For those who may have missed it, both of this weekend’s Massachusetts hockey games have been rescheduled due to the impending snowstorm. Tomorrow night’s game against Northeastern has been postponed until Tuesday, February 19th at 7pm. This gives those of us who travel from out of town the excuse to take the entire day off and enjoy a four day weekend. Saturday afternoon’s game at Merrimack has been pushed back to Sunday at 4pm. The game was originally scheduled to be broadcast on NESN but that will no longer be the case, thereby robbing UMass of their one chance to be shown on regional/national TV this year. Maybe next year Hockey East will be nice enough to give UMass a rare televised home game.
I hope everyone stays safe and has plenty of beer in stock in preparation of the incoming blizzard.
In some alumni news, Kevin Moore who dressed for an ECHL game in an emergency situation last month has been signed for the league’s Evansville Icemen. There he’ll be in the familiar position of playing alongside Paul Dainton, who was assigned there recently from the Springfield Falcons.
Mike Marcou has been promoted to San Antonio of the AHL after a strong season at the ECHL that saw him make the All-Star squad.
