First off, some freshman news.

Dick Baker of the Republican continues to amp up his hockey coverage and has this story on teammates turned roommates Troy Power and Jeff Teglia.  Both of whom will play pivotal roles this coming season, Power as a needed presence as a strong forward with a scoring touch and Teglia as Dainton’s backup and goalie of the future.

Baker also has a short blog post on playmaker Conor Sheary.

Next up is alumni.

Kevin Kessler has signed with the Huntsville Havoc of the Southern Professional league.

Meanwhile Matt Irwin was one of the first cuts at San Jose Sharks training camp and has been assigned to Worcester.  James Marcou, Justin Braun, and Cory Quirk are still up with the big team.

The Star Tribune out of Minnesota has this article on Casey Wellman, touching on the awkward circumstances surrounding one of Coach Cahoon’s former players signing one of his best players halfway through his college career.

Greg Mauldin is impressing at Avalanche camp.  Will he finally get his chance?

And finally John Wessbecker has signed with the Rapid City Rush of the CHL.

On to the recruits.

John Parker and the Muskegon Lumberjacks had a chance to play one of their preseason games at Joe Louis Arena last week.  Here are some highlights that the Lumberjack team has turned into a promo:

Parker has started off pretty well and had a couple goals this past weekend.

Kevin Boyle unfortunately is off to a rough start with Westside of the BCHL.

Media days have begun in the land of college hockey which means it’s time to look at some preseason polls.

First up is Atlantic Hockey where Frozen Four participant RIT is picked to finish first while UMass opponent Army is picked 9th in the newly expanded 12 team league.

Staying east, UMass opponent Yale is the favorite in both the ECAC media and coach’s polls, while Quinnipiac, which rolls into the Mullins on Thanksgiving weekend, is picked 8th.

Hockey East’s media day is next Wednesday. 

Look for my comprehensive Hockey East preview early next week with my UMass preview likely coming a week from Friday.
