    Thanks for the heads-up on the football game. We didn't even TRY to park near the rink.

      I'm excited for next Friday. Wonder if we'll see Kinkaid play right away - I hope so. He's quick. Can't figure out how he missed the first three shots of the shoot-out.
      Haha, yes, that was me. Pretty disappointed with the turnout but I guess most normal people would go to an important football game over a hockey scrimmage. I'm just not "most normal people."

      I, too, cannot wait for Friday. Union vs. Maine. Kinkaid made a few great saves but Corey looks good as well. I guess it is possible that Coach splits them up like he did with Corey and Justin a few years back. We'll see.

        I would think Milan and Kincaid will see split time for the first to weekends.
        Going to be a true test for the first four games!

          Still feels weird to be saying something like this considering the high quality of opponents but anything short of .500 after the first two weekends is going to be disappointing. This season should be a fun time to be a UC fan and I can't wait!

                Congratulations to Mike Wakita on being named Union's captain for 2009-2010 season. IMO he's a great choice. Best of luck to Mike.

                      Wakita is definitely a great choice for captain - big kudos. A real 100% effort type of player. Congrats to the asst. caps too. A lot of possible choices, so a rotation makes sense IMO.

                      On the recruiting front, Heisenberg's reporting a d-man for next season - Michael Ingoldsby of Oakville in the OJAHL. Listed at 6-1, 188# with 8 points in 6 games so far this season. He was a teammate of Jeremy Welsh's last season and is Oakville's captain. Looks like a another solid pickup. http://ojhlsite.stats.pointstreak.co...&seasonid=3770

                      Also on the recruit front, forward Daniel Carr of St. Albert in the AJHL has had 16 points in his last 5 games and is currently tied for the league lead in scoring. And to answer Wholin's earlier comment on the off-season thread, Carr looks very young because he is only 17 years old. He will actually be a true 18-year old frosh when he matriculates - a rarity at U in the past few years. Maybe an interesting trend, but next year's class also has Sullivan who will be 19 in '10 and only one recruit so far (Ingoldsby) who'll be a 21 year old. Perhaps a sign that U is getting a better rep out there in the junior/prep circuits and attracting younger players with (hopefully) more potential.

                        Just FYI for Saturdays Game vs. Maine.

                        Union Football vs. Hobart 2pm
                        Union Hockey vs. Maine 7pm

                        Should be no problems for parking, but just FYI cause football will be running towards a 5pm end time.

                          I'm sure some of you were at the Ice Breaker reception last night at the Nott. I thought it was a great new event in a spectacular setting. President Ainlay and Board of Trustees Chairman, Frank Messa, spoke enthusiastically and passionately about the hockey program and how important it is to the college. Several team members were there including newly elected captain, Mike Wakita.

                          I'd like to put my pitch in to all of you out there who haven't already done so, to consider a membership in the Blades. Last year GBs raised over $100K which was applied directly to the hockey program and which has made a huge difference according to coach Leaman.

                          There are new reduced membership levels for season ticket holders and first time members ($50) and a new $15 student level. Sorry about the advertisement, .

                            I'll second Wholin's shameless plug for joining the Blades. Whether you get involved with it or not, the money goes to helping the hockey program and helps pay for recruiting trips to western Canada, expenses for road trips (like to St. Cloud this year).. It's an important cog in keeping the Dutch competitive.

                              I was there at the Icebreaker event at the Nott as well. I was the guy that Coach Leaman referenced during his speech...I was wearing the Union Hockey 7th player t-shirt. Good times.

                              I, too, encourage everyone to join the garnet blades. Let's go U!

                                Kudos to you and keep up the great work. Does the Coach know you are a Maniac?
