I saw the Lamoureux family mentioned. Also both of the Parises. No mention of the Toews brothers though. :)

For North Dakota...at least recently that I can think of:
Panzer
Genoway
Toews
Parise
Zajac
Jones
Hale
Lundbohm
Lamoureux

I'm sure there have been many, many more. :p

It seems like every year about 1/3 of our team has had a relative that played at UND.

Bryce Geoffrion has committed to Alabama-Huntsville for next season. Given his hometown of Brentwood, Tenn., it is safe to assume he is the brother of current Charger Sebastian Geoffrion.

I don't know if it's been mentioned because I didn't read the whole thread, but Brown's Jarred Smith is the brother of Miami's Brandon.

And, to my knowledge, they are both brothers of the Hobey Baker Award winner. :)

Two Smiths who are brothers. What are the odds??

For PC:
The Cavanaughs
...

Are they cousins or brothers?

And I believe the Cavanaughs' dads both played for Harvard.

Not long ago we had the Ortmeyer brothers from Omaha.

UNO has Matt Ambroz and his Brother Seth will play for the Gophers starting next year. A few years back Brent Kisio played for UNO and his brother played for the purple cows. Nenad Gajic played for UNO and he had a brother who played at one of the Michigan schools. David Graham and his brother Christian both played for UNO. The name Sigalet rings a bell one played for Bowling Green. Maybe someone else can recall better.

Bruno - that I can think of to add to the list.

There were also twins Kelly and Karl Burns '88 from Brown - and on Whittet's teams there were the Humber twins, Charlie and Scott '96.

Lowell has had a couple including the Campbell's (three brothers IIRC) and the Fontas' brothers (and their cousin came in as well).

In 2011, Bill Eiserman will be joining the UML team, and his younger brother Chris (a highly rated 2012 goalie) will also be coming there. Their father had played for ULowell back in the 80s.

I don't think anyone mentioned the Angers-Goulet brothers of RPI on this thread yet. Matt was 2005-09 (captain his senior year), and Alex is 2008-Present.

It is my understanding that there are 11 sets of brothers on NCAA Division 1 Hockey teams. For the most part one of the two is a force on a team. Is it likely that the older one was recruited with the younger one in mind as well? How often is the older one the dominant brother? At BC we have seen recently the Greene brothers with Matt playing an important role on a championship team while older brother Justin played sparingly. Yet now BC has the Whitney brothers both have been high on assists, Joe an accomplished Junior star with 18 points and Steven a talented freshman who shows plenty of potential with 10 points. Another pair of brothers doing very well are the Zanettes of Niagara University. With 14 and 12 points Paul the junior and Marc the freshman are scoring and assisting rather evenly. Are these two pairs the exceptions or are they more the rule for brothers on a team?
it was my understanding that BU recruited older brother Victor Saponari ('11) to attract younger brother Vinny Saponari ('12) to the terriers

Are Alex and John twins? If they are, it'd sure have a chance of giving new meaning to "which goalie will show up tonight". :D

Army has starting Goalie Jay Clark, a Junior, and Defenseman John Clark, a Freshman who played on the 1st Defensive pairing.
