    I'm optimistic, but it's a bit strange to postpone it until the 18th? Why not postpone it until after the christmas holidays? It's possible they are using all of the "flex days" in trying to cut down on the current spike. Students are being given the option to head home early and there are no in-person classes scheduled after thanskgiving break.

    I'd really like to see what Woodcroft has done with the team, hopefully we don't have to wait until next Oct.

    Very cool. Thanks for the heads up on this. The coaching change is already paying off, as it's pretty unlikely he would have selected UVM if Sneddon were still at the helm. His brother is no slouch either. Very exciting, welcome aboard boys!

    Picked last in the coaches poll. Nowhere to go but up. Should be a lower pressure season for the players.....except they have a new coach to prove themselves to...

Does this not make it impossible for UVM to host out of state teams and also to travel to play out of state and then return to VT? Does anyone know if they received some sort of exemption from the state? Or is the 20-21 schedule a mirage that will never happen?
    This does NOT include intercollegiate athletics. College hockey and squeekyball are fine.

    Freshman Dovar Tinling was given a "B" rating on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary Players to Watch list. Indicates a 2nd/3rd round candidate.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how the change in direction and culture affects this team. Woodcroft maybe an unconventional pick, but I'm excited to see how that plays out. The test in my view will be in HIS recruits over the next few seasons. Identifying talent was one of his purported strengths. Hopefully that holds true. Really hoping for a more offensive style of play as well, it kills me to agree with the BC fans, but Sneddon's defensive nature didn't make for exciting teams to watch.

    I'm honestly lowkey pretty excited for this season. I know we're not going to be good. But we have new faces and fresh ideas, and frankly the weirdness of this year takes even more pressure off. Remember: BC was 11-22-2 in York's first season, Maine in Walsh's was 12-29-1, and UMass in Carvel's was 5-29-2. It won't get better overnight, it's about the direction.

    It's going to be a process, the pain of a rebuild is real. I'm not worried about results this year, or even next. Just strive to get better every day, and give us a team and culture that we can be proud of, win or lose.

    Side note, Divver had a few Woody quotes on Babcock today:
