If you’re like me and can’t wait for the college hockey season (exhibition games only 40 days away), head on over to the College Hockey reddit page. Right now, redditors are in the middle of doing 60 Teams in 60 Days feature. Reading the rundown of all the teams and facts about the school has really gotten me excited for the season. The teams are sorted by conference. Here is a rundown by conference:
Big Ten: Done, except for Michigan State
ECAC: Brown was today, remaining teams go until 9/4
Arizona State 9/5 (will go into more about my feelings about ASU in a future blog)
Atlantic Hockey: 9/6-9/16
Hockey East: 9/25-10/6
Some school write-ups are better than others, but I’ve learned something about every school from them. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series. Gets me excited until puck drop!
Minnesota Wild Assistant Coach Darryl Sydor entered a treatment center in California for at least 30 days after drunk driving and child endangerment charges. Sydor’s blood alcohol content was .30 and was pulled over while driving his 12-year-old son to a hockey practice.
Bidding closed last Friday for 2017 Regionals. Regional sites for this coming year are in Albany, Worcester, Cincinnati, and St. Paul. It should be announced sometime in the next month or two. With the recent push by some of the bigger schools to put regionals back on campus, it will be interesting to see the bids, especially in the Midwest region.
That’s all for now. I have a few ideas for future posts as well as other staples I’ll do during the season. Thanks for checking it out. I hope you stick around!
