    Re: Bemidji State Beavers: Defending the MacNaughton 2017-18

    Another season of Beaver Hockey has come and gone. The Beavers did win the MacNaughton for claiming the WCHA Regular Season Title, but did come up short in the WCHA Playoffs and earning a NCAA Bid. The Beavers did finally have a winning home record at the Sanford Center, going 13-8-1 (11-2-1 WCHA), and did have a winning road record at 9-6-2 (9-4-1 WCHA). They did drop their two neutral site games in the final North Star Cup. So, time to take a look at what the Beavers lose and what they have coming back.

    LOSSES (Season total, career total)

    -Phillip Marinaccio (F) 41 GP, 11-18-29 Pts. (147 GP, 19-39-58 Pts.)

    -Nate Arentz (F) 41 GP, 7-7-14 Pts. (140 GP, 23-30-53 Pts.)
    -Carter Struthers (D) 29 GP, 0-1-1 Pt. (36 GP, 0-1-1 Pt.)
    -Jesse Wilkins (G) 2 GP, 0W-2L-0T, 88.1 Sv%, 2.59 GAA (18 GP, 3W-10L-3T, 90.6 Sv%, 2.78 GAA)
    -Reid Mimmack (G) DNP (11 GP, 4W-1L-1T, 89.6 Sv%, 2.69 GAA)

    RETURNING (Season total, career total)

    -Gerry Fitzgerald (F) 39 GP, 13-13-26 Pts. (112 GP, 34-26-70 Pts.)
    -Kyle Bauman (F) 41 GP, 13-10-23 Pts. (110 GP, 28-31-59 Pts.)

    -Tyler Vold, D-Minnesota Wilderness (NAHL) 56 GP, 6G-30A-36 Pts., 16 PIM, +11

    I think Jubenvill, Armour and Sillinger may be eligible for Junior Hockey for one more year. We will see come September.

    NON CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

    This is unofficial, but what I have been able to gather is that the Beavers will be playing:
    -Air Force in Bemidji (to open the season?)
    -Home and Home with Duluth (in October)
    -Home and Home with North Dakota
    -Two at Princeton

    That is about all for now, discuss!

    Re: Bemidji State Beavers: Defending the MacNaughton 2017-18

    Former Beaver Matt Read broke his are last week and will miss the Flyers' last five games. Rumor is he will be left unprotected in the expansion draft and would be available for the new Las Vegas team.

    Re: Bemidji State Beavers: Defending the MacNaughton 2017-18

    The 2017-18 WCHA schedule is supposed to mirror the 2015-16 schedule with the sites of the opponents you only played twice flipped. If that is the case, the Beavers' schedule next year would be:

    Four games with:
    -Mankato
    -Huntsville
    -Alaska
    -Lake Superior
    -Ferris

    Two games at home with:
    -Anchorage
    -Northern

    Two games on the road with:
    -Bowling Green
    -Michigan Tech

    Non-conference games:
    -Two with Air Force
    -Two at Princeton
    -Home and Home with Duluth
    -Home and Home with North Dakota

    Re: Bemidji State Beavers: Defending the MacNaughton 2017-18

    We say that mirroring thing, but that doesn't really work — each team is due to go to Alaska twice in one season just twice in nine seasons, so there's not symmetry.

    That said, I welcome the shot to take the rodents down!

    NMU has been at both Alaskas twice in four years and will do it again this year.

    We're at Huntsville too. It's the same lineup as 2013-14 and the mirror of 2015-16. Four year rotation evens everything out, according to the league office. UAH has been to both Alaskas twice in 4 years. So has Bemidji.

    BSU will be racking up the miles next year.... At Fairbanks, at Huntsville, at Bowling Green, at Ferris, at the Soo. Five of the six longest trips for the Beavers, just missing Anchorage....

    Re: Bemidji State Beavers: Defending the MacNaughton 2017-18

    Note: this is a thought experiment for me with anyone else interested getting to read it. I was basing two-in-nine based off of a draft presentation that UAH went to the WCHA with in their bid to get into the league.

    With the current group you have, non-Alaska schools play five groups:
    A: Rival, 4x guaranteed
    B: $Alaska and one other
    C: $Alaska and one other
    D: Two others
    E: Two others

    Each year, you play one of B or C and D or E home-and-away. When you play B four times, you play C twice; the same for D and E.

    What isn't clear: do the groups shift after four years? Obviously B and C will split the Alaskas every time, but would there be other considerations? As an example, would you try to split up the UP schools for Bemidji/Huntsville/Mankato (i.e., not putting two of the three in D or E). I haven't looked at the pairings for 13-14 through 16-17, but if I can find time, I'll do that and see how it's happening.

    And, of course, the league is considering changes for 18-19, including dropping to 24 conference games.

    I've been trying to noodle my way through an arrangement that works for that where there's not a long-term rotation of the schedule. You can't get to one Alaska trip a year for every league team: eight trips means that there are only five home league dates for each team in a world where each team gets six home WCHA weekends.

    Should be some real quality there. Duluth will likely take a slight step back, but will still be good. NoDak is NoDak. Air Force was looking like Top 15 material before their goalie announcement, but should still be decent, and Princeton is on the rise (had a handful of recruits in the latest Central Scouting service rankings that came out today).

    Yeah, it will be a good one, I think. I just hope the Green can get some wins in there.

    We have been well aware of it since they announced they were joining BSU during their junior hockey days.
