Recruit Update

Time for the weekly look at how the future Minutemen are doing.

Kenny Gillespie – RW – Omaha Lancers (USHL)
1 GP / 0 G / 0 A / 0 Pts / 2 PIM
Gillespie went without a point in his USHL debut.

Shane Walsh – LW – Dubuque Fighting Saints (USHL)
3 GP / 0 G / 0 A / 0 Pts / 0 PIM / -5
Walsh has gone scoreless as the defending champion Saints have gone 1-2-0 to start the season.

Dick Baker of the Republican says UMass got the result they deserved in the season opener (mentioning Fear The Triangle as he does so).  Obviously, I disagree.  Well, not entirely.  They did get the result they deserve, since letting up at the end opened the door for Northeastern to tie it, which they took advantage of.  My point was more that good teams find a way to win.  They get the insurance goal, they come up with the big stop, they find a way to clear the puck with just seconds left.  As a whole, this team hasn’t learned what it takes to win.  I think they will, I just hope it will be sooner rather than later.  Regardless, there’s still a positives to take from Friday’s game, which I think I covered pretty well in my recap.

UMass comes in at #33 in the first edition of INCH’s power rankings.

Here’s a promo for Friday’s opener:

Cannot wait to get back in the Mullins for some hockey.

  1. Why are all the highlights from that video only from two games, both of which UMass lost?

    all the highlights against quinnipiac are from the game we played last year against them which we won 5-2 i believe


  3. I would love to get a hold of the UMass video archive and make a pump up video. This one is well done but…requiem for a dream score? Come on, way too overplayed. I’d throw some DJ shadow on there and call it a day
