    Bemidji State Beavers: 2016-17

    What to expect? Where will the offense come from? Will the defense be able to step up and keep it low scoring? Those seem to be the questions every year for the Beavers.

    WHAT THEY LOST

    BSU lost five players last year, four to graduation and Ruslan Pedan signing with Sochi in the KHL. Here is a look at those five and where they ranked in scoring.
    #3 Markus Gerbrandt (F) 8G-16A-24 pts
    #4 Graeme McCormack (D) 6G-16A-22 pts
    #6 Cory Ward (F) 9G-10A-19 pts
    #7 John Parker (F) 11G-6A-17 pts
    #11 Ruslan Pedan (D) 3G-6A-9 pts

    WHAT THEY HAVE COMING BACK

    So that means 6 of the Beavers’ top 10 scorers will return. The class breakdown ends up being 6 seniors, 8 juniors, 8 sophomores and 6 freshmen.
    #1 Gerry Fitzgerald (Jr) 14G-11A-25 pts
    #2 Brendan Harms (Sr) 8G-17A-25 pts
    #5 Kyle Bauman (Jr) 7G-13A-20 pts
    #8 Charlie O’Connor (Sr) 7G-6A-13 Pts
    #9 Leo Fitzgerald (Jr) 3G-9A-12 Pts
    #10 Nate Arentz (Sr) 4G-7A-11 Pts

    WHAT THEY HAVE COMING IN

    Tommy Muck, D-Madison Capitals (USHL) 48 GP, 4G-6A-10 Pts., 6 PIM
    *********Fargo Force (USHL) 15 GP, 0G-7A-7 Pts., 2 PIM, +7
    Jack Burgart, G-Weyburn Red Wings (SJHL) 43 GP, 27W-10L-4OTL, 2SOL, 1.97 GAA, 93.5 Save%, 3 SO
    *********SJHL Playoffs 5 GP, 1W-4L, 2.26 GAA, 94.2 Save%, 0 SO
    Hampus Sjodahl, F-Odessa Jackalopes (NAHL) 60 GP, 35G-34A-69 Pts., 34 PIM, +16
    *********Playoffs 3 GP, 1G-1A-2 Pts., 0 PIM
    -Dylan McCrory, F-Brooks Bandits (AJHL) 60 GP, 24G-46A-70 Pts., 84 PIM
    *********AJHL Playoffs 13 GP, 11G-6A-17 Pts., 12 PIM
    *********Western Canada Cup 6 GP, 0G-2A-2 Pts, 6 PIM
    *********Royal Bank Cup 5 GP, 0G-3A-3 Pts., 6 PIM
    -Adam Brady, F, Lincoln Stars (USHL) 27 GP, 9G-15A-24 Pts., 21 PIM, +1
    -Zach Whitecloud, D, Virden Oil Capitals (MJHL) 59 GP, 6G-34A-40 Pts, 105 PIM
    *********Playoffs 7 GP, 2G-3A-5 Pts., 6 PIM

    WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN

    Probably the biggest area of concern for this year’s team will be on defense, where they will be young. With McCormack graduating and Pedan leaving before his senior year, that leave 6’5” senior Carter Struthers as the lone senior defenseman, and he has only seen limited action in his career due to injuries. They young defensemen did see plenty of action last season with Junior Brett Beauveis having the most experience.

    Goaltending should again be solid with Junior Michael Bitzer having plenty of game experience. He will be backed up by senior Reid Mimmack and junior Jesse Wilkins, who both have seen limited action over their careers. Also on the roster will be incoming goaltender Jack Burgart, who had a very solid campaign last year in the SJHL.

    But as in years past, will the Beavers have that offensive punch that the fans are looking for. Losing four of their top ten scorers will hurt, but on the plus side, they return six. The Beavers started out last year seeming to be an offensive minded team, but then saw their numbers trail off at the end of the year. Some good numbers are coming in from the junior circuits, but as we have heard in the past, junior numbers don’t always translate into college numbers.

    THE SCHEDULE

    With the WCHA having to remove a week from the length of the schedule, each team will miss out on one bye week for the year, which will make the season even that much more of a grind. BSU travels to Alaska twice and will use two of those exemptions for a 36 game schedule. Out of conference games at North Dakota, with Princeton, home and home with Duluth and the North Star Cup (St. Cloud the first round) will test the Beavers. But the WCHA grind will not be an easy one either. BSU (preseason rank #6) will play four games against preseason number 1 Bowling Green, four against number 2 Michigan Tech and four against number 3 Mankato. The other two teams that the Beavers will see four times are Northern Michigan (#5) and Alaska-Anchorage (#8). That leaves two against Ferris (#4), Lake Superior (#7), Huntsville (#9) and Alaska (#10).

    The key for BSU will to be turning around the losing home record while still maintaining the winning road record. Since the Sanford Center has opened, it has not been the home ice that the Glas was. That needs to change. BSU definitely needs to jump out early and get the lead as they have shown in the past they play very well with the lead, but really struggle if they have to come from behind.

    Buckle up the chin straps, it is almost time to start the season!

    As of 9/23/2016

    This is what I have been able to dig up at this time. I don't have John Parker listed as of yet, even though he is in the Washington Capitals' training camp (waiting to see where he ends up). I will also try to follow the four Women's Hockey players that have moved on after college.

    A nice win for the Beavers last night. Freshman Zach Whitecloud gets his first Beaver goal on a power play shot from the blueline. The Beavers looked really good through two periods and then hung on at the end. Tonight should be interesting as Bowling Green will have their full squad tonight.

    Congrats on the sweep. I wasn't expecting you guys to play that well, and you're certainly improved from the playoffs last year. The broadcast was done well too, Lakeland did a great job.

    We are pretty spoiled with the Lakeland PTV coverage. It is kind of nice living three hours from Bemidji and being able to catch the Beaver home games on regular TV.

    Nice win for the Beavers as they shut out Northern Michigan 2-0. Leo Fitzgerald and Jay Dickman with the goals. Michael Bitzer picks up his third win of the year.

    Another shutout for Bitzer and the Beavees as they down Northern Michigan 2-0 for the sweep. The Beavers are 4-0 and have 12 WCHA points. Bring on the Fighting Hawks!

    Really great start for the Beavers this year. Was expecting our D to really struggle this year but have been fantastic so far. Really excited for the UND series starting tonight. Wanted to go to the games but can't. We usually play very close with UND but I would be really impressed if we could get a split as I'm not sure if we're for real or not yet but this weekend will be a great way to find out.

    Beavers outplayed UND for the first 25 minutes and then CJ settled in and NoDak turned it around. Very impressed with Bemidji... seems to have a nice mix of skill and size and plays a fun brand of hockey. And by the way, the penalty shot on Boeser was extremely soft. That was a bad break for BSU.

    Pretty disappointing game last night. Dominated the first period got the two goal lead then started playing conservative and gave up the lead. This team seems to do that a lot with leads. Did it both of the first two weekends as well. Can get away with that against WCHA teams for the most part but not against UND. Would like to see them stay aggressive even with leads

    The Beavers broke out some old throwback "Beavers" script jerseys this weekend in Grand Forks. I like them!
