Earlier today one of the top American 16 year-old hockey players, Hudson Fasching, tweeted this:

Fasching is a Burnsville native who currently plays for the United States National Team Development Program's under-17 team in Ann Arbor. Before that, he spent two seasons at Apple Valley playing with future Minnesota recruit AJ Michaelson. The 6'3", 190 lb forward has six points (2 goals - 4 assists) in 14 USHL games (the USNTDP U-17 team schedule is a mixture of international tournaments and USHL games).

Besides being one of the most coveted 1995-born hockey players (he has been projected to be a first-round pick in 2013), Hudson has had a unique family life which was the subject of an ESPN feature. Both of his siblings have a rare cell disorder which left unable to walk or talk and made the decision to leave Apple Valley that much harder.

Although it remains to be seen which year Fasching will begin at Minnesota, it is more than likely that he will come in 2013. Regardless he is the jewel-piece of a talented 1995-born Gophers recruiting class which includes Gabe Guertler, Taylor Cammarata, Lou Nanne and more.
