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
