Right up front, I will acknowledge that I goofed today. I leisurely drove north from Indy to Big Rapids, Michigan, ahead of tomorrow night’s Ferris State game against Seth Appert’s US National Team Development Program and then Thursday’s game against Colgate. On the way north, I looked at the College Hockey News app and realized that their exhibition game was tonight (not tomorrow). Oops!! Anyway, I arrived just after the second period ended, with Ferris State up 5-0 on the Under-18 squad. I enjoyed the scoreless third period, but didn’t see anything that made me think Colgate should fear Ferris State for Thursday night. They apparently used freshman Carter McPhail in periods one and two, and I saw their frosh Finnish goalie Roni Salmenkangas play the third period (to finish out the game). Roni played well, but wasn’t really tested. Junior forward Marshall Moise looked strong, I thought. I am looking forward to seeing Colgate play on Thursday in this old-time hockey arena with its low ceiling and rowdy fans.
