Now that Coach Carvel and his staff have indicated that they’re done assembling their first recruiting class and we know about the current players who will not be returning next year, it’s time to take a fresh look at where the program is from a recruiting standpoint. Recruiting is a fluid situation even in normal situations, so it’s been a challenge to try to keep up with all the new names that have recently committed while following which previous recruits are still committed to the school. I believe all my information is up to date. So first up, let’s take a look at the future Minutemen due in Amherst this fall.

In my last recruit update I passed along the news that recruits Cale Makar and Matt Murray were named award winners for the AJHL. Well recently the Brooks Bandits held an on-ice ceremony to announce their team awards and a couple of Minutebandits were winners. Cale Makar was named co-Rookie of the Year while Shane Bear won Defenseman of the year. You can view the ceremony here.

Despite the obvious challenges surrounding the program right now coach John Micheletto has been able to continue to secure commitments from recruits to join the Massachusetts program. And he continues to bring some pretty good talent to UMass. Today’s commitment was from goaltender Matt Murray of the Spruce Grove Saints of the AJHL. Murray would likely join the Minutemen for the 2017-18 season after Alex Wakaluk graduates.

I’ve been busy the last few weeks with work (bad) and vacation (very good) so time to catch up on the news around the Massachusetts hockey program since my last post.
Of course the biggest news, at least in this area, was former Minuteman defenseman Matt Irwin signing with a one year deal with the Boston Bruins. Irwin will become the first UMass hockey player to suit up the Bruins, assuming Frank Vatrano doesn’t somehow beat him onto the Garden ice first.

The Massachusetts hockey program picked up a commitment tonight from 6’1”, 175lb defenseman Colin Felix. Felix is a ‘99 birth year so he’d likely arrive in Amherst in 2018, joining fellow defenseman Brian Scoville as the second commitment for that fall.
