      You could always take a look at the schedules thread; you'd be able to see everyone in the ECAC, as I know there was a bit of a following for it last year.

          Chris Heisenberg's List (2016) shows Zachary Emelifeonwu-LW coming this year. Does that make sense? Is this a typo? Will he be coming in 2017? Elite Prospects does have him listed as 2017 http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=213260

            He will turn 20 next Fall so he doesn't have to come this year, but it would not be a big surprise if he did. This would make 5 incoming to replace 4 graduating forwards, but that also would not be a surprise. Bottom line is we won't know until the announcement is made of next year's class. You can't go by the web lists too much as they are notoriously inaccurate. Subjectively, it looks like Zach could use another year of seasoning to work on his offensive skills. Otherwise fits the mold of the raw skilled, power-forward type that Bennett & company seem to like - even if most of them don't seem to pan out on the offensive they still can be useful role players.

              Could be this year. Ammarito has left & is now listed on the Utica Pioneers roster (D-3)..... http://www.d3hockey.com/commitments/2016/ECACW
              Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

                Very interesting .... thanks !!!

                If it happens, looks like a net plus. Sorry to see Ammarito leave. With the incoming talent, the writing might have been on the wall. Would love to see the "Big Boys" Maier, Dufour, Litchenwald and Vidmar step up and have a great year. Going to be a lot of competition for those forward positions next year.

                  Was wondering if something like that might happen.. not a huge surprise, as Ammirato was looking like an odd man out next season. I wish him well, as he has talent and hopefully can find success at the D-3 level. Zach-E makes sense as a replacement, since he is the oldest of the forward recruits that were not expected to be coming.

                    The schedule is out. Union will play 14 of its 34 games at Messa, its fewest at home since 2011-12. That does not bother me. Some years we are a better road team than home team. I believe our ice sheet tends to negate any speed advantage we have.

                      I'm not very good at it, but is anyone going to start an off-season thread?
