD Jaakko Haarti. Jr. A SM-liiga Defenseman of the Year and First Team All-Star with Blues U20. Good offensive, puck-moving, PP D with a heavy shot, according to one scout who has seen him play.
If you haven't seen it, Haarti has decided not to attend. Rumor has it that he and classwork didn't mesh, but it's speculation at this point. The good news, we have a much larger D man coming. Elite Prospects says it's 2020-2021 but I think he's coming this year.

Buccigross with his pre-season rankings. I'm OK with it. If Mario had stayed we would probably be in the top 4.
