    This can't be correct that both Yale and Brown games are at home???

    I'm guessing that the RPI away game will be in early December before exams. There doesn't appear to be a place for the game in either January or February unless it is a Tuesday night game. Harvard put the kibosh on playing two games either between or before the Beanpot.

    Let's hope he brings his new found scoring prowess to Cambridge next fall.

    Congrats to Joey Bertagna '73 on his election to the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame. I remember watching as a kid a game at Brown where Joe literally stole two points for us by making save after great save. He was terrific. We won 3-2 with Bill Corkery getting the winner. And believe it or not, Meehan still looks the same. Okay maybe a new coat of paint but...

    Re: Harvard Crimson 2016-2017

    Just got a notice from the Friends of Harvard Hockey that tomorrow's gathering with Teddy and Coach Stone will not include parking. Apparently the Boston Calling folks have hijacked the parking areas around the athletic complex so if you are planning to attend, you'll need to walk from the Square or perhaps park at the B-School. I wouldn't count on that alternative either.

    Re: Harvard Crimson 2016-2017

    So yesterday's alumni event with Teddy and Katey Stone was total fun. Chuckie Hughes and Allain Roy showed up along with a few other players including Giff Duffy who played when I was at Harvard. Giff reminded me of bus rides and sharing notes about opposing teams and players. Including the infamous Cornell game up at Ithaca where a certain part of the human anatomy was sent on to the ice prior to the start of the third period. And the headless chickens tied to the goalposts before Giff skated out for the start of the second period. Yeah, that was fun.

    We got an inside peek at Bright Landry including the facilities that have been upgraded since the renovations. More are planned that will increase training options for the players. Teddy talked about how important the facility upgrade has been for recruiting purposes and for preparation between weekends. The players practically live down there during the week. On Saturdays, the team convenes in a special video room where the coaches review the game tape from the night before and do some advance scouting on their opponent for that evening. They also have an app that allows them to see their individual shifts in three segments: Power Play, Penalty Kill and five on five. The information available to these kids is pretty amazing.

    The Crimson has had a 4-5 year run of great coverage. Hope it continues next year with Jake graduating.

    We almost certainly would have heard by now. I remember Teddy was outpsoken about liking that game for the experience it gave his team -- pro rink, big atmosphere, etc. So it seems like they'll give it another shot somewhere down the line. Would love to see a better turnout from the alum community when/if that happens

    TBD at RPI
    Thanks for posting... have 2/5/18 circled on my calendar. The Beanpot opener against BU will be the night game I believe (instead of that awful 5:00 start).

    Uptick in facilities in recent years has been huge part of team's success. Major impetus for culture turnaround and obviously huge in recruiting. If you ever get a chance to walk in the vistors' locker room, the contrast will jump out at you.

    Video room also doubles as the press conference room, which means that they no longer walk the media by the trainers' room or locker room after the game. Much better for player + competitive privacy.

    It will actually be on 9 January; RPI just announced. And barring any exhibition games, your schedule is complete.
    It was an honor to present your colors, RPI. Let's Go 'TUTE!

    What he is doing for his brother will show up in his life in ways he can't begin to imagine. Kudos to him for sticking around and being there for his parents to care for Teddy.

    That said, the last paragraph was somewhat troubling in that he seems to think he will only be around for a couple of seasons, then jump ship. I know players today think this is the quickest route to the NHL but if he looks at what Vesey and last year's class did to stay and compete, it can still lead to an NHL career. Here's hoping he changes his mind and builds a nice resume at B-L.

    That seems like an awful unjust reading of his quote.

    Beyond Dexter, Rathbone will take it one step at a time once he gets to Harvard.

    “I’ll make that decision when it comes with whatever team drafts me,” he said. “My dream has been to play in the NHL, so I think there’s no doubt that it’s an incredible opportunity. If that means going (to Harvard) for two years and then coming back to get a degree, or going for three or four years, then so be it. But I’ll make that decision when it comes time.”
    He literally mentions every option but being a one and done, so to say he's only looking to jump ship after a couple of seasons when he mentions being here for three or four in the same sentence is harsh to me.

    He mentions the option of leaving after two seasons first which tells me that is foremost on his mind. He doesn't hide it to his credit. Sorry if you think I'm being harsh but I don't want us to become a BU type NHL farm team and his coming out and saying this before he steps foot on campus is bad optics. This won't sit well with Admissions. I don't fault him for wanting to pursue an NHL career. He should chase his dream. But to make reference to leaving after two seasons (and yeah I saw the other option) before he takes one shift at B-L just doesn't sit well with me. Even though I know it is well within his right to do it.

    I don't know how else you'd mention it? Outside of counting down instead, saying two or three or four is the natural progression. This is a kid who turned down the USHL to be with his brother, I highly doubt he's going to leave Cambridge too soon unless someone offers him a starting NHL role.

    Maybe he should see if he can compete at the college level first. Cape cod whalers. Right on😂
