Here's hoping he becomes a Flame - big, right shooting power forward who puts up points.

Northeastern's season is over (they won't be going to the National tournament), Zach Aston-Reese sweepstakes should begin now.

Elliotte Friedman @FriedgeHNIC
Northeastern eliminated in NCAA by Boston University. Talks can begin with Zach Aston-Reese. EDM, OTT, VAN among Canadian contenders...

Elliotte Friedman @FriedgeHNIC
@FriedgeHNIC believe PIT is among other teams making a push. Reese, who played net-front on pp, had 63 points in 38 games.

Elliotte Friedman‏ @FriedgeHNIC
John Stevens -- son of LA coach John Stevens -- will also get some traction.

Shocker. College UFA decides to sign with Chicago. I wonder if he would have went "the Vesey route" had he been drafted by Winnipeg.

Canucks could be signing college ufa dman tomorrow.

Rick Dhaliwal‏ @DhaliwalSports

Been told the #Canucks will announce the signing of a free agent defenseman tomorrow. Could be NCAA or overage junior.

If NCAA maybe Jimmy Schuld from St Cloud or Derek Pratt from Connecticut?

Matthew Sekeres @mattsekeres
#Canucks among final 4-5 for college free agent Zach Aston-Reese but he's from NYC and his father lives in Pittsburgh so long way from home.

Matthew Sekeres @mattsekeres
Aston-Reese at one point was looking for amateur tryout, suggesting he was eyeing teams near cap/contract limit. #CanucksOn1040

looks like NJ gets Kelleher

Jeff Cox @JeffCoxSports
Hearing UNH senior forward Tyler Kelleher is close to signing NHL contract with New Jersey Devils, a team long rumored to be interested.

Bob McKenzie gives an update:

http://www.tsn.ca/the-nhl-s-college-...egins-1.695343

Quote:
The most pressing order of business right now, though, is NHL teams competing to sign the U.S. college unrestricted free agents whose seasons are over.

The top prize in that regard is Northeastern graduating senior Zachary Aston-Reese, a 6-foot, 204-pound forward who had 31 goals and 63 points for the Huskies in 38 games this season. Pittsburgh, Edmonton, Vancouver, San Jose, Los Angeles and Detroit are among a very large group of NHL teams pursuing him, with a decision expected in the next day or so.

Minnesota State sophomore defenceman Daniel Brickley has decided to return to school for his junior year. He was perhaps the top blueliner drawing free-agent interest.

St. Lawrence graduating senior defenceman Gavin Bayreuther is sorting through his options before signing in the next day or two. Buffalo, Dallas, New Jersey and Colorado are among the teams with high levels of interest in Bayreuther.

Some of the other top college free agents – Mike Vecchione and Spencer Foo from Union College; Neal Pionk and Alex Iafallo from Minnesota-Duluth; Tyler Sheehy and Justin Kloos from Minnesota; and, Josh Healey from Ohio State – are still playing.

Union, Minnesota-Duluth and Minnesota are assured of NCAA tournament berths for games that will be played March 24-26, so those players won't be available to NHL teams until after that. Ohio State could still be in the NCAA field but will need things to fall its way in games this weekend.

It appears the Flames have made their first move of college free agency. Although it appears minor.

They have signed C Brian Morgan to an ATO with Adirondack (in addition to Tim Harrison). He was added to Adirondack's 2-man reserve list meaning he won't play unelss there is an injury, callup, etc.

Stats:

The guy really took advantage of his scholarship - finished a double major in finance and management with a minor in economics in 3 years and named to Hockey East All Academic team each year.

Are these still Flames moves if they sold off Adirondack?

The Adirondack sale isn't final until this offseason. The Flames still own and operate the team until then.

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie
It's a two-horse race -- BUF and DAL -- to sign college UFA D Gavin Bayreuther of SLU. Decision coming later tonight or tomorrow.

Good news everyone! Oilers and Canucks out on Aston-Reese

Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie
VAN/EDM amongst teams told they're out on college UFA F Zach Aston-Reese (Northeastern). Looks like PIT is odds-on favourite to land him.

College free agents are unlikely to be good contributors in the NHL, but at least the Flames' division rivals aren't getting a free prospect.

Looks like the Flames missed out on one:

Bucci Mane‏ @Buccigross
ICYMI, NHL FA Kiefer Sherwood returning to Miami University. Vegas/Ducks/Calgary/Caps all like him. Another year under Rico Blasi more will.
