    Speaking of special teams, Nooks HAVE TO cut down on PIMs significantly. Led the league last year. That crap has to stop. Too many dumb ones!

    I'm sure we had more than our fair share of 10 min misconducts, but our total minutes are a bit inflated with a couple of game ending donny-brooks that didn't put us a man down during game play. We had 46 pm in one game against BGSU and 78 pm in one game against LSSU. It's not a coincidence that both those teams were right up there in pm. Frye (30 for 71 pm) gave Erickson (30 for 79 pm) a good run for his money for time in the box. We do need to be more disciplined. The best way to stop an opponents pp is to not give them chances.

    Agreed. Discipline over emotion. Tough to win games if you're killing penalties especially in the 3rd.

    I keep hearing that Anton Martinsson is the real deal. Should be interesting if so...we haven't had a workhorse shutdown goalie since Chad Johnson and Scott Greenham were around. Looking forward to seeing what he can do.

    Ya I heard he is one of the hardest workers in practice. In fact, watched him a few times in the NAHL and when he's on ... he's very good. (I suppose you can say that about all goalies) The key will be consistency. And when he's not at the top of his game that night, can the team provide additional support such as blocking shots, moving their feet, etc.

    A few shots from Saturday night’s Blue/Gold game, won by Gold 4-2 FWIW. Fairly good pace for this type of game, but can’t really tell anything about scoring ability or goaltending strength. Anxious for our exhibition against Simon Fraser this coming Friday (9-29-17). Go Nooks!

    A few shots from Friday night’s 6-0 exhibition win over Simon Fraser University. The boys dominated play, outshooting FSU 53-12, but there is work to be done.

    Nice to see the boys back on the ice…


    Lots of early chances but did not convert…


    We have all our defense back and only four freshmen forwards. Justin Young and the other freshmen played well...


    Tyler Cline was able to knock this one down and back hand it into the net for 1-0 lead as time expired in the first period...


    The Nooks continued to controll play in the second period...


    Off a nice feed from freshman Steven Jandric, team captain Justin Woods was able to put this wrister past the SFU goaltender for the 2-0 lead...


    Jandric got his first goal as Nook and made in 3-0 when his pass attempt thru the crease went off a SFU defensemen...


    Troy Van Tetering was able to poke this rebound through early in the third to take a 4-0 lead.


    The Nooks take on Air Force at home this coming weekend.
    Go Nooks!

    We got done what we needed to get done against SFU. I thought the guys settled down once they got the first goal and proceeded to relax and drop the hammer in periods 2 and 3.

    This Air Force series should be interesting and a decent benchmark test. We have had success against the Academy in prior years, but Air Force is projected to win their conference and did make an NCAA tourney appearance last year.

    The next couple of weekends against Air Force (home) and St. Cloud (away) will not only be a true barometer of where we are at, but important non-conference match-ups. The USCHO preseason poll has Air Force at 17 and St. Cloud at 9. Air Force is good and will be disciplined and well conditioned, and St. Cloud just has a lot of talent. In our last meeting, SCSU beat us 3-0 in the 2015-16 Kendall.

    I was at that game, and it was not as close as the final score suggests. St. Cloud in their barn will be a big test.

    Funny. I originally wrote..."but it wasn't really that close". But since not many of the same players will be taking the ice, I deleted it before posting.
