    What a game by Bergmanis

    Comment

      I'm trying to contain my hype because WJC *is* a small sample size tournament but man, Bergmanis has been flat *impressive* this whole tournament and this Latvia team is insanely likable.

      Maatta with two goals for Finland too!

        Bergmanis with Hatrick in historic Latvia win over Czech. Nice interview with him on TSN.

          Awesome night for the Cats! Also really impressed by Maxim Strbak. He might be go in the first 3 rounds next spring. One of the youngest players in the tournament and he is playing a ton of minutes for Slovakia. I wonder if they'll bring him in 2023-24, with Bump, Strand and maybe Kinsman.

            Maatta looked great in the quarterfinal. Love how they use him on the powerplay, just sit him in front and have him try to use his strength to beat the defender. Would love to see the Cats try that this year. Wish USA out I guess Finland is my team now!

            Not to be a downer, but Munzenberger got absolutely undressed on that first Finland goal. Missed the chance to break up the pass and then got burned on the give and go.

              While the rosters aren't OFFICIALLY out yet, a tweet from student equipment manager Alex Beauregard of the locker room seems to indicate 9 D this year. Long, Leahy, Luca, and Stucker return, joined by transfer Eric Gotz (MTU) and freshmen Ralfs Bergmanis, Lucas Jones, Xavier Henry, and Philip Tornqvist. 9-man blueline.

                Really great to have Stucker and Long back. Curious to see what we get from Gotz

                This is a massive year for Munzenberger. Time to show he's a big time player/pro prospect. He's definitely shown signs and improved but I think this team needs him to take a step forward.

                  Munzenberger is interesting because he had to make a huuuuuuuuge jump last season. German U20 league right to Hockey East...that is not an easy jump to take, no disrespect to the talent in the U20 German league but it's not exactly the USHL for example, and Luca didn't drown (even if he did make some inexperienced mistakes)

                        Media poll has us 9th. Seems right. Will be interesting to see coaches.

                          Yesss! I might need to get a Joel Maatta jersey just because the umlauts over his name look awesome. Gemini Athletic makes quality stuff. Can't wait to see what they go with for the home jersey.

                            9th does seem about right to me. Given what they've done the last few years, there is really no way that they could've been picked higher. I am really going back and forth about what to expect from this team. At times really optimistic and at others I'm really concerned they're just not going to be able to score.

                            Trust the process!

                            When does the in season thread start? :-)

                              Love the new jersey. Reminds me a bit of the Frozen Four ones, St. Louis and Co wore back in the day. 9th seems realistic, they seem pretty solid on the defensive side but just need goal scorers. We'll see what this season brings...
