  • RPI Off-season

    Truly enjoyed watching the '23-'24 version of the Engineers. They developed throughout the season and provided great hockey entertainment. I have not yet focused on the plus/minus of the graduating class and the incoming frosh. Any thoughts from folks on where the team goes from here?

    According to the RPI social media account, it seems the seniors joined with other college seniors and played Team China in an exhibition, winning 3-1.

              In my opinion, one of the most significant contributions that a coaching staff can make is to lay out a very demanding but achievable off-season training plan for the team, and then communicate with players as to how they are progressing, and offering encouragement. A team that returns in the fall, in shape and confident, is the objective. Impossible to tell, as an outsider, how this is progressing. But just saw an instagram post by Nutescu that she is hard at it already, in May. When I was in my early fifties I thought I was in great shape so decided to join my daughter (RPI hockey grad) on one of her summer workouts. Dropped out after 15 minutes and the next day my legs were cement.

                  According to an RPI women's hockey Instastory, RPI received a commitment for 2005 from Ella Newman-Mixon, an RD for the Central York Panthers.

                    Apparently that was false as Dartmouth lists Byron Pool from NMU as their new AC.

There's no men's game that night so I'm not sure why it is so early. I guess SHU doesn't expect many non-student fans for women's games. In any case, it's still better than the assortment of local rinks the team used before opening Martire. I remember going to an RPI-SHU game many years ago on the second sheet at the Wonderland of Ice in Bridgeport (about 3 miles from SHU's campus) that couldn't have had more than 40 fans.

                            Not sure there is any way to schedule enough tough OOC opponents that would prepare for the level of play in an ECAC where the top 7 slots are virtually assigned before the season begins! i suppose though that it might be better to win a higher percentage of games and build some momentum and come into the league schedule as a team with at least a positive record. We had a lot of girls leave after last season and will need a few games to fill in all the blanks and get everyone on the same page.
