Up To The Minute 9/17

Just a few stories to pass along today.

College Hockey News had this piece on the transfer of Rob Dongara to Massachusetts.  The report says that Dongara could’ve moved on from Northeastern to other Hockey East schools or teams “out West”.  Coach Micheletto has some good things to say about the newest Minuteman.

The Republican’s Harry Plumer has the story on the captains practices that have been occurring since the players returned to campus, despite no officially designated captains.  No news on when captains will be named.  It’ll likely be sometime after Micheletto sees the players in team settings, which just started this past Saturday when he was allowed to practice with small groups of players on the ice.

Whether UMass will enjoy the same sort of new coach bounce that Lowell and Providence saw last season is one of New England Hockey Journal’s can’t miss storylines of the season.

Minuteman fans will have a chance to meet Coach Micheletto (and as an extra bonus, Derek Kellogg) during an evening reception on October 3rd at the UMass Club in Boston.

NBC Sports has announced the Hockey East portion of their schedule this year and again it’s only made up of Boston College, Boston University, Maine, and New Hampshire.  No problem, because those are the schools that finished in the top four in the conference last season, no?

Reminder; I want my plate.  Get on this or I’m keeping my Beer The Triangle suggestions to myself this season.

Hockey East Previews will be starting tomorrow (Wednesday at the latest).

    Did I skim over a past FTT too quick….is there an intersquad scrimmage or some sort of exhibition game the first weekend of October?


    • They haven’t announced anything. I’m fairly certain there’s no exhibition game. I would assume there’s an intrasquad scrimmage but haven’t heard that officially.
