    From what I understand, it's 2017-19, similar to how they were determine in 2017 based on 2015-17. Either way, we should have more information about what the actual algorithm is so we can better predict the opponents in future years, even if this is by reverse engineer.

    The Connecticut Tournament will also be taking place next year according to the article, so I've marked as such.

    I originally typed Union instead of UConn in CT tournament. Sorry for the confusion.

    The town of Union yes. The university, no. They do seem to own CT competition, however.

    I assumed you meant UCONN when you mentioned a Connecticut Tournament, not to mention that's what was in the article. I doubt they'll be calling it a "beanpot", though. I do, however, look forward to more info on the format (wouldn't be surprised if they go set opponents and SHU/UCONN play another non-conference), and I'm always in support of seeing teams play somewhat local competition non-conference (e.g. how Denver and CC always give Air Force a game, Dartmouth/UNH, Providence/Brown, Minnesota and Michigan's NC play as of late, Harvard in the Beanpot, etc.).

    I presume UConn is essentially reviving their old holiday invitational from their Atlantic Hockey days? The UConn Hockey Classic? It was called Frozen Holiday Classic in its last year, if I remember right.

    Also, after a second consultation, I heard Western Michigan will indeed have another home-and-home with Michigan. But even more interesting - the holiday tournament (not the Ice Breaker) they are participating in will not be the Desert Classic at ASU. Instead it will apparently be something new that is being held in Anaheim! Anybody out there hear any news about this at their school?

    It's not a revival of UCONN's tournament, as that was an invitational that they also happened to use for a conference game. This one looks to be very specific to the Connecticut teams, as I'd say it's completely different.

    The only thing I've seen thus far about college hockey in Anaheim is a juniors showcase in August. However, if it looks like the state might be serious about promoting college hockey for their players, it wouldn't surprise me if a college out there would use a tournament to gather information on support of a team.

    This was mentioned (unsourced but confident) on another WMU board several months ago but its weird that there's no info about it. Closest thing was a Jan '18 women's tournament at Honda Center.

    SLU went to Minnesota x 2 this season. We're going to Madison and we owe Michigan Tech a visit.

    Somehow I doubt they will, seeing how the Mariucci is back.

    Re: The 2019-20 Schedules Thread

    Here's what the HEA standings look like thus far in terms of who the opponents could be:


    Team 17-18 18-19 Gms Rem Total Max Points
    Northeastern 33 27 3 60 66
    Boston Coll 36 21 3 57 63
    Providence 30 26 3 56 62
    Boston Univ 28 24 3 52 58
    Mass Amherst 20 32 3 52 58
    Mass Lowell 22 27 3 49 55
    Maine 23 24 2 47 51
    Connecticut 23 12 3 35 41
    New Hampshire 15 19 3 34 40
    Vermont 18 12 2 30 34
    Merrimack 16 10 2 26 30


    There will likely be fluctuation in 2-5, but the order should be fairly close to this.

    Re: The 2019-20 Schedules Thread

    So I did a little more analysis on the HEA situation, and I think I have to re-neg on the Close/High/Middle/Low setup. Here's what it was for the previous two years, when you consider total points minus any games involving Notre Dame:


    Rank Team Opponents (By Rank) 15-16 16-17 Total
    1 Mass Lowell 2 5 6 9 25 37 62
    2 Boston Coll 1 3 8 10 33 27 60
    3 Providence 2 4 7 11 31 26 57
    4 Boston Univ 3 7 8 10 26 27 53
    5 Northeastern 1 6 7 9 23 20 43
    6 Vermont 1 5 8 9 15 23 38
    7 Merrimack 3 4 5 11 17 20 37
    8 Connecticut 2 4 6 11 16 18 34
    9 New Hampshire 1 5 6 10 14 17 31
    10 Maine 2 4 9 11 12 12 24
    11 Mass Amherst 3 7 8 10 8 3 11


    There's an obvious pattern going on here, and I'll try to detail it:
    Draw all teams by lot for 1-3, and again for 9-11. There's one 3 and one 9 left, which are drawn from the respective pools of the teams who were drawn to play 1 and 11. Then draw 4 and 8; looks like it's coming from the respective first-time 2-3 and 9-10 drawn pools,I don't have enough info yet to tell if you could see 1,4 or 8,11. The rest of 5-7 look to just go by lot based on who's left.

    This would have to be why BU and UMASS got such a relatively easy schedule, yet UNH, UCONN, and Merrimack were relatively difficult.

    EDIT: There is another hypothesis for the first two draws: In order to prevent teams playing themselves on the first draws, 2 is automatically given 1 and 3, while 10 is automatically given 9 and 11, and then they draw, which would mean you don't have the leftover 3 and 9 since they're already allocated. However, I don't yet have enough information for this; hopefully this year will bring more.

    Re: The 2019-20 Schedules Thread

    UMD's probable non-conference schedule:

    vs UML (would assume it's the October 11th and 12th)
    @ Wisconsin (would assume it's the October 18th and 19th)
    Home and Home vs Minnesota (October 25th at Minnesota and home October 26th)
    @Minnesota State (Thanksgiving Weekend)
    @Merrimack (between Christmas and New Years)
