    Dang! I like your thinking, capswon. You and I are on the same page. This weekend is an off-weekend, so I was actually thinking of Hagerstown (late models). I board Amtrak on Tuesday evening for Saint Paul. Feel free to e-mail me at iowabasedtraveler at yahoo dot com. he he he

    I was at Colgate, Clarkson and Lake Placid for the ECAC tournament and at Allentown and Saint Paul for the NCAA tournament. I think if you divided up the 60 programs into three tiers, Colgate would be in the middle to bottom of the second tier right now (and my other fave, Omaha, would be in the top of that same second tier). Of course, even the extreme bottom of the top tier isnít guaranteed a spot in the NCAAís, given conference tourney upsets (as we saw this year). So, you are right (in my opinion)... we arenít in a bad position closing out the 2017-2018 season, but we have a ways to go to truly compete for the NCAA tournament.

    Absolutely heartbreaking. I canít imagine what that community is going through.

    Gerard Waslen played for the Humboldt Broncos before coming to Colgate in the early Ď80s.

    Ditto. It is an unimanageble tragedy. The hockey world mourns those lost and injured, and prays for the families of all concerned.

    Thus endith the college hockey season. All praise UMD!

    Looks like Colgate at Miami (Ohio) non-conference series on October 26-27, according to RedHawks release today.
    I have seen Michigan State, Providence and Nebraska - Omaha at Miami (Ohio), and it is a great atmosphere for college hockey.
    Go 'Gate!

    From the coach today...


    The 2018-19 schedule is tentatively set and will be released over the summer. I can share with you that it has good balance with games against teams representing the Big Ten, Hockey East, The National Collegiate Hockey Conference and Atlantic Hockey, along with 22 of our most challenging games in the ECAC Hockey League. The class of 2022 is almost complete. We will be adding five new players, three forwards and two goalies. More details will be forthcoming.

    Anyone who is interested take a look at the incoming recruits for the women's team. Man, are they amazing! You can see the recruits by going to the Gate sports message board, click on the thread about women's ice hockey, and open the link on the last posting. Looks like Coach of the Year Fargo has himself another winning recruiting class. Well done! Hope some of this will rub off on the mens side.

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    USCHO logged me out and it's been so long I forgot my password so I haven't been able to sign in for a couple of weeks. Left them emails and no one got back to me, I finally figured it out.

    Something has been irking me, Point has been second team to Cornell's goalie in most of the post season accolades (All American etc). If you look at number of saves he has about 40-50% more saves, it's in the hundreds. Cornell bias ? What are they looking at ?
    It all starts with the goaltending.

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    whatever it is I think Shabby is correct...for starters, save percentages go up as SOG/game increase...perhaps a Cornell bias, maybe simply a case of rewarding someone on a team that finished in the top five in the country...Austin Smith got really screwed, so why not Colton Point?

    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    Anyone who watched more then 2-3 games of the ECAC season knows Colton Point was by far the best goalie in the league and is one of the best pro prospects at goalie in college hockey, I would take a guess since they gave Galajda the MVP they didn't want to put him on the 2nd team. Cornell has a system in place where they're never going to have bad goaltending statistics so it's tough to evaluate how good they are.

    100% agreed on Colton Point...he was the best in the ECAC! Said another way, without him keeping you guys in a game or outright stealing a game, you would probably be steering down at road games for the first round rather than hosting this past season. With all due respect for Galajda, he was protected by a very good shutdown lockdown team and system in Cornell. Colton will be in the "big show" soon enough!

    Golden 'Gates dinner and awards presentation was held tonight in Hamilton, N.Y., with men's hockey goaltender Colton Point of North Bay (Ontario, Canada) earning the (male) Athlete of the Year award and women's hockey forward Jessie Eldridge of Barrie (Ontario, Canada) earning the (female) Athlete of the Year award. Outgoing Athletic Director Vicky Chun (to Yale) gave the closing remarks, including a warm welcome to incoming AD Nicki Moore (from UNC Chapel Hill). President Brian Casey and Board of Trustees president David Hurwitz also spoke at the well-attended year-ending event.
