    Wow. I thought he was very well liked . Did Damon see this as an opportunity to get an old friend a coaching job ?

    I doubt that it was the reason why they got rid of Doug.

    And I mean, there are some rumors as to why he wasn't renewed, it is a small town after all, and I don't care much for spreading those around.

    Now, do I think Damon knew York was looking for a more permanent gig at this level? Sure. But I think that if they got rid of Doug to make room for York, then I think the hire would've been a lot sooner than it was.

    That specifically is the International Tour exemption, which is something you may do anytime outside the regular season (or during Christmas) once every 4+ years. This is something completely different.

    Looks like Jim Roll is going to play for Niagara this coming season. Since he's an LSSU graduate, I think he can play right away there as he uses his last year of eligibility. And that's right in his home territory.

    Eh. We knew he wasn't going to be back, though I am surprised that a team brought him in with only the one year left instead of bringing in a young guy, though I have to say, I know nothing about Niagra's program.

    They probably needed help and he's from the Buffalo area and he has a year of eligibility left. We're seeing a little more of this in recent years. A kid graduates from one school having used only 3 years of his eligibility, then goes on to play one more season of college hockey elsewhere, and he doesn't have to sit out a year.

    ... if his final school offers a graduate degree program that his previous school did not.

    I thought going to a graduate school was a completely separate application process, even if it's the same school? Or does it vary from place to place?

    Some universities have a streamlined graduate school application process (UAH does, mainly for engineering students who're going to stay in-discipline and full-time after they finish their BSE), but as I understand it, student-athletes are allowed to pursue that fifth year elsewhere if their desired program isn't at their first school.

    FWIW, Nathan Bowen (UAH '99) was a graduate student for his final year of eligibility.

    Thanks Geof. I knew there was some other condition involved but wasn't sure what it was off the top of my head.

    I checked out the schedule on and the Friday, November 24 game against the USNTDP U-18 is no longer on there. I'm guessing the Friday game got dropped or they are in the process of moving the Friday game to a Sunday.

    The Lakers had 4 exhibition games on the posted schedule. You're only allowed to play 2. My guess would be that they firmed up the date with the US team. I would expect one of those Laurentian games to drop off as well as you are only allowed one game vs a Canadian team.

    If games do get dropped, the season ticket prices would have to be adjusted (lowered) to reflect the one or two less games.

    Yeah, probably just the Saturday only.

    One of the Canadian games is a TBD; I assume that one's also going? Obviously will wait for confirmation.

    Laurentian schedule is out and it lists both games. My guess is the NCAA allowed LSSU to have the extra Laurentian game but said no to the extra US-Under 18 game.

    LSSU gets a lot of NCCA love lately. Bringing in a Major Junior player and now an extra game.

    I do wonder under what grounds they would allow that... part of me still thinks they won't, hence why Sunday's is still listed as TBD.
