Pietila's second year USHL numbers were pretty solid. Even his rookie year numbers were respectable in that league.

I expect he'll compete for the job. We'll see where it goes.

Upperclassmen are stronger and faster and harder this year right?Yes.

Ya, BSU's win in 2016-17 says defense does win championships... sometimes... when M. Bitzer is in goal. That said, the other years listed say offense wins and I agree.

Tech and BG might be a little different in goals required to win. I've observed over a few seasons that BG wins when it scores 3 or more or gives up 2 or fewer.

BG 2018-2019 WCHA regular season
Record when
Scoring 3 or more: 13-0-2
Scoring 2 or fewer: 3-8-2 <== Here's the problem
Allowing 2 or fewer: 15-2-2
Allowing 3 or more: 1-6-2
Might have something to do with that horrible style of play you use.

The first Joe Shawhan Hour of the season is now scheduled for September 30 at 9am.

It will originate live from the Tervo Agency in downtown Hancock, so expect a guest appearance from agent and former Huskies forward Jeff Mikesch in the show.

Something tells me that pattern of wins and losses and goals scored and allowed is pretty consistent across college hockey. It has been as long as I can remember.

for once I agree with you...score 3 goals and you win most of the time, dont and you lose most of the time.

Is it possible, since the season is starting in what two weeks, that we might somehow get a date for the GLi?

You actually need two dates. ;)

Not publicly announced yet, but I can confirm through an unnamed MTU official that December 30-31 are the dates.

Don't look now, but son-of-a-Congressman Levi Stauber has 5 goals in his first 5 BCHL games. He had 8 goals in 41 games last year in the NAHL.

Evan Orr is also in his first BCHL season, and has a goal and an assist in his first two games.

All of our other recruits are playing in the states (Alex Nordstrom TBD - hopefully he makes Fargo's roster).

Lastly, former Calumet Copper Kings Brent Loukus and Sam Erkkila are trying to follow Nordstrom's path by playing for Grande Prairie (AJHL).

Rumored that David Raisanen (Minot/NAHL) will be coming to Tech.

One more potential recruit of note: Dawson McKay was an honorable mention for BCHL Player of the Week, scoring 3 goals in 2 games for Powell River. I can't imagine he'd need scholarship money to come home. Only question is whether he's good enough.

Looks like two big size/strength guys. If they have the skill to play, they would be nice additions.

Hi all, can you tell me what ever happened to the idea of a Houghton outdoor series VS. the UM Ice Wolves?

These NAHL guys tend to be late-blooming projects. Joe probably sees the 6'5"/227 stat, and thinks he's coachable.
