Wednesday Morning Post

  • The College Hockey News released its preseason All-CHN Teams and UND senior Dillon Simpson was named to the second team.
  • USCHO published its WCHA women's preview and they have North Dakota finishing second. They also released a more in-depth team preview of UND.
  • The Chicago Tribune examines the professional accomplishments of Jonathan Toews and says he compares more than favorably to the likes of Jordan, Gretzky, and Lemieux. (Note: Link to article did not work in Internet Explorer or Chrome, but it did in Firefox and mobile browser)
  • Motivated by what he calls just an average season, Zach Parise is looking to help lead the Minnesota Wild to the next level.
  • The NCHC listed the alums of member programs to make NHL opening day rosters and North Dakota leads the way with nine.
  • TJ Oshie says his ankle finally feels 100% for the first time in years.
  • Hockey This Week explores Brock Nelson's famous bloodlines.
  • Future Considerations released its October rankings of the top 30 NHL Draft prospects and UND commit Nick Schmaltz came in at number 19. Schmaltz made quite a jump as he did not appear on FC's preliminary rankings back in July, when Austin Poganski was ranked number 26.
  • The Scouting Report says Schmaltz's performance at last week's All-American Prospects Game helped bump up his draft stock, and they also had high praise for the performance of Shane Gersich.
  • Due to a lower body injury, recruit Trevor Olson has yet to play a game for Sioux City this season after being named team captain. He was scheduled to have an MRI earlier this week and based on this Tweet the results do not seem to have been favorable.  Olson, an over-ager who is in his last season of junior eligibility, really saw his USHL career take off last season following his trade to Sioux City from Green Bay.
