    In his first shift of his first NHL game, Lucas Condotta scored his first NHL goal against the Bruins last night. Not really surprised, as Condotta has scored against Swayman before. He got his 2nd career collegiate goal against Swayman up in Orono in November of 2018 (credit to Russ Bedel on the research of that one last night).

I believe they'll also bring in Jaiden Moriello, Shawn O'Donnell, Girts Silkalns and Jak Vaarwerk, so that makes 15 forwards.

    Any updates on the future plans of Jake Stella and Filip Fornaa Svensson? They are both 24 years old.

    I don't believe there's any room to add to the defense. If nothing changes, they currently have 7 players returning. They have to bring in '02 recruits, Ben Brunette and Sean Kilcullen. I think they will also bring in Adam Cardona, so that makes 10 defensemen on the roster.


    The way Fornaa-Svensson spoke in this senior tribute video, it sounds like he is coming back. https://***********/riverhawkhockey/...FOeYdtq3w-44SQ

No clue what Norm's thinking other his interest in a 25 yo player from HC. Yikes indeed!!!!

    I would imagine, just like we are seeing with regular recruiting the past couple of years, it's not easy to bring in high-scoring forwards here because of the system.

    They played a really tough schedule to start the season. South Carolina was #23 when the played. Virginia Tech was #11 when they played. Florida Gulf Coast was unranked at the time, but is now #16. That's 8 of the first 11 games on the schedule. They also played 3 at Binghamton, the defending league champs. Not surprisingly, they went 0-11 in those games, and many of them weren't close, though the Binghamton games were (one went extra innings).

    Weren’t they picked to finish 2nd in the AE preseason poll or am I dreaming?

    I don't know. When we were going to move up I thought field hockey and baseball were going to be the most viable options at doing well between experience and facilities.

    Track is often it's own world and I'm glad we have done well but I admit I am a team sport guy first.

    I'm a veteran of the mid to late 70's rivalry days ("Merrimack stinks, just like the river" and the FEVER chants were 2 of my favorites from the Chiefs fans). Kids nowadays are just not that clever.
    Yeah, I didn't get it. I understand that you (the students) haven't been there so it's tough to do the "act like you've been there before" thing, but three/four minutes into the game and a F You Lowell chant starts up. For no reason? And then is repeated over and over? I have no problems with swearing, but c'mon be better.

This tournament has been mostly garbage, and generally I would have rooted for the HE teams, but the Merrimack student section absolutely disgusted me at the Garden, so I was OK with them getting their asses handed to them.
