Kuechly and the Lott and other links

Kuechly was one of many ACCers named to the Lott list. I think Kuechly was overlooked a bit last year, but this year should benefit come awards time as most voters will now know his name.

Carolyn Swords was drafted 15th overall by the Chicago Sky. Stephanie Murphy is hoping for a chance with an WNBA club.

BC recruit Greyson Lambert wants to play in a pro style offense.

Phil Samuelsson decided to sign with the Penguins and forgo his final years of eligibility. There is some good news though. Brian Dumoulin and Chris Kreider will return.

Samuelsson's early departure is a real surprise in that he is more in need of development than any of the other regular players, in my view. Dumoulin is a much more polished and complete defenseman, and a better skater. Samuelsson had a bit more size (but rarely remembered to use it). Perhaps that's what appeals to the Penguins (in addition to his genes). I predict a minimum of two years of AHL development from Phil before he sees any NHL ice time.
