The schedule won't be finalized for another few weeks yet. Right now, here's what I can give you for next season. Two at Mercyhurst, one at Northeastern, a home and home with R.I.T., two at home versus Providence, two at Vermont (believe this will be the Catamount Cup) and two at Maine. Two more games will be added to that. Plus, the home and home with Cornell will not be on a weekend in the second half due to how the block schedule is made up for next season - I'm not sure how those games will be broken up.

I like that schedule so far. It seems odd that we would have two at home vs Providence (when we only went their once this year) and one at northeastern when they came here twice. But I know these schedules are particularly scheduled.

Hopefully the two games to be added will be a western team just to get diversity but overall happy with that schedule

Providence is part of a four-year contract. This year was one at Providence, next year is two at Colgate, two more at Providence in 2016-17 and then one at Colgate in 2017-18.

Congrats 'Gate on a terrific run that came up a little short.

Shabby, I feel your pain but better days are coming. You'll be on that party barge soon enough waiting for next season to begin! ;)

I could be very wrong about this (it wouldn't be a first) but I believe I read somewhere that Colgate was headed to Tempe next year for 2 games against ASU who will be in their first D1 season. Also ASU would be in Hamilton for 2 games during the 2016-17 season

"I dont want to forget about Colgate as well. That is a team that pushed us to the limit. They are certainly a team deserving of the national tournament as well. They are a first class team and we feel fortunate to come out on top against them." Donato said

There have been so many high points for Colgate over the past few years ..... you really set yourselves and the ECAC apart with your big non-conference wins these past 3-4 years and you are alwasy there when the ECAC comes down to its final 4 teams. As Harvard Coach Donato said, your are a first class team, and I might add ... each and every year.

Since the formation of the current ECAC Structure in 1985 with the breaking away of the Hockey East teams, three of the current members have never won the Post Season Championship, Brown, Dartmouth and Quinnipiac. Of the teams that have won it, Colgate has the longest drought now at 25 years. <pre>

Bob McKenzie tweeted today that Kyle Baun is entertaining multiple free agent offers and will make up his mind in the next few days whether to forgo his senior year.

That would be rough to take but going pro is all of their goals so hard to say no. Would be nice to see the Spink Spink Baun line finish their careers together. I was worried about something like this if we went deep into the tournament, but kinda surprised it would happen now

Those are ominous stats for some of us, vic...the LP hangover is only 1 day old.

Not surprised in the least that Donato would say something so respectful, though any coach that wins a tournament will compliment his worthy opponent, not to mention we have a classy league.

Had read something similar about ASU. Next year's OOC sounds good, partly because of the teams our opponents will play which may ultimately help us. I agree there could be a western team in the mix. Some schools seem to have impressive schedules no matter what. This year, Cornell played UNO x2, Denver x2, Penn State, Miami and Lake State...all on a shorter, Ivy League schedule. Yale's OOC this year was not as impressive against UConn (W), RIT (W), Holy Cross (W), Northeastern (L), and Vermont (W), but the Bulldogs are sitting pretty right now so maybe it doesn't matter so long as you get the job done.

I'm sorry I missed 'Gate Radio's final broadcast...I laugh at the creative metaphors and will miss them in the offseason! I will also miss the seniors who have left their marks on Colgate hockey. Some big shoes to fill. Can't wait to hear more about Colgate's new freshmen class. Any info? Hope we can keep the momentum going and get another local gem like Wilson!

Please take #15 with you Kyle...that guy singlehandedly killed us!

Along those lines, just thought I'd point something out that I saw at the end of the game last night. Lough was heading out to line up for the final faceoff with only a couple seconds left, but instead turned around, went back to the bench, and told Spiro to go out on the ice one more time, and finish the game. Class act by him, showing how much these seniors will be missed.

Last night was a tough pill to swallow, but hopefully it can focus the team even more for next season. We have unfinished business in Lake Placid after these last 2 years, and hopefully next year's seniors will help push the team to finally complete it.

I will be watching and hoping not to see any news about Baun every day. I heard Columbus is signing him.

Are you sure Darcy killed us? 3rd on the team in points, and 1st on the team in +/- at +18. I think you're just remembering the untimely game misconducts - but he never ever stops hustling and is right in the middle of everything that happens. I'll take 12 forwards just like him on my team. I take that back, I'll take 11 of him and 1 Mike Borkowski!

Best of luck to Kyle if he goes pro; I hope he stays 1 more year but I sure couldn't blame him if he has the opportunity.

I really hope Kyle decides to stay!!!! He gets a Colgate degree, keeps the Cornwall line together, and closes out Starr rink!!!! FYI: The Columbus Blue Jacket's North American amateur scout is Greg Drechsel, Colgate 1984-1988. Greg needs to leave Kyle alone for one more year!!!!!

Got6 is an SLU fan. He means Darcy had two goals and two assists vs SLU Friday night, I believe.

From MyNHLTradeRumors:
"Bob McKenzie: There have been 18 teams that have shown some interest in Kyle Baun (grandson of former Maple Leafs Bobby Baun). Contract offers will be submitted by today. Itís likely that he will forego his senior college season. Decision on leaving, and which offer to take if he does, will likely be made tomorrow or Wednesday."
