    I want one of those Snail Mail jerseys.

    Is it a coincidence that she shares the same number with the skating jesus?

    The 2018 roster has been posted. It lists incoming frosh Gracie Ostertag as a F, but everything else I have seen (including her bio on GWH) talks about her as a D. Position change, or typo?

    Typo...Slim and none (and mostly none) are the odds of it being a position change with the depth at forward and the lack of depth at D.

    Maybe they're going to use the system that UMD did back around 2002-2003 where they'd play 4F and 1D even when teams were 5 on 5.

    Looks like Ostertag is now listed as defense so that has been corrected. It also has Sierra Smith and Emma May listed as defense...Maybe that will solve the D depth problem.

    Then again, why not go all bc on the bit and basically have 2 D that are really forwards and just forget about D and have everyone on offense?

    60 minute power play - great for fans who like breakaways and high-scoring games!

    Could be good for a maroon and gold jersey swapping transfer as well...

    Who wants to take a bet with me that Agnew will put up 30 points this year

    This year meaning 2018? And exactly 30 points?
    If on the other hand you meant at least 30 points during the coming 2018-19 season that would equate to a rather healthy 130% increase over 2017-18. Based on her much improved play towards the end of this past season it would certainly be attainable given BC's expected dominance in Hockey East - provided she's paired with any combination of Watts, Lonergan, Newkirk (doubtful) PLUS ends up skating on the No. 1 power play unit for most of the season (doubtful x's 2).

    The bet would have to be for a couple dozen cupcakes, right? Or maybe some whoopie pies?

    Sincere Congratulations to Natalie. One of my all-time favorite "opposing" players.

    Best Darwitz Memory? I was at the Whitt for her National Title Winning Goal in 2005 at the Whitt. Spectacular finish to an awesome Minnesota/Harvard game.

    The Hall of Fame selection is a well deserved honor for all the reasons chronicled in the article. Thanks for posting the link, D2D.
