    What sticks out to me is that it's effective 1 April. I would hope he has some say into the new AD hire, as he's been a supporter of the hockey program, and hope it'e finalized by then. Otherwise, never know what stance the new president may take.

    Heisenberg recruiting site says UAH has another forward recruit. Michael Webley from Gloucester - same team as another recruit Creppin.

    Still looks like some holes to fill, assuming everybody coming back.

    Heard today that Jared is leaving for Germany; not sure if it's after this season with the Chicago Wolves or immediately. Also understand he is the father of a 17-month old child. Any idea how Munroe is doing in Uzbekistan (or wherever he has gone)?

    Still upset that Penn State makes a claim to UAH's 1984 national championship, too. Just sayin'.

    Cheers to everyone.

Reading dressed 5 D, so it looked as if he was being used to spell others but still saw 4/5 shifts in each of the first two periods. Was a 2-2 game until Cincinnati scored the eventual game winner with about 5 mins to go, so as to be expected, both teams shortened their benches in the third.

    But he didn't look out of place at all and you didn't notice him - which is a good thing for a defenseman, who usually only draw attention when they get beat. He was even on the night.
    I had wondered if you'd gone.

    Matt played tonight in Cincinnati, and Cam went back down to Connecticut today. As Johnson is up to sit behind Lundqvist, Cam should get the bulk of the minutes, which will be great for his further development. For those following along, Cam gets this shot because of an injury to Marty Biron. Biron blocked Scott Munroe in both Philly and with the Isles. I guess my voodoo doll finally worked.

    Recruiting web site says Penn State has signed its first recruits. Looking at the age of the players, they will be headed to Penn State next year?

    Not sure what (if anything) this means for Penn State's start date.

    Good to hear that.

    I had thought that UAH would be returning to RPI in 11-12 since RPI was in Huntsville this season, but from what has been revealed about RPI's schedule on the season-ticket application, that isn't happening. I guess either UAH's participation in RPI's Holiday tourney was regarded as a return trip, or a return trip will take place in a later year.

    BTW, RPI's tourney also has disappeared, although it could come back in some future year.

    In a normal year, I could ask and answer these kinds of questions. Right now I cannot, as I am working in the Sports Information office to backfill while SID Antoine Bell is serving as interim AD. As I am functionally a University employee as of 17 Feb 2011, I can't ask for and then disseminate that kind of information. I am also prohibited from commenting on player commitments prior to those players signing a National Letter of Intent. You will note that I have discussed recruiting at length in previous posts, but said posts came prior to my hire date.

    The only schedule point that I can discuss is what Jim Harris said at the news conference announcing the hiring of Chris Luongo as head coach. In that presser, Jim disclosed the Nashville series with Merrimack as well as a home-and-home with Ohio State over the next two seasons. As UAH traveled to Columbus this year, common sense implies a return visit this year. Past that, you will need to perform your own investigations.

    The AHCA meetings take place at the end of April, right? I'm wondering if the Big Ten has to make an official decision about the formation of the BTHC by that time before the coaches can start talking realignment.
    The AHCA meets in April, yes. I would expect that BTHC considerations would be front-and-center unless the league makes its future known prior to that date.
