    One thing I have learned in my short time with the program is the communication is fantastic on the men's side but the women are an after thought

      CHA hasn’t released anything yet either. I’m choosing to pretend they are just wrapping up negotiations with ESPN+. :-)

      CHA/Atlantic hired a new media / pr person this summer so hopefully info is forthcoming soon. Granted that’s a bit separate from the Penn State issue you guys are discussing.

        ESPN+ is going to do an exclusive package only for Mercyhurst games...haven't you heard? ~

        Penn State women's hockey staff have never been good with communication. I don't know what's so hard about it - make someone with women's hockey an official point of contact for fans so we can get direct answers, specifically about the women's hockey program, game days, streaming, tickets, parking, whatever. Not the standard university-wide canned answers...specific answers to specific questions about women's hockey. I love Penn State, but I do envy small schools who probably have no problem interacting with fans.

            Your link isn't working - if that was the article on defenders, here's the link:

            https://www.collegian.psu.edu/sports...ock_id=1035497

            I don't know how the author of the article started with "Penn State has all of its key defenders returning...". Someone should remind her who Jessica Adolfsson is, and let her know that Adolfsson is playing hockey back in Sweden now. Thankfully, she is the only defender not returning, so Penn State should be solid that way. What's the scoop on Clarkson graduate transfer Avery Clark? What does she bring to the defense?

              Wow...the local paper actually wrote an article about the Penn State women's hockey team: https://www.centredaily.com/sports/c...254270193.html

                  ​We're one week out from the start of the Penn State 2021-22 season, with a home weekend series against St. Lawrence​ - I can't wait!

                  This has been a really weird offseason. Normally, there would be plenty to talk about, with the program usually losing a small group of seniors to graduation: how will the team adjust to the graduate losses/who will fill in the gaps left by the graduates/who needs to step into what roles this season/etc. We haven't gotten to talk about any of that with this Penn State team, because the only active player not returning is defender Jessica Adolfsson. Her spot has been filled by Clarkson graduate transfer Avery Mitchell. That's it - everyone else is back from last season.

                  To make it worse, in a good way, last year's team was on fire until the CHA tournament. That was the only shortfall - not finishing the amazing season with a conference championship. Other than that, this team was incredible, and they're all back this season, with four freshmen added to the mix, too. What's to talk about? I can't even remember any glitches from last season because this team won so often.

                  They start the season ranked #10 nationally and ranked #1 in the CHA, in preseason polls. That's really not surprising, since this is the same team as last season with some additions. Like pretty much the entire offseason, "I got nothing"...so I guess we'll see how hungry this team is, with St. Lawrence first on the menu next weekend - should be a blast!

                  Head coach Jeff Kampersal will be live tonight on the Penn State Coaches Show at 6:05 (Eastern): https://gopsusports.com/watch/?Live=1153&type=Live

                    If you're going to listen to the replay of tonight's Penn State Coaches Show talk with Jeff Kampersal (https://gopsusports.com/watch/?Archi...8&type=Archive), here's a timeline so you don't have to sit through all the commercials:

                    Kampersal starts at 4:00

                    Commercial break from 12:15 - 16:04

                    Kampersal ends at 24:40

                    • Not hockey related, but Penn State related - tonight is Penn State football's annual "whiteout" game at 7:30, and apparently small town State College was already packed and crazy last night. If they draw the usual crowd for a whiteout, that's 110,000 people in Beaver Stadium, making it the fourth most-populous place in the state, behind only Philly, Pittsburgh, and just behind Allentown. It's always a surreal thing bringing that many people into a town of 42,000. ESPN is set up on the lawn of Old Main for all the pregame hype stuff, too, doing the ESPN College Gameday show.

                      I'm about 15 minutes away...I think I'll stay where I'm at.

                          thats good Zed. From what I can see Lindenwood and RIT are using stretch. Can’t figure out what Hurst is doing. I assume Stretch but the games aren’t listed on there yet . Hopefully they publicize it soon. And yes I will keep hoping for the Hurst only ESPN+ option. :-)

                          Cuse usually does their own free broadcasts.

                            I wonder how much a school can make on streaming the games, because I'm sure schools will want to make up for the money losses from last season without fans at arenas. I'm sure that's what is behind Penn State's new "pay to park" policy.

                              Assuming you were pleased by the result, congratulations! The effort by your fanbase was amazing; it made for great TV. And it was a pleasure to root for Penn State for a change! Often we're the bad guys at the Whiteout.

                              I do understand that having your campus totally taken over by one event is a mixed blessing. Here in Columbus, authorities have estimated that if you count all of the tailgaters, sports bar patrons & restaurant viewers, as many as 200,000 fans descend on the OSU campus area during Football Home Games. Granted, that very high number comes from pre-pandemic times.

                              Whatever the real number, it certainly complicates things for other events. Like, say, Women's Hockey. We're actually competing with Football Game Days THREE times this season -- including next Saturday.

                                It was kind of strange not having Ohio State or Michigan for the whiteout game, but I don't think Penn State would've beaten either of them. If this game had been at Auburn, I think Auburn would've won it. Still, it ended up going down to the last play of the game, and that makes for a fun time for fans. I'm not a big fan of football - I shared an elevator ride downtown with Joe Paterno years ago, when I was a mailman in State College, and that's about the extent of my football experience.

                                I haven't even looked at the football schedule, but if women's hockey plays on a football (or basketball) game day, I feel sorry for any fans driving to Pegula...pack a lunch!
