    He really didn't speak about the program or the institution. He didn't try to talk to her or get to know her. After a game in which she played Forward (she has played D since Squirts) without introducing himself he would go on to only tell her about things she had done wrong in the game. I'm not at all against that, but it was said in a manner that was very negative and nothing constructive. She had actually scored a goal, granted on a great assist by one of her teammates, and had 5 shots on goal in that game. She DID have her faults during the game but she also did some good things. This was the first time he had ever spoken to her in person. He had good things to say through emails, but seemed to be very different in person.

    As far as the program she chose, she immediately had a great rapport with the coach and the coach was very positive in her communication (through both email and in person). This held true with the assistant coaches. They were able to talk to her and mention things they liked about her play and areas they thought she could improve, but always focused on being constructive and building confidence (which we are finding out is true for MANY girl players). Ultimately for my daughter, it was the schooling she could get along with playing hockey through her college years.

    So is this a new rule? First day of practice on a national holiday...I guess there's no rest for the anxious-to-get-started!

    First Day of Practice as in first day it's permitted (except in the NESCAC). I'm sure with the holiday many programs had the actual first practice today.

    So D3 is now a week earlier than it used to be. I like that rule change. I always felt they should let D3 start on October 1st across the board no matter when their first game is. Let them have 2 weeks of dryland training (and the team bonding that goes hand-in-hand with that), and then allowed on the ice for practices after those 2 weeks. I would even let them start dryland on September 15th, but mandatory weekends off until October 15th. Then on ice practices after that with one day off per week. Just my two cents.

    What is the official NESCAC start date rule?

    Iím pretty sure most teams were on the ice Monday. Both Norwich teams were including a 6am for the NU men. Also, Columbus Day is not a holiday for many higher ed institutions.

    Cadets look to be strong contenders to repeat in '19. The game in Pine Valley on the 27th will be lots of fun!

    Every year is a new year! Lost a very good goalie (program all-time win and Shutout record holder), Patrice Bergeron (Schwenzfeier) and a strong-offensive skilled defenseman.

    Looking forward to the game on Oct. 27 as well. Rematch of the national championship game to open the season? Doesn't get much better than that.

    Jim Fowler, not Rick.

    I can't believe he returned to coaching. Whenever I saw him after he left the men's coaching job, he was very happy, always mentioning how much more time he has in his life without worrying about all the coaching duties and recruitment trips.

    Of course, it does say interim, and in this case, it really may be interim. He may have been persuaded to step in as a favor to the school because there was no one else available at this late notice, with the full intent that they will hire someone else eventually.

    This school is known for having some of the lowest salaries in D3 hockey which means their applicant pool was probably very shallow. This is another way for them to save more money by not having to pay a full salary to someone else. From what I've gathered by doing a little digging around he was a disgrace as their men's coach so this is another step backwards for the women's team. It makes me wonder if or why none of their recent female assistant coaches applied for the job.

    Wilkes and Nazareth, the remaining two programs making their debuts, have published their rosters.

    It looks like Wilkes is indeed going forward with 9 players, seven skaters and two goalies. I'm hoping they can survive the season with that squad and build up next season.

    Nazareth has the largest roster of the 4 new programs. 3 goalies, 15 forwards, 6 defenders and 2 skaters who can play forward or defense. One transfer in Shanley Austin, Morrisville's 7th leading scorer (3rd among freshman) last season. She is listed as a Rochester native so that could have been a factor in her decision to move on from Morrisville.

    The Plattsburgh roster is up.

    9 freshmen (1 G, 2 D, 6 F) and no transfers. In addition to the graduation of seniors Meneghin, Sheeran, Viola and Wolejko Plattsburgh does not return defender Baye Flanagan and forwards Karen Hudson and Meghan Kraus for 18-19.

    Is this a bit of a reset/reload year for Plattsburgh? Seems they may be a little young to challenge Norwich.
