Speaking of Yale...
Cornell hosts Yale this Friday and it will be televised. It has been a long time since our men have been back at Lynah and it will undoubtedly be a lightning crowd. Check out the game at 7:30 pm on NBC Sports.
ECAC Honors For Cornell Women
After a long break and five games in eight days, two of the three ECAC Weekly Honors went to Cornell players. Brianne Jenner had a stellar week and earned Player of the Week honors. Jenner scored the game-winning goal in the Syracuse game, the SLU game, and the Clarkson game. On top of that? She scored a hat trick against Syracuse. Her second of the season. Lauren Slebodnick, after missing several games earlier in the season due to an injury, she had an amazing week in net. She stopped 49 solid chances, only allowed two goals in three games, earned a shutout against SLU, and earned her second assist of the season against SLU.
SLU Commemorates History
The New WCHA
The University of Alabama at Huntsville Chargers have been a team plagued by poor luck. First, their conference folds. Then, their program is almost gutted. It was cancelled mid-way through last season, causing players to transfer without having to serve a year in residence. Their program was on its last legs, looking for a conference. The CCHA did not want them, Atlantic Hockey did not want them, the NCHC did not invite them. The only option was the new composition of the WCHA. The WCHA formally offered UAH acceptance and UAH accepted. It is great to see Hunstville find a home.
Michigan Woes Turning Around?
It is a bit too early to tell, but Red Berensen thinks this is the best weekend that Michigan has had all season. It's a great read to see the change in the Wolverines, and we'll see what comes of it as they finish CCHA play.
Cole Bardreau Out for the Season
Everyone's favorite Big Red Gold Medalist suffered an incredibly rough (and dirty) hit on Saturday night from RPI's Burgdoerfer. Cole was down for the count as the Cornell contingent amongst the crowd was on the edge of their seat and/or standing with bated breath to make sure that Bardreau was okay. After a long time of not moving, Bardreau skated off with minor help from trainers. After missing a fair amount of the five-minute major, Bardreau was back on the ice, appearing to be tentative when it came to hits. RPI fans mentioned how Cole "dove" during the play and was embellishing. They could not have been more wrong. Mike Schafer held a press conference this week and said that Cole Bardreau would be out for the rest of the season due to a neck fracture. That sure sounds like a dive, doesn't it?
