According to this article, Lucas Lessio has signed with the St. Michael's Buzzers for the upcoming season. That would be the same program that has produced Drew Cogs, Louie Caporusso, and Brandon Burlon (as well as Red Wing prospect Brendan Smith).
Niagara GM Dave Brown says that his gut feeling is that Lessio will still end up playing for the Ice Dogs, but he also seems like he kind of has the Baghdad Bob thing going.
Update: Lessio took to the ice in his first game for St. Mike's since signing with them (he played a game last week as well and scored) and had a pair of goals and an assist in an 5-4 overtime loss. Bob Miller cited some reports that he basically put the team on his back. He also mentioned that while there's nothing definite, "things look positive" for Michigan. Awww yeah.
MGoBlue had an interview with JMFJ today. He recently participated in the US Olympic Camp along with Mike Komisarek. Nice to see that he's still working toward getting a degree from U of M.
We're only 5 weeks away, folks!!
