If you like cold wait till you go to Brown.....Wear your fur lined undies !!!!

We have been to most of the venues in the east and a few in the midwest-Princeton's Baker rink has usually been the coldest. Teeth chattering by the end of the first period even with a flask of Ultimat Vodka.;)

At Baker Rink make sure to wear your fur coat. Jenny will have hers and I might even be wearing one. Back in the 80's and 90's, the temperature in the stands at HFH varied incredibly. Of course always colder down closer to the ice but up around row K you would start to feel much warmer. There were times that it was actually hot up above that seating level. The worst fog condition on the ice we ever saw was the championship game of the RPI tournament in 1984(I believe it was against University of Toronto). The officials would stop the game and have the players just skate around to disperse the fog. I do recall that even though it was December, the temperature outside that night in Troy was in the 70's for awhile. Hobey Baker rink never varies-it is always frigid.:)

Hobey Baker rink is always cold because Princeton folks are cold hearted. :D

I found this CHL promotional video on youtube which shows some clips from each team in the league. Current RPI freshman Guy Leboeuf is shown scoring two goals off one-timers around the 9:15 mark during the Cornwall part of the video. Thats a heck of a shot, I hope to see alot of that this year.

10. (9) Brandon Pirri, C, 19
Drafted 2nd round, 59th overall, 2009

Brandon Pirri became the most recent prospect to join the organization when he signed his entry-level contract after just his freshman season at RPI. The talented center finished second on the Engineers in scoring with 11 goals, 32 assists for 43 points in 39 games. Coupled with Jerry D'Amigo's contract with Toronto, the Engineers have quickly lost two blue-chip freshman from last season's class and two of the team's top three scorers.

The 19-year-old has excellent hands and is a creative puck handler. He is a good passer with great awareness, making him a dangerous playmaker. He was a solid faceoff guy for Rensselaer, but his defensive zone play could use some work. A move to wing may not be out of question for Pirri, especially given his smaller stature at 160 pounds. His lack of discipline was also a problem last season as he was overly aggressive at times, finishing near the team lead with 65 penalty minutes.

Like Leddy, Pirri's sudden jump to the pro level was a little sooner than expected. He will be a player to keep an eye on in Rockford as he adjusts to the pro game.

Now that I have started a recruit thread, this thread seems to be stagnating. :( ;)

We'll need a 2010-11 thread soon anyway. Any title suggestions?

It was bound to slow down-we are closing in on the season and the news has come slowly. Should any news on Pirri or D'Amigo now go on the Alumni thread? :confused:

Really, it should, but of course they didn't graduate, so they are in limbo as far as USCHO's boards are concerned. :D

On the other hand-they can't come back either. I suggest we move any further posting about them to the alumni thread-and retain this thread for those who who are still part of the team.

It's not really all that much of anything, but CHN in their top 10 preseason poll prediction has also added us as the "team to watch" in the ECAC. Unfortunately most of it is due to the fact of our early departures. :(
