As the 2015-2016 college hockey season creeps up, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference is already making news. ISS Hockey, a scouting and information provider on hockey prospects, released a list of the top 30 incoming college freshmen Tuesday.
Of these 30, eight of them belong to the NCHC. One of Miami’s own, forward Jack Roslovic, checks in at No. 5. The freshman from the USHL totaled 15 goals and 52 points in his 59-game stint in the league.
Seven other NCHC freshmen made the list, and five belong to the defending NCHC regular season champions, University of North Dakota.
The most notable of these five is Brock Boeser. The forward from Waterloo USHL put up 35 goals and 33 assists in 57 games last year.
Forward Fredrik Olofsson represents University of Omaha at No. 22, and forward Troy Terry represents Denver University at No. 23.
The Hockey East Conference claims most of the list with 13 players. The Big 10 tied the NCHC for second with eight players, and the Eastern College Athletic Conference had one player make the list.
Miami’s season begins Oct. 3 when it hosts Western Ontario in a preseason game. The RedHawks, the NCHC playoff champions, travel to Grand Forks, North Dakota to face the regular season champion UND on Nov. 13.
