    Union Hockey Offseason Thread - That was fun...

    An amazing season has drawn to a close, so the offseason is here.

    Post any offseason news and notes here.... only 6 (long?) months until the puck is dropped at Messa again.

    Here's what some of Union's 2012-2013 schedule might look like

    Based on RPI's previously announced schedule, here's what some of Union's might look like. There's likely several OOC games not listed that aren't known yet.

    11/2 – at RPI
    11/3 – vs RPI
    11/9 – at Harvard
    11/10 – at Dartmouth
    11/23 – vs Penn State (Schott reported on this possible two game series in December)
    11/24 – vs Penn State
    11/30 – vs Quinnipiac
    12/1 - vs Princeton
    12/7 – at Brown
    12/8 – at Yale
    TBD late December - play in Catamount Cup @ Vermont
    1/11 – at Princeton
    1/12 – at Quinnipiac
    1/18 – vs Cornell
    1/19 – vs Colgate
    1/26 – RPI (non-league, possibly at Times Union Center as per Schott)
    2/1 – vs Dartmouth
    2/2 – vs Harvard
    2/8 – at Clarkson
    2/9 – at St. Lawrence
    2/15 – vs Yale
    2/16 – vs Brown
    2/22 – at Colgate
    2/23 – at Cornell
    3/1 – vs St. Lawrence
    3/2 – vs Clarkson
    You won't be playing 2/2 vs. Harvard, given that 2/4 is one of the days of the Beanpot. That game will likely be moved.
    It was an honor to present your colors, RPI. Let's Go 'TUTE!

    Looks like plenty of OOC games left to schedule. So far as Zajac is concerned, good luck to him. I assume an ATO means no pay?

    Correct.

    Under the agreement, the player shall receive no salary, bonus (of any kind) or any other form of compensation. He does not count against the cap.

    Just was thinking... it would be pretty fun if Kinkaid started in goal this weekend and Zajac played as well.

    Does anyone know what recruiting is looking like for next year? Are there any signals that it is picking up? Any 6'5" forwards? Hope this year makes recruiting easier and more productive. Going to be hard to replace the leadership.

    I think you're referring to Tim Boyle, younger brother of NYR Brian Boyle. Gostisbehere is also in the top 200 but of course we already have him, for the time being or at least until he puts on another 25 lbs. or so.

    It was a great night. The place was packed. A fitting end to a remarkable season.

    Now the hockey withdrawal will begin. . .

    I thought Jeremy Walsh's remarks were the highlight of the evening. He spoke sincerely and passionately for about 10 minutes on the program, the college and all those who had helped him to get his degree and to grow as a person and a hockey player. A great young man.
