    This could turn out to be a great hire. In all honesty I wish RPI would’ve gotten him. Hockey is in his blood. He did a fantastic job when he was the HC here ay Albany Academy. I remember telling Ralph back then to keep an eye on this guy because he has D1 HC written all over him.....
    Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

    I agree, his father coached Army for nineteen years, this is great news. Looks like another great goalie coming too, Gyllander playing in the National Junior tournament and ranked #12 in the draft coming up.

    I was never impressed by Harder, not putting all the blame on him, but. HTH did Riley's team go 16-8 in his first year, and Wilkes first year ? Very Impressive, and what a bloodline !

    And an "almost" positive reply by Greencoat, say it ain't so. Pinch me !

    His grandfather coached Army for thirty five years and coached the Olympic team to a gold medal in Squaw Valley in 1960.

    Carter Gyllander goalie picked by Detroit #191 fifth pick seventh round. He's 6 feet 5 inches, you can't teach size !

    I fully agree with Turk's comments. Through my grandson who is a student at AA and a hockey player, I saw first-hand the work of Brett during his coaching years, turning a decent prep program into a powerhouse. Relates well to players and is a good skills coach as well as a tactician. Developed several DI players for Yale, Maine, Sacred Heart and D3 programs. In 5-7 years he will be a D1 head coach.

    Re: Colgate 2018-19

    I sent in my season ticket deposit today.

    My strategy last season was all Colgate games, home and away. I missed two away weekends (Dartmouth/Harvard, Princeton/Quinnipiac).

    My strategy this season will be all Colgate home games and all non-conference away games. Plus, I plan to make the Friendship Four tourney, and new NCAA D-1 men’s hockey arenas (for me). Lifetime, I have seen hockey played in 98 different arenas.

    Currently I am pursuing my other (off-season) passion... short-track auto racing, of which I have seen at 411 different tracks, lifetime. I am in the midst of 26 races in 32 days at 25 different dirt tracks in Illinois and surrounding states. Rain has been replaced by hot-n-humid corn-n-soybean growing weather.

    Go ‘Gate.

    You should go see the Gate' women hockey team play...it's free and exciting hockey....team wins more than the men too and they deserve bigger crowds to support them!

    WH Fan,
    I appreciate the thought, but I am just not into it. I have seen it at Minnesota, Wisconsin and Clarkson, and I just don’t care for it. I am only passionate about D-1 men’s college hockey; everything else (women’s, D-3, NHL, minor leagues, juniors) leaves me wanting. I guess everyone is different, which is probably a good thing. Anyway, thanks for the thought.

    I've based my winter travel plans on when Men's hockey has home games since we bought our house in Hamilton. This year, I'm thinking hoops & women's hockey may take precedence. Wish that wasn't true...

    My heart is heavy as I write that long time Colgate employee and men's hockey fan, Ron Baker, age 54 has died. He was diagnosed with cancer and was gone less than a week later. He leaves his beloved family - Tina, Jake and Matt along with many, many friends. He and his family were diehard hockey fans, never missing a home game and always followed the team to Lake Placid. They were loved by team members and their families for many years. Ron was a wonderful man and will be sorely missed.

    Did anybody on here participate in (or just attend) the Colgate hockey golf tourney activities this past weekend? How did things go? Did the forecasted excessive heat play a factor in the activities? Just curious. Thanks!

    IOWA - I attended the dinner on Saturday night. Though the weather was brutal, all made it through 18 holes with no issues. It was wonderful to see the guys - from Terry McLaughlin ('60s) through Bruce Racine '18! Ben Bryce and Tyler Burton do a fabulous job putting the weekend together.
