An amazing season has drawn to a close, so the offseason is here.

Post any offseason news and notes here.... only 6 (long?) months until the puck is dropped at Messa again.

Here's what some of Union's 2012-2013 schedule might look like

An amazing season has drawn to a close, so the offseason is here.

Post any offseason news and notes here.... only 6 (long?) months until the puck is dropped at Messa again.

Based on RPI's previously announced schedule, here's what some of Union's might look like. There's likely several OOC games not listed that aren't known yet.

11/2 – at RPI
11/3 – vs RPI
11/9 – at Harvard
11/10 – at Dartmouth
11/23 – vs Penn State (Schott reported on this possible two game series in December)
11/24 – vs Penn State
11/30 – vs Quinnipiac
12/1 - vs Princeton
12/7 – at Brown
12/8 – at Yale
TBD late December - play in Catamount Cup @ Vermont
1/11 – at Princeton
1/12 – at Quinnipiac
1/18 – vs Cornell
1/19 – vs Colgate
1/26 – RPI (non-league, possibly at Times Union Center as per Schott)
2/1 – vs Dartmouth
2/2 – vs Harvard
2/8 – at Clarkson
2/9 – at St. Lawrence
2/15 – vs Yale
2/16 – vs Brown
2/22 – at Colgate
2/23 – at Cornell
3/1 – vs St. Lawrence
3/2 – vs Clarkson

You won't be playing 2/2 vs. Harvard, given that 2/4 is one of the days of the Beanpot. That game will likely be moved.

Looks like plenty of OOC games left to schedule. So far as Zajac is concerned, good luck to him. I assume an ATO means no pay?

Correct.


Under the agreement, the player shall receive no salary, bonus (of any kind) or any other form of compensation. He does not count against the cap.

Just was thinking... it would be pretty fun if Kinkaid started in goal this weekend and Zajac played as well.

So far as I know there is still space available to the year end Banquet this Sunday. It should be a great event. http://www.unionathletics.com/news/2012/3/29/MICE_0329121734.aspx?path=mhockey

Does anyone know what recruiting is looking like for next year? Are there any signals that it is picking up? Any 6'5" forwards? Hope this year makes recruiting easier and more productive. Going to be hard to replace the leadership.

I dont know much about recruiting but according to the NHL Central Scouting website there is an incoming player who is ranked in the Top 200 draft eligible players who is committed to Union. Forgot his name.

Forgot his name.I think you're referring to Tim Boyle, younger brother of NYR Brian Boyle. Gostisbehere is also in the top 200 but of course we already have him, for the time being or at least until he puts on another 25 lbs. or so.

It was a great night. The place was packed. A fitting end to a remarkable season.:D

Now the hockey withdrawal will begin. . .I thought Jeremy Walsh's remarks were the highlight of the evening. He spoke sincerely and passionately for about 10 minutes on the program, the college and all those who had helped him to get his degree and to grow as a person and a hockey player. A great young man.
