It may be a bit early to get his going, but the boys are back in school and I am sure most teams are having Captain's practices.  October 27th can't get here quick enough.  Any predictions for the season?

I'll go way out on a limb and suggest Adrian and St Norbert control the NCHA...

I'm going to pick Endicott to win it all in just their third year of NCAA III hockey. The Gulls were a really strong team last year and have lost essentially no one to graduation; tons of firepower up and down that lineup. Great facility, relentless recruiting, strong coaching and a roster stuffed with D-I transfers. That's the recipe for fast-track program advancement.

Keep an eye out for Utica College as well.
Tied with Endicott 3-3 during pre-season scrimmage.
Solid newbies and good base returning including some firepower.

Looks like a few team have a lot of returners. Should be a good season all around.

Definitely an interesting week 1.  A couple of unexpected upsets.

Was glad to see a shake up across the board in the top 15.
Platty losing at home was tough, and norwich taking one on the chin to start was interesting

The Norwich and UMB matchup this Friday should be interesting. Norwich is definitely going to be hungry for a win.

I am def keeping an eye out for UC, Endicott and a few others here in upstate NY-
Oswego and Hobart being 2 that could all make some noise!

UC has a good program. I went to a lot of their games before my son started playing further East.
