Holy Angels' forward Danny Mattson to UND

Holy Angels junior forward Danny Mattson has committed to North Dakota for the fall of 2009, according to Brad Schlossman's blog. He had 19 goals and 49 assists last year for the Stars. This summer, Mattson participated in the 2007 Under-18 Memorial of Ivan Hlinka as a member of Team USA. That team was selected based off of performances from the Select 17 Player Development Camp.

WCHA Blog's Take: Another great get for Dave Hakstol and Co. Depending upon when players come in due to early departures, UND now has five Twin Cities kids committed for the fall of 2009. Mattson joins fellow forwards Danny Kristo (Eden Prairie, now US-NTDP) and Mike Fink (Hopkins, now Waterloo in the USHL), along with defensemen Cory Fienhage (Eastview) and Joe Gleason (Edina).
