I haven't been on here in a long time. Has RIT announces any future out of conference games for the future season(s)?

There's one pair of games to add in 2019-2020: UMass-Lowell at RIT for two. When we first listed the games, we weren't clear on the fact that the Icebreaker games do not count against your total, so RIT will get 36 NCAA games that season.

Recruiting is the key. Getting very difficult to ask players/parents to pay $200k plus to play hockey. Soon the tuition cost will out weight the desire to play D1 hockey. I believe we are seeing a small taste of it now. When Sacred Heart comes into the GP, has more determination, grit and desire to win then the home team. That's a problem, a big one.

High tuition costs, Lowest league in Division 1 , 2 losing seasons with 1st round home playoff loses....Game day environment at GP-Friendly and fun for visiting team......at Ritter-Intimidating, threatening and an advantage.

A lot of money goes into the program....if there is not a change in wins.... then there needs to be some sort of a change else where.....

Going back to D3 should not be an option....Something with cost of attending the school, scholarship, endowment $ towards finacial aid which player does not have to pay back (Union does this), different league.......

endowment $ towards finacial aid which player does not have to pay back (Union does this)

Unfortunately, since such money can't be targeted at athletes, it would have to be available to a much larger segment of the student population. And since Union only has 2,200 students, it's a lot cheaper to do that for them than for RIT.

I still think Rocky Perrotta deserves the Dr. Albert J. Simone Distinguished Service Award but they steadfastly refuse to give it to him. I wonder if he's refused it or something.

I know of one fine gentleman, a current student and non-athlete, who would be more-than-happy to "take one for the team", and accept an award of equal value offered to a talented recruit. :D

Thanks Turk, He has lived,breathed and slept RIT hockey for the past four years and still managed to clutter my refrigerator door with Deans list letters.

Powers &8^]I'm sure they will get to him. His name is still in there with, I think both Chris and Ed have not received it yet. The AD, Coaches, players, and administrators all apperciate the many people who give so much for RIT hockey.

All in good time...

Chris, Ed, and Randy were the first recipients of the award in its inaugural year. Scott got it last year.

I wonder what the odds are to see Abbott taking a shot against RMU and his brother is playing for RMU trying to block it. EP lists Aidan also at 190lbs as Abbott is listed but Aidan is 6’4”, Abbott is 6’1”. Going to be some fun times for that family. Hope we get to see them on the ice at the same time this year. Congrats Erik and Abbott on the “C” sweaters.

Len Perno joins RIT men's hockey staff as volunteer goaltending coach
ROCHESTER, NY – Head Coach Wayne Wilson announced that Len Perno will join the RIT men's hockey staff as volunteer goaltending coach for the 2018-19 season.

Perno comes to RIT after serving as an assistant coach at nearby SUNY Geneseo for the last five seasons. The Knights won two SUNYAC titles and made three trips to the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament during his tenure. Perno worked with Geneseo's goaltenders, while assisting in day-to-day practice and game preparation.

"Len has great qualifications and will be a great addition to our stuff," said Wilson. "He will help in all facets of our game, in particular with our goaltenders. I look forward to working with him on our staff."

A Rochester native, Perno played three seasons for the Rochester Junior Americans before heading to Oswego State. He played two seasons for the Lakers, earning the Oswego State Fan's Choice Award in 1992-93. Perno received his bachelor's degree in public justice and a minor in athletic coaching from Oswego in 1995.

From there, Perno played three seasons at the professional level with the Reno Renegades of the West Coast Hockey League (WCHL), Knoxville of the ECHL and the Binghamton Rangers and hometown Rochester Americans of the America Hockey League (AHL).

Perno is also a USA Hockey Level 4 Certified coach.

Thanks West, that is indeed the same article that I read.

Good for RIT to make a change and mix things up a bit in the coaching staff to shore up the goaltending.
