It is possible then. Glenn was from Plattsburgh.

Wasn't Glenn the only recruit we added his year-until Brad Tapper joined the list and we then had only 2?

For some reason I thought he was a mid year addition, but I'm probably wrong on that...I do remember that Glenn knew how to hit...back in the days the league actually allowed it :D

The bright side of the equation has that Coach Appert must be doing a great job of teaching his charges the proper skills so that they can move on to their chosen profession.

Schedule on the RPI website now shows the game vs New Brunswick, but its on Tuesday, Oct. 5th instead of that Saturday like the ECAC website was showing.

http://www.rpiathletics.com/schedule.aspx?path=hockey&

UNB is at UVM Sunday 10/3. No sign yet of the RPI game on the UNB site ... So if the RPI site is correct, UNB will drive south to UMass 10/2 for a 4PM, then back north to UVM for a 10/3 4PM and then back south to RPI for a 10/5 7PM....wow.

Watched practice last night. Splits, forwards first part and then D-Men later part. Rogic really impressed me. He is low center of gravity guy who has speed to burn, He has decent size too. I think he will be able to win battles in ECAC. Koudys is big and very mobile. I was impressed with the way he moved and he is big (stud). He is certainly going to be drafted. We are going to like him alot. Bailen, IME might be the best skater on the team, lateral movement is outstanding. Bailen to me looks like a kid who will be able to be a force on the PP. I really like this class. Koudys and Rogic are the cream of it but all the frosh look good. And BTW WS... I did not see Pirri:D Apparently he had a prior engagement :p

I don't know the circumstances of Harkenrider's departure. Coupal was one of the goalies on RPI's club team last year. He actually attended Seton High in Plattsburgh as an int'l student...certainly possible that he is related to Glenn C...nephew, cousin, etc.

Hey, sweet, I'm not the only person that remembers that Glenn Coupal (and Jim Palmer, the most beloved practice goalie I can recall) went to Seton Catholic. :D

I am pretty sure that he came at the beginning of the year. Perhaps he didn't see any ice time until later. I would have to look. He was indeed the only other member of that class besides Tapper.

Yes, that's why I threw Seton in there....I should have pointed that out for the short haired kids...:D :D :)

I know Seton Catholic, I was actually pretty close to going there; had actually gone to one of its middle school counterparts (back when it was a 9-12 school). Didn't like the constant travel, though, so I decided to stay closer to home.

Unfortunately I didn't know about Glenn Coupal. :(

Thanks greatly for the report.

Pirri had an engagement after the wedding? He does things backwards. :D

Sweet deal on the three games being Free for season ticket holders. Now I wait to see when they actually process my order form. Should be interesting to see UNB, I hear they are a better than average canadian team.

Not too surprising; I think it's pretty common for the Canadian teams, when coming south to play exhibitions, to do 2 or 3 in a row to make the most of the trip. I recall in the past couple seasons some of the teams the men and women played had several games back-to-back at different schools.

Obviously I don't want to pry into the pay games because of all the complications that have previously been discussed, but will RPI-TV be doing a stream of the scrimmage by any chance? It'd be nice to get a first pre-season look at the players.

Too bad, I would've had you smack him in the back of the head for all of us...:D

No, it wasn't the games I was noting but the distances/locations...700 miles south to Amherst, then 190 miles north to Burlington (the border), then 130 miles back south to Troy...that's a lot of doubling back on one road trip...I'm sure the US schedules required it this way.

We've gotten the bad news that all live streaming will be done via B2. I'd like to shoot this exhibition game, and we may end up shooting the Red and White game as well, but nothing's solid at this point. All games will still be available for on demand viewing from our website.
