    But Jordan Harris stays! The smart money thought it would be the other way around. Also, TJ Walsh and Neil Shea in the transfer portal.

    I don't follow the women's side all that closely but what the NU women have done so far (19-1-1 and by far the lowest GA in the country) is nothing short of extraordinary in any league and at any level. So a tip of the helmet and good luck to them. They represent the best chance any NU team has ever had to bring home a national championship.

    I'm not sure who the men's team is either. A mystery wrapped up inside of an enigma. A lot of folks are down on Connor Murphy for rebound control and allowing soft goals. That's legit so far as it goes but I'm frankly more concerned that the offense hasn't been able to offset a couple of softies per game given the firepower this team has on paper. The injury bug certainly hasn't helped but this team has depth it has never had in my memory. And speaking of injuries, Devon Levi must have been messed up in the WJC more than anybody wants to talk about since he's still on the shelf some two months later.

    So no Beanpot tonight? It doesn't sound like we're getting that much snow!

    He's certainly not shy about about mucking around in the dirty areas and is known for stirring things up. So I'd think he'd be high on any team's "grit list." And he has a knack for tipping pucks into nets. Pro prospects aside, this guy's growth and development has been really impressive. IIRC, he was something of a spare part when he first arrived at NU.

    NCAA has given all players another of year of eligibility. This year counts for nothing in terms of their NCAA eligibility so he should still have 4 years after this season. In an interview, Levi said injured his rib making a save and twisting and not from absorbing a shot as some stated. He took Tylenol for the discomfort.

    I'm not sure whether or not the NCAA gave everyone an extra year of eligibility, even if they play this season. But, if not, Levi would seem to be a candidate for a medical redshirt. I just can't see the merit in rushing him back to play what might only be a relatively few games.

    Some of the Canadian media claim Levi's injury is a cracked (not fractured) rib. I've had both in my lifetime and can testify that both are incredibly painful. How Levi played through the entire WJC with that injury and picked up three shutouts along the way is almost mind-boggling. Hope for his sake that there are no lasting effects.

    Northeastern's Devon Levi says his injury is a fractured rib, which he played with at WJC, and he'll be out for six weeks

    I didn’t watch the game but listened to the UMass broadcast. Sounded like NU dominated the third period and outside the two UMass goals, seemed like the entire period was played in the UMass end. I think a lot of games between these two the past 10-15 years has come down to who has had the better goalie, and I think last night was no exception. Was relieved when the game was over. Really thought UMass was lucky to come away with three points.

    It was rebound city for Connor Murphy against a quality offensive team. Easily his worst game of the year. And goaltending issues notwithstanding, another overall blah performance.

    Seeming inability to close out games when they hold a late lead is disturbing.

    I began wondering something tonight I never stopped to think about before. How does the co-op year work for athletes? Do they take it while playing? Do they take it the year after playing? Do they get their costs covered for a fifth year? Never considered it before.

    Offbeat observations after two games:
    • While most of the pre-season hype about the incoming freshmen centered on Sam Colangelo, Gunnarwolfe Fontaine, and Devon Levi, it seems we will all learn how to properly pronounce "Agriogianis" rather quickly.
    • For his part, Gunnarwolfe seemed not only fast and slick but also not bashful about sticking his nose into the dirty areas.
    Both are locks to make the All-Name team.

    A 6 point weekend, lots of scoring from lots of players. I am not certain MC isn't in a total rebuild, but I'll take it. GO HUSKIES!
