    One thing off the wish list!
    Awesome! I hope you are right in your assessment. If he can be like Less, consistent if not spectacular, that would fit. While I am greedy, maybe a tad more "****/vinegar" and harder shot! Like I stated earlier, if this kid plays out, have him paired with Yau to mentor and also "cover" for him. So with that said here as the pairings: Yau/Markell Matthews/Less Demler/Han with Roth (needs to regain confidence and form) and Dimaio in the picture to give lefty/righty options (not essential but helps especially on PK). Thoughts GreenBear???

    MVP - Will Graber Once he started getting hot his TREE line and team got rolling with some much needed offensive production. It is no surprise that the above recipients were greatly helped out by Graber as we have discussed during the season.

    Rookie of the Year - Brendan Less We all know how difficult it is to play defense let alone as a freshman but Less did with consistency and without panache which is exactly what you would want out of a D. He played in all scenarios 5 on 5, PP(little bit) and PK

    Most Improved - Shane Sellar You talk about fulfilling your role and playing honestly and the right way...that's him. He frankly does more with less and maximizing his strengths and minimizing his improvement areas.

    Thoughts GreenBear?

    I'd have stayed with Buffalo for MVP. Most of the time, the team played differently, and with more confidence when he was in net. That's not to say that Clark did not play exceptionally well at time, but Buffalo had established himself as the starter and was on top of his game most nights, and the team responded. But Graber and Buffalo were the only players who really could have staked a claim to MVP this past season.

    I could have gone with Less as ROY. I'm fine w/ Foreman. But I saw a lot in Less, and I think that because he's a defenseman and doesn't put up points he gets overlooked by a lot of people (not teammates or coaches--more fans, etc). Less was my unsung hero on the ice. That's not related to the team's unsung hero award which goes beyond that--I defer to players and coaches judgment w/ Rymsha & Shatzer of course--but I really liked Less' quiet game. He doesn't stand out, but he may have been the most dependable guy in the Dartmouth defensive zone all year.

    Sellar was a shoo-in for most improved. I mean, how could it go to anyone else?

    Carl Hesler's return to Dartmouth appears official. He's listed again on the team roster, as a senior. The current players have been bumped up a class, and the incoming players aren't there yet; I'll keep an eye out. Hopefully soon.

    Also, Jamie McLaughlin is not listed, so he may have left the program.

    Dartmouth has yet to release its schedule but has notified season ticket holders that if they haven't paid for the 2018-19 year by Aug. 1st they lose their tickets.

    Now that it is Dartmouth official, Carl Hesler's return is great news for the Big Green! Carl will undoubtedly be either 1c or 2c and will play a major role in PP/PK's well. I should prefaced this by saying from what I have seen from Carl the last few years. Now after injury and a one year hiatus, who knows about his injury recovery or his hockey form. But I am betting a Carl being the Carl I am used to seeing...200 ft player that plays the game the right and honest way. He will make the Big Green better!

    It will be very interesting to see the incoming freshmen list. As far as McLaughlin goes, he did not get much TOI and when he did, not much happen either way, positive or negative. Regardless, good luck to McLaughlin.

    And it's a bit of a tricky one to figure out, since there's one unknown game. I think we can safely say Harvard will be 1 Feb, and if the alternating pattern holds, it'll be at Harvard. The missing opponent will most likely be UVM, although they've taken a break from their SLU series so I can't be sure (despite you being their closest opponent in distance). If they are, perhaps you'd start the season with them, since they have a "3rd game" at UNH on that same weekend? I have an odd feeling that the Bentley game would be the weekend of 4-5 January, and if it is, it'd be the 4th, with Bentley playing Harvard on the 5th. Maybe BU fits in there? Where does the other Harvard game fit? Maybe in the same weekend as UVM?

    This is just a hypothesis, I'm not saying it's what has been reported, so obviously I'm not filling in anything on the spreadsheet in that other thread. Any disproving would be helpful.
    It was an honor to present your colors, RPI. Let's Go 'TUTE!

    All schedule questions can now be answered:

    http://www.dartmouthsports.com/Sport...B_OEM_ID=11600

    Key games--

    Opening night: Oct 27 (Homecoming) vs Harvard
    Tennis Balls: Friday, Nov 2 vs. Princeton
    Out of conference: Nov 24 (vs. Vermont), Dec 7 & 8 (home/home with UNH), Dec 14 (at BU), Jan 5 (at Bentley)
    Ledyard: We knew this already, but Army and Providence
    Senior night: Feb 23 (Brown)

    However: Feb 1 game is non-bold face but says it's in Hanover. I believe as said earlier we can safely assume it's at Harvard. Ditto Feb 8: RPI should be bold faced as that game is definitely at home.

    Looking forward to your visit to Bentley's new rink on January 5th.
