    Re: Union College: 2016-2017

    Union announces that Spencer Foo is giving up his senior year, but likely won't sign anywhere until the summer.

    https://www.unionathletics.com/news/...or-season.aspx

    After the year he had, it's hard to blame him for leaving. There isn't much doubt that Foo is ready for the next step. With Foo's brother coming in, I thought he might stay to play with him for a year. But it apparently isn't meant to be. It's obviously another huge blow to Union.

    I figured Foo was going to leave if given the chance. Good for him! And he wrote a nice little piece explaining his decision. Hard work on and off the ice brings good things, he deserves it. Congrats to him.
    As for the others potentially leaving... it would be a surprise to me, but you never know.

    Is there a list of our recruits for next year somewhere?
    Let's go Union !
    ECAC Regular season champion : 2010-11, 2011-12, 2013-14, 2016-17
    ECAC Tournament champion : 2012, 2013, 2014

    Commitment years can kind of be in flux, especially in a situation like this when players leave early. Someone could be brought in early, like Pontarelli was when Jooris left.

    Wow, what a great piece he wrote.. very heartfelt, and nice that the school released it. I don't remember any players (certainly at Union) who have done something like this in the past. Strikes me as a very classy act, clears the air and doesn't leave anyone hanging. He certainly didn't have to explain himself to anyone, as players who get 50+ points in college hockey are seldom expected to stay, and is really touching to this fan that he did so in such an appreciative & humble manner. I wish him nothing but the best and am sure he'll be successful in whatever endeavors he chooses to pursue. The excitement and passion he brought to the game will be missed but not forgotten.

    Vecchione will become a Flyer today. Should see some time with the big club.

    Vecks reunited with Ghost.. sounds like he got a good deal. Congrats!

    In related news, Vecks is Hobey Hat Trick with Aston-Reese and Denver D-man Will Butcher and Bennett is up for National COTY (auto after being named ECAC COTY so not a surprise). Really not sure what Vecks chances are.. his stats are nearly identical to A-R's and Butcher is best player on the #1 team in the country. Hope the bad ending to the season doesn't hurt him, as would be another first for the program.

    There is also rumor speculation on the MSU thread that Bennett & Leaman are in the running (or should be) for the coaching job there. The other very likely BIG opening will be at nearby U of M where is widely anticipated that Red Berenson will be retiring. Not sure if Bennett would get either of these positions, but he certainly has the resume to be in the running and they possibility that Nate would leave Providence would obviously open up a position there that could be attractive to Bennett since he played & coached there in the past. Would not be happy if he left, but totally understand that U is lower on the prestige and pay scale from the big name D-1 programs. We'll have to wait and see..

    Hopefully Vech plays tonight vs the Rangers.
    Would be a great way to start his career playing with Ghost at the Garden.
    Good luck to him as he starts his pro career and thank you for all of the great memories. My personal favorite is still his goal vs BC in the Semi's. His goal vs Minny was not bad either

    Vech plays his first pro game vs Devils
    Who would have thought that 3 ex Union stars would be playing in the same NHL game. Pretty cool how far this program has come.
