USHL Protected Lists

Dplaya over at the HIW Blog has a nice breakdown of UW recruits and Wisconsin kids who have made the protected lists of various USHL teams, according to the Unofficial USHL Blog.

The only difference I see w/ Dplaya's breakdown is Frankie Simonelli is listed as dropped by the Cedar Rapids Roughriders. This makes sense since Frankie was recently offered a spot in the US NTDP for next year, and will likely play for them in 2009/2010 as well, before beginning his career at Wisconsin.

By my count, there are 10 Badger recruits who will be playing in the USHL next season. I'm pretty sure Tyler Lapic is headed back to his high school in Minnesota, but if not that makes 11.
