Last year the Force had two players with 50 or more points. Matt Leitner had 53 and Andy Taranto had 59 in the inaugural season. This year it is likely that the Force will have four players with 50+ points and three of them have been a steady fixture on the top line for the Force. Nate Condon has put up 21 more points in 6 less games this year. Chase Grant has 19 more points in 6 less games. Corey Leivermann has an astonishing 32 more points this year more than doubling his point total from last year.
The triple threat tandem of Grant, Condon and Leivermann has become one of the top lines in the USHL. Perhaps the scarier aspect for the future teams of the WCHA is that Grant and Leivermann are headed to the Mavericks of MSU-Mankato. Even scarier...Matt Leitner is also a Mankato recruit along with one of the newest Force additions, JP Burkemper. Three of the top four scorers on a top team in the USHL are Mankato recruits.
I would love to hear your comments!
