Jamie, as I recall, was the all time money raiser - he just had that personality that was charismatic. It was clear to see why he became captain of the team. He is such a nice guy and a wonderful family. I remember reffing a green/gold game and he came flying out of the corner at me and I thought I was doomed - he was as solid as a rock and if he'd hit me I'd not be writing this! I wished he had a longer career in the NHL, but some is better than none. I wish him all the best in his post pro hockey career.

    Confirmed games on the sked so far...

    @ Clarkson October 18. You'd assume that means we're @ St. Lawrence on the 19th (when PC visits Clarkson).

    @ BU November 22-23. Hockey East games.

    @ Arizona State November 29-30. First trip to the desert - you'd think that means we're penciled in to host them in 2020-21, but who knows.

    Home to Yale Jan 3. No interesting comment here, it's Yale.

    @ RPI February 1... and if I'm not mistaken it's their Big Red Freakout! game; if you have time to kill, here's the broadcast of UVM visiting RPI for Freakout! in 1994: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUDv53rCW6E

    Thanks for posting this. I remember watching this game as a young 12 (soon to be 13) year old at the Alumni House with dreams of becoming an RPI grad. This game was exciting to watch with a legendary goalie in future Bruin Tim Thomas. Alas, Kelly Askew missed a wide open net with approximately 2 minutes left and the game ended in a 2-2 tie. Hopefully the crowd will return to where it was in 1994 and the Field House (Houston, not Gutterson) will be rockin again.

    Our seats are not available next year due to the construction. On the bench side they are temporarily relocating the walk way next to the glass. Was told there is no guarantee that I get them back in the new arena. UVM is making if very hard for me to justify spending a money on season tickets.

    Massie leaving really stings, I think he was our best all-around defender; he had decent mobility, size, and puck skills and most of our other blueliners lacked at least one of those IMO

    Re: UVM Offseason 2019 - Search for a Soul

    So I'm basing this off nothing other than who's actually in the UVM directory right now, but a fairly small class of incomings....

    D Andrew Lucas
    F William Lemay
    F Simon Boyko
    F Riley McCutcheon

    Plus F Thomas Aldworth will be eligible next season after sitting out this year (transfer from Quinnipiac). If I were Sneddon I'd be lurking around the transfer portal for a blueliner w/ experience with Massie jumping early, but that's just me.

    Seems to be a solid group - Lemay was the AJHL scoring champ this year and Boyko and Lucas were both give or take a point per game (and Lucas was as a blueliner). McCutcheon was just over a PPG in the OJHL as well. Let's see if the staff can actually do something with them, cause we needed scorers and these guys are proven at lower levels.

    I'm less concerned about the defense this year. They are way ahead of where they were last year. I think a bigger concern is the lack of goal scorers on the roster. Completely unrelated I met Max Kaufman a couple days ago when I was renewing our tickets. Nice kid who is excited about the renovation and getting to play in the upgraded barn. Glad UVM is keeping the ice size the same.

    The recruits coming in (based on the directory) were all good scorers in junior. Whether or not that'll translate is another story...
