  • RMU has 9 players who tested positive so this weekend is out. No formal announcement on season until the state of New York makes its ruling. Season has been bumped back tow weeks from what little news we have gotten. Looks like the first two weekends in Dec. then nothing until Jan. Nothing concrete here just what we are hearing from the girls. So plan on Dec 4-6 and 11-13 if all goes well. Hoping for the best expecting the worst!

      Yes, Hurst’s site is the same. I was wondering if there were layoffs at the SID departments, or if they’ve given up trying to share info when things are so day to day. The league should be updating their site though with basic info like a composite schedule and I don’t think they’ve even done that.
      I looked at the CHA site earlier and there was nothing for a schedule. That's not much of a surprise, though...the CHA doesn't exactly lead the pack with their website. I wish their media people would take some lessons from the WCHA website. Regardless of the choppy attempts at a season, the CHA should be putting out something - anything - to keep people informed, and that goes even more for the individual schools and SIDs (don't get me started on Penn State's SID).

      Thanks for that update. It's a shame it has to come from a fan discussion forum and not from the schools. And schools (okay, Penn State) wonder why a fan would want to create a little extra coverage to fill in the gaps.

        Thanks for the info. Echoing what Zed said, the boards have been a nice source of info over the years, though I certainly respect those close to the programs who know everything and use discretion in determining what to share.

        I don’t even know if I want a college season given the pandemic but as I said earlier in the summer its been frustrating to see what meaningful things have been axed, and what non essential stuff has continued. Cross state adult rec hockey tournaments are continuing, but the college kids are struggling just to get a game in.

            Let's hope this happens and gets the seasons going.

            • There might be games next weekend depending on testing with Lindenwood next Sunday and Monday. Hoping for the best.

              • It's still game day for Penn State, according to the Robert Morris schedule. Robert Morris hasn't posted anything about the series being cancelled, and Penn State hasn't even said there is (or ever was) a series scheduled, so who knows? Nothing at Robert Morris about players testing positive, either. Any Robert Morris fans out there with some scoop?

                • Here are the four known series for Penn State so far - Lindenwood and Robert Morris are the only two schools with full schedules posted right now. No times have been announced yet, and no streaming info yet, either.

                  Nov. 29-30 vs Lindenwood (both games at Penn State)

                  Jan. 15-16 vs Lindenwood (both games at Penn State)

                  • Keep the info coming! Did Eastwood play for Syracuse last night or has she finally graduated? When it says redshirt senior it throws me off. Also I'm surprised to see Mercyhurst at 10 with Nuutinen and Robillard having graduated, but at least it is a CHA team.

                    I guess I'll have to start coming to the site more regularly as I missed your link to the Syracuse Colgate game. Keep up those links as simulcast will probably be the only way to watch this year. I noticed they had listed one fan in attendance.

                    The PSU roster does look different. And I notice, PSU has out there that they signed two players.

                      • Now that at least half a season of CHA play has been announced, here's a look at the 2020-21 version of the Penn State women's hockey team.

                        This year it's nine freshmen, four sophomores, six juniors, and five seniors - 24 total on the roster. There are twelve forwards, seven defenders, and five goalies.

                        I guess it doesn't matter why some expected players aren't on the roster anymore, but some expected players aren't on the roster anymore. The senior class is down to four players and a fifth-year senior: Natalie Heising, Katie Rankin, Morgan Rolph, Chantal Burke, and fifth-year senior Jenna Brenneman.

                        There are five goalies, but only two that have a chance to start - seniors Jenna Brenneman and Chantal Burke. It remains to be seen if Brenneman has fully recovered from her injury and is back to form, but Chantal Burke was solid in net last season, to say the least, so there's no worries at goalie.

                        The forwards are very freshman-heavy: six freshmen, three sophomores, one junior, and two seniors. I can't even start to dream up a starting lineup, much less any lines at all, but freshman forwards will be jumping in right from the start. The defense should look the same as last season, as there is only one freshman and one sophomore this season, and four juniors and one senior. Jessica Adolfsson is a junior and back in the lineup, which is good news, and hopefully she is fully recovered and back at full strength.

                        Natalie Heising is the captain in her senior season, and she's going to be critical as a leader of a young offense. Look for sophomore Rachel Weiss to also play a big role - she looked very comfortable at D-1 as a freshman, so she should be one to watch this season.

                        Things kick off at home against Lindenwood November 29-30 (Sunday and Monday), both games at 2:00 Eastern. There's no word yet on any live streaming for either game.

                        • Penn State Athletics sent out an email saying all home games will be streamed on BTN+, but there are no CHA games on their schedule yet. I guess it will be something to watch for closer to game day.

                          Comment


                          • Well...Penn State has said that all home series will be broadcast on BTN+, and this coming weekend series is a home series. Checking the BTN+ schedule, there are no games listed on either day. BTN+ replied to my email saying if a game isn't on the schedule, it's not being broadcast. So either Penn State is wrong or BTN+ is wrong. The best plan, if you're expecting to watch this series, is to check the BTN+ schedule early on game day, I guess, and see if a livestream is happening or not.

                              Interesting 1920-21 roster as currently posted. Quite different from when I last looked in early October. Freshman Carrie Byrnes has been added. Mikayla Lantto, Morgan Rolph, Katie Rankin, Chantal Burke no longer rostered.

                                Good lord...three more seniors gone? That leaves Natalie Heising and Jenna Brenneman as the last two seniors on the team, and only Heising left in her class (Brenneman being a fifth-year senior, and Cam Leonard being a redshirt junior). Now the freshmen will definitely be on the clock, as there are six freshman forwards, and only two sophomores, one junior, and one senior. The defense losing Morgan Rolph in her senior season is a big hit, but otherwise they remain the same as last season, with the exception being that Jessica Adolfsson is back in the mix, so that kind of equals things out for this solid defense.

                                The two freshman goalies just saw their stock rise, with Chantal Burke off the roster now (ouch). If one of them can edge out redshirt junior Cam Leonard, she will be the backup goalie.
