The NCAA 24 hr sports channel kicks off a new season tomorrow night. St. Lawrence vs Miami Ohio at 8 pm. I'll be watching and taping the game, as I will keep an eye on #44 Ryan Glenn from St. Lawrence.
I'll give you the biased report since I am a St. Lawrence alum and tend to follow ECAC/Hockey East more than any other conferences. I think if you haven't seen Glenn before, you will be impressed by him (watch him have a horrible game now that I've said something!). Overall he's a solid D-man with good eyes for open space and he makes play. He's big and uses his body to his advantage.
19- Rich Peverley, C. Gritty player, works well with the team. Put up good numbers last year on a team that didn't do much.
8- Jim Hakewill, D (Calgary). Solid player-- will get physical, quick skater. He is a little small (at least what I remember of him) but effective.
12- John Zeiler, F (Phoenix). A very promising young player. I think he's only a Sophomore this year, but he put up good numbers last season and the Saints will look to him to be their goal scorer.
I'm not sure who they'll go for with goalies, but I'd expect either McKenna (Nashville) or Ackley (assuming he was able to fully rehab from his injury last year). I'd be surprised if Hall gets it, but it might be something they give him since it's not too deep in the season
I also wonder how many of the freshman will see ice time.
I was very impressed with CSTV's coverage. I'll be looking forward to watching it each week.
Yes I would say the same. The one announcer actually sounded like he knew hockey. The game was ok, but alittle sloppy. Too many calls on both sides. 3rd goal was kindy ify cause it looked like a penatly but I was rooting for St Lawrence so I can't complain.
St. Lawrence's goalie played well, so did Bob Hartly's kid #33, both goalies made some good saves.
