  • Independents 2023-2024

    Any of us still around here? Surprised to not see a thread already for those of us homeless teams.

    First look at the Nanooks this year against Vancouver Island and they looked good. Sure, its a club team but I don't think the team overlooked their opponent and the flow was solid all game.

    For a 8-1 victory exhibition victory, it was not without excitement, first fire evacuation at a sporting event for me. Biggest question mark for the UAF will be in net. Looking forward to the Nanook tradition of strong goaltending.

      I plan on giving out a weekly recap and awards for the independent teams this season, along with team rankings. I will include Augustana this year since they are not eligible for the CCHA playoffs and they play ten games against us independents.
      Hoping to release my preseason rankings and all Independent team tonight.

          Thanks for starting this thread!
          The Alaska teams had a great start!
          ASU plays the University of Arizona club team on Friday, hopefully that will generate enough interest with the Tucson supporters to start a D1 team there.

              I am still here. Nice to see Lindenwood get a W last night at Air Force. Played really well but gave up the lead with 1 second left to break my heart. Rebounded to get the W in OT though to unbreak it. LOL. Looking forward to the season. They should be a little better but man they play a rough schedule.

                  I hope the 16 - 0 drubbing of the Arizona club team awakens some alumni to finance their move to D1, to get even. But it probably would have better odds if the score was turned around.......a huge win would get more $$$$ ?

                    UAF made the kind of hockey history on October 10th 2015 that no team wants to claim – the Nanooks became the first NCAA Division I victim of Arizona State.

                        Bringing back the classics!

                        My own favorite is, I knew I was flying into _airbanks when we landed just after a mobile home park.
                        Just to be clear. My disinterest in this team became of the Uni's disinterest. Without the success of the hockey team, the other teams would not be where they are. Way to pay back the hockey team. **** UAA.

                          Was glad the UAA / Air Force game was on youtube tonight. UAA looked pretty impressive ... pesky and determined. Jared Whale was solid in net. Glad to see them 3-2-0 so early into the season. Hope to make it to a game one of these days, if I can get tickets!

                          From ADN:

                          "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

                          UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

                              Hi Will! I didn't know you were in Texas. Our daughter, s-i-l and 3 granddaughters moved to San Antonio a year and a half ago. We go down for a month or more in December / January. Hope you are both well!
