  • Nice pickup on the coaching staff for you guys. Seems like Nightingale might know what he's doing...

      I’m pleased. Good recruiter and former goalie so that position is covered. Nightingale’s ability to lure an assistant from a top program is a good sign. Jared should enjoy the much lower housing costs in East Lansing.

        He’ll probably make a tad bit more here, too.

        Really happy with this hire.

        • Interesting approach from you guys. On the surface an underwhelming choice for HC but then you poach a top assistant from an established program.

            It’s given me a jolt of confidence, that’s for sure. I’ve come around to the Nightingale hire in the past weeks but I now am convinced he’ll be an upgrade over our last couple coaches.

            • Add Viktor Hurtig for this year. A big Dman…makes 9 d at this time.

              • Mike Towns (from Clarkson) is the new assistant coach. Nightingale has put together an excellent coaching staff.

                also GLI is back (sans Michigan) at GR December 27-28 with Ferris, Western, and Tech

                • Non con dropped today. Not surprises except Long Island. Better not drop one of those for the new staff’s sake.
                  “Get these dates into your calendar! Our non-conference schedule is now officially on the books!”

                  • Karsen Dorwart has been officially added for next year. The assumption is he replaces the Cole unsigned pick of Laker Aldridge. No official news on Victor Hurtig a big Swede dman who was reported by multiple sources as coming to MSU this year.

                    This probably is the best that Nights could do for this year as many of the incoming spots had already been filled by Cole. That said, this team certainly has enough talent to escape last place.

                      I wonder if Hurtig is facing some admissions hurdles which wouldn't be surprising with an international recruit. That, or someone got some bad info either about the offer in general or the year he's arriving. My bet is on the former though, and hopefully any admissions issues are ironed out by early July.

                      However I still don't see where the scoring is coming from to escape the B1G basement. That having been said I have zero expectations for the upcoming season so any improvement from last season means we're slightly ahead of schedule.

                        Apparently the issues have been worked out as Hurtig is now official. This should be the last add for this year.

                        • The Spartans lost a great friend, supporter and administrator this week when Tom Campbell, rink manager at Munn lost his battle with cancer. For those of you who did not know Tom he was a great ambassador of Spartan hockey and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Tom his family and friends.

                          • With the release of the roster…a couple of surprises (at least for me). Added is forward Ryan Nolan from Merrimack. He looks to be a 5th line forward. Also Daniel Russell is listed as a defenseman. I can find no record of him having played that position in the past. Not sure what the story is, but if a defenseman he will undoubtedly spend this year learning the position as a practice player. With 10 dmen at least 3 are unlikely to see much ice time so Connor and Dybicz will also likely see little if any playing time.

                              Hmm could just be an error. If true, I would assume the staff is down on the current D-core in some way. Perhaps too offensively inept? Maybe a few of the guys just aren’t at a D1 level?

                              I Don’t much like such a move. Forwards often times do not skate backwards well enough to not be a liability when on D full time.
