Two forwards from the Lincoln Stars of the U.S. Hockey League could be coming to Denver.
Forward Jason Gregoire, who turns 18 this month, has orally committed to the Pioneers, but the native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, might defer his scholarship to begin in 2008. Gregoire has 12 points (six goals) in seven games, with a plus-10 rating. An ankle injury interrupted his rookie junior-A season.
Teammate Dan Comrie, cousin of former DU All-American Paul Comrie and NHL forward Mike Comrie, is back playing hockey and looking to sign with DU after concussions put his career in doubt three years ago after he committed to the Pioneers.
Comrie, who will be 21 in August, has 17 points (eight goals) in 18 games and has played in only 21 games since the beginning of 2003-04.
Comrie, from San Diego, originally was slated to join DU in 2004, along with current juniors Geoff Paukovich, Andrew Thomas and Peter Mannino.
