As has been pointed out, probably something did happen on the overseas road trip. Prob bound to happen in ones’s career in one form or another - it’s called learning while growing up ; better sooner than later.
will be a good lesson & experience and kid will be better off in the long run. He absolutely had confidence of HC as well, who took him over to the NESN studios in between periods of the Bruins game Thursday night. He was presented as Captain to Billy Jaffe & he presented himself and the program well, laying out goals for the Dartmouth gm and beyond.
Far as wearing any jersey with A or C or what have you, prob was a price to be paid for whatever happened, and he has paid it. Good kid & holidays coming at a good time so leave it all in this year & gear up for 2nd half. Happy Holidays! 🙂
Some extracts from Diehard Dogs postings re what's happening in the pipeline:
----“Team USA won the Bronze Medal in the World Jr. A Challenge, defeating the Czech Republic 2-1 in OT. Gunnarwolfe Fontaine was pretty much the offensive star of the US team with 5-5-10 in six games. Sam Colangelo chipped in with 1-1-2, also in six.”
----“…Currently, we have 4 guys in the top 15 in scoring in the USHL. Ty Jackson is sitting at 27 points, in fourth place in total scoring, 3 points behind the league leaders...His brother Dylan is right behind him at 26 points going for 11-15-26. Sam Colangeo at 12-12-24, followed by teammate Gunnarwolfe at 12-10-22. Those four figure to have starting spots locked in for next season.”
----“…guys more than a year away who are doing quite well would be Jack Hughes who is a point per game guy for the US-17. Ryan St.Louis…has not been as prolific scoring, but seems to be progressing nicely…Nate Haney is playing at a half-point per game clip in Cedar Rapids…Matt Choupani is doing a little better then Nate in his first season in the USHL going for 10-8-18 in 25 games…”
"Through the years, we ever will acclaim........"
While we're on the subject of recruit progress, Justin Hrychowian was doing well in Cedar Rapids until being injured about a month ago. AFAIK, he'll be back after the Christmas break. He is still expected on campus next fall. Stanley Cooley is still just 17 but is among the top 4 scorers on a strong team with a line of 34-9-21-30-46 and was one of 8 players in Alberta chosen for the CJHL Top Prospects game. Jack Williams in Muskegon doesn't have a big scoring line, but has a terrific PR person. There's a flattering article in The NE Hockey Journal about what a sterling human being he seems to be. Well, I suppose we need a few of those blended in with the rest of the gang. BTW, He's from York, ME, and has been an offensive force on his previous teams. It's not at all unusual for a younger player entering the USHL to take a year or more to adjust to the stronger level of play. Lastly, Ross Mitton, has been trade to the Omaha Lancers and seems to be doing nicely. He's reputed to play a rugged style of hockey. I suspect that he may be the kind of player who needs to be seen to be appreciated.
Incidentally, Matt Choupani, who played for Lac St. Louis, where Davies and Bucheler preceded him, scored a hat trick earlier this month. The other interesting item involves Gunnarwolfe (which one, you ask.) seems to have a Solow-like knack for scoring big goals that tie a game in the last minutes, or win important games in OT! Those dog piles can be dangerous! We were fortunate to get his big sister Schuyler. who is a high scoring junior D for our ladies team. She may be good enough to play for the Men's team - as she did in high school. We may have to call on her if we lose anyone else to an injury.

Dartmouth recap/A look at where things stand in the conference and national picture halfway through
Last edited by TheRevengeance; 12-18-2019 at 09:24 AM.
have they been above expectations for rebuild type season (yeah sorta, with 11 W at halfway point, winning some (t'giving) holiday hardware; kinda nice!). have they left opportunities on the table (hc, mc ties), hurting their pwr, maybe staying around the pairwise bubble.?. also yes.
with a solid 2nd half can they overcome it? not sure this is the year...
then again, that's why they play the games. Go NU
GO NU HOCKEY
Always bullish on the future.
We don't always win Hockey East or the Beanpot (#trilogy).. but when we do.. we are the Champions
Question, but what has happened to Goldstein? He had a good freshman year and has disappeared.
"Through the years, we ever will acclaim........"
Any word on the injured D men?
So many rules have been put in place to protect the players' privacy that the coaches practically deny even knowing the players when they are injured. The most you can get is "upper body injury" or something similar unless some has broken his leg in front of a game crowd. Occasionally, someone source goes out on a limb by saying, "He should be back sometime before ….graduation".
Perhaps in a place like Grand Forks or Orono, where the local college team is the biggest (only) game in the area code, the story gets leaked out along with a bunch of other things that should never leave the locker room. Not so in Boston!

It turns out that Mr. Goldstein played in pain for much of last season due to a nagging injury that apparently didn't heal properly. He underwent surgery to correct the problem. Since half the season is gone, it has been decided to that he will "redshirt" this season and return next year as a R-junior. Hopefully he uses this year to add some muscle, which will help him next year in the role of "disruptor" where his speed is most useful. OTOH, Mr. Villela's absence has been a coach's decision.
Expect to see some or all of the injured D corps on the ice in early January. As for Pantano, the feeling is that he has played very well, even in the game vs. bu. He gave up a couple of softies against Dartmouth, but overall the guys seem to have the kind of confidence in him that allows them to play the speed game that they prefer. I'd give him an A- if I were handing out the mid-term grades.
TMM are you compiling the rankings?
The matter of the next goalie recruit is being attended to.
Happy Chanukah and then a Merry Christmas to all.
As for a goalie recruit, one candidate could be Thomas Gale who recently decommitted from Dartmouth. Both he and Scarpa went to the same prep school.
Jordan Harris makes the 2020 WJC roster.
Congrats to him and NU & all the best to the team.
