Recruit Update ▲ Makar, Massie Join Dixson In Signing UMass NLIs

In last week’s post I reported that defenseman Justin Dixson signed his National Letter of Intent to play at the University of Massachusetts.  I’ve also learned that defensemen Jake Massie and Cale Makar signed their NLIs during the early signing period which ended last week.  The signings help assure that coach John Micheletto and his staff are set at the blueline for years to come.

Recruit Update ▲ Dixson Signs His National Letter Of Intent

Time to see how the recruits are doing. Last Wednesday marked the beginning of the early signing period.  Justin Dixson is the only recruit who has been publicly reported as signing his NLI.  UMass typically doesn’t announce them as they get them, but will do so with a taped scouting report from coach John Micheletto in the future.  A reader was also kind enough to point out that Shane Bear had previously signed his NLI, so I’ve made that correction below.  Today is the last day of the early signing period.

Recruit Update ▲ Cale Makar Has 4 Assist Game

The midweek game against Boston College last week meant no opportunity to check in on the recruits, so we have two weeks of games to catch up on.  We will likely be seeing news of letter of intent’s being signed, as the early signing period opens tomorrow.  Kyler Nachtigall and Ty Pelton-Byce are the only recruits who have already completed their NLIs.  I would assume you’d see Shane Bear, Jake Massie, and possible Shane Bear, and Jake McCarthy signing their letters of intent during this signing period.

Recruit Update ▲ Leonard, Buono Listed As Players To Watch By NHL Central Scouting

Happy Tuesday.  Time to take a look at how the future Minutemen are faring.  Before we do that though there was some news today concerning a current player and a recruit.  NHL Central Scouting released their preliminary Players To Watch for the upcoming season and freshman defenseman Carmine Buono and forward recruit and Amherst native John Leonard made the list.  They’re both listed as “C” prospects, meaning it’s projected they’d be picked in the later rounds.

Brooks-UMass Pipeline Lands Minutemen Another Recruit

Yet another member of the AJHL’s Brooks Bandits has committed to join the Massachusetts hockey program once their junior career is finished.  Defenseman Cale Makar is the latest Bandit to commit to John Micheletto and his staff, due to arrive in Amherst in the fall of 2017.  Current Minutemen Maddison Smiley and Patrick Lee, incoming freshman Austin Plevy, and current Bandits Shane Bear and Kyler Nachtigall are the Brooks players who previously signed up to play at UMass in recent years.
