Congrats, but is there a story behind a connection between the BHH and Umass? That banner is like 95 miles from the campus.

Jerry Keefe finally gets his chance. Promoted to Northeastern head coach, with Madigan being named AD. An outstanding move imo that better fits each of their strengths. Rumors that Paul Pearl may fill the associate head coach vacancy too.

I'm hoping to get back to Matthews this year. I saw that RPI is not allowing non-students to attend this year, and I doubt they'll be the only one go to that way before the season starts.

I was able re up for season Tix for Quinnipiac this year, but perhaps that was a ploy to earn some interest on the money before fans aren’t allowed again, and they have to refund the money.

They’ve got two at home v North Dakota, so hope the fans in person makes it to late Fall.

DB - I re-upped for UConn hockey tix the other day. I'm hoping at the very least they allow fans to go if they have proof of vaxx. FWIW UConn plays at the XL Center, not on campus (well last year they did but only because of Covid).

Awesome, StuckonYouk! QU is closer to my house, and I'm in with a group of friends in one of the sections - about 25-30 peeps, although I'm not direct friends with all of them. Free parking on campus, too, and reasonable concession prices, which is great for kids. My son started going to games when he was 8 ish, but is now a moderately surly 16 year old, but one who again might be more willing to go to games with friends. It's a more modern barn with less "nostalgic" atomosphere than a lot of classic college hockey arenas (like the one 15 minutes to the south) but it's a really great place to watch a hockey game. Also cool it share a building with the hoops court, with a main concourse/concession areas connecting the two arenas.

If there was no QU hockey, I'd venture to see more Uconn games for sure -- Hockey East guarantees some great games/opponents.

Geez, I should check this thread more often. I was with Jerry at Matignon in high school, and then after he got through a couple years of USHL, he came to Providence and was there for 4 years (we only overlapped for 2 even though we were the same age, due to the years in Omaha). Hopefully, he succeeds at Northeastern.

He's also been an assistant coach for the US world junior team and the recuriting/talent pipeline at NU is as strong as it's ever been. I think it's fair to say he will find success at NU.
