UMD Roster 2009-10

      The Minnesota Duluth Web site has a 26-man roster posted for 2009-10, listed below, also the Western College Hockey Web site (which had incoming Bulldog freshman defenseman Dylan Olsen ranked as the top rookie in the West), also lists UMD incoming freshman Mike Seidel.

       A few jersey number changes, for those keeping track, goalie Kenny Reiter 35 (from 1); forwards Travis Oleksuk 21 (from 13), Rob Bordson 19 (from 15) and Cody Danberg 20 (from 21); and defenseman Trent Palm 5 (from 54). Oleksuk’s dad, Bill, wore No. 25 for the Bulldogs from 1978-82.

Best of the West #24: Mike Seidel, Minnesota-Duluth

Mike Seidel, Forward, 5-10 180 lbs., Cedar Rapids(USHL)


Role he’ll likely play: The Bulldogs have added a lot of small, skilled players in their last two recruiting classes, but what Seidel gives UMD is some of the grit they’ve lost in the last couple outgoinging classes. UMD likes to crash the net and get tips and rebounds off of shots on goal. Seidel could some day be a replacement for MacGregor Sharp, who picked up a ton of goals in his senior season without ever moving too far away from the opposition’s net.

Why he is ranked here: Seidel is an older freshman that played three seasons in the USHL.. He was good his first two years, and then great in his final year, when he scored 74 points and finished among the league leaders in scorers. He may not have the same high-end talent of some other prospects, but he’ll likely be a solid four year contributor.

Why he’ll be great: Duluth has some very good playmakers should be able to work around the perimeter in the offensvie zone, and Seidel could be the guy to stand in front of the goalie and bang home any rebounds they create.

Why he might not: Seidel’s skating isn’t his biggest strength. He could struggle away from home on some of the league’s bigger rinks.

Contrived Rivals-style star ranking: Three and a half stars.

  1. It’s understandable that money can make us autonomous. But what to do if one doesn’t have cash? The one way only is to get the home loans or car loan.
