And no, Colgate isn't scheduled to play Miami this year unfortunately.

Does anyone show college hockey? None of our guys play for the Big X so I'm wondering if we'll get to see any of them this year.

Miami plays with quite a few Big Ten teams. They could still get on their channel. I did notice that a game vs. Michigan Tech in October will be on TV. The channel is still TBD.

FYI

Quote:
Reilly Smith, Forward, 6-0 170 lbs., St. Michael's(OPJHL)



Role he'll likely play: Smith is a pure offensive player with very good skills. Miami is a very solid offensive hockey team, but it's unlikely anyone on the team, outside of possibly Carter Camper and Andy Miele, have the high-end skill and scoring ability that Smith has. Once he finds his comfort zone, he should contribute a lot of points for the RedHawks.

Why he is ranked here: Smith was incredible last season in the OPJHL, but really only has one full year of junior experience in what is considered a weaker junior league. He's got big time potential, but there's also more possibility for variance with him than other players given the big jump he's making.

Why he'll be great: Smith can skate, shoot, pass, and see the ice incredibly well. He's got all the tools a player needs to be a solid offensive prospect.

Why he might not: He's young and still pretty skinny. He'll also need to learn to become more than just a one dimensional offensive player and learn to make contributions in other areas of the game.

Contrived Rivals-style star ranking: Three and a half stars

Yikes, no, not you. The other HF. The boards won't let you type a post with only capital letters.
