    Mr. Namestnikov has quite the hockey pedigree - including father (NHL's Rangers). Each MSU coach seems to have had blue-chippers, and each their share who've bolted for the OHL (Comley's Duschene, Anastos' Josh Bailey, Cole's Afanasyev), so the fact remains the trick is to enroll them at this here institution.

    WCHA schedule released today. As expected we play at NMU. No other WCHA team is on our schedule. So...There is a series against a different team than last year to be announced.

    24 conference games
    2 vs Cornell
    2 vs ASU
    2 at NMU
    2 GLI

    Technically Cornell and ASU are tentative but we all seem confident on those. No Alaska trips with the WCHA out, which also means no Ferris or BG. I think WMU already came out with their schedule, but if they havenít the rumors sound like Michigan rather than us on the schedule. I believe the exemption tournaments have already been announced as well which leaves us with just one series left.

    I think it would be cool to bring Army or Air Force in for a series.

    That would be cool. I actually hope we pull in a weak AHA or ECAC team or something. We tend to err towards difficult non-cons over the years and then we end up struggling to get to .500 by Christmas break. Letís take a page out of PSUís book and schedule some games we be all accounts should win.

    Forgot to mention that captains for next year have been named.

    Saliba and Apap will wear Cís while Rosberg and Khodorenko will wear Aís. While Appleton did leave after being named Captain I take this as a good sign that Khodorenko intends to stick around.

    Colorado College is the final series, provided we're seeing Cornell and ASU at Munn.

    Schedule should be:

    vs Arizona State x2
    vs Cornell x2
    at Colorado College x2
    at Northern Michigan x2
    vs Tech (GLI)
    vs Ferris/Michigan (GLI)
    vs/at Michigan x4 (2 Munn/1 Yost/1 LCA)
    vs/at Minnesota x 4
    vs/at Notre Dame x4
    vs/at Ohio State x4
    vs/at Penn State x4
    vs/at Wisconsin x4
    Go Green! Go White! Go State!

    Go Tigers, Go Packers, Go Red Wings, Go Pistons

    Nice.

    After I read this last night I had a vague memory of watching a game at Munn not involving MSU as a child. I remember the team with a tiger logo and cheering for them since Tigers were my favorite animal. I explored and found they lost to Michigan in a regional hosted at Munn in 1996. Pretty wild the random stuff that can stand out. Thatís all iíve got on Colorado College.

    Anyways, that would be pretty cool if Munn could host regionals again. Iíd go see whatever games were there.

    That CC-Skunk game was the final in Cincinnati, not at Munn. The Skunks played Minnesota for the right to advance from the regional in their only game at Munn in '96.

    Ah, youíre right. I checked again and it was an earlier game in the tournament where they played UMass Lowell at Munn. CC at Munn reunion in 2020 probably!

    Anyways, we signed Jagger Joshua today. Thstís probably it for forwards. Maybe weíll bring in a D but itís not a necessity. I would think that Cole would want to bring in more of his recruits to start balancing the classes but who knows. Heís been put in a fairly unfortunate numbers situation in that respect.

    ASU says theyíre coming here on October 25th and 26th. Football is also home to PSU on the 26th, so either theyíre fully planning on a noon kickoff or that series is going to change to Thursday/Friday or Friday/Sunday.

    That also means weíre keeping our conference bye week unless Cornell is coming post Christmas.

    I suspect the conference bye week will be the U-18 team.

    Hearing weíre just not going to have a schedule this year. Some weekends we will just be at Munn and see if another team shows up and other weekends we will go somewhere else and see if theyíre in town and not playing anyone else. Pretty dumb way of doing things if you ask me.

    Admittedly a schedule would be good by now vs. promoting Krug's SCF production. But if the program's so fixated on Krug, how about announcing a similar dman recruit for the 2019-20 season? I'm a bit surprised they would go into the upcoming season with 8 dmen, two of whom saw no-to-limited action last season. But that's just me.

    Iím hearing no additional adds for this year are expected.

    As for the other two points I can only speculate. It looks like they are happy with the current top 6 dmen and would prefer to have the dmen in the pipeline to spend next year playing regularly in the USHL. Expect 3 dmen in 2020.

    As far as the schedule, we know who we will be playing (B10, NMU, ASU, Cornell, CC, Great Lakes Invite) with the exception of exhibitions....the details will come before September.

    Conference schedule is out. It looks like the LCA game will be Monday the 17th of February?

    Also looks like the first series against Michigan is the same weekend as football, so Iím sure thatíll get pushed to a Thursday/Friday.

    Interesting they didn't reveal the entire schedule when we already know their OOC opponents and the rest of the big ten teams revealed their entire schedules. I guess they don't know exactly when they play them yet.

    Without knowing Cornellís schedule, the only weekends the that work around the conference schedule are Dec 13-14, Jan 3-4 and Jan 31-Feb 1.

    So that, exhibitions, and some moves due to football are whatís stopping release. I swear weíve somehow run into more conflicts with football and basketball since the Big Ten started, which makes zero sense.

    If those are the only 3 possible dates ... it has to be dec 13-14 as Cornell is in ice Vegas tourney Jan 3-4 and ecac games Jan 31-feb 1.

    There could also be an October date or early November, but I couldnít remember the non-con dates.

    Re: Spartan Hockey 2018-2019 - Preparing for Glory

    Now that I've had some time to look at the other schedules, here's what we have:

    10/11-10/12: @ Northern Michigan
    10/25-10/26: @ Colorado College
    10/25-10/26: vs. Arizona State
    Unless we're doing split squad, something here clearly has to change.
    11/8-11/9: @ Penn State
    11/15-11/16: @/vs Michigan
    11/23-11/24: vs Notre Dame
    11/30-12/1: @ Ohio State (interesting, both B1G series this weekend are Sat/Sun)
    12/6-12/7: vs Wisconsin
    Christmas-New Years: GLi vs Tech and Ferris/Michigan
    1/10-1/11: vs Minnesota
    1/17-1/18: @ Wisconsin
    1/24-1/25: vs Penn State
    2/7-2/8: @ Minnesota
    2/14 & 2/17: vs/LCA Michigan
    2/21-2/22: vs Ohio State
    2/28-2/29: @ Notre Dame

    TBD:
    Cornell x2
    Canadian exhibition
    USA U-18 exhibition

    Due to the 26th of October being a home football game, I'd assume that's when we go to Colorado, but ASU looks busy every weekend we'd be open except for 12/14-12/15, and that's typically been the U18 exhibition. Meanwhile, CC is open the first weekend in October and that first weekend in January. Plus we still have to fit Cornell in somewhere.
    Go Green! Go White! Go State!
