Michigan: The NHL's Farm Team (Part Two)

I could have edited the last post and popped this in there, but I figured enough people saw the original that the update might not get seen.

Here is the link to the entire list (PDF) of ex-college hockey players in the NHL.

USA got off to a good start at the World Under 18s with an 8-0 win over Norway, and again the future Wolverines played a big role. Kevin Lynch had 2-1--3 and was +3, AJ Treais had a goal and was +2, Chris Brown had an assist and was +1. Jack Campbell "split the shutout" with Adam Murray. Actually he played 58 seconds and made one save. The US outshot Norway 65-16 (OWWWWWW).

The Americans will be back in action on Saturday against Finland.

Oakville has battled back to tighten the OJHL Championship Series to 2 games to 1 in favor of Kingston with a 5-4 overtime win in Game 3. Lindsay Sparks got back on the scoresheet with Oakville's third goal. They blew a 4-1 lead but were able to pull it out at 19:33 of the first overtime. They head back to Kingston for Game 4 tomorrow night. They alternate home games in this series.

I've always wondered how many NHL draftees Michigan has versus the other big name teams? Do you have the specifics? Can you post? C U in Detroit next year! GO BLUE!

I don't have those numbers, though they're probably out there somewhere. I did see that BU has 13 on their roster.

As for Digger, haven't heard anything about him. I would imagine he could take a shot at the ECHL/UHL if he wanted to keep it going.

I actually haven't heard anything about Sauer either. I would have thought that he would've signed with the Avs by now, but I haven't heard anything.
