New Commitments

I'm a little backed up on these.

Hopkins high school star forward Mike Fink committed to North Dakota. Fink said he love Englestad Arena and the facilities that they have for players. He also felt very connected to the coaches at UND. He'll probably be playing for the NTDP next season, or in Waterloo, in the USHL.

Tri-City forward Alex Hudson committed to Nebraska-Omaha for 2008. Last season, Hudson left Tri-City, because he was struggling to gain college eligibility and was going to sign with Medicine Hat of the WHL, but apparently never played a game with the Tigers. He came back to Tri-City and has played well with the Storm.

Lake Superior got a commitment from the well-traveled Brian Mahoney-Wilson. He may split time with sophomore Pat Inglis next season.

Alaska-Anchorage got their first commitment for 2009. Anchorage was the last WCHA team to add a player for 2008 or 2009. Imagine being behind the times because you're only recruiting players 15 months before they step on campus. Anyway, that player is Gustav Bengston of the Northwest Regulators.

During yesterday's USHL Draft, I said I didn't know who the Northwest Regulators were. According to their website headline, they are the #1 AAA Major Hockey Program in Utah. Though competition is sparse. Also, they are apparently big fans of Nate Dogg and Warren G.

Bengston is originally from Stockholm, Sweden. In 34 games, he had 19 goals and 17 assists.
