        He had a tough game on Friday night but I don't know if that's officially the reason why he was scratched, maybe he's carrying an injury. Dr. D. highlighted the one give away that led to a goal, and the broadcast team called him out for a bad decision on the SLU tying goal, for stepping up to a puckhandler without realizing it was a 3 on 1). But I thought that was a little harsh--RPI had it covered but it became a 3 on 1 after other RPI backcheckers were gliding back and got caught puckwatching as the SLU players skated past them.

        I am confident that a night off will do him some good and RPI will need him; the ability of RPI's defensemen to stickhandle and push the offensive tempo is one of the reasons the team has improved over the last season and a half.

          He hasn't played up to his usual past performances. I was just wondering if he feels that he should have been selected as a captain or asst. captain this season.
          He is a senior and was passed over by two incoming grad students.
          I am just guessing here, but it is possible. I hope that is not the case.

            Agree completely. That is the single biggest improvement I've seen this season. The comfort level of our D corps is improved -- their positioning and angles have been really good for the most part.

            • Guys- take a look at the newest poll posted on USCHO. Talk about little or no respect. Admittedly we are worthy yet of a top 20 position but we received a total of zero votes. Clarkson has a less than stellar record and lost to us by a couple of goals and got 44 votes. perhaps it may be that some pollsters have trouble spelling RPI?
              Does not really matter if we are not in the popularity poll but they will have to notice after we skate away with a league title!!!!

                ehf: Doubtful the selection was that much a big deal. jenny and I go back along way having seem him play when he was very young. he just made one bad play and one poor decision on Friday. Unfortunately both led to scores but defensemen live with those things. When a forward makes a bad play or poor decision you often don't notice since unless it is a glaring central ice turnover, does not often lead to a goal. Goalies and defensemen have that in common - if they commit a mistake it can show up on the scoreboard quickly. He will be fine. He is very solid and is a key cog playing an offensive defenseman game. i would consider more that this team came back from a loss in a game they let get away to beat a very formidable CCT team in an early season sort of must situation. If they had been swept at home, all early season momentum would be hard to regain.

                    Thanks for the post. Going from 0 to 5 points is a massive increase on a percentage basis. :-D

                      You are correct! I had thought they updated today but i was a bit early. Never saw the date on top. 5 votes!!! Now I feel a bit better.

                          The 5 points puts us 4th in the ECAC, all-be-it a distant 4th, after QU, Harvard, and Cornell.

                            • Daughter just saw an email stating outside spectators are allowed for soccer playoffs, and presumably football, or remaining outdoor sports playoffs. "For post-season outdoor games," outside spectators are required to
                              Pre register online (cap of 4 people, nobody under age 12),
                              required to sign a liability waiver as part of the pre-reg process,
                              required to show proof of vaccination, and required to show a negative test.
                              And of course, wear a mask.
                              Outside spectators will be seated separatly from RPI kids and staff, and will be socially distanced with assigned seating.
