Submit Your Questions For FTT UMail

Tomorrow for my View From Section U piece I’ll be answering readers’ questions, which is a feature that seemed to be pretty successful when I did it earlier in the season. So if there are any topics you’d like to see me address, from UMass hockey past or present to the rest of Hockey East to my favorite beers to homebrewing to road trips or just about anything, this is your chance. I’ll select the best and most interesting ones submitted by tomorrow evening and post my responses later in the night.

To submit a question, you can leave it as a comment to this post, send it to the FTT email, or post on the FTT Facebook page.


Recruit Update

Kenny Gillespie – RW – Omaha Lancers (USHL) – 2012
17 GP / 2 G / 3 A / 5 Pts / 33 PIM / -1
Gillespie played in one game for the Lancers over the weekend, not picking up any points but did get two trips to the box.

Willy Smith – LW – Springfield Pics (EJHL/EmpJHL) – 2014
EJHL: 20 GP / 1 G / 1 A / 2 Pts / 28 PIM
Empire: 19 GP / 6 G / 18 A / 24 Pts / 20 PIM
Smith played in three games for the EJHL Pics but didn’t find his way onto the scoresheet.

Shane Walsh – LW – South Shore Kings (EJHL) – 2012
Dubuque (USHL): 23 GP / 5 G / 7 A / 12 Pts / 0 PIM / –8
South Shore (EJHL): 3 GP / 2 G / 1 A / 3 Pts / 2 PIM
Walsh continues to excel in his homecoming, picking up the game winning goal for the Kings in his lone game this past week.  Old news, but Walsh did sign his LOI to UMass during this past fall’s signing period.

Another article on UMass and how taking too many penalties is killing their chances to win games, this time from the College Hockey News’ Michael King.

CHN’s Joe Meloni mentions Steve Guzzo in his Three Up, Three Down feature (unfortunately it’s not on the good side).

On another note, is College Hockey News just going to be renamed the Daily Collegian soon or what?  UMass journalism is dominating on that site.

Matt Irwin played in the AHL All Star Game last night, but didn’t get on the scoresheet in a loss for his East squad which was unable to solve game MVP Ben Bishop.  Irwin looked solid in the parts of the game I was able to watch however.  Irwin has adjusted to the pro game much quicker than I expected when he left UMass after his sophomore year.

UNH hockey, just one point behind the Minutemen and in 9th place, is in survival mode says the Seacoast.
