بيع وشراء الاسهم عن طريق الانترنت الراجحي “We don’t lose all that much from last year’s squad,” Cronin said. “If you look at our top scorers from last season, (forward Kyle) Kraemer is really all we’re losing. Again, we bring in a big class, but it serves its purpose in fulfilling roles this team needs.”

At just 17 old, Oleskiak already has some considerable accomplishments in his career. Last season, the Toronto native tallied 14 points with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League (USHL).

Forward Mitch MacMillan is coming off a career year with the British Columbia Hockey League’s (BCHL) Alberni Valley Bulldogs in which he set the team record with 61 goals and 93 points. The Penticton, British Columbia, native was also named the Coastal Conference MVP and was voted to the BCHL All-Star Team.

“Clay’s a professional kid,” O’Connell said of the Brandon, Fla., native. “He’s played a lot of games over the last few years even though he’s a relatively young kid. Hopefully he’ll gain some minutes and when there’s a chance, make an impact.”

The 10 new recruits look to improve a Husky squad that went 16-16-2 last season and missed the Hockey East playoffs for the first time since 2005-06, Cronin’s first season behind the bench.
