Time for the 2013-2014 thread.

Last year we started with a post about ____. How about this year with incoming recruits. Below is a link to Chris H's 2013 list for Brown. Looks like it could be a large class. Euler, when will we know who finally enrolls in the Fall?

We have some unfinished business. Last year (yes, it's time to start referring to 2012-13 as last year) was a great stride forward, but there's more to accomplish. I do hope we won't see any sort of regression in 2013-14, as teams often do after their first deep playoff run.

Goaltending is the biggest concern I have at this point. We'd better hope Joe Mello can do what Borelli did, coming out of nowhere his senior season! ;)

Kyle Kramer and possibly Davey Middleton should help in the goal-scoring department. A year ago I kept repeating that Mark Naclerio was the "sleeper" in that recruiting class, which was confirmed by his excellent play for most of the year and especially down the stretch. This year I'd like to call attention to Zack Pryzbek. Pryzbek is not a natural goal scorer, but he's a big, skilled, tough kid, who plays the game much like Garnett Hathaway. He's also the kind of intelligent, articulate young man who usually thrives at Brown.

It's going to be difficult for a young defenseman to crack the regular line-up, what with six experienced defensemen returning plus Nate Widman, who missed most of this past season but is projected as a top-three defender. Tyler Wood probably has the best chance but maybe one of the other two incoming defensemen will surprise us, as Brandon Pfeil did this year.

Goaltender Tyler Steel had a great season with the Merritt Centennials of the BCHL.

Next year's captains have been named.
http://brownbears.com/sports/m-hockey/2013-14/releases/20130508c3lecn

Head men's hockey coach Brendan Whittet '94 has announced that rising senior Dennis Robertson (Fort St. John, British Columbia) will serve as the Bears' captain for 2013-14 as voted on by his peers. Robertson, who was also Brown's captain this past season, will be joined in leading the Bears by three assistant captains – rising seniors Garnet Hathaway (Kennebunkport, Maine) and Mark Hourihan (Lynnfield, MA), and rising junior Matt Lorito (Oakville, Ontario). ...

Below are some links about Kyle Kramer (Nanaimo Clippers), who'll be a freshman at Brown next fall. He's been named the top forward in the Western Canada Cup tournament.

Robertson was an outstanding captain as a junior, and his re-election was a no-brainer. Hathaway, Hourihan and Lorito are excellent choices to serve as assistant captains.

He certainly looks like a worthy successor to Anthony Borelli. The college commitments of the BCHL players for next year, including its all-star teams, show this is a very strong league.

I don't know why this didn't register until now, but we get the first crack at the national champions this season. That's a pretty cool way to kick off a new year.

BROWN LOSES ASSISTANT COACH MIKE SOUZA TO THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT

It has been announced that Brown's second assistant Mike Souza has accepted an assistant coach position at the University of Connecticut, joining the staff of newly-hired head coach Mike Cavanaugh. Both appointments are terrific. Cavanaugh (Bowdoin graduate) was one of the top associate coaches in the country at Boston College. Mike Souza (UNH graduate) is a great strategist and recruiter.

Good luck to Mike, and thanks to him for his excellent job on behalf of the Brown hockey program over the past couple of years.

Any word on who the new asst candidates are?

As far as I know, some pretty good young candidates are interested in this position. This is a very good job for a young coach. The Brown program has made big strides in a positive direction, and it's hard to think of two better people to work with than Head coach Brendan Whittet and Associate Coach Mark White.

It shouldn't take too long for an announcement, assuming that HR doesn't drag the process.

It's not shocking that Souza went a different direction. He is going to be the top assistant with Cavanaugh at UConn, and the investment is that the AHA program is being treated as if they're a Hockey East program. One thing nobody can take away from UConn is that they're going to act like BC, even if they're not quite there. They've done a good job, and Coach Souza is stepping into the right situation, especially since this year is going to be a fresh start for the Huskies after what happened last year with Coach Marshall and Coach Berard.

That said, I wouldn't be shocked if Brendan looked for some young whipper snapper (yeah I said it) to fill out his roster. Whitey has really come on as his right hand man, so they'll need to get a new coach with some radical ideas (radical meaning someone you haven't heard of). Before Brown, few college hockey people knew about Souza. It was his first coaching position after years in the Italian league and the AHL. All anyone knew was that he spent 4 years at UNH and couldn't crack through the AHL ceiling. He was also exceptionally young at 33 when he came to Brown. So I wouldn't be shocked if they took the same approach.

Mark White was 32 when he came to Brown as well, the year before Coach Souza.
