  • Brown Hockey 2019-2020: Hibernation is Over

    Brown today announced its incoming freshman class, and, thus, a new season (and thread) beckons: https://brownbears.com/news/2019/5/2...s-of-2023.aspx

    I'm particularly excited about Cocca, Holmes, Krys, Albert, and the Finnish kid whose name I'll hopefully learn how to spell over the next four years. Each seems to have excelled at their previous stops. Plessis put up decent numbers, as well, and brings some size to an otherwise smaller forward corps. Hard to get a read on those I didn't mention, but I'd expect such a big class to contribute quite a bit this coming season.

    The schedule has also been posted for a couple weeks now: https://brownbears.com/schedule.aspx?path=mhockey
    Highlights include a home visit from reigning national runners-up UMass, local non-conference road trips to BU and Bentley, the Mayor's Cup FINALLY occurring on a weekend, Cornell at Meehan for Senior Day, a home-and-home with Yale to kick off the season, and a two-game series against Arizona State at Meehan in January. After last year's success in mid-season tournaments, I'm a bit disappointed not to see any on the schedule for next year, but that's ok. If all goes well, I'm planning to go to quite a few away games, including all the Boston-area teams (Harvard, BU, Bentley), PC, UNH, and possibly the Capital Region trip. Is it November yet??

    On a side note: I tried to find a good pun based off a player name for this thread, but nothing came to me. Guarantee I'll think of it in a couple months, long after this post.

    Go Bruno!

        How about one for the coach: Hibernation is over, and Whittet comes a new season...

        You’re welcome.

          Oof. It was RIGHT there. Time for me to retire from this kind of thing, I suppose.

            Alex Brink is headed to BU as a graduate transfer. What kind of player can BU expect?

              Smart player who plays heavy and works hard. He won’t be a top six guy in all likelihood, but he should help your bottom six quite a bit with hard-nosed, physical forechecking. Can chip in and score occasionally (including the triple overtime winner against Princeton in the playoffs this past season). Decent hands and speed, but not a natural goal scorer per se. By all accounts, he’s a great teammate and person. Wish him well!

                Garnet Hathaway signs a 4 year contract with Washington Capitals for $6 million. Terrific news for Brown hockey. I believe that is the highest contract for a Brown hockey player ever. Correct?

                  Still funny even on the Brink of a new season.

                    Good sign of investment in the program from Brown Athletics!

                      Assistant coach James Marcou jumped ship to Harvard today. Classy move, departing a week before the semester starts to take a job with an Ivy rival.

                          In all fairness it was reported about 3 weeks ago that Marcou was leaving for Harvard after their AC left for UMICH.

                              Think it's fair to say he's been missed! He's doing great things with Northeastern. Won't be surprised if/when he lands a head coaching gig.
