The NCAA hockey schedule gets under way this weekend with the Islanders NCAA prospects participating in some big games and early season tournaments.
Anders Lee-Notre Dame-Lee had 1G and five shots on goal in a 4-0 exhibition win on Saturday night in South Bend against Western Ontario. The Irish open up their regular season this weekend with two very tough road games at defending national champion Minnesota-Duluth.
Brock Nelson-University of North Dakota-Nelson netted two goals and was named the first star in an 8-1 exhibition win against Regina on Saturday night in Grand Forks, ND. UND opens up their regular season by hosting the Ice Breaker Tournament. UND opens up with Air Force on Friday night and then either plays Boston College or Michigan State on Saturday night. You can read my preseason interview with Brad Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald here.
Corey Trivino-Boston University-The Terriers lost a tough exhibition game on Friday night to St. Francis Xavier 6-4. Trivino had one shot on goal and finished +1 for BU. BU opens up their regular season on Saturday night against New Hampshire in Agganis Arena.
Jason Clark-University of Wisconsin-The Badgers didn’t get the luxury of playing an exhibition game before the regular season gets under way. The Badgers open up with two games this weekend against Northern Michigan at home in the Kohl Center. You can read my preseason interview with Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal here.
Scott Mayfield-University of Denver-Denver played McGill University in an exhibition on Friday night in a game that ended in a 2-2 tie. Mayfield recorded one shot on goal. The Pioneers play the U.S. Under-18 team on Saturday night before playing two tough games against Boston College and Boston University next weekend.
