UMD recruit Oberg bumped up to 2007-08

According to this release on UMD's official website, the Bulldogs will bring defenseman Evan Oberg to their program this fall. Oberg was originally slated to become a Bulldog in the fall of 2008.

Last season, Oberg had nine goals and 14 assists in 52 games while playing for Camrose in the AJHL. UMD has landed several players from the Camrose program over the years, including former standout Mason Raymond, and current players Matt McKnight, MacGregor Sharp, and Logan Gorsalitz.

Oberg turned 19-years-old this past February.

From the release:

"Evan is just a real solid all-around defenseman," said head coach Scott Sandelin, who will begin his eighth season behind the Bulldog bench this fall. "He's got some terrific offensive skills, knows how to handle the puck, and see the ice well. His addition now gives us eight defensemen and a much-needed lefthanded shot from the point."
