Cedar Rapids (USHL), 55 GP, 35-31-66, 79 PIM; Playoffs: 5 GP, 1-0-1, 0 PIM

Scouting Comments:
"A left wing/center who played in the USHL and is going to Vermont. Good size, 5-11 to 6-feet, 195/190 pounds, and a good skill level. Skates well and a good, solid, all-around 2-way player with offensive ability" ... Colton [and Lohin] are guys you get now so you aren't bidding for them in three years as NCAA free agents. -- Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray.

Seventh Round, 208th Overall, C Ryan Lohin

Name: Ryan Lohin
Position: Center
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 190 lbs.
Shoots: Left
Birthdate: 26 JUN 96
Club: UMass-Lowell (HEAST)

Madison (USHL), 48 GP, 16-23-39, 50 PIM
Waterloo (USHL), 14 GP, 7-11-18, 4 PIM; Playoffs: 9 GP, 1-4-5, 16 PIM

Scouting Comments:
"Ryan Lohin is very similar to Ross Colton. He’s a 96-born, both are 96-born guys that have gone through the draft a couple of times. Both came on this year to have real strong seasons in the USHL. Both are going off to college, he’s going to Lowell, and are going to be – from what we understand – big parts of both their college teams. Again, a 2-way guy with offensive skill. Not real big, 6-foot tall, 190 pounds, good puck skills, some offensive ability if you look at his numbers in the USHL he was over a point a game and these are the kind of guys that if you don’t take these guys as 19-year-olds as they are late-bloomers, then you’re chasing them for the next three years as free agents in college hockey, so both guys impressed us enough that we wanted to draft them." -- Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray

NCAA Game Night: 3-26-16

No. 12 Boston University Terriers 2 vs. No. 7 Denver Pioneers 7
NCAA West Regional Semifinal (St. Paul, MN)

D John MacLeod, BU: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
Season totals: 26 GP, 1-1-2, -4, 24 PIM
2014-2015 totals: 37 GP, 2-7-9, +19, 58 PIM

Denver got up 6-0 on BU before the Terriers got on the board, but by then it was way too late. MacLeod got in the lineup, which was a plus, but played sparingly. His sophomore season concludes in the national tournament. MacLeod’s latter part of the season was marred with healthy scratches and limited play. Hopefully his junior year has the former Lightning second rounder in a more prominent role.

NCAA Game Night: 3-19-16

Ferris State Bulldogs 2 vs No. 15 Minnesota State Mavericks 1
WCHA Broadmoor Trophy Championship (Grand Rapids, MI)

W Jimmy Mullin, MSU: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season totals: 31 GP, 2-8-10, -1, 8 PIM
2013-2014 totals (Miami): 19 GP, 1-6-7, 23 PIM

Ferris State held the Mavs to just 14 shots while winning the WCHA championship. Down 2-1 entering the third period, Minnesota State managed just one shot on net. MSU is not projected to make the Field of 16 to get to the Frozen Four in Tampa, but Boston University (MacLeod) is. If the Mavs don't make it in, Mullin's college career is over. It's possible he could get a tryout contract with Syracuse to end the year, but he hasn't produced enough to be considered a lock for a pro contract.
