2020 NCAA Free Agents

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year where undrafted college prospects start getting signed by big clubs, like Kuffner and Hirose last year.
Couple names that jump out at me:

  • Jordan Kawaguchi: Plays for North Dakota. Similar to Hirose, he's a smallish Asian guy. 5'9" 180lbs, turns 23 in May. Has the 2nd most points in the NCAA and is 3rd in scoring rate with 41 pts in 27 games played. Plays center and shoots left. If GMs are willing to look past his size this is probs a top guy I would think.
  • Julius Mattila: Finnish guy playing for Boston College. 5'11" 180lbs, turns 23 in October. 9th in NCAA scoring with 33 points in 25 games played. Plays center and shoots left.
  • Marc Michaelis: Here's an interesting one. Turns 25 this summer, but he's from MANNHEIM Germany. He's been pretty dominant throughout his NCAA career with Minnesota State, but never got drafted for some reason. 5'11" 190lbs. Plays LW and C and shoots left. Only trouble is he'll be already 25 soon.
  • Patrick Khodorenko: Here's a player in the Wings back yard with Michigan State. 6'0" 200lb center who turns 22 this summer. Shoots left. 31 pts in 28 games. This guy is also the youngest on my list and yet also the most filled out physically.
  • Mike Lee: Dman playing for Sacred Heart. 6 ft 190lbs, turns 24 in April. Impressive 31 pts in 27 games as a Dman.
  • Johnny Walker: (great name) plays for Arizona State and turns 24 in august. Point per game with 32 in 32 but has a lot of goals with 17. 6'1" 185 lbs. Right handed right wing (intriguing)

Anyway I don't much about the NCAA. Spent less than an hour researching. Maybe someone else can grow my list here.

This is the dumbest thing Ive ever read and none of those players will amount to anything. Not to mention, not one of them play in the NCAA. Take your meds schizo.

Anyway

Here's an article I just found: https://thehockeynews.com/news/article/future-watch-10-ncaa-freshmen-having-great-starts-to-their-college-careers

Quote

Braeden Tuck, RW, 21 (Sacred Heart/undrafted)
An older freshman at 21, Tuck has played at just under a point-per-game average all season and currently sits with 26 points in 28 games. Tuck’s stat line looks funny with four goals and 22 assists (the most of any freshmen), but he was named Atlantic Hockey’s rookie of the month in November with 11 points, so his impact reaches beyond putting pucks in the net. Sacred Heart has a stacked team with Mike Lee, Jason Cotton, Matt Tuggnutt and Austin Mcillmurray, but Tuck has been a versatile two-way forward who can kill penalties and keep up with his high-paced teammates.

Zachary Uens, D, 18 (Merrimack/undrafted)
Uens was passed over at the 2019 draft but that’s not likely to be repeated in 2020. The Vegas Golden Knights brought Uens to development camp following his graduation from Ontario Jr. A and since then, Uens has gone on to be the top-scoring under-19 defenseman in the NCAA with 16 points in 27 games. He’s not afraid to take risks to make plays happen and as he adjusts to the older competition, he has found a way to step up his game on a weekly basis. A power-play specialist, Uens is a high-end skater with the tools to be a good two-way bottom-pairing defenseman, but making sure he shows that every night is the biggest challenge. Still, he’s not going undrafted this time around.

Pronman released an article with  a list of potential target for teams from ncaa and europe including some guys who might be free agents if they dont sign with their nhl teams

#1 is https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/300906/scott-perunovich

considering we suck at d and he’d be a free asset anyways we should target him hard along with some other guys 

#6 https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/272225/josh-dunne 

free agent now and still 21 

#22 https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/199949/wade-allison

liked him on that draft year and apparently dealt with injuries , gonna be 23 maybe worth a risk if flyers dont sign him ... hes playing in michigan so im sure hes been watched

Anyways there’s like 30 guys on the list if ppl want me to list them i can

Is Pac-12 any good?

dunno, just heard the name being tossed around a little with more than a few NHL teams possibly Detroit interested.

...then again, could all just be throwing names around. Anyhow, like the poster says, it gives some things to talk about.
