And your coach returning or departing?
Good luck to Sammy Kolowrat and Theresa Schafzahl at IIHF Worlds, as well as future Catamount Natalie Mlynkova (who is expected to join UVM for the 2020-21 season)
UVM at the women's worlds:
Sammy Kolowrat (CZE): 0-1-1, +3
Natalie Mlynkova (CZE): 3-0-3, +2 - Top 3 Player on Team - Not a Catamount yet, will join the team for 2020-21, iirc, but the hype!!
Theresa Schafzahl (AUT, D1A): 5-0-5, +1 - Austria team MVP
Captains named today.
Picard and O'Leary co-captains. The Star Trek jokes begin.
Shanahan and Granato assistants - have to think Tina's going to be the 2020-21 captain.
Newly-minted Captain Picard showing her value off the ice. At the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences student awards last night, she received the Sean O'Flaherty Fahey award as UVM's top junior engineering student. Congrats!
Forgot to post this when the WCHA composite schedule came out, but the Windjammer Classic field is set. Clarkson, Minnesota State, and Penn State will be joining UVM this year.
Future Catamount goalie Jessie McPherson has been invited to Hockey Canada's U18 goalie camp roster. Cats have a real bright future in net between her and Ferenc
Congrats to Class of 2019 forward Saana Valkama who has signed with Linköping in the Swedish women's league.
Newcomers recently announced:
#3 D Emma Katzman from Chicago Young Americans
#4 D Cameron Morrissey from Selects Hockey Academy
#23 F Hailey Burns from John Abbott College
#38 G Natalie Ferenc from Detroit Little Caesars
#49 D Sara Levesque from John Abbott College
#66 F Lily Humphrey from New Hampton School
#68 F Tynka Pátková from The Gunnery
Also, appears as though Greta Close has left the program. only one number change; Corinne McCool goes from #18 to #24, a number freed up by the graduation of Saana Valkama
Solid season-opening win (though granted not the best competition). Dominated in possession and the shot count, some good link-up play, a couple gritty clean-up-the-mess goals. Liked Karjalainen, McCool a lot. Blanka solid when she needed to be.
Prooobably should've won that one...hopefully Ferenc has a short memory because that wasn't a great first impression. But hey, might just be a case of beginners' suck, and Blanka looked good again.
McCool, Caldwell, Karjalainen took some big steps forward.
Solid weekend again! Offense looks confident so far, huge after some woes there the last few years. Let's keep up the positive momentum!
I know UVM lost yesterday, but the performances so far have largely been very encouraging...other than after going up 3-0 against unh
I think so, too. Even the failure to close out UNH may not be that bad if the Wildcats continue to show improvement over past years.
