    He wasn't eligible until after Christmas because he transferred from Robert Morris. After that he was only scratched 4 times, which I feel is pretty good considering how much Norm likes to rotate younger guys in and out of the lineup.

Evingson's still too much of an unknown for me; I was expecting more...maybe unreasonably so. Lohin's line was the greatest disappointment for me; I thought the regression was quite evident (as was Göransson's). Wall played more aggressively challenging shooters in is freshman year; he was too passive this year. He's the first goalie I can recall who has taken a step back in year two under this coaching staff. I feel there's far too much mediocrity in the rest of the line up which gives me pause for next year. I'm hoping the incoming class will provide the infusion of talent and competition necessary to raise the level of game play back up to what we now expect from a Bazin led team.
    I agree about Schutz, I thought he skated hard and played with a lot of energy which the team desperately needed. I was surprised he was a out of the lineup in a couple of games down the stretch. I think Evingson just needs time but I'll admit I thought he would play more, only 16 games. The big surprise to me was Baxter who played in 30 games.

    Older brother Zack and the Florida Everblades play them on Tuesday April 3. That should be interesting.

    This leaves Ryan Collins as the only senior that hasn't signed with a pro team thus far.

    Understood, I was referring to when he was eligible to play. I hadn't counted the number of games played vs games eligible; thanks for that because it felt like he missed more than 4. I didn't understand Norm's decision not to play him in the first playoff game against MC; Schutz has exhibited a consistent effort when on the ice when much of the team seemed to be sleep skating.

    PS - I liked what I saw from Paskus; he was a plus player in albeit a small sample size of games (9).

    Baxter was a real pleasant surprise for me too. I thought his game only got better as the year progressed and his team best (+12) is certainly evidence of that.

    A nice night for former River Hawk Mike Louria. He had a 3 points (1-2-3) including the game winner in OT as Robert Morris advances to the AHC championship game.

    Re: UMass Lowell 2018: Champions of the Offseason

    I know Minnesota is the be all and end all for college hockey ... so I'm not surprised to see some Gopher fan included Bazin in his list of possible replacements for Lucia. I don't see it happening, but sure. But then I read the bio that was put together, and I want to hang my head in shame for the person.
    Norm Bazin-UMass-Lowell Redhawks Head Coach: Age 47
    Bazin is in his seventh season as the head coach of UMass-Lowell. He was led the Redhawks to Hockey East titles in 2013 and 2017. Bazin is a UML alum and played four years for the Redhawks between 1990 and 1994. Basin spent time as an assistant coach both for UMass-Lowell and Colorado College before coaching D3 Hamilton College for four seasons prior to taking the UML job.
    Ouch. The whole thing is a disgrace.

    I'm not sure how you can write an article without doing the slightest bit of fact checking. Also, unsure how you can spell his name correctly and incorrectly in back to back sentences.

    That's funny. Thankfully according to the Minnesota fan thread, they won't even think of considering someone who has no ties to Minnesota.

    It appears RIT will be coming to Lowell for two games next season.

    From the schedule thread:

    Still assuming the AIC & Bentley return trips, with 4 games left, I'm thinking there will be two more OOC games at Tsongas and a holiday tournament.

    RIT x2

    I believe there'll be a big name coming to Tsongas from the west... but not sure.

    It might be Duluth again because I heard Lowell was playing out there in 2019-20.

    No return trip to AIC (at least in 2018-19) and no holiday tournament.

    It's not. It's a different team.

    Thanks, and this is all good news in my opinion as I like to see new teams.
