    Norwich has carried 28 almost every year I've been here. It's one over the normal.

    With such a large freshmen/sophomore class, you're bound to lose one or two eventually for various reasons.

    Lot of seniors earning professional tryouts or already earned roster spots for 2017-18.

    Cody Smith and Ty Piacentini are with the Huntsville Havoc in the SPHL.

    Ty Reichenbach is in camp with the Norfolk Admirals of the ECHL, but already has a spot with the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs (SPHL) if that doesn't pan out. Brian Rowland is also in camp with Roanoke.

    Paul Russell is on the Florida Everblades roster in the ECHL.

    William Pelletier is with the Rockford Ice Hogs of the AHL (Chicago Blackhawks affiliate)

    Anthony Flaherty was in camp with the Rapid City Rush of the ECHL, but he was released.

    Pretty impressive senior class to have seven players either playing professional hockey or get looks right out of college.

    Looks like Ty made the Norfolk Admirals, as evidenced by his 40-save performance and his first career win last night. https://www.norfolkadmirals.com/pres...teelheads-5-3/

    Gotta admit that part of me feels a little slighted. I lived in Hampton Roads for 3.5 years and went to dozens of Admirals games. I would try to keep track of former NU players and go to games against teams that, at last heard, had a former Cadet on their roster (especially after they dropped from the AHL to the ECHL a couple years ago). Never, to my knowledge, did I actually see one (a couple times one would be on the roster on the website but would not be in uniform on the ice). So of course it would be after I move to West Texas that one is actually on the Admirals.

    Per george commo:

    WDEV will be broadcasting the Nichols game Saturday night. AUDIO ONLY ... NO VIDEO ... and that there is no broadcast coverage planned for the St. Anslem game on Sunday.

    and from me:

    We will NOT be live streaming either exhibition game.

    Bondage? Does the future Mrs. Prezde know of these proclivities?

    Prezde - double and triple check the broadcast. Clarkson farked up the times of the broadcast by 12 hrs and there was nothing on the air until 5 minutes into the game.

    With it officially being opening week, what are the expectations for this season? What would be considered a successful season?

    Last year, KRB consistently (and, as it turned out, rightfully) made comparisons between the '16-'17 team and the '09-'10 team. But the freshman class of '09 (coincidentally, also my freshman class) would go to the Final Four all four years. That's a high, and rather unrealistic, bar to meet.

    But, this year's team has another strong senior class. Not as strong as last year's perhaps, but having Ostepchuk in goal, Salvucci and Baldillez at forward, and Brandrup and Evangelista on D is a nice balance and talent-pool of seniors.

    With them leading the team, and notably, a returning sophomore class that looked great down the stretch last year as freshmen, I'm looking for another conference championship and competition for another Frozen Four appearance.

    What say you?

    Watch out for Endicott. 10 D1 transfers. They got to the QF last year and took Trinity to 2OT.

    Big O will carry the team between the pipes. Defense I think will lean on the veteran guys (namely Brandrup) but Evangelista has impressed me as of late.

    I think the biggest thing for me is the Sophomore forwards are going to have to step up into big roles this year. Last year they had the seniors to heavily rely on and feed off of. It didn't really strike me until watching the games this weekend how much of a leadership role they will need to take with the large Freshman class. That will be interesting for me to see develop and expect Todd Jackson to lead the way. Newcomers that caught my eye the most were probably #18 Colby Downs and #44 Kane, that being said, none of them look like slouches and I'm excited to see them get their feet underneath them as they get more comfortable at this level.

    Salvucci will lead the offense and looks great so far. I think he will have a MONSTER year which shouldn't be that bold of a statement if you have seen him play the last few years.

    Really excited to see this team. They have a huge target on their backs which seems odd since they have so many new faces and don't really have an overall team identity at the moment. Having a Top Goaltender and some very good upperclassmen will help ease the transition. Looks like another speedy and exciting team to watch.

    I liked Cowlthorp as well from the freshmen bunch in the game I was able to take in on Sunday afternoon.

    Certainly have to like scoring 7 goals and giving up none against two decent teams in Nichols/Saint Anselm.

    Excited for Friday night and the banner ceremony. Hard to believe another season is here already.
