Looking ahead
2014 recruit JJ Piccinich scored goals in each of Youngstown’s first two regular-season games, a 9-3 loss to the NTDP U18s and a 7-6 loss to the NTDP U17s.  Fellow 2014 recruit Jack Eichel scored a goal and added two helpers for the U18s’ win.

2016 recruit Clayton Keller has made the prep team roster at Midwest powerhouse Shattuck St. Mary’s, one of only two 10th graders on SSM’s top-level squad. The other is Minnesota 2016 recruit Ryan Lindgren. SSM prep began its Upper Midwest High School Elite League season this weekend. Keller scored a goal in first game, a 5-2 SSM win against Team SW, earning kudos for his efforts tweeted by the Western Hockey Blog’s Chris Dilks. Keller contributed an assist in Saturday’s 6-0 win against Team NW.
