    Hawkey was expected when he committed to be the guy between the pipes last season until his injury. It was expected that Gillies was leaving after his junior season so when recruited, that was the plan but Ellis was ready to take the job after Hawkey's knee injury

    Good get for the Friars as 2000-born center Cam Hillis verbally commits. Potential struggle with the OHL for his services coming for Leaman.

    He was a 2nd round OHL pick as well. Definitely should be a struggle to get him to college.

    Why is that? NCAA has proven over past several years to be by far the best development path. NHL teams are loaded on ice, on bench and in front office with NCAA guys. With USHL producing at its current clip you would have to be crazy to go up there

    This trend will only strengthen over next several years. If from Ontario, fine. US kid, shouldn't even be an after thought

    Of course time will tell but basically I agree with you though Hillis is an Ontario kid. Check the Lowell thread for College hockey writers answer to same issue. Pretty accurate. To an extent somewhat similar to Jankowski except Hillis is a little more advanced as a junior in High school. One other of his points was kid has to this point angled toward an ncaa option. Might add to that while no names Divver said 5 schools beside PC in on him. 3 were Ivy (1B10, one other HEA)

    I don't know what changed up at UNH but there was a major drop-off after I graduated with Borek as the assistant. Makes you wonder...

    Re: Providence College on the road to Chicago

    I went to order tickets earlier today and noticed the schedule still lists all home games with a start time of TBA. Any idea what's going on? The HEA website shows PC and Maine home games with TBA for a start time. Are the Friars thinking about an earlier start so the game will be over by the time the Exodus to Bradley's begins?
    I hope they figure it out before October 2.

    Looking forward to Tournament ModeŽ 2017! In Chicago...? I would rather be in Tampa!

    The game time has been set for the Sunday, October 2nd exhibition game against Acadia: 4 p.m. EDT.

    Now that the Big East basketball schedule has been released, maybe we'll start to see the home game times for the 2016-17 season.

    As a PC Alum, it was thrilling to see Providence College ranked 1st in the Regional University - North category in the 2017 US News & World Reports College Rankings. #GoFriars!

    In todays ProJo there is a small story about Holy Cross being invited to join Hockey East as Notre Dame exits, they would be required to play their home games in downtown Worchester and have 2 games scheduled there this year. One of those games is against PC on October 15th

    RIP Dick Ernst who played at PC in the 50s. Better known for his lifetime of coaching high school kids.

    I'm sorry to read of his passing. Wishing his family all the best. He was a character for sure.

    The game on Sunday is general admission and free.

    No tickets here yet either. Free t-shirts for the Miami game next Friday!
