Recruiting Trail: INCH's 2003 All-Name Team

2003 INCH Recruiting Rankings
Sept. 3: Top Forwards
Sept. 4: Top Defensemen & Goalies
Sept. 5: Top Classes

We've told you who in this year's freshman class will make an impact on the ice. But who, just by their name appearing in a box score, will bring a smile to our faces? Who is prepared to carry the torch previously held by the likes of Bryce Cockburn, Scooter Smith and Mike Funk?

Make no mistake, a high standard has been set. But we think the members of INCH's 2003 Recruiting All-Name Team might just have the stuff to carry on that legacy. You'll find their names, with comments, below.



School, Pos.

Obi Aduba

Massachusetts, F

La, la, la, la life goes on.

Brett Arcand-Kootenay

Alaska Anchorage, F

Turned down a major junior offer from the Kelowna Rockets because he refused to change his name to “Arcand-Kelowna.”

Barnabas Birkeland

Lake Superior State, D

Shouldn't this guy be chasing a white whale around the North Atlantic?

Scott Champagne

Mercyhurst, F

Teammates won't visit Scott's dorm with their girlfriends in tow because, as we all know, there's no sex in the Champagne Room.

Justin Chwedoruk and
Alex Nikiforuk

Nebraska-Omaha, F

Didja ever wonder what it would be like if Harry Caray called hockey games?

Chris Cross

Clarkson, F

Makes you wanna ...

Peter Ferraro

Sacred Heart, F

No, I don't have a twin brother, and we don't go to Maine.

Giovanni Flamminio

Ferris State, D

You haven't lived until you've visited the Little Italy section of Big Rapids. So what if it consists of two houses and a Pizza Hut?

Jim Gehring

Mercyhurst, F

No, he’s not Karl’s brother. It’s not spelled “Goehring,” and he’s taller than 5-foot-6.

Grant Goeckner-Zoeller

Princeton, F

He had no trouble getting into Princeton. He got 500 points for spelling his name right on the SATs instead of the usual 200.

Nino Musitelli

Miami, F

On his recruiting trip, what are the chances Enrico Blasi took him to an Italian place?

Pierre-Luc O'Brien

Sacred Heart, F

He's rude and likes Jerry Lewis, but he'll also drink you under the table.

Adam Pineault

Boston College, F

We prefer a Chardonnay, but a good Pineault-Grigio is nice, too.

Dylan Row

Brown, D

Isn’t this guy one of the star’s of the FOX series “OC”?

Dinos Stamoulis

Providence, D

When they signed Dinos, the Friars got Pebbles and Bam Bam as well.

Jake Taylor

Minnesota, D

"We've got uniforms and everything."

Jason Tejchma

UMass Lowell, F

The heir to the Nintendo Tejchma Bowl fortune.
