Just a quick note to continue where we were at on the other thread: Hartford Civic Center - November 4, 2005. QU vs Harvard in QU's first ECAC game ever. I distinctly remember an incredible effort on campus to build excitement... and it worked. The place was rocking... the Hartford Civic Center! Was just looking at the pictures I have. Hell of a game, hell of a memory.

Hartford Civic Center - November 4, 2005. QU vs Harvard in QU's first ECAC game ever.That was my first taste of Quinnipiac hockey. I remember commenting to my wife that the enthusiasm of the fans and primarily the students was unbelieveable.

With the banquet 2 weeks away it's time to see what everyone thinks the team awards will be.

Most Valuable Player
Rookie of the Year
7th Player Award
Coaches Award
Academic Award

Here's my picks:

Most Valuable Player: Connor Jones. Led the team in points and was a factor everytime he was on the ice.

Rookie of the Year: Matt Peca without a doubt.

7th Player Award: Spencer Heichman. Spencer was one of the grittiest players wearing blue and gold all year. He may not have a big physical presence but his heart is huge. He really stepped up his game this season and when they pinned that "A" on his sweater it was like he had a big, red "S". The only thing missing was the cape.

Coaches Award: Mike Glaicar. A solid performer who developed into one of the Bobcats best defensemen over his 4 years.

Academic Award: Pretty sure Yuri Bouharevich takes this one again.

And, that kind of drive on campus just isn't there anymore on campus. Aside from the Yale game, that is.

Even the Yale game hasnt been nearly as raucous as previous years and this years meant arguably the most with a bye on the line. Weak.

Home out-of-conference games.

Robert Morris University (Two-game series)
Ohio State University (Two-game series)
University of Nebraska-Omaha(Two-game series)
American International College
University of Connecticut

Four interesting games, and four really disappointing games. Wonder if QU will fill in by playing any tournaments?

They are currently scheduled for single games at UMass and Providence and a game against Colgate on Cape Cod. There is still one more non-conference game with an unknown opponent (the current rumor mill says that it will be against Maine, possibly at Portland).

The NCAA schedule spreadsheet set up and run by FlagDUDE can be found here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AjrUzfoOPCB5dHBkczZYYUMwUHBBdGRFc3dGRVBNN 0E#gid=0) and is updated very rapidly with any new information posted in the Schedules thread (http://board.uscho.com/showthread.php?100452-2012-2013-schedules).

Figures someone would post on the hottest day of the year, and I'm surprised it wasn't me! :)

As for the tourney's, I doubt it because UNO is scheduled for late December... so at least no holiday tournaments.

UMass seems to always play us tough even in their down years and Providence is up and coming. Three road games against mid- to upper-level HE opponents isn't too shabby, and that Cape Cod game should be a good one.

Say the word "Maine" and I come out of the wood work! I heard that rumor up this way shortly after the season was over. Portland makes sense because of all the ECAC teams they usually play there plus it saves a trip to Orono. I've been saying we need HE opponents on that schedule and now with
the UConn switch and the UMass/Prov games and now maybe the good ol' Blue and White I am getting my wish. See y'all at the Bank sooner than we all think.

I, too, have heard word of a Maine road game though it hasn't been officially confirmed. That'd be fun, a different HE team. A couple new posts on the blog regarding NHL Development Camps, other than that, things are pretty slow in the QU Hockey universe. Check out the posts. http://allnightwong.blogspot.com

FYI - New recruits.

The Heisenberg site has two new recruits for 2014.
Jonah Renouf-F (2014) Milton (OJHL) 5'8 160 3-11-94
Nathan Renouf-F (2014) Milton (OJHL) 5'8 165 3-11-94

Also USHR is reporting a late recruit for this fall. Matt Lemire 5/12/91 (F) from the Junior Bruins (EJHL). Lemire had a 27-14-41 line in 45 games last season.

Apparently Rand Pecknold has become a potential candidate (http://gazettenet.com/2012/06/29/quinnipiac-hockey-coach-umass-radar) for the open UMass job.

Thanks for the tip.

New article on the blog regarding Pecknold and the interest he's drawn from Umass as well as an introduction to the Renouf twins. http://allnightwong.blogspot.com/

Good for him. Seriously. I know it's not BC or BU, but a Hockey East job is an attractive opening. For as long as he's been at Quinnipiac, all he's done is win. I'm glad he's finally getting that recognition, even if he doesn't get the job this time.

but a Hockey East job is an attractive openingI don't see it as an upgrade, maybe a lateral move at best. It seems that Rand can pretty much write his own ticket at QU. UMass has to have a few more obstacles being a state school. Of course, HE/Providence lured Lehman away from Union so anything's possible. I just don't see Rand leaving QU for a mid-pack HE team... at least not now.
