Not to spam my own stuff but as most of you know I'm writing about the prospects for In Lou We Trust. Using the Prospects - Devils & Otherwise tag you can see some of my post from this summer. I'll have a post up Tuesday about the Devils CHL prospects that are turning pro with quotes and opinions from the radio announcers and a blogger that covered them the past few years. I'll still be doing daily updates for all the games in this thread all year long.

Look forward to visiting this thread everyday Brian.  Has Loktianov been signed anywhere? He was more productive than JJ. Maybe (hopefully) this will be Jacobs year to show he belongs in nhl

Looking forward to your continued coverage. Is Jacobs definitely going to Michigan St. or is he going back to the USHL?

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Loktionov is still a UFA. He did have shoulder surgery after getting hurt at the World Hockey Championship this spring so maybe that has had some affect on his situation.

At the time of the draft it seemed like Sarnia (OHL) was a legitimate option for Jacobs  if he didn't follow through on his MSU committment. Another year in the USHL seemed really unlikely and still does. I haven't found anything about Jacobs going to Sarnia so it looks like he will be at MSU.

Think it's pretty clear he's playing for MSU

There we have it.

 

I guess I sort of underrated the Michigan St. program. I knew Ryan Miller went there, but the list of alumni is actually pretty impressive. Brind Amour, Krug, Horcoff, Keith, Booth, Anson Carter, Harding and many more.

I wonder if prospects ask Lou for advice on this?  I remember when Romano (when he was in Devs org) left college like mid year he went to Jr. club that drafted him. I wonder if Lou had anything to do with that?  Who do they consult? not an agent I hope?

They can't consult an agent otherwise they become ineligible for NCAA hockey.  They can retain an advisor.  I do believe that they talk to Lou, but ultimately it's up to them.  I think it's ultimately a good thing that Reid Boucher forwent Michigan State to go to Sarnia, for instance.

 

Romano did not leave college mid-year - he left after one year.

Wheat King @NHLDevils prospect John Quenneville (@jaquinder88) scores back to back hat tricks in Saturdays #BWK Training Camp scrimmages

 

Only intrasquad scrimmages, but good to see Quenneville dominating. Hopefully he can reach 1.2 ppg or something

To my knowledge, the Devils haven't released their training camp roster, but according to the Brandon Wheat Kings' website John Quenneville, Brandon Baddock, Ryan Rehill, Myles Bell and Damon Severson will be at Devils camp. It looks like Bell has recovered from his major injury.

Bell not under contract.  He can't go back to Jr? correct?

Gedig's at Flames prospects training camp. I guess the Devils let him go? http://flames.nhl.co...s.htm?id=729854

I thought the Devils had signed him to an AHL contract - I am not sure that means that he can't go to other prospect camps if he so chooses.

TG did tweet the Devils were going to sign Gedig to an AHL deal. He is from Western Canada so maybe he's there as a way to get in shape for Devils camp and get some experience against other prospects that he didn't see in the NCAA.
