    Do we even have a TV schedule, whether regional or national? It'd be cool if they televised the Mayor's Cup on TWCS at least...

    Ah. I don't think we played national TV last year. And no, I'm not counting NBC's icebreaker streams. Regional TV I don't recall, there may have been one or two, like Freakout. It'd be nice if CHS were to mark whether it was a TV game.

    IIRC, Freakout was our only TV game in 2004-05; we won that. We had no TV games in 2005-06.

    I remember always dreading TV games when Appert came in, because we had not won one (specific teams I don't recall all of them, I remember Union somewhere in 06-08 with the zamboni incident, Freakout 08 and 09, the Cornell game in 08-09 where they started calling for Erik B's head, a Colgate game or two at Starr in that time) until AIC in 2009 (which I think was televised; I remember RPI-TV did not have the game in their archives), or Niagara in 2010. 2010-11 had at least five televised games: Niagara, BU (national), Freakout, Cornell (national) (the "just like Appert" ****fest), and North Dakota (national). 11-12 had two national games (Dartmouth during winter break, and Cornell before Freakout), while Freakout was televised regionally. That's what I recall for now.

    Alls I know is that our TV record is not very good at all. Perhaps Appert's teams have a bit of a problem when it comes to "big moments", as not only evidenced by the TV record, but also Freakout and the playoffs.

    One of RPI's two games at Michigan last year was televised on the Big Ten Network, which is available over quite a large slice of the country.

    Unfortunately, I think it was the second one, in which the Engineers got killed.

    Since Mike Addesa is not an RPI alumnus, I would think this news goes here, rather than in the alumni thread.

    The transactions column of my newspaper notes that the Canucks have announced the signing of Mike Addesa as an amateur scout.

    I think that I ask this ever year, but does anyone know when single-game tickets for the HFH go on sale?

    I spoke with someone in the HFH Box Office. She said there is no specific date set yet, but it will be sometime in the last week of September. Hope that helps...😊

    Ouch. I also remember we played at Miami in 2008-09 on one of the ESPN networks, Allen York played in net, and got creamed 7-1. The 09-10 year saw the GLI championship on regional television, obviously we lost that 6-2.

    Sadly, the number of games we have won on TV are few and far between. I believe the game at Starr where Diebold made 49 saves was on regional TV, as I recall watching it on demand a few times, including a few hot mic cusses from referees. The Dartmouth and Brown Freakouts where we won were also televised regionally, as well as winning a few of the games in the 2010-11 season. Improvements with composure would certainly help.

    The 1995 ECAC championship semis and final games were on tape delay in the middle of the night. (either USA or MSG network).
    Of course we won both of those games.
