This looks like a transitional class - still closer to Atlantic Hockey than Hockey East, which is not surprising given the decision to upgrade came long after teams began recruiting for 2013 (as an example of how NCAA hockey recruiting lead times have changed, most top teams have already wrapped up the majority of their 2014 classes and are focused on 2015 and beyond). The best players appear to be the goaltender, who played at a lower level but was dominant, and the forward from the BCHL. The program is still too reliant on the NAHL and the EJHL, which produce some Division 1 players, but a much smaller percentage than the USHL, BCHL and some of the other well-regarded Canadian Junior A leagues.
Berard received commitments from some younger players that show a lot of promise but rather than bring them in early and have them take their lumps, it looks like they've stuck to 2014 and 2015 enrollment dates so they can get tested by better competition. I'll bet several will be playing in the USHL next season and future classes will be weighted towards tougher junior leagues.
