Trevor Olson Commits To UND

UND has received a verbal commitment from a 6-foot-2 power forward from Duluth.

Trevor Olson, who played at Duluth East and is now with Sioux City in the USHL, is expected to come to UND in the fall of 2014.

In his first season in the USHL, Olson tallied 16 points in 31 games for Green Bay before Sioux City coach Brett Larson (of Duluth) traded for him. Since joining Sioux City, Olson has 30 points in 30 games.

“He’s a big power forward,” Larson said. “He brings a physical element to the game, but he can also make plays. He’s kind of like a pro-style power forward.”

Larson said that most schools didn’t start recruiting Olson until this year as he sustained an injury during his senior year of high school.

“He was recruited by the top schools in the country,” Larson said. “So, North Dakota did a good job.”

Olson said he chose UND over Minnesota-Duluth, St. Cloud State and UMass-Lowell.

    Ok, this is good news. My question is when can we expect to see the next Tony Hrkac? I’ll even take a TJ Oshie……does UND have a star coming in for 2013-2014?

    Rocco is a star people….3 inches taller and he’s a top 5 pick no questions. He needs help but expect 50 plus a year for however many years he stays and I think he’s a it who sticks around

      I agree. If folks can’t appreciate what Rocco brings to the rink everyday then they just don’t get it.

        Agreed, Rocco’s legit. Their 2013-2014 incoming class is also legit. Although we’re losing some great players…don’t think for a minute we won’t compete next year.

    I’m just wondering, this kid was brought in very late. Are we expecting someone else that wasn’t scheduled to go; leave us? Hope it’s not Rocco….but every time we bring someone in late there is usually an unexpected casualty on next year’s roster. Could be he’s just too good to pass up and we need to make room…but….who knows.

      The article states that he ‘is expected to come to UND in the fall of 2014.’ he should be here next fall, not this coming fall.

      While Mr Grimaldi certainly has many options, he’s also smart enough to know when to move on. Another year honing his finishing skills and finding his scoring touch will pay big dividends…

    I only care about a commitment when they call their names at the Ralph. Otherwise, I don’t need to waste the time.

    I am more concerned about bringing in a goalie that can get it done consistently. With Saunders a senior and Goth inconsistent, we need an Eddie who will stick with the program.
