Polls & Award

Yale is still atop the most recent USCHO poll, but UNH has now moved up to #2.  That poll now more closely resembles the USA Hockey/USA Today poll.  UMass’ next opponent, Wisconsin, is ranked #15 in the USCHO poll.


You may notice the title of today’s post says “award”, not “awards”.  With only one Hockey East team in action this past weekend, Vermont, they decided to just go ahead with a POTW award only.  With the Catamounts losing 6-4 to St Lawrence the Hockey East selectors of the awards must have wanted to avoid trying to pick a goaltender of the week between Alex Vazzano who was chased after a period or Rob Madore who gave up four goals in relief.  Good call.

Mile High Hockey has an excellent profile of Greg Mauldin.  Judging from the comments it looks like Maulds is making a lot of fans out in the Centennial state.


Even with Providence beating expectations this year they’re still having players jump ship.

It looks like Vinny Saponari will not be making that trip up Comm Ave after all.
