    It definitely is, by a long shot.

    Before this year, we'd never had more than 5. When Ruhwedel got called up the Pens, that brought us to 6.

    College hockey inc is not college hockey news but I think we all knew that....

    Looks like every conference can ice a team... Boston college can nearly do that on its own

    Lowell has more than Amherst... so again, Lowell reigns supreme.

    Joe Gambardella had an assist on Bakersfield's 1st period goal tonight - his 1st career point in his 1st pro game.

    Edit: He just scored his 1st goal too. Quite the professional debut.

    David Vallorani named to the All-ECHL 2nd team.

    He's currently 3rd in the ECHL in scoring.

    Kind of curious to see what happens with Hellebuyck in Winnipeg next year. They gave a 21-year (2nd Round pick in '13) his first start last night. Not saying he's out of a job or anything, but the Jets have a lot of young talent at that spot, albeit I think Hellebuyck is the best of them.

    Some quick stats ... Hellebuyck started 52 games for the Jets this year, his 2.93 GAA was second best to 2.92 for Hutchinson. His 90.6% was the best on the team. He won 25 of the 39 games the Jets won this year.

    Also, glad to see ND lose last night. I'm sure the travel to Chicago was too much for them.

    So does anyone know if there is talk of a contract extension for Norm? From what I can find he is under contract through the end of the upcoming season (unless I missed something).

    Re: UMass Lowell Off-Season 2017: Next verse, same as the first

    Has anyone heard about the non league schedule for next season? Hockey East will go to 24 league games so there will only be 10 games to fill. I believe the following games have been confirmed:

    Omaha (x2)
    UMass Amherst
    @ St Lawrence
    @ Clarkson
    @ Arizona State (x2)

    Speaking of 24 league games. Does anyone know the teams the Hawks will play three times next season?

    I wonder how this is going to work... will there be a pre-set rotation based on previous finish or just a set rotation or willl it be cherry picked (let's say, zoomass, Merrimack, providence, BU)

    Be great to avoid the non-league/third Amherst game because of the Alumni Cup and be able to schedule a stronger opponent. Maybe alter how they award the Cup like total goals in two games wins it?

    From a CHN interview:

    When you look at our schedule for 2017-18 when weíre back at 11 teams, the coaches voted to add four games. So in addition to the home-away games against each opponent, each team will play an additional four games in the league, so weíll have an imbalanced schedule.

    We had Tim Danehy, who does computer programming for the NCAA, he figured out a way to take the previous yearís standings and make it fair. You want to make sure someone isnít getting the top-four teams or the bottom-four teams in those extra games. You need to get a mix, and there is a point system working in there.

    Thereís the potential that, just because a team is eighth one year, it doesnít mean they donít have a good year the next, so you could have a schedule that has a concentration of very good teams. But no one wanted the alternative, which was 20 league games and 14 non-league games. Instead they wanted 24 and 10, so weíll see how that goes. But I donít see us getting to the point where we just take a 12th team because it isnít working, we can make it work.
