Ryan Chesley Named To Preseason All-Big Ten Honorable Mention List

Washington Capitals prospect Ryan Chesley has been named to the preseason All-Big Ten honorable mention list. 

Chesley is headed into his second season with the Minnesota Golden Gophers and is due for a bigger role on their blueline. He had 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 36 games last year.

The 2022 second-round pick joins Gopher teammates Jimmy Snuggerud, Bryce Brodzinski, Luke Mittelstadt, Justen Close and Mike Koster for Big Ten preseason honors.

    Encouraging to see this.

    Can’t have enough righthanded blueline prospects…hopefully Chesley outperforms to the upside as we could use someone coming a year or two after Iorio.

      Good early recognition for Chesley. Ultimately we need him to be pro in 1-2 years. TVR and Jensen on 3 year deals along with JC74. Iorio right on cusp of being ready and McIlrath on 2 way deal if need another righty. If Chesley has a good year I hope he turns pro but if it takes (or he decides) on a third year of college not terrible.

    anything that somehow hastens the departure of softer than butter Nick Jensen is ok in my book. Some RHDs who aren’t worthy of ripe nhl careers have really taken advantage of the dearth in this particular position.
    Adding Chesley and Cam Allen in the last 2 drafts bodes well for having a better balance on the right side. Right now you’ve got Carlson (way past his prime and can’t carry the puck at all), Jensen (loses pucks under stress), and TVR (steady but really not a core type of dman) and Edmundsen (one hard sneeze away from the IR) That is beyond pathetic.

    I don’t see the right nearly as weak. Old for sure. JC74 is clearly a big part of our success, even though some can’t see it (although it was on display when he went out). TVR and Jensen are both on good (but long contracts). Both are moveable if Iorio and/or Chesley gets ready. But until then, they are solid RD’s.
