I'm just a casual fan but enjoy following the team and going to a couple XL games a years. Whats the prognosis for next year's from someone who follows closer than me? Returning talent? Recruits?

>>UConn men’s hockey defenseman Philip Nyberg is turning pro. The would-be senior is returning back home to Sweden to play in HockeyAllsvenskan, the country’s second-division league, a source confirmed. Nyberg wasn’t sure of what his role would be with the Huskies this upcoming season and ultimately just wanted to go back home. However, his departure is amicable. <<

>>While UConn is losing one defenseman, they will be gaining another. The UConn Blog also learned that elite Russian recruit Yan Kuznetsov will come to Storrs this fall instead of 2020. Despite only being 17 years old, Kuznetsov is one of the top prospects to commit to UConn and is expected to be a first round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.<<

Kuznetsov is 17y/o w/ a 6-3, 210lb build.

That's great to get him on campus ASAP
Nyberg had a nice heavy shot from the point but didn't do much else for a big defenseman

A program that hasn't been to an NCAA Tournament since 2015 is a "Really cool" opponent to have at home? Ok. They won 11 games last year.

Do we try to schedule Big Ten schools?

Im pretty sure we played penn state last year. Have played notre dame (which is big ten for hockey) in years past.
