  • Michigan Hockey 2019-2020- a big fresh start, again.

    So the season is coming up, as since Mgoblue has posted the incoming roster, it's probably time to start a new thread.

    Here's the incoming team- https://mgoblue.com/news/2019/8/9/ic...20-season.aspx

    Oddly- three are transfers. One RPI as what looks to be his third season; one from RPI who is a graduate transfer; and one from BU who is a graduate transfer.

    Outside of Mel's first season, he's really shaken things up year after year. So will this be the core he can build from for the future?

    We have a new Assistant Coach- Kris Mayotte from Providence College. https://mgoblue.com/news/2019/8/16/i...ant-coach.aspx

    And he's a former goaltender. So I wonder what Steve Shields' role will be, if he stays. Or will they both cover it?

        Not sure how many here are still Dekers members- but got a note yesterday about the season events, and it all kicks off with an open practice followed by lunch with the team! Not quite the same as the picnic, but at least we get to meet some of the players!

          Very happy to see a pre-season meet and greet with the players is on tap once again. I was told that the players asked for it. No confirmation from any of them but it is nice to think that they missed us. See you there, Alpha!

            Yeah, I'm still here.
            I got that same email 2 weeks ago. Still trying to decide if I'm going. Only a week and half to go.
            There is also the Jan. 4 mid season "State of the Team" brunch.

            Don't know if you caught this one or not but it seems like now they are automatically making all season ticket holders "Dekers" members since 2 or 3 years ago.

            It's hard to believe this season makes 28 for me!

              Okay, so who is going to the practice and lunch this Saturday?

                  Michigan Daily: Michigan not overreacting to disappointing season

                  Mayotte was brought in to run the penalty kill and is the first full-time goaltenders’ coach at Michigan in Pearson's memory. With Mayotte’s hiring, associate head coach Bill Muckalt moves from running the penalty kill to running the power play. Volunteer assistant Steve Shields, previously the Wolverines’ only goaltender coach, is now part of coaching team with Mayotte.

                    We didn't RSVP, but I'm thinking we might stop by. We need to be in Canton at 1 pm. I wonder if babies are welcome to the event. Our little wolverine has a great onesie hand me down from a friend/occasional poster. Says something about "on my way to Yost Ice Arena".

                      I was wondering how things turned out with your former parasite as you called it. I hope to meet your new Wolverine in February or do you think Yost will be too loud for a baby that young? Don't worry, I'll try not to get any Ohio State cooties on her, him?

                        The parasite was surgically removed and is currently a happy, healthy, little girl, that continues to suck life force from me.

                        We took her to the football game last week and survived (although, we didn't get to watch much football). She will definitely go to some games at Yost. The problem is, Michigan Athletics wants to make all the monies, so we'd need a ticket for her. Not a problem for any games my buddy's wife doesn't go to/want to go to. We will miss some games or find a sitter for the likely to be sold out games (which probably means OSU games).

                        Also, yes, too loud. Not just for a baby. Too loud. I wore earplugs to the games at Yost last year. We have headphones for baby wT.

                          I thought the little girl wearing her headphones and Michigan clothing by the glass at Yost in the B1G commercials last year was just too precious.
                          I'm sure yours will give her a run for the money!

                            Too bad she can't play hockey for your alma mater.

                              I'm sure you will be okay. I RSVP'd for two but son-in-law had to back out.
                              Lunch is going to be tight depending on exactly where in Canton you need to go.
