Fantasy Summary

High energy, hard-working forward. Plays center and wing. Can play in all situations—limited fantasy upside.

October 2023 – Blaisdell, the University of New Hampshire Wildcats alternate captain, has one goal in three games, helping lead the Wildcats to a 4-1-0 to start the 2023-24 campaign. Known for his leadership qualities and work ethic, scoring a goal early in his senior season and matching his 2022-23 goal-scoring total is a positive sign in his final year at the NCAA level before he looks to turn pro after the 2023-24 season. Mark Henry


May 2023 – Although the hope was that a transfer to New Hampshire might enable Blaisdell to show more offensive upside, he was left with just 1 goal across 32 games. That was following a 40+ game goalless drought with North Dakota. A hard-working leader, he has a lot of positive traits but seems to be falling behind on the scoresheet. He still has potential as a depth option at the NHL level down the road. Seth Ditchfield


May 2022 – Blaisdell transferred from UND to the University of New Hampshire for the 2021-22 season. After a nasty 48 game goalless drought spanning across two seasons, the young center needed a change of scenery. Unfortunately, the move did not create much more opportunity for him as his role progressively reduced this season, recording just eight points in 25 games.  Blaisdell’s compete level remained high throughout his offensive sputters at the college level but this was not enough to translate success. An overactive motor at times led to Blaisdell seemingly doing too much and shifting away from the fundamentals that made him a BCHL stand-out. He has yet to sign an ELC with the Jets, if they desire to go that route with a crowded depth chart down the middle.  Justin Kaye 


March 2020 – Blaisdell is a hard working center that doesn’t let his 5-11, 185-pound frame deter him from going hard to the net. He was a sought after talent coming out of the BCHL, known for his grit and determination in pursuit of the puck. He’s not a flashy scorer, as you would attribute the majority of his goals to not be “pretty” by any stretch of the imagination, and he’s reliable in his defensive end. In his freshman season with the University of North Dakota, he hasn’t flashed much scoring ability, but he’s likely settling into the NCAA game. Jamie Zadow
