The frosh class this past season certainly did just that.

    Nevermind.

    He transferred out to the CHL this year and played for the Bloomington Blaze. Apparently he's coming back. He'll fit the instigator role nicely. My only problem is that he has a -9 in Bloomington.

    I'm really excited Gladiuk; that's kid's got some SERIOUS talent.

    That's completely and utterly upsetting. I love Bobby because he was the human penalty. If he's not going to the box, then I demand him drop the gloves at once twice in a game. He is the immortal Human Penalty Bobby Preece for that reason alone.

    You just ruined my day because I didn't even notice that

And, as coach Ryan Soderquist noted, "we have him at Bentley for two more years." I hope that he keeps his two sophomore-to-be linemates Alex Grieve and Brett Switzer next season, as they would remain an awesome first line in the AHA, or all of Div 1 hockey for that matter.

    AMEN!

    This team is ready to challenge. Can it be October yet?

    Any word on recruits coming in?

    Kirby is well-deserving and will make a fine representative. He is also a Hobey candidate, winning POY in AHA.

    Soderquist named coach of year, Grieve is Rookie of the Year. Gensler is first-team All-AHA, a Bentley first. Bonnett is named second team, with Komm on third team (a little bit of a shocker over Torf, who really sturggled down the stretch). Switzer is named All-Rookie with Grieve.

    Good haul, even though the Falcons won't win the trophy I was really hoping them to.

    That is humbling as a fan to read. He is a guy that we genuinely love because of how much he bleeds Bentley. He's Mr. Bentley hockey in terms of his history, and he's the all-time winningest coach. At the same time, he's also investing everything he's got in his body to build this program, literally from the ground up. He'd be a great coach of the year just because of how loyal everyone at Bentley is to him.

    If I had to peg two other nominees, I'd go with Coach Wilson and Coach Burkholder of Niagara. One thing I noticed about Wayne Wilson is that he shoots from the hip and doesn't mince words. He got his team on the track to a first round bye after a slow start, and RIT this year on the ice looked more vulnerable than it has in the past couple of years. HE managed to get the team going at the exact right moment.

    Same with Niagara. Even though Noonan is Mr. Everything in net, that team, on paper, I didn't thnk was as good as they looked. He managed to take individuals who really did nothing for me in terms of great players and got them to play as a solid collective unit. Very impressive resume.

    If nothing else, Soderquist needs to be in the running, and Brett Gensler deserves AHA POY.

    Based on improvement from AHA coaches' ranking pre-season and the final ranking (as close as that was with only 3 points separating the top six), Bentley was +4 (10 to 6), Mercyhurst +3 (7 to 4), Niagara +2 (4 to 2), AIC +2 (12 to 10), Air Force +1 (2 to 1), Canisius +0 (9 to 9), Sacred Heart +0 (11 to 11), RMU -1 (6 to 7), RIT -2 (1 to 3), UConn - 3 (5 to 8), and Army - 4 (8 to 12).

    Count me in as someone who thinks that Bentley could be a strong contender next year. Obviously being in the Eastern scheduling pod helps, but with the returning scorers that they have, they will be dangerous. They came very close to making it this year. I feel fortunate that RIT came out of the series with the wins.
