He's the 8th pick in Round 2. Not too bad. Expecting at least 2 more today.

I wish the Bruins would pick up a UMASS player. Today's news about Makar puts an end to my hope to see him in a spoked B uniform.

You mean Cale's contract or are you talking about Taylor?

I had this dream that Cale Makar would become an unrestricted free agent and sign with the Bruins. We would have a new "Bobby Orr". But it appears that the Avalanche has wrapped him up with a six-year contract with lots of cash. I wish nothing but the best for Cale as long as he doesn't beat the Broons.

Does anyone know how many roster players (including freshmen) have been drafted? A list would be appreciated.

From the UMassAthletics site

Morrow, Lopina, Ufko and Makar along with Matthew Kessel (St. Louis) and Lucas Mercuri (Carolina) and Slava Demin (Chicago) give the Minutemen a total of seven drafted players on their roster for the 2021-22 season.


FYI - Denim is already on his second organization, drafted by LV an as his rights were traded to Chicago.

Nice article on The Athletic today with lots of mentions of Zac Jones and his summer skating and prep.

Filip Lindberg played half the game last night, stopping 12 of 13. He was wearing his UMass helmet.

Most indispensable player on each NHL Team. 2 Minutemen made the list. We all know who 1 of them is, the other may surprise you.
