    Robert Morris has released a 2020-21 schedule on their women's hockey page (https://rmucolonials.com/sports/wome...hedule/2020-21), so there will be a season after all, abbreviated as it is. They are the only CHA team to release a schedule so far. What's interesting about the Robert Morris schedule is that many of their two-game series are split between home and away arenas - one game at home and the second game at the opponent's rink.

    Penn State will play them November 20 at Robert Morris, and November 21 at Penn State.

    No Reporting being done at all - maybe a season - maybe not. Are commits signing - maybe maybe not.

    Apparently USA hockey can bring players together all across state lines for their camp - I wonder if all those players will have to quarantine for 14 days when they return? I think that pretty much puts an end to any whispers of any Big Ten Hockey until the Spring.

    I think we will see a lot of churn to the commits with some delaying/PG with the log jam being created now with the extra year given to this year's players. Not sure how the scholarship situation is working out either. Has the NCAA allowed an increase like for fall sports? Even if it is allowed, can schools afford it?

    Seeing some information that Emma Conner (Edina High School) is now a University of Minnesota commit for 2022. Thought she was committed to Penn State for 2021.

    The Penn State women's hockey team added some shine to their 2019-20 national championship win with a 7-0 shutout of the women's U.S. National Team in an exhibition game at Pegula Ice Arena.

    Fifth-year senior goalie Jenna Brenneman played the first period and stopped all three shots. Senior goalie Chantal Burke played the second period and stopped the shot she faced. Redshirt junior goalie Cam Leonard played the third period and stopped both shots.

    Senior forwards Natalie Heising and Katie Rankin both scored hat tricks for Penn State, and senior goalie Chantal Burke also scored on a crazy clear from behind her net that caught Maddie Rooney off guard at the other end. Four more Penn State goals were called off by the refs, citing the mercy rule.

    Head coach Jeff Kampersal said he was pleased with the effort from his team, who were seeing the ice for the first time since March, and had only held two practices, in the parking lot in street shoes, since then. "It was challenging to play this game with Covid masks on, but we kept at it", said Kampersal. Real fans weren't allowed at the game, and were replaced by twelve cardboard cutouts of fans placed randomly throughout the seats. The cutouts were allowed at the post-game "skate with the players", but were not allowed to skate.

    Pegula Ice Arena is now the new walk-up Covid-19 testing site for (asymptomatic) Penn State students and staff. Penn State has reported 3,166 cases of Covid-19 since opening for 2020-21 classes.

    And this article says "Under current state guidance, public tickets will not be sold for 2020-21 Penn State hockey games":

    Well, they did pick up five freshmen forwards, so if at least a couple of them turn out to be hotshots, things offensively should be okay. I just thought Shea Nelson was really ready for a hell of a senior season. I'm still shaking my head over seeing five goalies on the roster...that's just trippy!

    Kind of a surprise, but senior forward Shea Nelson is no longer on the Penn State roster. If they do end up having a season, she's going to be a big loss for Penn State. Senior forward Sophie Slattery is gone now, too.

    There is no Big Ten for Women's Hockey. You have Penn State, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Ohio State for the women. What works for the men does not translate. It shall be interesting.

    Perhaps the CHA will follow suit shortly?
