Interesting thoughts... I find it interesting that the HE coaches poll has UConn finishing ninth, most college hockey publications have UConn finishing about fourth.... Interesting discussion points.h/t to @RSTuthill for the find...
>>Which team do you think will surprise this season?
Buccigross: There is so much parity in #cawlidgehawkey that the days of major surprises are over. Air Force and Minnesota State should win their leagues and be able to make a run. Minnesota State, in particular, is much better and could be a real factor this season.
Peters: UConn is not a big-time power, but I think it has a chance to make some noise in Hockey East this season. The team has slowly been building with some intriguing recruiting classes heavy on European talent. Adding to a core that already includes talented forwards Ruslan Iskhakov (New York Islanders), Jachym Kondelik (Nashville Predators) and goalie Tomas Vomacka (Predators), the Huskies have a few blue-chip recruits in Vladislav Firstov (Minnesota Wild) and Matej Blumel (Edmonton Oilers).
I think this all hinges on Vomacka's ability to play big-time minutes in net and continue his success. The Huskies aren't likely to be a real power in college hockey, but they're going to start taking steps out of the shadows in Hockey East.<<
Depends on the Wolfpack schedule.
3:30 or 7:00 depending on who goes 1st
All of UConn's Saturday games at the XL Center are scheduled to start at either 3:30 or 4. The Wolf Pack are scheduled to have doubleheaders with UConn Hockey on Oct 12, Nov 9, and Dec 7. There's nothing scheduled to happen at the XL Center after the Hockey team plays on Nov 30 or Feb 1.That's what I thought.
