    30 wins, a Hockey East Championship, a Hobey winner, and a spot in the National Title game. A massive step forward year in many, many ways. Congrats.

    Congrats on a great year and a deep run in the tourney. UMD has a great team; nothing to hang your head over.
    A bad cause requires many words.

    And as expected, Cale Makar signs with the Avalanche with an entry level contract:

    Re: UMass is NewMass

    Made the following post on umasshoops, but figured I would share it here as well:

    Unreal run by the guys this year. With this amazing season now in the books, one thing we can do to pass the seemingly endless time that is the offseason is talk about how the team will shake out for next year. Cale is obviously gone, along with Boeing, Keats, and Pritchard, but I think (and hope?) that we can expect most of the team back. For forward lines and D pairs, that leaves (based on the lines to end this season):

    Chau-Gaudet-Chaffee
    Trivigno-Lagunov-????
    Leonard-????-Hildenbrand
    ADG-Suter-????

    MDG-????
    Ferraro-Farmer
    McLaughlin-Felix

    Incoming, it seems that we have the following guys for sure coming in...

    Forwards: Jeremy Davidson, Reed Lebster, Ryan Sullivan, Peyton Reeves, Eric Faith
    Defense: Zac Jones, Gianfranco Cassaro

    Then there are the following names that still appear to be committed but I haven't seen or heard much about recently (maybe someone else [FTT? Marshmont?] can confirm their status)...

    Forwards: Marko Reifenberger, Alex DiPaolo, Khristian Acosta
    Defensemen: Jayson Dobay

    Bobby Kaiser, who was pretty effective in limited action at the beginning of the season, will also be back. And, given the success he has had with grad transfers the past two seasons with Rufo and Pritchard, there is always the possibility that Carvel goes that route again too.

    So, with these seemingly the options to work with, my best guess as of today would be something like this for lines and defense pairings:

    Chau-Gaudet-Chaffee
    Trivigno-Lagunov-Leonard
    Lebster-Davidson-Hildenbrand
    ADG-Sullivan-Kaiser

    Ferraro-Farmer
    McLaughlin-MDG
    Jones-Felix

    These D pairs would provide a little more balance in terms of one offensive-minded defenseman and one more stay-at-home guy. If Carvel wanted to keep the McLaughlin-Felix pair together as a third pairing, could use MDG-Jones as a pure offense pairing as well. I think Ferraro, assuming he stays, will explode next year.

    Going with these lines, that leaves the following names as scratches: Suter, Mika, Faith, Reeves, Bozzo, Vegara, Cassaro

    There is also obviously the possibility that we see some unexpected departures, whether to the NHL or kids leaving due to an expected lack of future playing time, etc. Sounds like we are one of the finalists to land Gunnar Fontaine too, a forward who would presumably be coming next year and would be a big get. So we will see what happens there. All in all, there is a lot to look forward to next year, and I would love to see any thoughts y'all have on the future roster composition, or any thoughts in general on the 2019-2020 season. Go UMass!

    Makar scores his first NHL goal in first period of his first game on his first shot.

    And great line by the commentator (I think it was Ray Ferraro): "I don't know what he dreams about, but it can't be any better than this!" And cool shot of his parents in the stands; his Dad taking pictures with his phone with the "UMass" sticker on the back.

    An astonishing 72 hours for Cale Makar. I'm so glad I stayed up to watch last night's first period. Awesome.
    It Happened!!!!
