Most junior hockey circuits in Canada have either finished their regular season or are on the cusp of doing so, making it as good a time as any to check in on how UAA's recruits for next season fared in their final season before making the jump to Division I college pucks.
Basically, the Seawolves' recruits for next season, six forwards, have averaged about a point per game as a group.
*Brent Baltus of the British Columbia Hockey League's Trail Smoke Eaters (which remains an awesome name) was named second-team All-Interior Conference and tied for 19th in the league in points with 24-27--51 totals in 46 games.
* Michael Stenerson of the BCHL's Surrey Eagles tied Baltus for 19th in points with 17-34--51 totals in 53 games.
*Zack Rassell of the Alberta Junior Hockey League's Canmore Eagles ranked 12th in that league in points with 25-29--54 totals in 54 games.
*Dylan Hubbs of the AJHL's Olds Grizzlys tied for 16th in the league in points with 17-33--50 totals in 57 games and led everyone on the circuit with 255 penalty minutes. He also won the league's award as Most Dedicated Player. He was certainly dedicated to getting his name in the scoring summary, what with those points and PIMs.
*Tanner Dusyk of the AJHL's Bonnyville Pontiacs tied for 19th in the league in points with 22-26--48 totals in 49 games.
*And Hudson Friesen of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League's Selkirk Steelers tied for 21st in the league in points with 25-30--55 totals in 55 games.
One other junior note: Grande Prairie Storm goaltender Nick Kulmanovsky of Fairbanks was selected the AJHL's Top Goaltender by league coaches and general managers. He went 24-12-0 with a 2.49 goals-against average, .918 save percentage and one shutout.
