So here's the rumor....

The CCHA, even though dormant, currently has a "brand name" better than the current WCHA. So they are bringing back the CCHA, which was the home of Michigan and Michigan State before the Big 10 hockey conference. From there, the goal is to bring in the 7 non-Alaska and non-Alabama teams from the WCHA into the CCHA. I suspect the Alaska teams may have to drop hockey, or at least DI hockey, as they are already cash-strapped because of travel. Huntsville has a decent tradition for a southern school, but without a conference, they might be done too. To get to 8 teams, the CCHA will likely try to add Western Michigan from the NCHC. That would open the door for Arizona State to join the NCHC.

BUT....the OTHER RUMOR is that the NCHC would like to add Minnesota State (makes sense, a powerhouse in recent years) AND add Bemidji State too! This would be a dream scenario for MSU and BSU. They would be in a conference with Duluth, St Cloud and UND. The Gophers would be soooooooooooo jealous.

If the NCHC could add Mankato (I will never call them Minnesota State) and BSU that would rock. We're already the best College Hockey Conference by a mile. This would make it two miles.

Alaska-Anchorage has dropped college hockey. This sucks! Alaska-Fairbanks is probably next.

The Beavers kick off their season on Sunday, hosting the Minnesota State Mavericks.




Expectations are high in Bemidji, as the team will try and improve on last year’s second-place finish in the conference. With many players returning, the Beavers should prove to be a difficult out again, and may challenge for a conference title.

Four of the team’s top scorers are back this season, and Bemidji coach Tom Serratore will lean heavily on forwards Owen Sillinger, Alex Ierullo and Aaron Miller. On defense, sophomore Elias Rosen should be a key piece again, as he added 5-19-24, and leads an experienced defensive corps.

“We like our group, and we’re obviously hoping there’s a carryover coming into this winter,” Bemidji State coach Tom Serratore said. “We have 14 upperclassmen and 14 underclassmen, six seniors and eight juniors. We’re gonna rely on this leadership group and the talented upperclassmen.”

The Beavers rode Zach Driscoll in net last year to plenty of success. The senior had a .937 save percentage, good enough for fourth in the nation.

“We return 22 players, led by our goaltender Zach Driscoll, who had a heck of a year last year,” Serratore said. “He’s gonna be asked to do a lot, just like we asked a lot out of him last year.”

Terrible start to the season. Beavers get crushed 5-0 by Minnesota State.

Multiple Minnesota State players tested positive for COVID, so today's game is postponed.

Gonna be a long (or short?) season for the Beavers.

Some crazy results down in the bubble last night
late-game lead changes
That could turn into a real bloodbath once they all get too familiar with themselves this month

Two UND players — Jasper Weatherby and Jacob Bernard-Docker — are planning to kneel during the playing of the national anthem as a means of protesting racial injustice.

Per a lengthy story in the Grand Forks Herald, they are believed to be the first Division I men’s college hockey players to kneel during the anthem.

That the demonstration will come in a fan-less arena because of the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t change the impact. The game is being televised locally in Grand Forks and being streamed.

“I think change is uncomfortable for a lot of people,” Weatherby told the Herald. “If this (demonstration) is uncomfortable for you, it’s a great opportunity to educate yourself and look inside and ask yourself, ‘Why does that upset me?’ and ‘Why is someone from my hometown doing this?’ We hope the hockey community knows that we stand with people of color and we are not OK with the way people are being treated in this country.”

Both UND players who are planning to kneel Wednesday are white — the types of allies needed to advance social justice reform. Weatherby in particular has a fascinating back story that has made him an outspoken advocate for reform.

“At the end of the day, we want UND to be a safe place,” Weatherby said. “As athletes who do have a platform, we stand with our brothers and sisters of color.”

“For me and Jasper, it was an opportunity to educate our team,” Bernard-Docker said of the movie night. “We’re trying to learn more every day as well. We’re not perfect. We still have a ton to learn. With our team being mostly white males, we’ve never had to deal with racial injustices. Just to open some of our guys’ eyes and show them the history of the past hundreds of years in America, and around the world, how minorities have been treated is important. It makes you realize how well we have it.”

Son who has been around the team and community says Weatherby has been actively involved in peaceful movements his entire time there, with his parents help and blessings.
Good on him.

this is awesome

The first portion of the NCHC’s will take place December 1st through December 20th entirely at Nebraska Omaha’s Baxter Arena, with all eight of the league’s teams playing 10 games in the pod to promote less travel during the season. Tuesday through Friday will likely see two games played per day, while Saturday and Sunday will likely have three games per day, with Mondays being left as an off-day. With ten games played over twenty days, teams will average about a game every other day.

There will be no fan attendance at the Omaha Pod, though all games will be broadcast on NCHC.tv

In addition to the pod schedule, the NCHC announced that teams will have the ability to schedule non-conference games this season, though none will take place until after January 1st. They also announced that at this point, the NCHC postseason tournament is scheduled to go on without any changes.

It was big news at The Ralph

Near-revolt that it wasn't held in the only hockey city that matters
Good thing they didn't.
Might need the space for beds soon. With the 1-in-9 affected rates lately.
