St. Cloud State freshman class taking shape

With the 2007-08 season less than three months away, most freshmen classes around the nation are pretty much set. St. Cloud State still has a few things up in the air though, according to a report in the St. Cloud Times.

Forwards Aaron Marvin, Tony Mosey, Nick Oslund, Garrett Roe and Brian Volpei, defenseman Brett Barta, and goalie Dan Dunn will all be members of the Huskies this fall.

Luca Cunti, a forward from Dubendorf, Switzerland and a third-round by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, hopes to be able to join the Huskies this fall as well, but must get past the NCAA Clearinghouse first. If he is not deemed to be eligible this fall, he will play with fellow SCSU recruit Drew LeBlanc for the Chicago Steel in the USHL this year.

Defenseman Nic Rioux will probably be on campus this fall, but may have to sit out the upcoming season depending upon his appeal to the NCAA of his enrollment.

Former Minnesota forward Brent Borgen, who was able to practice with SCSU last season but was unable to compete in games because of his transfer from the Golden Gophers to the Huskies, will also join SCSU this fall.
