    Great win for the Team last night. The BBK line (Brown, Berglund,Kaiser) is on fire. Last night they combined for 16 shot attempts and all 3 goals. They have almost 40% of the goal output (8 of 21) for the Team. Not bad newbies! In particular, Brown is really fun to watch.

    How much of that was on the officiating last night? I didn't watch but the box score reads like a lot of make up calls were issued.

    There were a lot of calls, but most of them were legit. The 1st 2 periods were very sloppy by both teams. No penalties were called in the 3rd or OT.

    The linesmen were horrible. I'm not sure we had more than 5 faceoffs all game where someone didn't get tossed out.

    Nick Briganti worked the game last night and Friday as a Linesman. I noticed a similar trend on a Friday especially in the third period.

    Yes, plenty of ugly hockey, ill advised/lazy passes, over the weekend but they managed to get 3 points out of it. Agree about Wall, he's been solid all season.

    They need to get the PP going, only 1 for 12 on the weekend and 3 for 35 on the season. The next 6 games will be huge in regards to league standings (@UVM, @UVM, ME, ME, @UConn, UConn).The Hawks need to take care of business.

    The two of them really seem to like waiting an extra second or two to drop the puck. It's like they're horny for throwing guys off the dot.

    Re: UML 2019/2020: Underclassmen Reign

    The title of this thread got me wondering when the last time UML had a roster composition weighing heavily with underclassman. Being the nerd I am I copied/pasted all the roster information from the HE website and made a spreadsheet to analyze. The data is only as good as its source and does not take into account which players may have been "active". With that caveat out of the way, this is what caught my eye:

    Back in the 2010-11 season (Bazin's first?), the roster had Sr-Jr-So-Fr --> 5-5-6-13. So, 10 upperclassmen and 19 lower. For what its worth they finished dead last in HE.

    The following year, 2011-12, the roster was comprised of 4-3-9-11; so 7 upper and 20 lowerclassmen. The team tied for 2nd in HE. Although they were bounced in the first round of the HE playoffs they were invited to the NCAA tourney and made it to the regional finals.

    I see that the roster composition for those two back-to-back years (2010-11 and 2011-12) is almost identical to last year and this year.
    2018-19 was comprised of 5-6-6-13; 11 upper and 19 lower.
    2019-20 is comprised of 3-4-12-9; 7 upper and 21 lower.

    What does it mean? Most likely nothing. But we do know that the 2011-12 team was the start of an amazing 6 year run in UML hockey history with youngsters making up the core like Wilson, Arnold, Pedenza, and Ruhwedel. Do we have something similar taking root now? Time will tell, but we do know that this team will be fun to watch this year.

    You could have just gone to the Game Notes - this blurb has been in there since the start of the season:

    YOUTH MUST BE SERVED: With a nine-member freshman class, twenty-one of the
    28 players on the UMass Lowell roster are underclassmen. Seventy-five percent
    of the roster has no more than one year of college hockey experience. There are
    nine are freshmen, twelve sophomores, four juniors and three seniors on the roster.
    The River Hawks, going into the season, average 27.5-games experience per player.
    Last year 19 of 30 players were freshmen or sophomores. It is the largest group of
    underclassmen since the 2003-04 season when 25 of 30 players on the roster were
    underclassmen. The team also had 21 underclassmen during the 2007-08 season.
    This one too:
    UNDERCLASSMEN: The UMass Lowell underclass (9 freshmen and 12 sophomores),
    at 21, is one of the largest in the country. Only Quinnipiac with 22 has more.
    Merrimack also has 21.

    What would the fun be by simply reading Game Notes?

    The point I was trying to emphasize was the similarity of the back-to-back years, not just one year: 2010-11 + 2011-12 ~= 2018-19 + 2019-20
    Ugh that looks like a math equation waiting to be solved.

    Regardless, historical stuff like that does not accurately forecast the future. Just fun to think about.

    Except that 2010-11 was Blaise's last year as coach, and 2011-12 was Norm's first year, so you really can't compare them.

    Per the Hockey East website, Norm is listed on the Roster Page as the Head Coach for the 2010-11 season. Must be wrong? Regardless it doesn't make that much difference to the comparison unless the roster significantly changed when Blaise left (other than seniors moving on).

    Yeah the HE site is wrong. Norm's first season was 11-12. Wikipedia has it right

    I think there was some roster turnover beyond seniors graduating when Norm came in. I can't tell you the exact number, but I recall him being asked about that during an interview and he said something a long the lines of there were some kids on the team that didn't have hockey has a top priority.

    I guess this season we have more underclassmen than ususal, but don't we usually have more underclassmen? Some kids always leave the program and Norm rarely brings in transfers.
