Wisconsin Recruiting: Nice Little Friday Night

Quick little story for you. I love it when media relations people e-mail us with information. So needless to say I was excited when Muskegon's Christopher Heimerman sent me a note to alert me of Brendan Woods big night. Except for the fact that it was at 4:40 this morning. When your e-mail is hooked up for your phone, that's not a fun time to wake up. Just giving you a hard time Christopher, keep it coming.

That said, lets get into a quick recap of our committed recruits from last night. I won't get into all of them but some had pretty nice Friday nights.

Brendan Woods-Muskegon (USHL)
I was semi-concerned when Woods didn't do much in the pre-season and then was held off the score sheet in the season opener vs Sioux Falls. Consider my concerns put to rest for now. Woods bounced back with back to back two point games including a two goal effort last night against Sioux City.

Joel Rumpel-Penticton (BCHL)
Rumpel has picked up right where he left off last season and had another solid performance last night. Rumpel was named the third star and stopped 23 of 25 shots in route to a 3-2 OT victory.

Corbin McGuire-Fargo (USHL)
McGuire is making that tough transition from prep hockey to junior hockey and doing so as a high school junior. After limited action in his first two games, as well as a healthy scratch on opening night, McGuire had a nice Friday night notching his first USHL goal and putting 4 shots on goal.

Tyler Lapic-Chicago (USHL)
Lapic's had a pretty mediocre season in the USHL last year and has already been traded twice in his career. He may have found a home in Chicago. Last night the New Prague forward notched a pair of helpers in a 5-2 win. He now has 4 assists in 5 games this season.
