Another pickup down the road

@OTBPuckWatch: 95 F Robbie Hennessy (Northwood) commits to Providence. Athletic, 5'10 forward has an edge, quickness and work ethic. H/T @AONEsauce11

First guess would be as an older member of the class replacing the Saracino-Gilmour class. He sound a bit like Brandon Tanev

Hello folks! Long time reader, first time poster.

I was just curious if anyone had any details the schedule for next year.

I believe that the Friars are playing 2 games @ North Dakota, and 2 games @ Ohio State.

I also believe, based upon this year's HE schedule, we play 2 games in Durham, 2 games in South Bend, and will play both games against Vermont at home. With that said, I think we will continue the traditional home and home games with BC, Northeastern, BU, UML, and UMass. I'm not sure how UConn fits into the mold since they'll be joining HE this year, correct?

I'm a fan of Nate, but after what Union has accomplished the last two years, do any of wonder what would have occurred if Driscoll tapped former Friar star player and former Friar assistant coach Rick Bennett for the job back then? Bennett's tough guy demeanor really reminds me of Lou Lamoriello when he coached the Friars.

The seniors were Nates and I assume he had some of the other players lined up before PC, Bennett did a great job now we see what he does on his own

I agree with Saty....the Union team while certainly bearing Bennett's mark after 3 years was anchored by players who Leaman brought on board....looking at the Heisenberg site, the whole junior class was all in place before Nate departed for PC which meant more than half the players who saw action in the championship were in place. I think the rebuilding job Leaman inherited was more than you would want to entrust to an untested assistant. Ricky actually has one more test to pass, that he can keep the momentum going now that this team is really all his guys. If the decision to get a new coach was today, yes it's a no brainer our first choice would be to bring Ricky home again

Ben Barr has applied at LSSU. Does anyone have any insight on his hockey coaching.

Here is his PC bio

Leaman from all reports relies on him and brought him in from Union when he arrived. He has a hand in all aspects of the program and certainly our recruiting has improved from the Army days (Berard was his op assistant) and Pooley days (there are your LSsu references

If they move Berard up to the assistant coach position, I would like to see a former Friar back as a Director of Ops...Kyle Murphy??

It seems often coaches take guys who were on their first team somewhere on their staff. Further Leaman looked highly upon him, lets face it its rare someone is captain before even playing. Last I heard was he had signed to play in Norway. That came out after graduation, whether he played I am unaware and if he is done after one year.

But I do agree with you he would be a great choice for an entry level job with a chance to move up when Barr (I suspect from the LSsu thread he's not likely to get the job) does move up and on in a year or 2.

He did play in Norway, had a great year and was one of their captains. Will be going back for another. When done, has position within family firm and will not be in hockey. Very good student and will also have other private sector jobs. His older brother, ex BC captain and current ast coach in Bakersfield would be a great canidate...

This makes me happy. Kyle was always such a nice guy, glad to see things are going well for him.

I was a classmate of Ben's at RPI. Worked on a lot of projects together. He is a great kid with an even better hockey mind. Average player, although great on the RPI teams of the early 2000's because he had to be, Ben did always like to be around the puck, but always also did the little things that were needed, Perhaps the highlight of this was when he scored two SHG on the same power play helping #11 RPI sweep #6 Union in 2003. Even better coach, started coaching youth hockey in the Troy area, was a head coach at a local high school here, volunteer asst. with RPI, then leading up to his jobs with Union and PC under Leaman. He would be an excellent hire for any program.
