Here, then, is a quick glimpse into Wildcat recruits. There are currently no new names to announce, but this is the current state of the incoming class of NMU athletes.
Class of 2007
Tyler Gron - RC - Spruce Grove (AJHL)
(60 GP-26 G-24 A-106 PIM)
Now in the playoffs, the Steelers have glided through to the finals, winning a pair of best-of-seven series, 4-1 and 4-0. In the nine games, Fernandez has four assists and 37 PIM.
(58 GP-18 G-30 A-64 PIM)
(32 GP-5 G-23 A-125 PIM)
$ Jared Brown - W - Lincoln (USHL)
(50 GP- 10 G-17 A-75 PIM)
Billy Smith - LW - Alaska Anchorage (Transfer)
(49 GP-27 G-28 A-76 PIM)
This is one prospect that Marquette-area residents seem to be particularly interested in. He hasn't yet signed, though, and therefore, coach Kyle can't actually say anything about him (Although they have asked on several occasions).
Ian Keserich - G - Tri-City (USHL)
(40 GP-22 W-11 L-5 OTL-2.53 GAA-.903 SV%)
The last I heard, however, it looked as though Keserich may not end up at Northern after all. This may have something to do with Brian Stewart's play late in the season, maybe not. The fact of the matter is that Keserich is not yet signed and may not be in Marquette come fall.
(50 GP-25 W-23 L-1 T-3.52 GAA-.896 SV%)
During the playoffs, Janzen went 3-4 with a 3.41 GAA as his Chiefs lost 4-3 in a best-of-seven series against the Burnaby Express.
Class of 2008
Andrew Cherniwchan - RW - Drayton Valley (AJHL)*
(60 GP-36 G-17 A-236 PIM)
(56 GP-10 G-34 A-117 PIM)
(45 GP-11 G-10 A-38 PIM)
Charlie Smith - C - Detroit Belle Tire*
(18 GP-3 G-7 A-2 PIM)
Kory Kaunisto - C - Traverse City (NAHL)*
$-Has already signed a National Letter of Intent
