    • Any whispers or leaks on what our non-conference schedule will look like ? Sure would be nice to add a few fun fan trips into the mix....i.e. let's not do 4 games in Alaska again !

        • I have long wondered who RPI Hockey Stats is and if (s)he posts here. Anyway, he posted his projected lineup. https://twitter.com/RPIHockeyStats/s...12180281901062 I am sure that we all agree with it in part and disagree with it on other parts. The most glaring omission to me is Justin Addamo who reportedly is going to use his COVID year. The second most glaring omission is that his top-6 forwards is missing one right wing. He also doesn't include Bourgault as even a possible freshman. I will stop there.

              Addamo is not coming back. For the top 6 RW, I think they mean that we have a hole there because Gagnon, Evans, McIsaac, etc. aren't top 6 quality (unless Evans lights it up immediately or Gagnon takes a big step forward).

                Yet another blow with Addamo not returning. I didn't expect him to return until you mentioned that he was.

                  Yeah I thought he was for a bit, but I was wrong unfortunately

                  • Evans, Brackett, Gagnon have the skill for top 6. I think Finn brown will surprise some people. Young man can really rip the puck. Danny ciccarello is built like a Mack truck will also surprise people. His shot is deadly. He was used wrong in juniors. I think the forward group will be just fine. I’m concerned about our d core. Kjeilberg is a huge loss.

                      Agree on Evans and Gagnon. Disagree on Brackett; I think his grit and speed makes him a bottom 6 guy. His hands and scoring don't really stand out in my eyes. I still really like Schreifels and think he has top 6 potential. Brown was a great recruiting get 2 years ago, but he hasn't progressed as much in the BCHL. Hopefully, he can find his mojo here because I love his scoring ability and shot like you mentioned. Agree on Ciccarello.

                      For the D core, we'll definitely add one from the portal. Just have to hope it's a good player who can play in the top 4. Ardanaz and Smolinski are good enough to play key roles right away. Once classes are done here in a few weeks, I'll watch the recruits and give more complete scouting reports.

                      • Nick Strom, a left defenseman in the portal from Western Michigan is apparently headed our way. Interestingly enough, here's his Elite Prospects page that doesn't show him at WMU: https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/380988/nick-strom

                          It looks like he red-shirted this season.

                              3.75 *'s was his final rating.

                                I don't think he redshirted: he lists himself as RPI '25 on his profile. Coach Smith has done a good job finding transfers that have been productive players, including some who did not see much action at their previous schools. I like the pieces of the profile you've highlighted here. Welcome, Nick!
