Wade Poplawski Update

Wade Poplawski (5' 11", 175), a 1986-born blueliner playing with the Winnipeg South Blues in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League is visiting ECACHL schools. Poplawski is currently the leading scorer among defenseman (13th overall) in the MJHL, with 11 goals and 31 assists in 32 games. Poplawski participlated in last year's MJHL All-Star game and is the reigning Defensive Player of the Month. Cornell's interest in Poplawski has been unconfirmed, though suspected, due to his continued development and solid academic reputation. According to the MJHL, Poplawski is known to be interested in Colgate, Quinnipiac, and RPI.

BRP's hoping the Big Red stay in the hunt for Poplawski. He appears to be a hard-working underdog who continues to surprise people.

Update (12/4): Poplawski was in Hamilton this past weekend visiting Colgate.
