2015-16 ECAC Hockey preseason all-star, all-rookie teams - "Along the Boards"
http://alongtheboards.com/2015/09/2015-16-ecac-hockey-preseason-all-star-and-all-rookie-teams/

FIRST ALL-STAR TEAM

Mike Vecchione, F, Union: One of two Union Dutchmen to post 50 points last season, Vecchione improved upon an already impressive freshman season with 19 goals and 31 assists in his sophomore campaign. The junior center will take inspiration from Vesey’s season last year, telling Ken Schott of the Schenectady Daily Gazette, “You look at a guy like Vesey, he dominated all the games and got 30 goals. My game needs to get to that level before I even think about moving to the next level.” Vecchione has a very good chance of at least replicating last season.

Jeff Taylor, D, Union: The Pittsburgh Penguins prospect led the Dutchmen blue line in scoring, averaging almost a point per game. Now the graduation of captain Charlie Vasaturo gives Taylor the reins to lead the Union defense in his junior season.

ALL-ROOKIE TEAM

Brett Supinski, F, Union: If their junior hockey numbers are any indication, Supinski and Sebastian Vidmar should provide the same kind of immediate impact that Spencer Foo and Ryan Scarfo did for the Dutchmen last season. Supinski put up a staggering 98 points, including 48 goals, in 58 games for the Coquitlam Express in the BCHL. Union has plenty of offensive players up front, meaning Supinski should have plenty of support.

Joe Young, G, Union: The graduation of Colin Stevens means the Dutchmen will be in search of a new No. 1 goaltender. The competition will be between Alex Sakellaropoulos, Jake Kupsky and Young. Expect one of the freshmen to grab the starter’s job and run with it, and Young is the best bet on that front.

Clarkson too high in your poll. Until we can score a lot more than 2 GPG, we're not rising much higher than 8th.

Through the first three games this year ... football is giving up on average 42 points per game. Not good. Wasn't this the year where they were going to be good because everyone was returning? This was going to be the big bounceback year? Two of the loses came against the weak WNEFC teams. Perhaps its time for the coaches to retire? St. Lawrence tomorrow.

Looks like we are playing UND on New Years Eve !!!

How cool is that !!! and a home game no-less. We will return the favor for 2 in 2017-2018

http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/und-hockey/3846534-und-mens-hockey-und-boston-college-meet-madison-square-garden

"UND also will play a single game at 2014 national champion Union College on New Year’s Eve (it is only allowed to play the one because of game limits). Union will return a trip to Grand Forks in 2017-18 for a two-game series."

Could this be a mistake on the part of the Grand Forks Herald? We already have our 12 non-conference games scheduled. Are we allowed a 13th?

That's New Years Eve next year, 2016-17. Not this year.

They just lost to St. Lawrence today at home, 42 - 23. You have to give them one thing ... they are consistent. Oh, and their starting freshmen QB left limping.

2015-16 CHN Preseason All-America Team
PRINCETON, N.J. — A look at our list of top players heading into the 2015-16 season.

(ECAC Lands three on the First Team !!!)

First Team

F Jimmy Vesey, Sr., Harvard — The Hobey finalist decided to return to last year's NCAA team for his senior season, a rarity these days. He had an NCAA-best 32 goals last season, the most by far of any returning player.

F Mike Vecchione, Jr., Union — A key contributor to the NCAA champs as a freshman, had to carry the load more as a sophomore last season, and did it admirably.

G Kyle Hayton, St. So., Lawrence — His save percentage was just .002 worse than the other top returning goaltender, Yale's Alex Lyon, last season while facing a lot more shots.

Looks like Co-Captains this year are Mike Vecchione (Jr.) and Matt Wilkins (Sr.)
Alternate (or Assistant) Captains are Jeff Taylor (Jr.) and Ryan Scarfo (So.)

The Dutchmen will be well led this year. IMO these are excellent choices.

The latest roster shows updated height and weight. I have no idea how accurate they are, but they have changed and appear more precise. http://www.unionathletics.com/roster.aspx?path=mhockey&

Sebastian Vidmar (FR.) 6'3" 190
Cole Maier (Fr.) 6'2" 195
Mark Dufour (Fr.) 6'3" 197

Cornell is again the biggest team in College Hockey (Height) followed closely by Ivy Brown and Princeton. Harvard has the tallest player. Size alone clearly does not correlate to success. It will definitely be a new look for us.

Next year we will lose Gringras and Wilkens. Can we add another top notch recruiting class?
