Anders Lee to Harvard?

Rumors are flying today (and now officially confirmed by Heisenberg and now it has been taken off of Heisenberg's site) that Anders Lee (6'2'' 188lbs) has committed to Harvard for 2009. Anders is a junior forward for Edina and plays on the same line as Marshall Everson. He is a 2 sport star and while not scoring goals on the ice, he is throwing TDs for Edina's football team.

He had a line of 32-22-54 in 31 games, good for 3rd on the team after Everson (Harvard) and Budish (Minnesota). Ironically, this was Edina's huge line and arguably, the best line in the state.

Like Everson, he is rated a B prospect by Central Scouting. Unlike Everson who received Honorable Mention, as did Budish, Lee was selected as 1st Team All-State and is a very likely finalist and potential winner of Minnesota's Mr. Hockey award next year.

Harvard is really following up its 2008 recruitng with a vengeance. Everson, Grenier, and Lee - 3 of the most highly regarded forwards out of Minnestoa. Could it be the next line of fire?

Don't know if this has been falsely reported or it's a done deal, but not official yet....but as soon as I hear, I will update. This would be a great win for Harvard if true.

Catholic Memorial Captain to Don Crimson

It's official. Peter Starrett, a defenseman at Catholic Memorial, has decided to join the Crimson, spurning offers from crosstown rivals BC and BU, who both wanted Starrett to play a year of junior hockey.

Starrett is listed at 6'3'' 195 which sounds like he has to continue to grow into that frame.

He's got a 4-15-19 line in 17 gmaes thus far.

With Christian, McCafferty, Tallet, Huxley, Biega, and Morin returning....and Grimshaw and Starrett arriving (only MacDonald departs), there will be some serious competition on the blue line in Cambridge next season. This is as good a group of defenseman that Harvard has had in quite some time.
